Bayley getting tied up by a bigger star: Sasha Banks

Bayley used to be one of the top women in the WWE and she held the RAW Women’s Champion. She was seemingly one of the faces of RAW, and before that was certainly one of the faces of the burgeoning NXT. Now? She wrestles on the Main Event show and is fodder for heels on house shows (like the one in Lincoln, NE last week).

All it took was one bad feud (with Alexa Bliss) and an injury, and Bayley fell from top dog to puppy chow. But with Bliss, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax, and Asuka (and possibly Ronda Rousey) on top of the RAW women’s title picture, why would it be worth pushing Bayley now? Well, I'm glad you asked. Here are three reasons why it needs to be done.

#3 She loves wrestling

She loves that ring

Bayley's passion is not just a part of her character, it’s who she is a person. Listen to her on Chris Jericho’s and Stone Cold Steve Austin’s podcasts. The infatuated way in which she talks about the business is so genuinely contagious, it makes you love wrestling more.

We’ve seen this adoration translate to a connection with the audience before: in NXT. She even inspired a fangirl of her own, Izzie, a young fan that would show up to each NXT taping dressed like Bayley. But we’ve yet to fully see this level of connection come to fruition on the main roster. When we do, it will be something to behold.
