10 Pivotal Moments from the Women's Evolution in WWE
#9 Sasha and Bayley battle at the first NXT: Takeover Brooklyn
As stated before, NXT is the birthplace of the Women's Evolution. No two women exemplify the spirit of change in this regard than Sasha Banks and Bayley. Sasha Banks had her call up to the main roster first, and was due to 'pass the torch' of top female NXT star before she left for good. Bayley was chosen as her successor, partially due to the huge surge in popularity that the Hugger had enjoyed.
The two would clash at NXT Takeover Brooklyn I in a mach that is considered by many to be the best in ring performance of 2015 in the entire WWE, not just NXT or even the women's roster. Even the ever picky Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter rated the match four and a half out of five.
Bayley and Sasha, whether they intended to or not, put the entire WWE roster on notice with their bar raising performance.
