The Man returned to the UK to kick off this evening’s episode of Monday Night Raw, teaming with on-again, off-again rival Charlotte Flair to challenge the Kabuki Warriors for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
About ten minutes into the title match, NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler made a surprise appearance, emerging through the fans to watch the bout up-close from ringside.
It appeared that the “Queen of Spades” actually had no plans to get involved in the action, and was simply content to scout her upcoming opponent – that is, until Bayley marched down to the ring and attacked Baszler, attempting to gain a measure of revenge for the beatdowns suffered in recent weeks.
The distraction allowed the Kabuki Warriors to trap Lynch and retain their titles. With the damage done, the NXT Superstar took her leave, while a scorned Smackdown Women’s Champion took out her aggressions on The Man.
Baszler, Bayley and Lynch are set to battle in a triple threat match at WWE Survivor Series.
