RAW Women’s Championship Match: Bayley (c) vs Alexa Bliss

Bayley defends her RAW Women’s Championship in her hometown of San Jose, California. However, this might not necessarily be a good thing. The last 2 women to defend the RAW Women’s Championship in their hometown both lost the title. Those women, of course, are Sasha Banks, in Boston, and Charlotte, in Charlotte. The combination of superstars losing in their hometown and the challenger, especially in this case, being the real deal makes this match very interesting.

That being said, this could end up anywhere from kicking off the show (which I think would imply a Bayley win) to being the co-main event. I would even say there’s a scenario, depending on the finish of the other matches, that this could close the show. Overall I think these two women can have a good match regardless of where they are placed.
