According to Alex McCarthy from Talk Sport, WWE is considering a six-pack challenge matchup for the SmackDown women's championship at WrestleMania 36. The report states that the names attached so far would be Sasha Banks, Naomi, Carmella, Lacey Evans, and the champion Bayley. No word on who the sixth name would be at this time. Alexa Bliss's name was thrown around, but she's reportedly being saved for a tag team matchup with the Kabuki Warriors at the "Show of Shows."
The report also mentions how the original plan was supposed to be Banks versus Bayley, but due to Sasha's recent injury they needed to change course. There's also speculation that Banks and Bayley would prefer to hold off their big singles-feud until later down the line at an event when they could have more time and a proper build. As always...things are subject to chance. Check out McCarthy's tweets below.
I asked if Alexa Bliss was the other, but I'm told Bliss/Cross will challenge Kabuki Warriors in addition to Divas of Doom in a thee-way tag.— Alex McCarthy (@AlexM_talkSPORT) March 8, 2020
Sasha V Bayley was an original plan, but I'm told Sasha's injury caused them to change course.
I hate tweeting things like this because WWE/wrestling is so fluid and the source even said 'as of this morning' alluding to the possibility of change.— Alex McCarthy (@AlexM_talkSPORT) March 8, 2020
But, they haven't let me down yet so let's see!
