If The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection are the sentimental favorites to become the first-ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, the betting odds might no longer be in their favor: Thanks to a Triple Threat loss on Raw, Sasha Banks & Bayley drew the dreaded No. 1 entry into the Elimination Chamber this Sunday, meaning they’ll have to walk the longest, hardest road possible to reach the historic benchmark.
Similar to last week, Bayley had to go it alone when The Riott Squad united to cheap-shot Sasha to the sidelines, but her heroics were a lot less effective in Triple Threat rules: Tamina broke up a would-be pinfall with a superkick to the face of the former Raw Women’s Champion moments after The Huggable One had Bayley-to-Bellied Liv Morgan. The Sultress of Savagery hauled the limp Morgan to Jax for a tag, and it was all elementary from there, as The Irresistible Force planted Bayley with a Samoan Drop to send her to the starting line of the Elimination Chamber.
Of course, adversity is nothing new to Sasha & Bayley. As they mentioned in a pre-match interview, they’ve put each other through the ringer to get to this moment, but they might find the hill harder to climb with five other teams standing in their way.
