Alexa Bliss vs. Bayley added to WWE SummerSlam card
July 16, 2020
After the fatal four-way for the Universal Championship was announced for SummerSlam earlier in the show, another match was later confirmed for the pay-per-view on tonight’s episode of Raw.
Bayley defeated Sasha Banks in a number one contender’s match to earn a shot at Alexa Bliss’ Raw Women’s Championship at SummerSlam. The finish came when Banks hit a frog splash and was going for the pin, but Bayley reversed it to get the three count.
Bliss vs. Bayley at SummerSlam will be the third time they’ve faced off on PPV this year. Bliss won the title from Bayley at Payback before then defending it against her in their kendo stick on a pole match at Extreme Rules.
There are now three matches officially set for SummerSlam on August 20th. Naomi will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Natalya, and Brock Lesnar will put his Universal title up for grabs in a fatal four-way match against Braun Strowman, Samoa Joe, and Roman Reigns.
