The Highway to Payback
That is each an extended and winding highway stuffed with useless ends and a brief fast journey down the block. On the one hand, we’ve got the years of build-up between Sasha Banks and Bayley in a endless torrent of will they/received’t they power, and on the opposite, we’ve got a championship match that was thrown collectively in per week.
Lengthy story brief. Asuka beat Sasha Banks at SummerSlam (solely simply final weekend!), taking her RAW girls’s championship.
Whereas Banks has a staggering historical past of losses on PPV’s this one may very well be chalked up resulting from her unhealthy luck and Bayley’s interference – or lack thereof. Earlier within the night time, Bayley was in a position to retain her SmackDown girls’s championship as a result of Sasha took a bump from Asuka, however when it got here time for Bayley to return the favor, she didn’t.
To make issues worse, Sasha misplaced her rematch in opposition to Asuka the next Monday night time. 2BeltsBanks is now, solidly, a factor of the previous.
Bayley additionally had a match on RAW in opposition to Shayna Baszler that was interrupted by Nia Jax, resulting in a disqualification. Whereas Jax and Baszler had been combating, Banks and Bayley had been egging them on from the sidelines, which didn’t precisely sit properly with both of them. They concurrently turned their focus from one another to the tag workforce champs and hustled them out of the ring.
Now, Jax and Baszler have each been searching for a chance since coming again to RAW and have had no qualms about combating anybody (even refs) to get seen. This overwhelming need for consideration has led them to butt heads for weeks. Positive, they might proceed to only struggle it out between themselves, however neither of them at present have something worth combating for. Sensing a golden alternative, the duo agreed to place their variations apart and tackle the champions.
You realize what they are saying. The enemy of my enemy is my buddies.
What’s at Stake?
That is, but once more, the deciding second on whether or not or not we’re getting Banks versus Bayley 2.0. I really feel like I’ve written that 1,000 instances, however this time it does really feel like a actuality. They’ve truly put within the time to construct this story as much as the crescendo. Every thing was golden after they each held gold, but when solely considered one of them does…properly, you’ll be able to see the place that’s headed, particularly if the one that not holds the title of champion blames the opposite for his or her loss. What was the phrase Sasha used? Oh yeah, VENGEANCE.
Additionally, I don’t learn about you, however having Baszler and Jax because the grumpy, reluctant powerhouse tag champs sounds actually enjoyable. It’s a basic enemy to pal story, and I’m wildly right here for it.
Will we lastly see Banks activate Bayley, or is that this yet one more false begin? Discover out tonight at Payback 7E/6C on the WWE community and verify again right here at CageSide Seats for all of your updated protection!
