WWE SmackDown: Stephanie McMahon Announces Tri-Brand Battle Royal to Crown #1 Contender for Women’s Championship

Sasha Banks and Bayley have been the hardest working women in WWE over the past few months since the Women’s Tag Team Championships have been traveling to all three WWE brands in order to defend their Championships.

This means that Bayley and Sasha have made many enemies throughout their current storyline and now thanks to Stephanie McMahon, Bayley could be forced to face them.

Stephanie McMahon appeared via video link on this week’s SmackDown to deliver the bad news to Bayley when it comes to her challenger for SummerSlam.

McMahon announced that there would be a tri-brand battle royal next week on SmackDown that would determine the number one contender to Bayley’s Championship. WWE has not announced any of the Superstars who will be in the Triple Brand Battle Royal, or how many entrants there will be.

If Asuka is able to defeat Bayley on Monday Night Raw next week then she will be handed a rematch against Sasha Banks for the Raw Women’s Championship that she only lost last week.

McMahon seemed annoyed that Bayley and The Boss were able to find a loophole in her stipulated match for the Raw Women’s Championship and this announcement could now allow a number of women from NXT to be called up to the main roster.

Could the winner of this match be the one to finally end Bayley’s record-breaking reign as SmackDown Women’s Champion?
