Sasha Banks & Bayley lost the WWE women’s tag team titles at Payback just this past Sunday and while immediate rematches were thought to be a thing of the past, the promotion still hands them out quite a bit. That was the case on Friday Night SmackDown this week, when they got another crack at Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler.
This story has been more about Banks and Bayley inching ever closer to a breakup, so the question was less “will they win the titles back?” and more “how will things break down even further?”
The answer: Banks injured her leg during the match, it led to the finish that saw both of them pinned by Jax, and after she was attended to by medical personnel, Bayley attacked her.
It finally happened.
The beating went on for a while, with Bayley telling Banks “you deserve all of this” while commentary wondered why. Ultimately, Banks was loaded up on a stretcher and taken out in an ambulance.
