The July 11th episode of WWE SmackDown aired live from Golden 1 Center in Sacramento, CA. Here are 4 takeaways from this week’s show:
3Bayley Easily Defeated Nikki Cross
Alexa Bliss had a conversation with Nikki Cross backstage. Bliss convinced Cross that Bayley was really a bully and secured Nikki a match against her tonight. Bliss told Cross to not hold back during the match.
Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss came down to the ring later in the show to Alexa’s theme, even though she wasn’t the one wrestling in the match. Brilliant.
Bayley controlled the match early and Cross rolled out of the ring to regroup. Bayley went for a Dropkick but Cross caught her in the ring apron and beat her down. Back in the ring, Cross planted Bayley with a Neckbreaker for a two count.
Bayley connected with a running knee and followed it up with a Splash for a near fall. Alexa hopped up on the ring apron for a distraction and Cross capitalized with a roll-up for a two count. Bayley leveled Cross and then made her way up to the top rope. Bayley pointed at Bliss and then delivered an Elbow Drop for the pinfall victory.
