Bayley reflects on the bout.
The women's evolution in WWE has reached new heights over the past number of years. It dates back to Paige becoming the first-ever NXT Women's Champion to having the first-ever Women's Money In The Bank Ladder match and going back to Trish Stratus and Lita main eventing Monday Night RAW to the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match and most recently the first-ever all-women's pay-per-view 'Evolution'.
A match that fans specifically feel kick-started the women's evolution in WWE into overdrive was Sasha Banks and Bayley's NXT Women's Championship match at the first-ever NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn show. Sasha and Bayley put on a bout that made the current WWE Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins and their fellow Four Horsewomen Charlotte Flair and SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch shed tears. Bayley feels that the match with Sasha at TakeOver: Brooklyn was without question the most important match of her career and she explained why while being interviewed by Planeta Wrestling.
“Yeah, definitely, and I think for all the obvious reasons it was special, it was magical. We got to share that moment with Becky and Charlotte and Sasha and myself in there at the end of the night." Bayley continued, "It’s my first championship win, but that was really a pivotal moment for NXT. It really helped me, and kinda made people take me a little more serious, and it was definitely a game changer for me and just showed part of my evolution.”
Sasha Banks and Bayley are currently a duo and they were in action against Nia Jax and Tamina this past Monday on RAW. To read up on how that match played out, click here.
