Bayley can’t stop Asuka’s quest for vengeance

Bayley’s attack on Kairi Sane forced Asuka to give up the Raw Women’s title in order to make sure her friend was okay. In order to get a rematch against the current champ Sasha Banks at SummerSlam, the Empress had to deal with Banks’ bestie.

It wasn’t easy. And it involved as much interference from The Boss as you’d expect. But it was the kickass match we’d expect from Asuka & Bayley.

But when the Role Model decided to mock Sane instead of finishing Asuka, it created an opening. The Japanese Superstar countered a Sliding D into her Asuka Lock, and Bayley tapped. Banks tried for a sneak attack after the bell to no avail.

Is Sasha facing another short reign? What’s the status of the Two Woman Power Trip’s friendship after this?

Ponder that while you’re checking out the updated SummerSlam card.
