Toxic Attraction’s Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne Making Smackdown Debut
The team of Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne (two-thirds of Toxic Attraction) will make their WWE Smackdown debut tonight in Montreal.
The quarterfinal match is scheduled for Smackdown tonight with the team of Natalya & Sonya Deville originally scheduled to face Zoey Stark & Nikkita Lyons.
A video was posted by WWE Hall of Famer and NXT’s WWE Vice President of Talent Development Creative Shawn Michaels addressing the matter. Michaels noted that Stark was injured in her match on NXT this past Tuesday while Lyons is “medically unavailable” so they replaced that team with the former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, Dolin & Jayne. Since Smackdown is in Montreal, saying Lyons is “medically unavailable” could have something to do with her vaccination status, but that has not been confirmed.
