5Evans & Bliss Picked Up A Win
RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch and Lacey Evans sat down for interview about their rematch at Stomping Grounds.
Lynch stated that Evans should beat her because she is bigger and strong. Becky said that she simply cannot allow someone like her to be champion. She added that being the champ is her obsession and Lacey is just another obstacle that she has to overcome.
Evans claimed that “The Man” was just a mask and what really drives Becky is fear of falling back into obscurity. Evans then sniffed the air and said that she can smell the fear on Becky and vowed to take the RAW Women’s Championship at Stomping Grounds.
Later on RAW, Becky Lynch teamed up with Bayley against Evans and Alexa Bliss. Nikki Cross was ringside for the match. Lacey and Bliss controlled the match early and isolated Bayley in the corner of the ring.
