Bayley Retains SmackDown Women’s Title At WWE Stomping Grounds


Bayley is still on top of the women’s division on the WWE SmackDown Live roster.

Bayley successfully retained the SmackDown Women’s Title over Alexa Bliss at the WWE Stomping Grounds pay-per-view event in Tacoma, WA at the Tacoma Dome.

Bliss earned this title match opportunity when she beat Charlotte Flair and Carmella in a triple threat match on the June 4th episode of SmackDown Live. Although Bliss is technically a RAW star, she appeared on this show and became the rightful title contender via the wild card rule.

Bayley became the champion when she won the women’s Money in the Bank ladder match and later that night cashed in the contract on Charlotte Flair to win the SmackDown Women’s Championship. This happened after Flair had beaten Becky Lynch to win the title yet again.

It turns out that Bayley and Bliss have some history as Bliss beat Bayley to win the RAW Women’s Championship at the 2017 Payback pay-per-view event. As a result, it marked the fact that Bliss became the first woman to hold both the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Titles.
