The Boss, in her hometown of Boston, winning her way to SummerSlam to challenge for her fourth Raw Women’s Championship. If that’s not fate, we don’t know what is, though Nia Jax certainly made it difficult for Sasha Banks to punch her ticket from Beantown to Brooklyn, where Alexa Bliss lies in wait.
With the smug Bliss watching from an elevated lifeguard’s chair at ringside, Jax powered her way to an early advantage, ruthlessly swinging Banks into the barricade and tossing her about the ring. Yet, The Boss slowly weathered the storm with strategically-timed submission and roll-up attempts, escaping the ring when it seemed like she was in danger of being pinned.
Banks finally pulled ahead by kicking Jax’s hamstring out while she was perched on the second rope, locking in the Bank Statement moments later to the point of a near submission victory. When Jax hauled herself to her feet with The Boss on her shoulder, Banks floated over into a thunderous tornado DDT and a second excruciating Bank Statement that forced Nia to tap out. Hello, Brooklyn.
