#5 Carmella to get a big push
I have no doubt that when Bayley and Lacey Evans eventually clash, Bayley will retain the Championship. And this is because Bayley's reign as a heel Champion has just begun and Evans isn't ready to be the face of the division just yet, in my opinion. This is why a host of babyface challengers have to be lined up for her.
Carmella is perfect in this regard because she's already incredibly popular after her stint with R-Truth and because she too can take a loss if Bayley is to remain the Champion until WrestleMania. Someone like Alexa Bliss or even Sasha Banks as a babyface could eventually dethrone Bayley from her perch at the 'Show of Shows'.
This is precisely why Carmella was chosen to pick up a clean victory over Sonya Deville this week in what was a very short match indeed.
