The Hugger pointed to Alexa Bliss not being here tonight. Bayley talked about how she was just like Cross when she first came to WWE. Cross was upset about last night’s attack.
They had more words while Bayley tried to convince Cross that The Goddess is using her. Bayley asked Cross if she’s OK with this, with helping someone else win a title. The Hugger said she understands the odds are against her, but she’s bringing her A-game and will do whatever it takes to win. Also, she asked what will happen when Bliss loses at Extreme Rules and then blames Cross. Bayley signed the contract.
Cross said she would help her friends, but Bayley wouldn’t understand that because her friends have abandoned her. Cross said Bliss isn’t using her and The Goddess has promised that when she wins the title – they will be the first-ever co-champions on the blue brand. However, she signed the contract and told Bayley to stick around for her match with Carmella. Cross wanted to show that when it’s time to play, Nikki has all the fun.
