2. Sasha Banks attacks Bayley; causing a disqualification
For competently booked wrestling promotions, the idea of ending any pay-per-view match with anything other than an uncontroversial pinfall or submission is tantamount to sacrilege.
In WWE’s case, however, booking non-finishes for bouts that fans have paid money to see is an itch it can’t help but scratch (though McMahon wouldn’t scratch an actual itch since he probably thinks acknowledging any sort of skin inflammation is a sign of weakness).
If WWE chooses to script a contested conclusion to this match, one of the routes it could go is to have Banks run in near the end of the contest and attack Bayley, which would result in a disqualification win for the champion that doesn’t require Cross to eat another pin.
Long-term, WWE would probably be better off saving future interactions between the former best friends for the road to WrestleMania, but the allure of having Banks on television ahead of the season two premiere of The Mandalorian — which Banks stars in — might be too much for McMahon to resist.
Sure, going with a DQ finish would suck, but when has an idea being bad ever stopped WWE before? At least this way, the questionable choice would serve to add more gasoline to an already hot feud.
