Bayley had her supposed No. 1 contendership to Charlotte Flair’s Raw Women’s Title snatched away from her by the stroke of a lawyer’s pen, but The Huggable One is back in the race, having overcome a terrifying obstacle — Nia Jax — to punch her ticket to the Royal Rumble and a dance with The Queen.
She did so despite the vocal skepticism of Stephanie McMahon, who openly questioned whether Bayley was championship material. Suffice it to say, Stephanie may just have her answer. With Charlotte watching from commentary, Bayley entered the bout with Jax at a tremendous physical disadvantage but everything in the world to prove. She also had an unlikely ace in the hole: Sasha Banks, who made her appearance right as Nia prepared to administer a top-rope leg drop. Bayley took advantage of the distraction to administer a titanic Bayley-to-Belly off the top rope. Next up: a rumble with royalty.
