Sasha Banks and Bayley did not expect their legendary Brooklyn match to turn out to be so special.
Next week, Sasha Banks and Bayley will be wrestling in a number one contender's match. The winner will face Raw Women's Champion Alexa Bliss at WWE Summerslam. In an interview at Comic-Con with IGN, Bayley and Banks discussed facing each other. After making comments about enjoying beating each other, they talked about their first match against each other.
At NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, almost two years ago, Bayley defeated Banks for the NXT Women's Championship. Both women spoke about when they knew that match, in particular, was special.
"That was the first match I was comfortable' said Banks. "I was like 'wow, there's something just amazing going on right now.' I remember being in that match and laying still after taking something and being like 'this is so cool', hearing the fans reaction just like 'wow, this is everything I dreamt of."
Bayley realized a little later than Banks the match was special, when the Four Horsewomen, including Charlotte and Becky Lynch, hugged it out in the ring. But she also mentioned how they affected a male member of the main roster.
"A lot of people ask that like 'when did you know that everybody was into it?' But I don't know, I was living it second by second. It wasn't until the end of the match, when it was all four of us in the ring, the crowd erupting, that's when I was like 'woah, this is special'. It wasn't even really meant to be. It just happened," said Bayley. "Seth Rollins cried. He'll probably be mad that I pointed that out, but he did," she later added.
The two former champions also discussed being in video games, their upcoming action figures, and their plans for Comic-Con. Bayley said being at Comic-Con shows her how far she and Banks have come.
