When it comes to historical matches for Sasha Banks and the women’s division, not only WWE, but all over the world, one can only think and mention the match between her and Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, a match that has been called the breakthrough for women in the ring.
At that time Sasha had been promoted to the main roster alongside Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, with Bayley, the other member of the Four Horsewomen, left behind, which however prompted the management to give her an award for her excellent work: the female title of NXT, right during this event.
Interviewed on the Kurt Angle Show podcast microphones, The Boss told us how he experienced that match firsthand: “I can remember my whole day, from waking up to the moment I went to bed. I remember absolutely everything, and I can’t remember anything else.
I wanted to leave a legacy. I wanted to leave a stamp that I’m the greatest. I was leaving NXT. I was giving Bayley the NXT Women’s Championship, and I was going to the main roster, finally. It was like a goodbye.”
Sasha Banks is a WWE legend
Sasha Banks appeared on The Kurt Angle Show this week, and the former women’s champion was asked whether there was any real heat between the WWE and MMA Four Horsewomen stables.
“I can only speak for myself; there might be a little tension. I don’t know real heat. I was pissed off that Ronda Rousey could come in, get more money than me, bigger locker room than me, and bring all these people backstage and get more time than me.
I’m like, ‘Excuse me! Who are you, and what do you do?’ Besides respecting everything that she has done in the UFC and the fight world, when it comes to the squared circle, that’s my home. That’s why I’m the legit boss, not Ronda Rousey.”
In addition, she added that in her opinion the match with Bayley is one of the greatest female matches ever: “It was the first time we had an NXT Takeover outside of Full Sail, which only holds maybe 800 people. We sold out at the Barclays Center.
For us, we were competing with RAW, Smackdown and Summerslam. We wanted to be at the top of the weekend. We wanted the match of the night, and I wanted the greatest female match of all time, and I feel that match really was.”
It goes without saying that the two have always given us spectacular matches together and that there is no doubt that TakeOver: Brooklyn is one of the most beautiful matches in the history of female wrestling, which has certainly left its mark, just like wanted Sasha and we’re sure both of them are really proud of what they have done in that ring.
