Bayley Teases Exciting Stipulation Against Sasha Banks

WWE is building up to a major showdown with Bayley and Sasha Banks set to go at each other’s throats soon. There has been a lot of talk over when and where the match will be. Bayley may have just given us the answer.

In a recent post on Instagram, the SmackDown Women’s Champion dropped a big hint. The picture is of her holding a steel chair, with no caption attached.

This could mean that she will face Sasha Banks at Clash of Champion in a Steel Chair Match. Bayley will defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Banks and will spare no brutality.

Bayley and Banks were the most clinical team a couple of months ago. Using their chemistry as best friends, they were able to make short work of every competitor. 

At one point, the “Golden Role Models” held every belt in the Women’s Division. However, the way was only down after this.

Banks first lost her Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka. She was put off by the fact that Bayley hadn’t helped her the same way as she did. With this, the tear in their friendship began.

After a series of altercations following this, Banks did the unthinkable and contributed to the Tag Team Championship loss to Shayna Baszler and Nia Jax.

Bayley soon found out what her best friend had done and brutally assaulted Banks after the rematch. Destroying her incapacitated partner, Bayley walked away, making a statement.

The toxic friendship had broke, and now the bad blood will spew all over the ring at last. Banks looks to avenge herself for the treatment she got from her “best friend”.

Sasha Banks has always been the pivot that carries the team through everything. Covering Bayley’s mistakes, she doesn’t deserve to be treated the way she has been.

The two Superstars are also WWE’s best attractions. Their match last week on SmackDown pulled SmackDown to its lockdown peak.

The numbers beat all WWE shows that had taken place in the past few months including Raw. We could see ratings blow through the roof at Clash of Champions. Sasha Banks and Bayley are heading into a bitter fight, while everyone else eagerly watches with a bag of popcorn.

Giants not taking favorable Nick Mullens matchup lightly vs. 49ers

Giants not taking favorable Nick Mullens matchup lightly vs. 49ers

The Giants opened the season against Ben Roethlisberger, playing his first game since undergoing surgery on his throwing elbow. Week 2 presented a matchup against the ever-inconsistent Mitch Trubisky.

Still, the Giants enter Sunday looking for their first win.

A meeting with the 49ers’ Nick Mullens — a 25-year-old undrafted quarterback out of Southern Mississippi, who last week threw his first regular-season pass since 2018 — is the most inviting yet.

Niners coach Kyle Shanahan announced Friday that Mullens will start Sunday for the first time since Dec. 30, 2018, with Jimmy Garoppolo sidelined by an ankle injury he suffered in last week’s win against the Jets.

“Mullens is a talented quarterback, who has some really nice traits about him,” Giants defensive back Julian Love said. “He’s a guy that can really throw the ball. We’re locked in just like we’re playing [Garoppolo] out there and that’s our mindset with it. He’s a quarterback in the National Football League, so he has talent.”

Talent varies. Joe Montana was an NFL quarterback. So was Tim Tebow.

Instead of facing the quarterback who led the 49ers to a fourth-quarter lead in the Super Bowl last season, the Giants will prepare for someone who was cut by San Francisco twice, and who only was promoted from the practice squad in 2018 after Garoppolo tore his ACL.

Starting the final eight games of that season, Mullens threw for 2,277 yards, 13 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, while completing 64.2 percent of his passes. The Giants got the better of Mullens in a November 2018 matchup, when he completed 27 of 39 passes for 250 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions in a 27-23 San Francisco loss.

“We’ll use all the resources we have, whether that’s players on the field and they remember something about it, or coaches in the building at the time, and all of the game tape, obviously,” Giants head coach Joe Judge said. “Nick’s a good quarterback. He’s a competitive dude. He’s a tough dude, Southern Miss mentality, really overachieving-type guys. He’s comfortable in the pocket, gets the ball out of his hands really quick. He’s an accurate passer.

“I can’t say over and over enough how competitive this guy is and how much we expect this guy to fight and give his team every advantage possible.”

Except Mullens steps back into MetLife Stadium at a disadvantage, playing without injured running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman, as well as All-Pro tight end George Kittle.

Replacing Garoppolo in the 31-13 win last week, Mullens completed 8 of 11 passes for 71 yards, with no touchdowns and one interception.

“It’s my fourth year. There’s really no excuses to why I shouldn’t perform,” Mullens said after the game. “And so that’s kind of what has kept pushing me.”

The Giants have motivation, too. One of the toughest games on their schedule no longer looks so lopsided.

Tom Thibodeau wants to build Knicks using Pat Riley’s Heat model

Tom Thibodeau wants to build Knicks using Pat Riley's Heat model

Tom Thibodeau knows he’s building the Knicks from scratch.

But Thibodeau has a Miami model to which to aspire — with one of his idols, president Pat Riley, constructing another edition ready for the NBA Finals. Ironically, Riley built this version with one of Thibodeau’s own pupils, Jimmy Butler, at the fulcrum.

Thibodeau would love to build the Knicks into Heat Northeast and says he has adopted Riley’s “core values.’’ The Heat, who entered Friday night one victory away from the NBA Finals with a 3-1 lead on Boston, embody everything Thibodeau stands for.

That includes the key presence of Butler, who was molded by Thibodeau in Chicago. Thibodeau has received a lot of credit for turning Butler into an all-encompassing star, but ironically it led to his ouster from Minnesota.

“I’m thrilled for him,’’ Thibodeau said after the third day of team practices as part of the club’s “Delete 8” OTAs. “It’s a great story. It’s a guy who was drafted 30th and made himself better every year. Even now, an established All-Star, he still works incredibly hard.

“He plays very unselfishly, plays to win. He’s not about statistics. I knew that from the start with him. I never envisioned him being this good. I always thought he’d be a good player. But he’s made himself into a superstar because of his intelligence, talent and work ethic. He’s a guy who constantly studies and brings about the best in his teammates.”

When Butler was a free agent in 2019, the Knicks’ past management wasn’t interested in Butler’s leadership and defense. Thibodeau, as former president and coach of the Timberwolves, traded for Butler in 2017, but it backfired.

As it happened, Butler’s hard-nosed approach wasn’t accepted by Minnesota’s ownership, management or their young players. Butler asked to be traded and Thibodeau was soon out of a job.

“Butler didn’t like some of the guys’ lack of professionalism,” one NBA source told The Post. “[Jimmy] and Tom had long talks about how to deal with it. When Butler realized it was unsolvable, he lashed out at the organization. His clock was ticking on his prime and didn’t want to waste it and forced his way out. Tommy was telling him to have patience, see it through.”

Had Butler stuck it out, Thibodeau probably would still be in Minnesota. Asked if he has been watching Miami’s playoff run and wondering what-if, Thibodeau smiled.

“I never work backwards,” he said. “Minnesota was Minnesota and now there’s a new chapter. It’s New York. And that’s really what I think about all the time. It’s all consuming. How can we get better, improve? How do we bring the best out of the group? I’m looking forward to this challenge.”

And a challenge it is. Thibodeau is the seventh Knicks coach in eight years and the franchise has missed the playoffs for seven straight seasons. By contrast, Erik Spoelstra has been Miami’s coach for 12 years. Thibodeau noted the Heat’s “continuity’’ as vital.

“I have great respect for the Heat organization, the way they play, what Pat Riley has done there, Erik Spoelstra,” Thibodeau said. “They have great ownership in Mickey Arison. They’ve done it for a long time. The continuity has been important for them. They’ve evolved as the game has evolved. The things they believe in have stood the test of time — fundamentals, intensity, their work ethic. Those are all Pat Riley trademarks. I know Knicks fans are familiar with that from when Pat was here.”

Thibodeau never worked alongside Riley, who left the Knicks for Miami in 1995. But Thibodeau felt the ghost of Riley when he joined Jeff Van Gundy’s Knicks staff in 1996.

“When I came here the first time. I had come from Philadelphia, and it was just so different,’’ Thibodeau siad. “[Riley] was so far ahead of this time and, Jeff carried over a lot of those things. Pat did it in L.A. He won a championship there, then he got the Knicks to the doorstep. To do it several times in Miami. He’s rebuilt the organization three or four times.

“He’s at the top of my list,’’ he added. “He’s been great to me over the years, and I’ve taken a lot of things that he’s said to me. I’ve watched their organization very closely. You understand what their core values are.”

After staging a week of individual workouts governed by safety protocols, Thibodeau still has at least five days left for group practices. He hopes to have “a voice’’ in the Nov. 18 draft, but the franchise feels farther than 1,300 miles away from Miami.

“There’s a base you have that you believe in. but you also want to study the team you have and what they’re good at,’’ Thibodeau said. “The important thing for us is establishing the conditioning and discipline part and also going over all the fundamentals and starting from a zero base. We’re building a foundation.’’

Yankees' Aaron Boone unloads more F-bombs after an ejection

Yankees manager Aaron Boone was ejected Friday night for arguing balls and strikes. He didn’t deliver a viral line like “savages in the line” this time, but he made sure the F-bombs returned.

Boone could be heard throughout an empty Yankee Stadium cursing out home plate umpire John Tumpane, who called Aaron Judge out on strikes on a pitch that was clearly below the zone and called another low pitch a strike on the next batter, Aaron Hicks.

The show began after Tumpane gave Boone the thumb.

“Just because you f—ing kicked the first one, don’t keep kicking it,” Boone yelled as he walked out to meet Tumpane. “Kicked,” in baseball parlance, is akin to “blowing” or “messing up” a play or call.

Boone even incorporated profanity while complimenting Marlins starter Sandy Alcantara for his “good f—ing” sinker. “Those pitches are not f—ing strkes,” Boone said as he struggled to keep his pinstriped gaiter from sliding off his face. Good thing he isn’t coaching in the NFL.

“Get it the f— together. This s— matters,” Boone also told Tumpane. The Yankees were playing for home-field advantage in the first round of the American League playoffs. The Marlins were trying to clinch a berth in the National League playoffs.

Last year, Boone unleashed “savages in the box,” a defense of his hitters, while he cursed out umpire Brennan Miller following an ejection. The phrase became internet-famous, with T-shirts made to memorialize it. MLB suspended Boone for a game and the manager apologized for cursing.

He might have to go through the same routine this weekend.
