Two Title Matches And A Love Story Set For 7/31 WWE SmackDown

Nikki Cross has earned her rematch.

On SmackDown, Nikki Cross defeated her best friend and tag team partner Alexa Bliss to earn a shot at Bayley and the SmackDown Women's Title on next Friday's SmackDown. Cross picked up the victory with a cradle after it looked like she might not be able to continue due to her injured ribs.

The match was set-up by Bayley, who said Cross needed to earn a SmackDown Women's Title rematch by defeating her best friend Bliss after Cross campaigned for a rematch due to Bayley cheating at the Horror Show at Extreme Rules.

Later in the night, Gran Metalik won a fatal four-way against Lince Dorado, Shorty G, and Drew Gulak. The victory earned him a shot at the Intercontinental Championship match against AJ Styles next Friday. After the bout, Styles and Metalik traded slaps before Styles was sent retreating following a springboard DDT.

WWE is also promising that the "love story" between Otis and Mandy Rose will continue next Friday. Also set for next Friday is Naomi vs. Lacey.
