- The dark match before tonight's WWE SmackDown from the Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore saw Asuka defeat Sonya Deville. Our correspondent wrote, "One helluva match, we all wanted it to go longer. Really great women's action."
- We noted before that WWE announced a left shoulder injury for Alexa Bliss, suffered during her loss to RAW Women's Champion Nia Jax at Sunday's Backlash pay-per-view. Bliss appeared in a backstage promo at Monday's RAW but did not wrestle. Jax took to Twitter today to respond to a fan that called her an "unsafe worker" and noted that Bliss is still scheduled for the European tour this week as she's fine. You can see the exchange and Bliss' response below:
Haha!! If you haven't heard. Alexa is perfectly fine. She couldn't beat me in the ring, so she blamed it on a fake injury. Trust me, she is perfectly fine. She's scheduled to be on tour, so you and all your troll friends can come worship your coward goddess. https://t.co/kor5YAeOLX— Lina Fanene (@NiaJaxWWE) May 8, 2018
