Title Change Takes Place On WWE SmackDown

Closing out an eventful night...

Amid all of the hoopla surrounding the Draft and the reorganization of both main rosters, for the second straight week on FOX, SmackDown gives us a notable title change. And this one came with some character modification.

Five days after losing the title at Hell in a Cell, Bayley regained the SmackDown Women's title from Charlotte Flair in the evening's main event. Bayley countered an attempt at a Figure Eight by cradling Flair with a small package to score the pin.

Most notable was the change in Bayley's overall character. During her entrance, Bayley stopped in the midst of her Bayley Buddies, and her cheerful theme song abruptly cut off.

She then produced a sharp implement that she used to slash all of the Bayley Buddies, one by one. In addition, she no longer wears her hair in the top ponytail.

After the match, celebrating amid new music that is unquestionably less sugary than her time-tested theme song, Bayley told the crowd over the mic, "Hey bitches - screw all of you," before exiting.
