In a shocking surprise to end Monday Night Raw, Bayley destroyed Becky Lynch with chair shots. The main event of Raw saw a showcase of champions as the Women’s tag team champions Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss took on both the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Champions, Becky Lynch and Bayley.
A few weeks ago, the Boss, Sasha Banks was back with a vengeance. We had not seen her since Wrestlemania. When she returned we saw her turn on her friend Natalya, and focus her sights on The Man, Becky Lynch. We saw a new edge to the Bosses Character, and she was back and better than ever as a heel.
The question then arises, where does Bayley fit in? Well, she and Sasha were the tag team champions until Wrestlemania, where Sasha took her ball and went home. Since Banks left Bayley has been on fire. Bayley won the women’s Money in the Bank Match and later in the show she cashed in that contact on Charlotte Flair for the women’s Smackdown Title. She feuded with Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross, defeating them both in singles matches, to retain the title.
Fast forward to Raw and a storyline that has been in the making for quite some time now. Will Bayley and the Boss finally feud on the main roster? Bayley was asked now that the Boss was back where does that leave her, she said she did not want to go into it. She also said she did not want to be overshadowed by Becky Lynch in their tag match.
So here we go, Lynch and Bayley against Bliss and Cross. We see Banks come out and get involved in the match. As Sasha was beating The Man with a chair, Bayley comes in to stop her. Then in an unexpected twist, Bayley repeatedly hits Lynch with the chair as Raw went off the air.
A moment we never thought would come.
It looks like we are going to get a slow burn heel turn from Bayley. She came out on Smackdown Live to a chorus of boos and told the crowd she did what she did for the kids. She did what she did because she won’t take a backseat to Lynch. She then called out Charlotte Flair. Flair came out and almost immediately Sasha’s music followed. Flair hit the ring hard attacking Bayley but was eventually subdued and laid out with a chair similar to Lynch.
Where does this leave us?
It leaves us with a heck of a compelling storyline in the women’s division. The four horsewomen of wrestling are all engaged in one big storyline and feud. Becky vs Sasha and Charlotte vs Bayley and the Clash of Champions.
Expect this angle to go on for a few months.
Bold Prediction: Bayley & Sasha will win and defend the tag titles against Lynch & Flair inside Hell in a Cell. AND both women’s heavyweight titles will be on the line in that match as well!
