Bayley & Sasha reminded the World who elevated the Women’s Evolution 4 years ago

On the Labor Day 2019 edition of WWE Raw, Sasha Banks and a newly turned heel Bayley may have reminded the world who took this Women’s Evolution to new heights long before there was a triple threat women’s main event at WrestleMania 35. The women who lost the women’s tag team championship that night last spring, reminded us how they changed the game 4 years ago in Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center.

Many wrestling fans, including this writer site Becky Lynch as the face of WWE. There is no denying her tremendous run since she “slapped her way to success” over a year ago at Summerslam. Her rivalry with Ronda Rousey that was delayed due to Nia Jax right hand last November, which led to her triumph in the 1st ever Women’s WrestleMania main event is well-deserved.

That being said, lets not forget what got this entire thing started. All due respect and acknowledgement to the aforementioned Becky Lynch, Charlotte, Ronda Rousey, Trish, Lita, Natayla, Paige, and many others who have been priceless in their contribution to WWE’s Women’s Evolution… On August 22nd, 2015, two women put on an 18-minute masterpiece that many people consider to be the best women’s match of the modern era, and possibly of all time. Bayley vs. Sasha Banks for the NXT Women’s championship changed the game. That match took this women’s movement in pro wrestling to a new level, and this writer is more than happy to remind the world of this fact.
