Bayley is calling out Trish Stratus on SmackDown Live next week

WWE announced just the other day that Trish Stratus will return to television on next week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Memphis for a special edition of “King’s Court” with Jerry Lawler. The rumor going around is that she’ll be wrestling Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam, and they obviously have to set that up.

But the current SmackDown Women’s Champion, Bayley, is already out here calling Trish out:

”I am very excited to see Trish at Tuesday night SmackDown because obviously I’m a huge fan. We’ve gotten pretty cool over the years, you know, her and Lita are coming around. But I don’t know how many times I have to say that I want to elevate this division. That just doesn’t mean the future, which is Ember Moon at SummerSlam, that means the present, the past, I want it all. I want to be the best and I want to give everybody a chance to see what this division can be.

”So I’m reaching out to you, Trish Stratus. Even though you didn’t answer my tweet, that’s okay, I forgive you. I’ll just bother you in a text or something. But honestly, in all seriousness, it would be a dream come true and it would just elevate this championship to where I want it to be, to where it needs to be, to where it deserves to be. So Tuesday, Trish, I’m calling you out. ... Trish Stratus, the past, the present, and the future. Let’s hang out, Tuesday, okay?”

Bayley, of course, already has a date for SummerSlam, as she’s booked in a title defense against Ember Moon. But that doesn’t mean a couple more names can’t be added to it, right? Or, at the very least, a future program set up.
