Move over Charlotte, Bayley has arrived! The former NXT Women’s Champion made her WWE debut on ‘Monday Night Raw’ on August 22, and the crowd went absolutely crazy. Watch!
Bayley didn’t waste any time! The wrestler, 27, officially became part of the main roster for WWE and during Monday Night Raw on Aug. 22, she immediately challenged the new Women’s Champion, Charlotte for her title.
Of course, Charlotte had just taken that from Sasha Banks the night before at SummerSlam, and wasn’t about to just give it up. For now, she denied the challenge and handed over Dana Brook to face Bayley — a match Bayley dominated.
“Its hard to put it into words, but it was crazier than I could have ever imagined, [and] everything that I’ve ever dreamt of since I was 10 years ago,” Bayley told WWE after the match. “This exceeded all of my expectations. I had my mom here, [and] there’s people chanting my name!”
She also added that this day in particular was very special — exactly one year ago, in the same building, she took home her NXT championship. “It really came full circle. I’m trying not to cry right now,” she said.
Needless to say, fans and WWE members were really excited to see her on WWE, and she was immediately trending on Twitter.
