By Richard Trionfo on 2017-04-24 23:05:00

We are back and Alexa Bliss makes her way to the ring.

Alexa says every week, the Superstars of Raw talk about who they like, who they don't like, who they want to fight and how they want to be champion.  Then there are some who are so bright eyed and talk about how happy they are hear and it is sunshine and lollipops.

The crowd chants 'What' and Alexa responds.  She says she did not come here to talk, she came here to beat Bayley and become the Women's Champion.

Bayley makes her way to the ring.

Bayley says Alexa is right.  She took no time proving how good she is.  She heard Alexa talking about dreams and she knows that Alexa is making fun of her.  Alexa is the type of person to talk behind your back than to your face.  Bayley says she is not just talk.  Every single day, she works her butt off for this dream and to hold on to this championship.  She knows there are women in the back who want to take the title from her.  She will stop at nothing and fight with every ounce of energy to walk out of her home town with her title.

Alexa says this is so good.  Payback is in your home town?  Does that mean your dad will be there?  So she will get to beat Bayley, humiliate her and take her title in front of Bayley's father.  She feels bad for Bayley.  She is a pathetic sheltered child.  Alexa has a question for Bayley.  She asks Bayley if she has ever kissed a boy.  Alexa says she probably knows the answer.  Alexa says she will take the title from Bayley.

Sasha Banks' music plays and she makes her way to the ring.

Alexa says we get it, part 3,000 of the Sasha/Bayley Side Show.  Alexa asks Bayley if Sasha puts love letters in her lunch when Sasha packs it.

Sasha tells the troll doll wannabe that she does not run this place.  The woman with the gold calls the shots.  On Sunday, Bayley will not only show you up, she will shut Alexa up.  Sasha says tonight she will shut Alexa up.

Alexa tells Sasha that match is not going to happen.  Alexa says she has an important match on Sunday and Sasha has become a little too unhinged.  Alexa says she does not feel safe with Sasha in the ring with her.

Sasha punches Alexa and we go to commercial.

Match Number Six:  Alexa Bliss versus Sasha Banks

Alexa with kicks to Sasha and then she stands on Sasha's back and stomps on her head.  Alexa gets a near fall.  Sasha with punches but Alexa with a clothesline and she stands on Sasha to get a near fall.  Alexa misses a knee drop and Sasha with clotheslines and a drop kick.  Sasha grabs the leg and then sends it back to the mat and Sasha with a knee strike.  Sasha puts Alexa on the ropes and hits a double knee drop and gets a near fall.  

Alexa kicks Sasha in the back.  Sasha with an arm wringer and a crossface but Alexa gets to the ropes and then goes to the floor.

Alexa things about things and she decides that she has had enough so she gets counted out.

After the match, Alexa goes to the back but Bayley stops Alexa and tries to bring Alexa back to the ring.  Alexa runs to the back, but it was only a ruse to allow her to attack Bayley from behind.

Dean Ambrose and Chris Jericho are talking in the locker room.  Dean says he wants to move past things.  Dean says he needs something from Chris so they can work well together.  Dean asks to be taken off the list.

Chris says no one gets taken off the list?  Why should he take Dean off the list if it was possible.  He says Dean still owes him $15,000 and then he was power bombed onto thumbtacks.

Dean says he probably wouldn't do it again.

Chris says he likes the jacket.  He tells Dean that when you make a peace offering, you have unmade the list.
