Sasha and Bayley defeat Bliss and Cross: Smackdown March 13

Result: Sasha and Bayley defeat Bliss and Cross by submission.

Match: Nikki and Bayley start the match and Nikki backs Bayley into the corner. With Bayley on the mat, Alexa climbed to the top rope, but Banks pulled her out of the ring. Nikki Cross hit Banks with a cross body and Alexa used a sliding dropkick to send Smackdown to commercial break.

Back from commercial, Alexa hit Sasha with a head scissors take over, but Sasha used a drop toe hold to send Alexa into the corner. After a meteora, Sasha tagged out to Bayley. Banks and Bayley managed to isolate Alexa for a long time before she finally got the tag to Nikki Cross. After Nikki Cross hit a bulldog, she went for several roll up covers for a series of near falls.

Asuka came out to the ringside area and tossed Alexa Bliss into the ring steps. Sasha picked up the submission victory over Nikki Cross with the Bank Statement.
