#2 Sasha Banks challenges Bayley

While it can be argued that as a heel champion on SmackDown, Bayley has been doing her best work since moving up to the main roster, a single glance over the remaining women’s roster on the blue brand is enough to realize that there’s an issue here.

Not to take away from any of the female competitors on the brand, but there currently doesn’t seem to be a single legitimate challenger to the women’s champion on the entire brand.

If she’s healthy by the time WrestleMania rolls around, Sasha Banks absolutely needs to challenge Bayley for her title. If this means going through five other competitors in yet another chamber match this year - so be it. If this means a heel vs heel dynamic - so be it.

SmackDown needs a Bayley vs. Banks program now more than ever to bring back legitimacy to the women’s roster.

Yes, there are reports of Banks sustaining an ankle injury, but we need to hope she's back in time to kick-start her own path to WrestleMania - and there's no greater option than challenging the current SmackDown Women's Champion.

On a card which most likely will feature two gigantic women’s matches elsewhere in Lynch-Baszler and Flair-Ripley, Smackdown will need to go all out with its offering.

There is no need for an uninspired one-on-one or multi-women bout. Let The Boss and the champion milk their history together for a successful build, and go out at WrestleMania to remind the WWE Universe of why exactly we fell in love with women's wrestling in the first place.
