WWE News: Sasha Banks attacks Bayley on Raw
What's the story?
Sasha Banks and Bayley have been building a feud ever since Banks turned on Bayley back at Elimination Chamber, but it seems that finally, the women got physical backstage on Raw this week.
In case you didn't know...
Banks and Bayley's careers have been entwined ever since they worked together in NXT, it was Banks that Bayley defeated to win her first Championship in WWE back at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn back in 2015, a match that was voted match of the year.
It was also Banks and Bayley that competed in the first ever Women's Ironman match at Takeover: Respect a few months later but it seems that in recent years the two women have been seen as best friends.
Bayley's main roster debut was to partner Banks and they have been side by side ever since until it seems that Banks allowed her desire to become Champion get the better of her back in February and attacked Bayley inside the Elimination Chamber.
The heart of the matter
Banks and Bayley have been teasing a feud over the past few weeks and it was even rumored that the duo would collide on The Grandest Stage Of Them All in the first ever women's match that lacked a stipulation at WrestleMania. It seems that isn't meant to be since both women have now confirmed their places in the WrestleMania Women's Battle Royal.
Things definitely reached boiling point this week when it seems that an exchange of words wasn't enough and the former four-time Women's Champion then attacked The Hugger from behind and it led to a brawl between the two former friends. With just 13 days to go until WrestleMania, it seems that this has become a volatile situation.
These two women have collided in some of the best women's matches in recent memory and it seems that once again they will collide inside the Women's Battle Royal next weekend at WrestleMania, which will definitely give the match a huge boost.
There have been rumors for the past few weeks that stated that Bayley would be the one turning heel, but Banks was the one who initiated the attack and she was the one who attacked her friend at Elimination Chamber. Could the former Champion be the one who could be reverting to her heel character from her NXT days? Only time will tell but it will definitely be an interesting 13 days ahead of their showdown.
