WWE Payback takes place just a week following SummerSlam which means the company only has a week to build the card for the August 30th pay-per-view.
On Wrestling Observer Radio, it was noted that WWE’s current direction will likely see the Women’s Tag Team Championship being defended at Payback. Sasha Banks and Bayley will put the gold on the line against the hard-hitting team of Asuka and Shayna Baszler.
WWE hasn’t booked the Women’s Tag Team Titles for SummerSlam which makes it all the more evident for the company to put the titles up for grabs on August 30th.
At present, Sasha and Bayley will defend their respective RAW Women’s Title and SmackDown Women’s Title against Asuka this Sunday at The Biggest Party Of Summer.
Since The Empress is in for double duty, it would be quite disappointing to see her walking out of the Amway Center without gold around her waist.
Meanwhile, Shayna Baszler is busy dominating the RAW Underground scene. The Queen Of Spades brought her 4 Horsewomen stablemates, namely, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke to Shane McMahon’s fight club this week, leading to speculations that a new women’s faction could be on the horizon for the red brand.
