Bayley put up the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Alexa Bliss at WWE Stomping Grounds. The story they told going into this match is that Bliss felt like Bayley peaked in NXT and Bliss has gotten better. Bliss said last week that Bayley made her feel left out while in NXT while Bayley denied the accusations. Nikki Cross was in Bliss’ corner for this match.
There was a sunset flip bomb that looked kind of scary because Bliss’ head appeared to hit the middle turnbuckle. She appeared to be fine because she got up right away and continued the match. Bliss sacrificed Cross at ringside and allowed Bayley to take her out.
Cross got back in and tried to attack Bayley but the referee stepped in and that cost Bliss because it allowed Bayley to recover and get the knees when Alexa hit Twisted Bliss. Bayley retained by pinning Bliss.
