4 Ups And 7 Downs From Last Night's WWE Raw (March 12)
7. Is Bayley/Banks On Ice?
In recent weeks, it looked more and more like Sasha Banks and Bayley were headed for a major feud that could culminate at WrestleMania.
Banks attacked Bayley twice during “every woman for herself” eponymous matches at the Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber, leading to Bayley getting a modicum of revenge last month in a six-woman tag match, short-arming Sasha. But then last week, Banks bailed out Bayley, and this week, the Huggable One seconded Sasha for her match against Sonya Deville.
However, Bayley left before Absolution delivered a beatdown on Banks, and she didn’t return to help. But now with the women’s battle royal on for WrestleMania, does that mean that they’ll just be absorbed into that match? With four women already locked in title matches, that doesn’t leave a lot of wiggle room to pull two women out for another singles match.
It would be a shame to see a rivalry that started heating up just cool off like this and have to simmer for a while.
