On this week’s episode of Monday Night Raw, Sasha Banks and Bayley teamed up with Ember Moon to take on The Riott Squad. Kurt Angle’s reasoning behind teaming Banks and Bayley again was to give them one final chance to make things work between them.
Things seemed to be ok until the latter stages of the match when Banks was pinned. Just seconds later, Bayley attacked Banks with punches and then shoved her into the corner of the ring. It was a vicious beatdown that came across as a heel turn. Bayley showed a bit of remorse for a second but then continued the attack as Michael Cole noted that Bayley was always the cool and calm on that tried to make peace.
Bayley continued her attack by ramming Banks repeatedly into the steel steps at ringside. She followed up with a verbal beatdown.
You never know for sure with WWE but that appeared to be the final break-up between former best friends and it kind of came off like a heel turn. Dave Meltzer first reported a couple of months ago that the original plan was for Bayley to turn on Banks.
We’ll see how this plays out in the coming weeks but this might be the spark that Bayley needed because she has been cold for many months.
