Now that WWE has gotten behind the Charlotte-Sasha Banks rivalry and is promoting it as potentially the best the red brand has to offer, I have one question to ask – “What about Bayley?”
What happens to the girl next door that everyone loves? Where does she fall in the pecking order of women in the company and how will the recent call-up from NXT insert herself in the title picture?
Nia Jax wrote on her Twitter account earlier in the week that it looked as if the women’s division on Raw was a three-star race and the glamazon wasn’t part of the title picture.
For now, she is the woman who could be the most dominant performer on the roster since Kharma is a mid-level talent until otherwise notified. In the meantime, WWE is cashing in on the fact Banks just won the Women’s Title on Monday night in the main event.
THE MAIN EVENT! That doesn’t happen often – which tells all of us this storyline between Banks and Charlotte is special. The rivalry between Bayley and Banks could be just as vital to the growth of this promotion as it was in NXT.
It just needs a nudge or a chance to blossom further. As of now, Bayley is the third wheel, and that is a stretch because it would seem that WWE has put all its eggs in the current title picture with Banks and Charlotte. That being said, here are five booking options for Bayley moving forward.
Pick a winner
I think there is still a movement for Bayley to meet Banks at WrestleMania 33 with the title on the line. For now, there is a bit of a pause. The issue is in a Triple Threat match, as we have seen with these three and Charlotte, Banks and Becky Lynch, something gets lost.
Like the men who compete, the action is fierce at some times and stuttered at others. I can see Bayley taking on the winner of the Banks-Charlotte match from Hell in a Cell and building on that rivalry heading toward the Royal Rumble and beyond.
