Bianca Belair will reportedly defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Bayley at Extreme Rules in a ladder match.
Ever since she made her return at SummerSlam earlier this year, Bayley has been on course to challenge Bianca Belair, The Role Model even became the first person to pin the RAW Women’s Champion in 2022 at Clash at the Castle.
the two will reportedly take on each other at WWE’s upcoming premium live event, Extreme Rules, in a ladder match.
Xero News reported on Twitter that the champ will defend her title against the former Hugger in a ladder match at the show. This comes in part as the company’s new approach under Triple H is to make every match at Extreme Rules a stipulation match.
“Another Stipulation to be added to Extreme Rules Bianca v Bayley will now be a Ladder Match.”
As of now, the confirmed matches at the show are – Seth Rollins vs. Riddle in a Fight Pit, SmackDown Women’s Champion Liv Morgan against Ronda Rousey in an Extreme Rules match, and Drew McIntyre vs. Karrion Kross in a Strap Match.
The Ladder Match, coupled with the report of Bianca opening tonight’s RAW with a promo, might mean that she will be announcing, or at least challenging Bayley for the match at Extreme Rules. This, however, remains to be seen.
