ORLANDO, Fla. — While Bayley is preparing for her guaranteed rematch against NXT Women’s Champion Asuka, Alexa Bliss is trying to prove that she is the future of the division. The fierce Bliss showed why from the opening bell, as she used her nasty disposition to take control of the battle, stomping Bayley into the canvas.

Eventually, Bliss’ fury cost her, as the resilient Bayley battled back. Bliss nearly stopped Bayley in her tracks with a hard right hand, but there was no keeping the former champion down. Bayley prevented Bliss from hitting Twisted Bliss and eventually connected with the Bayley-to-Belly Suplex to get the three-count.

After the bout, Bayley acknowledged that she’s been knocked down quite a bit in recent weeks, first by Asuka in Dallas, and then last month by Nia Jax, who put her on the shelf and cut Bayley in line for a title match. But before the resilient grappler could continue, Nia stormed to the ring and got in Bayley’s face. Not backing down, the defiant Bayley challenged the towering Nia to another match, which Jax was all too happy to accept.
