Reports suggest a slow burn before Sasha turns heel for Summerslam, so everything we see is apparently already leading to that.

I'd not want it personally as Sasha hasn't been face that long and it's boring going down the 'turn on a friend' route so often.

I would instead build them both strongly and have them put together the Raw team for the traditional Survivor Series match at the end part of the year.

Their feud is bound to be good, and Sasha IS far more suited to being a heel, however, I agree with you Adders. With Banks as more of an edgy face, and have them booked as face vs face, I think you might get a reaction from the fans more like what you got at their Takeover Brooklyn match where the crowd was going nuts for both of them, and we would get a better match quality than we would otherwise get from Banks being heel on the main roster. AND you could tell a better story with Banks being a face.

However, the unfortunate caveat to this is that Bayley and Sasha both would benefit from a story like most if Sasha were the holding champion, not Bayley.

The build up continues with Sasha coming across as a bitchy heel with the way she spoke to her mate.

Sasha could be more over as an heel than ever before when she finally snaps, if she's allowed to do so to male proportions.

If they draw it out for months including having Bayley win the title in the meantime you could build up jealousy before Sasha snaps in the weeks leading to Summerslam and getting a title shot.

Face Bayley vs Heel Sasha worked in NXT, so in theory should work on the main roster...however they need to build Bayley to those dizzy heights again first as for whatever reason it hasn't worked properly on the main roster.

Now when Sasha turns heel she can use the "you're only the champion because I helped you" line.

Can have her say she wasn't going to get anymore title shots from Charlotte so made it her business to get the title onto someone else, so she had an avenue to get it back on herself.

I hope it's drawn out until just before Summerslam, but think creative with their history of showing little patience, might just pull the trigger on this very soon.

I think it might happen following WrestleMania. I think Bayley will walk out of Mania as champion, and that'll be the end of it for Bayley and Charlotte, and from there Sasha Banks and Bayley will be the title storyline.

Great heel work my Stephanie trying to build tension between them mentioning how Sasha always fights the battles of Bayley.

Even better was her saying she thinks Sasha helped her win the title because she things Bayley is easier to beat than Sasha.

The only odd part was Bayley who's booked as fair, cheery, stick to the rules kind of girl didn't want to give up the title she won under shady circumstances.

Because it wasn't shady. It wasn't clean, but it wasn't shady either.

Dana Brooke screwed with Bayley first, THEN Sasha came and screwed with Charlotte. Tit for tat.

She won the title because of shady stuff going on around her. It wasn't a fitting way for her whiter than white TV persona.

They were rumours Sasha was going to turn on Bayley monday night, but thankfully that didn't happen.

It shouldn't be happening for months yet, but too many wrestling fans have too little patience and want angles to be rushed.

Instigated on whose behalf? Not Bayley's! It was Charlotte's camp that started it. Sorry, but if you're gonna start shit with someone you'd better expect the other to try and finish it, and you have no room to complain when it backfires on you.

No problem at all with Bayley not handing over the title.

Quote Bayley comes out and does a brief interview with Charly Caruso, but before she can really get started Absolution interrupts. Paige, Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville come out, and Paige cuts a promo on Bayley calling her a stupid little kid.

- Bayley vs. Mandy Rose: Mandy and Bayley start off trading holds until Mandy hits a dropkick in the corner to take over. Mandy works over Bayley's arm, then slams her into the corner. Bayley starts fighting back and hits a running elbow shot. Rose rolls outside for a breather with Absolution. Back in the ring, Rose tees off on Bayley with strikes. Bayley misses a shot and Rose answers with a running knee for a two count. Mandy keeps control and works over Bayley on the mat. Bayley counters a slingshot and drops Rose over the middle rope. Bayley fires up with some clotheslines and strikes now, then slams Mandy into the corner over and over. Bayley hits a suplex, then climbs to the middle rope but Sonya distracts her. Bayley still hits a flying elbow on Rose. Sonya gets back on the apron, and the distraction leads to Rose rolling up Bayley for a two count. Bayley comes back with a rollup pin of her own for the three count.

Winner: Bayley

- Rose and Deville immediately start beating down Bayley after the bell. Sasha banks runs down to make the save, and Absolution retreats. Sasha goes to hug Bayley, but Bayley declines and walks away.

Love this change of persona for Bayley, with her being booked as a subtle heel.
 
When Sasha turned on her at Royal Rumble and Elimination Chamber it was every woman for herself. So when Bayley jumped off the ring apron last week that was heelish as on that occasion they were on the same team.
 
Also last night a lack of thanks from being saved from a big beatdown.

And then have Carmella cash in 

i like Sasha but i think with her new attitude thing she has going at the minute - its a little too soon to put the title on her

Bayley for me is not champion material in any shape or form

Jax is probably the only other credible potential champion on Raw

It wouldnt be a bad thing to keep it on Alexa until they established some other top contenders

Nah, neither Bayley or Sasha need the belt at the moment. As long as they get a singles match at Mania I think all is well in their world. 

WWE need to figure out what to do with Bayley, and how best to book her, because what she had going was absolutely fantastic in NXT, and the internet was buzzing about her all the time. Now no one gives a shit because the main roster booking dropped the ball with her and made her look terribly lame.

It seems this feud is being put in place as an attempt to rectify that shortcoming, and Sasha will want to do right by Bayley. Or perhaps I should say Mercedes will want to do right by Pamela? This is behind the scenes personal for the two of them, both wanting to have more to do at WrestleMania, and knowing that they have an opportunity to show up the rest of the roster because they'll (likely) have a singles match, very possibly the only non-title women's singles match on the show. They have no decision in who goes over, but even if Sasha is booked to go over, you know Mercedes will want Pamela to come out looking as good as she possibly can so that they can keep working together and continue a program in a high profile role that will hopefully lead to Bayley finally establishing herself as a top performer on the main roster.

I agree Birthday Boy. Keep them away from the Moolah Mashup, which is for those going nowhere.
 
Quote Sasha Banks vs. Sonya Deville: Bayley and Absolution are all at ringside. The bell sounds and the opening minutes are evenly matched until Sasha hits a series of dropkicks. She hits Sonya again, then throws her out of the ring. Back in the ring, Sonya hits a series of strikes and mounts a comeback. Deville works on keeping The Boss grounded on the mat now. The other Absolution members look to interfere, but Bayley chases them off. Sasha fires up and hits the backstabber, then the Banks Statement for the win after a short match.

Winner: Sasha Banks

- After the bell, Absolution beats down Sasha. Bayley appears to have left the ringside arena and she didn't return to help during the post-match beat-down.

More great heelish work by Bayley to look reluctant at having Sasha's back and then not coming back out to help her once the match was over.
 
I hope the big turn happens soon and she turns up at Wrestlemania with a total makeover. New hair colour, new hairstyle, new ring music and new dress sense.

Actually you bring up an interesting discussion point. At this point I think we all know a full blown heel turn is in the works for either Sasha or Bayley. So first of all, DO you turn Bayley heel, or Sasha? And also, when do you do it?

I kind of hate to see Bayley turn heel, as I'd really like to see her succeed as a babyface, but I'm not sure it'll ever work unless she gets the Roman Reigns/John Cena treatment, and that doesn't look like it's going to happen so turning her heel might be the way to go. 

However, Sasha is such a fantastically good heel, that she could very likely get Bayley over as a babyface and she is FAR more interesting herself as a heel than a babyface. 

Honestly, I could see a good argument for either person turning heel, but then the question still remains, when? Do you do as Adders suggests, and turn Bayley heel before mania and have her debut a new character at the PPV? Do you patch things up between them and then have Bayley sucker punch Sasha at the show and have her go ape shit all over her ass? Do you have them patch things up on the build to mania, and then Sasha sucker punches Bayley and tell her she's a dope for trusting her and then have a fire lit under Bayley's ass to rise to the occasion as Sasha revisits her Takeover Brooklyn (the first one) ways of being over the top mob boss bitchy?

What do you do that benefits them both the most and keeps the fans entertained?

I didn't care for Sasha as a heel. In real life she's a computer game nerd/geek, who gets a lot of love in interviews off others. She appears really well liked and i'm surprised these sides of her haven't been shown in her character.

Bayley as heel you could shorten her hair, dye it blonde and have her come out with sunglasses hanging from her head, in jeans and a black leather jacket (just an example).

Bayley needs the Wrestlemania win the most and I don't think Sasha would have an issue putting over her bestie.

Bayley might not have hit the heights but she's far harder to dislike than Sasha. Bayley has appeared in plenty of videos for UpUpDownDown and the like and even personally, Sasha has that overbearing, slightly obnoxious personality that comes with a life of smack talk (which is my favourite thing about her) meanwhile Bayley is the understated underdog. That's who she is. 

I definitely see Sasha going heel because I think Raw is lacking in top drawer heels. Beyond Bliss there isn't really anyone. With Jax en route to being a major face you need bad guys and Bayley isn't big enough or realistic enough to fill those shoes.

Bayley just needs someone rooting for her. Someone on WWE's production crew, and especially through commentary that's willing to say, look at everything Bayley has been through, and she just keeps persevering, she deserves the support of the people.

That's what failed Sami Zayn, too. Zayn is surprisingly ok as a heel, but let's be honest, he is one of the best whitemeat, good-guy babyfaces you could possibly come by. But all we ever had was Vince in the commentary's ear saying look at how annoying he is! And that's why Zayn failed, Vince thought Zayn was annoying, so everyone crapped on him and so his babyface run failed.

Vince doesn't like the soft-spoken girl next door underdog type so the WWE doesn't like it either and so Bayley will fail just because of that. Yet clearly if we see production in support of, like in NXT Bayley soars to unbelievable heights.

Just support Bayley and she WILL succeed. Don't put her in terrible stories like "this is your life" and a ANYTHING on a pole match. She was one of the very first women who grabbed my eye years ago before the women's revolution ever started because she was a fantastic wrestler, and she could easily be a female John Cena, you could not get any better built for it personality wise. Just fucking GO WITH IT! Shit it's not rocket science. Just continue doing what you did in NXT and she'll become one of your top merch sellers and bigger draws in the entire company.

Sasha is a heel, let her be a heel. Come on she looked like she got off on making kids cry during her iron man match. Don't trying reinvent the wheel, just go with what works.

Shes too babyface heavy though for most fans other than kids to get behind. Shes like the Cena of the womens division.

Sami Zayn was that sort of character (although not as ful on) until he went with Owens so turning Bayley heel wouldnt really be the worst thing in the world.

Theres lots of opportunities now for someone else to take the mantle now that Asuka has moved to Smackdown and with Becky rumoured to move to Raw theres alot of healthy competition and theres no reason why there cant be a few women at the top of the card - as far as i recall we havent seen THAT many multi women title matches between established top of the card stars?

That is the point with Bayley though. They need to push her as if she were John Cena and she could actually get over because she was already proven she can. They should be treating her exactly as if she were John Cena, at least in front of the camera, but also with make-a-wish and other things. Highlight the fact that kids like her, talk about what a great role model she is, put yet on a winning streak and rave about how she rises to the occasion and can overcome all odds.

She is absolutely fantastic at playing that role in a way I have never seen either Reigns or Cena pull off. And because she is this sweet, innocent looking girl, the gender roles play into it as well in the same way women go nuts for John Cena or Reigns, men end up liking her because she has that girl next door quality to her.

But WWEs main roster production team haven't done that and they are failing her, bad. It is "best for business" that they put her in a position to succeed, and they just haven't done that for her.

Which is why a total makeover and heel turn would be great. She needs a career boost.
 
Quote Sonya Deville replaced Bayley in a mixed tag team match against John Cena and Nikki Bella. While Bayley is expected to be a heel going into her program against Sasha Banks, it is happening much slower than originally expected and so they had to pull her from the match as it wouldn't have made any sense.
 
Don't know why she was put in that situation in the first place. She's still a babyface and by putting her with an heel against a popular babyface couple, they have given away what's likely to happen.
 
When we see Bayley snap and lay the chav with the cheap jewelery out it's going to be amazing.

They would have a lot of work to do in order to make Bayley a believable heel - far more work than they would with any other superstar on the roster

After Raw it seems to me that Sasha will probably be the heel of this feud Bayley is simply playing the person who is fed up with being turned on and finally started dishing some back, Sasha's been very heelish most of the time from the royal rumble up till now.

Quote Bayley is backstage in the locker room when Sasha Banks walks in. Bayley says she's entering the women's battle royal at WrestleMania, and there's nothing else to talk about - Sasha knows what she did. They start arguing, which leads to fighting. Sasha throws Bayley into the lockers, then onto a table. Bayley fights back and they fight until referees and trainers pull them apart.
 
I don't rate either of them that highly, but I did enjoy the brawl with Bayley coming off as more heelish with the words being exchanged.
 
Sasha would make a good enhancement talent for those with bigger battles ahead, so I hope Bayley wins when they face eachother.
 
It's not been announced yet, but it's been made too obvious it's going to be, or they would have entered themselves in the women's battle royal by now.

This would be a good match for the show after mania I think; long term booking is nothing to sniff at really. Also means someone else can win the battle royal.

I would prefer to see this as a singles match, but those battle royals are just going to be a time sink, and there's too many matches on the card already.

-------------


Posted By: admin
Date Posted: 28/March/2018 at 22:11
Quote The reason that Sasha Banks vs. Bayley was not included as a singles match according to a source in WWE is simply due to time constraints and the Women's battle royal needing some star power. With 14 matches already scheduled and the announcement of the inaugural women's battle royal, WWE felt the Sasha/Bayley story could be furthered with them being two of the stronger talent who will appear in the battle royal, especially with Alexa Bliss, Nia Jax, Asuka, Charlotte and Ronda Rousey booked in other matches.
 
That makes sense. Instead of it being lost on a stacked card, save it for another event where it can stand out more and have more chance to shine.
 
The storyline gives the women's battle royal a bit more meaning and I suspect Sasha will eliminate Bayley, who I see as the most likely for the singles win.
 
I don't see either of them winning the match, as they don't need it to help their story.

How would the elimination count if she's already been eliminated? Sasha from the outside could distract Bayley for someone to take her from the match. But you couldn't have it count if Sasha got back in the ring to chuck Bayley over the top rope.
 
Quote Bayley is in the back getting ready to come down to the ring.

- Sonya Deville vs. Bayley: The rest of Absolution is at ringside for this one. Sonya hits a leg kick and Bayley backs off. Bayley comes back with a headlock takedown and then a running cross body. Sonya comes back with strikes, but Bayley shuts her down with a snake eyes in the corner and an elbow to the face. Bayley hits a cross body off the middle rope for a two count. Bayley and Sonya brawl on the mat until Sonya takes control with a series of knee strikes. Bayley fires up with elbows to the face then stomps a mud hole in her in the corner. Bayley goes up top and hits a flying cross body, then a running knee to the face. Sonya rolls outside and Bayley follows. They fight back up onto the apron where Bayley hits a shot to the face, but then Bayley gets distracted by Mandy on the apron. Sonya grabs Bayley from behind, but Bayley reverses and rolls up Sonya in a pin for the three count.

Winner: Bayley

- After the match, Mandy hits the ring and starts beating down Bayley with Sonya. Sasha Banks comes out for the save and they clear the ring. Sasha and Bayley start arguing and get in each other's faces. Bayley and Sasha start throwing punches to the face now and Bayley tackles her. Mandy and Sonya hit the ring again and beat down both Bayley and Sasha. Mandy and Sonya leave Sasha and Bayley laying, then head backstage with Paige.

 
Heelish E booking to not give us a full on brawl between them, which would have been better than them being attacked by Abdulloution Sleepy
 
E like dragging out stuff lately (Taker/Cena confirmation, Brauns partner etc), so this one on one match probably won't happen until Summerslam.

You need to watch WrestleMania 2, Adders. Refrigerator Perry was eliminated by Big John Studd in the battle royale and then offered to shake Studd's hand, pulling Studd out by the arm when he reached and eliminated him. He didn't even have to get back in the ring to eliminate him even though he was eliminated himself, and it counted.  

But yes, no doubt Sasha and Bayley will scrap in this year's battle royal.

It's like you don't know the rules to a battle royal. All one has to do is go over the top rope and have their feet hit the floor. Randy Savage, in 92 jumped over the top rope to the floor and eliminated himself from the Royal Rumble while chasing off Jake the Snake.

There have been at least a few times people have been eliminated by people who were already eliminated.

I know fully thanks. Randy Savage eliminated himself without anyone else touching him. That's different.
 
If you get thrown out by someone already eliminated, it shouldn't count and you should be allowed back in.
 
It makes a mockery of the concept if no punishment happens if someone does that.

It's Adders. He's oblivious to so much despite being around a while and there's a lot he doesn't comprehend. 

And aye, if we're talking Royal Rumbles there's even more examples. Andre the Giant eliminated himself in 1989 because he was afraid of the snake Damien. Plus of course there's the classic 1997 example where Stone Cold Steve Austin was eliminated by Bret Hart but the refs didn't see it as they were trying to separate Terry Funk and Mankind, and then Austin climbed back in the ring and thew out 4 people, including Bret, to win. 

It would be easy to work out something similar this year with Sasha and Bayley.

Not really because the object is to prevent your feet from touching the arena floor. If you fail to prevent your feet from touching the arena floor, you are out, regardless of how it happened. 

Theoretically a piece of the ceiling could fall off and hit a battle royal participant; and they could lose their balance, fall out the ring, and be eliminated.

I'm in agreement with Rico and Kon regarding the battle royal rules - infact im sure it has happened on numerous times before - plus its a no dq format in most if not all battle royals.

The womans battle royal is going to come down to either Sasha and Bailey or Ruby Riott and one of the other two, with like has been mentioned already, Sasha eliminating Bailey or visa-versa

Quote Sasha Banks vs. Bayley: The opening bell sounds and both women come out strong. Bayley goes for a springboard off the middle rope, but slips, and Sasha takes advantage and beats on Bayley. Bayley finally comes back and hits an elbow to the face, then a spinning reverse suplex off the middle rope for a two count. They fight to the apron and Sasha hits several knees to the face, then throws Bayley back in the ring and hits a flying knee off the top for a two count. They start slapping each other in the face then exchanging punches. Sasha gets the upper hand and hits a running knee to the face, then she locks in the Banks Statement. The Riott Squash runs in and starts beating down Sasha, and the ref calls the bell.

Winner: Bayley via DQ

- After the match, The Riott Squad beats down both Sasha and Bayley.

I expected us to not get a clean finish, as it's been built up for far too long, to have a decisive winner in a throwaway Raw match.
 
The only way this should come to an end is with a clean finish on PPV to whoever wins.
 
There was enough in their short exchanges to give us a taster of better things to come, when they meet again.

Yes, this has been going on for far to long. I would have like to seen one of them moved to Smackdown. Sasha’s status as a “boss” keeps sliding down and down the pole while Bayley never really to me was a main playing in the women’s division. She is a great draw for the kids but really that’s about it. They have put the strap on Sasha just to turn around and quickly take it off. I don’t know but to me they both need to be away from each other. It’s very stale. This isn’t the besties like Lita and Trish.

After seeing all this this week it just seemed like WWE was leading to a literal kiss and make up session like it's 2003. They really need to escalate the heat between the two and not is some sexual tension way like this week, OR they need a loser leaves Raw for Smackdown match. IMO that would be best. Sasha on Smackdown would be great for Sasha vs Becky, & more of Sasha vs Asuka & Sasha vs Charlotte.

Yes , I agree with a Smackdown move for Sasha but they’ve done shook up so to speak so I guess we got what we got.

Quote We see a video package looking at the issues between Bayley and Sasha Banks, and Kurt Angle ordering Bayley to go counseling. Michael Cole introduces footage of their first counseling session, and we go to a pre-taped segment in a doctor's office setting. Bayley is sitting in the waiting room when Sasha walks in and immediately starts arguing with Bayley. The doctor, Dr. Shelby, walks in and asks them to follow him into his office - which he likes to call the friend zone. The counselor starts advising Bayley and Sasha about friendship.
 
We go back to Sasha and Bayley's counseling session, where the doctor is getting frustrated. Sasha and Bayley mock each other, and then they start arguing. The doctor gets mad and yells, and the segment ends with "to be continued..."
 
I think the crowd last week spoilt a Bayley heel turn. When she took out Sasha commentary was very down and disgusted with her. But the crowd popped so loudly what commentary was saying soon changed to seeing her point. It was as if Vince was in their ear piece saying change of direction lads....
 
You can intimidate conga line civilians like Mojo or vandalise rental cars like Braun and nothing happens. You attack another wrestler and you get sent to therapy, E logic....
 
On the plus side we got to see the return of Doctor Shelby Big smile

San Diego (where Raw was last week) is Bayley's home town. Clearly she was meant to get that reaction.

San Diego? As in, where she lives NOW? Because her hometown, the town she grew up in, is Newark California, just south of San Francisco and north of San Jose. She currently resides in Austin Texas.

John Cena however, born and raised in West Newberry Massachusetts, and currently living primarily in Tampa Florida, has his reality show house in San Diego. 

Bayley was not a 'hometown' girl in San Diego. Her hometown is 450 miles away.

I don't think that will have made a difference. Sasha is easy to dislike and Nutjob Bayley is a character fans will get behind.
 
Quote Bayley vs. Sasha Banks doesn't appear to be scheduled for WWE Extreme Rules this Sunday as their match hasn't been announced and there's already 10 matches on the actual PPV and one match announced for the Kickoff show. As we reported not too long ago, WWE was considering putting this match off until SummerSlam and the fact that the two are supposed to report back to Kurt Angle from their counseling session next week on Raw seems to suggest they won't wrestle until August.
 
The skits between them this week weren't as good. It gave them women a couple of mondays off, so they won't mind too much.
 
I can see it next week Kurt in the ring, Bayley/Sasha getting along, something happens, the women start battering eachother, Kurt gets mad, end of segment.
