10 Greatest Carry Jobs In WWE History

10. Bayley Vs Nia Jax

WWE.com

Bayley's first televised appearance in front of a UK audience was possibly her finest display during her one and only run as NXT Women's Champion.

Despite her minute improvement on the main roster, Nia Jax had struggled to get off the ground on the developmental show, especially when expected to fill a huge talent hole left by Charlotte, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks.

Whilst the likes of Asuka and Emma nobly took on the challenge of rebuilding the division, Jax had fallen flat since her ballyhooed debut and follow-up squashes drew little interest.

She'd failed upwards on television though, establishing a level of dominance over enhancement talent utilising her size in a manner that promoted her to Number One Contender by default.

Not least because of the Asuka/Emma match that opened the show, expectations were extremely high for the match, and Bayley ensured the London crowd got the contest befitting her revered title.

Bumping around for every single move Jax delivered, Bayley made Nia look like a killer and could only ever fight out with panicked and desperate strikes and shots before her bigger foe left her laying time after time.

Highlighting how the Bayley-to-Belly was a physical impossibility, the champion instead dragged her challenger down with a guillotine choke from a mounted top rope position, persistently and repeatedly wrapping her up in it until Jax had no choice but to tap. It remains by far the best contest she has ever had between WWE ropes.
