Bayley, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks In-Ring Segment

Bayley doesn’t get it. This is confusing. Everybody has something to say about what went down last night. They didn’t see it coming. What didn’t you see coming? Her friendship with Sasha Banks?

Bayley is trying to show you what type of champion she is. She’s trying to pick everyone up. Think about the kids. Ever since Bayley started doing all of this, she was a fan. Now she’s in this ring as the hero and role model. She is trying to show your kids what it’s like to be loyal. That’s why she couldn’t turn her back on Sasha when things got rough.
