Following her loss to Alexa Bliss in their Kendo Stick-on-a-pole-match at Extreme Rules last weekend, it seems that Bayley has now gone to the back of the line when it comes to the Raw Women’s Championship.
Nia Jax and Sasha Banks look like the likely candidates to step up and challenge Alexa Bliss after Bayley has been absent from Raw over the past two weeks.
This week Bayley took part in a sit-down interview with The Savior of Misbehavior Corey Graves and as awkward as the interview between them seemed, the ending was probably the most uncomfortable part.
Bayley asked Corey if they could end the interview on a hug, something that made the WWE commentator feel awkward, before he told Bayley afterwards that he needed a cigarette.
Dave Meltzer has since speculated on the Wrestling Observer Radio that this could be the beginning of a romantic angle between Graves and Bayley and this could be how WWE allow Bayley’s character to move forward now that she has been taken out of the title picture.
Corey has been used much more on WWE TV lately with the new storyline involving Kurt Angle, so it would be interesting to see him used as part of a bigger angle since he has been stuck behind the commentary desk for a long time.
Bayley’s loss at Extreme Rules has hindered her much more than WWE realizes and now somehow the company has to build her back up and if this means that Graves and Bayley need to work together for a while, then it could be an interesting few months for the former Women’s Champion.
