Nikki Cross is the next contender to Bayley's SmackDown women's championship
With Charlotte Flair shipped off to Monday Night Raw in the Draft, WWE needed to find the next top contender for the SmackDown women's championship held by Bayley. The way they went about doing so was booking a Six-Pack Challenge for this week's episode of Friday Night SmackDown.
The participants: Mandy Rose, Sonya Deville, Carmella, Nikki Cross, Lacey Evans, and Dana Brooke
The winner, after what was actually a pretty damn good match: Nikki Cross
This is interesting to note not just because we'll be getting a future Bayley vs. Cross title match but because Cross was traded to the blue brand alongside Alexa Bliss. The thought was the two would remain together as a tag team. Bliss wasn't even mentioned during all this, though that obviously doesn't mean she won't be incorporated into the story at a future time.
We'll have to wait and see.
For now, Cross is the top contender to the title.
