For all its worth, we can all say it's about time. Bayley has been put in a situation that is very difficult for wrestlers to be in.
She has been a face for so long that it has run stale. Bayley became boring. She needed so badly to do something different and she finally did it.
After Sasha interfered with Becky Lynch and Bayley's tag-team match, taking out Becky with a backstabber and striking her with chair shots, Bayley grabbed the chair from Sasha as if she was trying to protect Lynch. But there a pause as Bayley stood there with the char in hand. The audience could sense something big was coming. Bayley looked at Sasha and then she looked at Becky. The audience began to stir. What followed was Bayley smiling as she attacked Becky with the chair as Sasha laid back in the corner smiling.
Bayley's heel turn was absolutely epic. I would have to say this is one of my favorite moments in this history of the women's division. WWE got something right for a change. I don't know if it was Vince or Heyman but I do know that it was done perfectly as Bayley and Sasha laughed while Becky laid there, helpless and beaten as RAW went off the air.
So Becky Lynch went to twitter and made fun of Sasha Banks for dropping a bad promo on RAW. However, if you actually break down her promo, Sasha gave us confirmation that she cried on the floor, didn't care about the Women's tag-team championships and best of all she admitted to taking her ball and going home.
All week, I have heard wrestling podcasts trashing Sasha Banks for her promo, calling it lame. What these people seem to not understand is Sasha Banks is a HEEL! This was a heel promo!!!!
I don't understand why people don't get it, the promo was lame because it was supposed to be. Sasha is not trying to make you feel good about her return. She is not pandering to you idiots on social media. Sasha Banks told the truth, that's it, that's all.
We all know that the reason Vince McMahon is switching NXT over to USA is to combat AEW in when it goes to TNT in the fall. However, another reason for the switch to USA is Smack Down moving to FOX on Friday nights. NXT moving to USA is a way to keep WWE programing on the USA network and it is at best an attempt to replace Smack Down and to also keep USA happy.
The only concern I have is that NXT may become less of a Triple H product and more of a Vince McMahon product which cheapen NXT and make it just like the main roster which has its own issues.
To make matters worse, NXT will be going head to head against AEW which id on fire right now. If NXT does not pull in good ratings McMahon could decide to get involved and start to pull out whatever crazy antics he thinks will be necessary to boost ratings and to take away from AEW's audience.
The big risk has pretty much no reward. WWE may get embarrassed in this situation. I can see the NXT ratings be so low that NXT is forced to move back to the WWE network which will make WWE look weak and pathetic in the eyes of today's smart wrestling fans.
Sasha Banks has voiced her frustrations with WWE every since she and Bayley dropped the Women's Tag Team Championship belts. She has all but told people she is leaving WWE. Sasha Banks has even retweeted certain tweets from AEW, which is WWE's biggest rival since WCW. This has lead people to believe Sasha Banks is just riding out her time in WWE and waiting for contract to end so she can leave WWE go to another wrestling company such as AEW.
There is a rumor online that Sasha Banks is working WWE fans with by crapping on the company. Some people believe Sasha Banks claims of frustration with WWE is nothing more than a work/shoot. There is even a rumor that Vince Mcmahon is greenlighting all of this and Vince thinks that Sasha Banks working the fans is hilarious.
