Mixed Tag Match Set For 6/25 WWE SmackDown

The match between Asuka and Bayley was set up last Monday by Sasha Banks, who said Asuka must get through her best friend if she wanted a Raw Women's Title rematch at SummerSlam. Asuka was able to overcome Bayley on Raw, winning with the Asuka Lock.

Banks and Asuka previously met at The Horror Show at Extreme Rules, which ended with Banks walking out with the Raw Women's Title after Bayley interfered, took the referee's shirt, and counted the pinfall on behalf of her best friend. The result was declared invalid, leading to a rematch on the July 27 WWE Raw. Banks picked up an official victory on that night, winning the Raw Women's Title after Asuka was counted out, leaving the ring to save Kairi Sane from an attack by Bayley.
