Bayley looked to get the upper hand on Shayna Baszler ahead of Survivor Series
In reality, Bayley wanted to get a jump on Baszler.
Noting Bayley’s issues with being attacked from behind, Baszler hit the ring and dared her newfound rival to go face to face with her tonight. The SmackDown Women’s Champion attempted to turn the tables with a sudden sneak attack, entering the ring undetected and blindsiding The Queen of Spades. Baszler battled back, twice locking in Bayley in the Kirifuda Clutch and forcing Bayley into self-preservation mode. Bayley eventually broke free of the dreaded hold, slamming Baszler into the guard rail and the ring post to escape Shayna’s deadly clutches, at least for one more night.
Baszler wouldn’t remain on the ringside floor for long though, as she sat up on the canvas and stared daggers into Bayley, a look that would surely carry over into Survivor Series.
