Bayley's Damage Control faction picked up its first championship reign on this week's Monday Night Raw, defeating Raquel Gonzalez and Aliyah. The two teams met in the finals to crown new champions last month, only for Aliyah and Gonzalez to pull off the shocking upset. The two tried to win the match the exact same way this time around, though Dakota Kai managed to kick out of Aliyah's pin attempt at the last second. Aliyah then hit a Springboard Fameasser, but Bayley moved her leg onto the rope to break the count. Iyo Sky took out Gonzalez with a Moonsault outside the ring, while Kai hit her sunset backstabber finisher to pick up the win.
Both Kai and Sky held the women's tag titles down in NXT, but with reinforced focus on the women's division under Triple H's leadership, it's very possible that this reign will be longer than any of their reigns from the developmental brand. The group also has the chance to be draped in gold soon as Bayley continues to pursue Bianca Belair's Raw Women's Championship.
