At one point, the rumor was a singles match between friends and on-again-off-again enemies Sasha Banks and Bayley would become the unprecedented third women’s singles match on the WrestleMania 34 card.
It didn’t happen, but their story was basically the story of the Kickoff show’s Women’s Battle Royal, and there was a lot of speculation about that leading to pay-per-view (PPV) matches for their feud down the road.
An maybe that will still happen. But for now, they’ll have another match on Raw next week (April 16):
JUST ANNOUNCED: @itsBayleyWWE & @SashaBanksWWE’s animosity will reach a boiling point when they battle on #RAW NEXT WEEK! #RAWAfterMania pic.twitter.com/DPZmmh8TmU— WWE (@WWE) April 10, 2018
Now, that episode also features the latest Superstar Shakeup, so it’s gonna be seen by a lot of people, and potentially generate much more interest for future matches or plot twists in the saga of The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection.
Or it could be the blow-off for now with one of them getting shuffled over to SmackDown in the Shakeup, ending the whole thing - or at least putting it on pause.
We shall see. In the meantime, let us know what you think about this announcement below.
