During the Clash of Champions Kick Off show, host Charly Caruso announced that Nikki Cross, Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler have not been medically cleared to compete at tonight’s WWE Clash of Champions pay-per-view.

WWE.com has also released the following announcement addressing the changes to tonight’s Clash of Champions card:

“Bayley will address the SmackDown Women’s Championship situation tonight on WWE Clash of Champions with her opponent unable to compete. Nikki Cross, who was scheduled to challenge for the title, is not medically cleared. Additionally, Shayna Baszler & Nia Jax are not medically cleared and will not defend the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship against The Riott Squad tonight.
