Authors Of Pain Return To Action
We noted before how one half of the former NXT Tag Team Champions Authors Of Pain, Akam was reported to have been cleared to return to action earlier this month.
The injured star, along with his partner returned to action this week and wrestled in a SmackDown Brand Live event from Glens Falls, NY on Monday Night.
This duo competed against the team of Ali and Matt Hardy but they were not able to win this bout. It’s worth mentioning that despite working the SmackDown event, the tag team is still listed as part of the Raw roster.
Nikki Cross Is Ready To Play
This week’s episode of SmackDown Live saw a confrontation between Nikki Cross and Bayley with the Goddess Alexa Bliss missing the show.
Cross then went on to defeat Carmella in a one on one bout. After the show went off the air, Nikki was interviewed backstage and in the interview, as seen below the former NXT Star explains that she is ready to play:
Nikki Cross won a beat the clock challenge on this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw. The win earned her the right to choose the stipulation for Alexa Bliss and Bayley’s match at Extreme Rules PPV and she chose to make the bout a 2 on 1 handicap match.
Now Bayley will be defending her title against both Cross and Alexa Bliss and it would be interesting to see what will happen if the duo of Nikki and Alexa end up winning this match.
