I can't look at her without thinking she looks like a younger version of Louisa Bradshaw White who plays Tina Carter in Eastenders........

Her cheesy too babyface female Cena style gimmick is too annoying and won't take her far.

She's alright in the ring but eventually she's going to need a more serious gimmick (doesn't have to mean a turn) to take her to the next level.

It works for her. She's a Cena Style babyface and it works for her. She is super over, she's still big with both men and children and women. She has requested that she work herself up slowly from the bottom to get fans organically rather than be thrust into the main event scene and again, it's all working for her brilliantly.

I look forward to Bayley vs Charlotte at mania, and Bayley taking the WWE Women's Championship at the show.

But first she has to go through Nia Jax (again, this time on the main roster).

And speaking of Nia Jax, she almost looks like she could turn babyface herself after that match with Bayley. She went over clean, and looked pretty damned good, and exited like a monster.

This could be a very interesting new feud. I'm also glad to see Dana Brooke off Raw for the moment too.

Her ring work is average. Her finisher is terrible, nothing more than a basic wrestling move that should never beat anyone.

The crowd reaction to her on Raw spoiled a segment and looked to piss her off too as the crowd were more bothered about trying to hijack the show rather than listen to what she had to say.

It's no wonder E (probably Kevin Dunn) edited down the crowd reaction for when it aired because we didn't need five minutes of loud out of tune singing of a cheesy one hit wonder song.

You're just racist against the Scots, Adders. :p

That was awesome. Reminded me of when all the former WWE champions gathered in the ring a few years ago and the crowd went nuts for Daniel Bryan and wouldn't shut up. A few months later he was WWE Champion at WrestleMania.

Apparently Bayley completely bombed her Raw Talk interview though and fans are using terms like "career suicide" to describe it.

Congrats to Bayley, IMO the best mat technician of the horsewomen. Great match, tbh it really didn't need the screwy finish with Dana Brooke and Sasha. They put on a clinic and once again were the legit main event, lots of good stuff on this episode but none of it as good as this match.

Really happy to see her become women's champion. Unfortunately, she will probably lose at fast lane, but that's OK, I still think Charlotte is going to lose the title at mania to Bayley.

Agree about the match Rico. I'd say she's on a par with Charlotte overall though. I'd hate to see them hot-shot the title again but it's kind of expected given Charlotte always finds a way to win at the PPVs.

I think Charlotte has the aura of a champion. She just presents herself like she is Ric Flair, like she owns the ring and everyone else is below her. It's a natural talent of hers she has had since she debuted on NXT. It was in fact the very first attribute I noticed of hers as a wrestler. She just looks like she owns the ring. To quote Enzo, you can't teach that, and it can't be undervalued.

Charlotte is VERY good in the ring, easily one of the top women WWE has ever had, yet despite that I would say she is the worst in the ring of all the 4 Horsewomen. Becky is better than Charlotte in the ring, and so is Sasha, and for my money Bayley is the best of them all.

It was Bayley that really got me interested in women's wrestling in NXT when she, as a green jobber, took on Diva's Champion AJ Lee and really had a great match that was just about as good as Emma vs Paige for the first ever NXT Women's Championship. I expected the championship match to be high quality. I had no expectations of main roster champion vs no gimmick jobber, and when that surprised the hell out of me, I started looking at the women in NXT much more closely, and week after week I found I liked the women's matches in NXT better than not only the women's matches on the main roster, but also the men's matches in NXT and even a vast majority of the men's matches on the main roster too. At that point in time the notion was unfathomable. But it was Bayley that proved it was possible to me.

Overall, yah, I am really not a big fan of Bayley's gimmick, her promo isn't all that hot, especially when she is put on the spot, but in the ring? She is top quality all the way, and her natural personality is just so easily likable that her gimmick works despite itself.

Sasha IMO has the best gimmick of the four. Her character is top notch, surprisingly even as a babyface, but IMO better as a heel. Bayley could never be a heel, it would be horrible. Not that she would necessarily make a horrible heel, but I don't think the fans would tolerate her heel-turn. Her biggest strength is that everyone likes her because she's so nice, and that's not something ANYONE in pro-wrestling can say for themselves except for Sami Zayn and Daniel Bryan.

This is how I look at it

Promo:
1. Becky
2. Sasha
3. Charlotte
4. Bayley

Gimmick:
1. Sasha
2. Charlotte
3. Bayley
4. Becky

Technical:
1. Bayley
2. Becky
3. Sasha
4. Charlotte

Psychology:
1. Charlotte
2. Bayley
3. Sasha
4. Becky

Overall:
1. Charlotte
2. Sasha
3. Bayley
4. Becky

Don't think we needed Bayley to make it back to back nights of babyface new women champions.

I just can't take to her. I don't like smiley babyface kid like characters.

If they must put the title on her I thought Wrestlemania for her first run would be the most obvious place.

Better her than someone who could be fairly kickass otherwise. She's a perfect fit for the gimmick. If the gimmick has to exist she does it justice in a way very few others could.

I think that's why it wasn't done at WrestleMania. I'm sure she'll lose at Fastlane, get the rematch at Mania and then win, thus finally breaking Charlotte's streak.

Right i'll go more in depth as to why I don't see the fuss about her.........

1) Looks are average. Not everything granted but image is still very important. There is a reason ugly people don't tend to make the most money.

2) Shit colourful ring gear.

3) Annoying inflatables on the rampway.

4) A terrible finisher that should be nothing more than a defensive move to get yourself out of trouble at the very start of building upto a win.

5) Shocking mic skills. She looks totally flustered and not at all natural.
