On the October 3rd episode of WWE Raw, Bianca Belair and Bayley signed a contract for their Raw Women’s Championship ladder match at Extreme Rules. Like most contract signings in WWE, the segment ended in a brawl – but not only did Bayley attack Belair in the ring, she’d dispatched Dakota Kai and IYO SKY to lay waste to Asuka and Alexa Bliss backstage as well.
Thanks to the storyline injuries suffered on that night, neither woman has been seen on WWE Raw since. Belair was able to defeat Bayley at WWE Extreme Rules despite not having her friends in her corner, but Damage CTRL won’t leave the issue alone, and the two are scheduled for a rematch at WWE Crown Jewel. This time, Belair and Bayley will face off in a Last Man Standing match.
Asuka & Alexa Bliss Helped Bianca Belair Against Damage CTRL Before Winning The WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships
However, on the October 31st edition of WWE Raw, Asuka and Alexa Bliss made their returns to the red brand to even the odds against Damage CTRL once again. In the opening match on the show, Bianca Belair took on Nikki Cross, who’d interfered in her match against Bayley last week. Belair was able to defeat Cross despite the interference of Dakota Kai, IYO Sky, and Bayley, but after the match, Asuka and Bliss made their surprise return to help even the numbers game alongside Belair.
However, Bliss and Asuka weren’t done for the night, and in a backstage segment, they challenged Dakota Kai and IYO SKY to a WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship match later in the night after declaring that they would be in Bianca Belair’s corner at WWE Crown Jewel. Both women have previous reigns with the prestigious titles with different partners.
The match between the teams took place in the main event of WWE Raw, and in the end, Asuka and Little Miss Bliss were victorious when Bliss secured the pinfall win. The crowd in Dallas, TX rallied around the women as they celebrated their victory.
