During today’s installment of Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer discussed the Bayley vs. Mickie James vs. Dana Brooke triple threat match that took place on Monday’s episode of RAW. While Bayley ended up getting the victory in the match and earning the spot in the traditional 5 vs. 5 Survivor Series spot, the outcome of this match changed two previous times.
Meltzer said original plans had Bayley winning but WWE changed their minds and wanted to have Paige return and win the match instead. Officials decided then again to change the outcome and went with Bayley, despite the company bringing Paige in on Monday night.
PWInsider indicated on Monday that Paige sharing backstage photos of her with Alicia Fox prior to her return could have changed the plans to bring her back on Monday’s show.
