One down, three to go.
WWE.com’s preview for the show reveals that Raw’s Lacey Evans will “Wild Card” to SmackDown LIVE tonight (May 28). There, she’ll fave Women’s champion Bayley. There’s no mention of it being a title match, so it’s probably safe to assume that it isn’t. While we’re making assumptions, we’ll also guess that interference by Charlotte Flair will either cost the champ the match, or trigger a disqualification finish.
But who knows! Maybe Evans will be the next official challenger for Bayley’s SmackDown Women’s belt. They already faced off in a tag match won by Becky Lynch and the Hugster last week, and the Sassy Southern Belle did play a role in Bayley winning the title in the first place (if Lacey hadn’t helped Charlotte beat Lynch at Money in the Bank, Bayley wouldn’t have had a heel to cash in on). With the Wild Card, a cross-brand championship feud is possible.
Unpredictable! It also might mean other blue brand women’s stars won’t get on television tonight, but we’ll find out about that in a few hours.
In addition to Evans/Bayley and the already announced Kofi Kingston vs. Kevin Owens bout, the late-publishing official preview is also promoting Dolph Ziggler as a guest on the KO Show, teasing advancement in the Roman Reigns/Shane McMahon program, and wondering if R-Truth will make it through another show as 24/7 champ.
