On this day in history:
August 22nd, 2015 | For nearly two years, Bayley was seen as NXT’s ultimate underdog, coming short of winning the NXT Women’s Championship whenever the opportunity came about. At NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, Bayley earned yet another opportunity at the title against the champion Sasha Banks. In what was billed the co-main event of the show, both women were taken to their absolute limit. In the end, it was the combination of a reverse top rope Frankensteiner and a Bayley-to-Belly that would allow Bayley to unseat Sasha to become the new champion. The match would go on rank high on many lists, including number one on WWE’s list of “Greatest NXT Match” and number two on WWE’s “Greatest Match of the Year 2015”.
