Today in History: Sasha Banks vs. Bayley in an Iron Man main event match

On this day in history:

October 7th, 2015 | After their blockbuster match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, Sasha Banks and Bayley would meet again at NXT TakeOver: Respect. This time, the Superstars would be battling for 30 minutes in the main event in the first ever women’s Iron Man match. Move reversals, dirty tricks and battles on the outside of the ring brought the Superstars to a 2-2 tie with seconds to spare in the match. With Sasha having locked in the Bank Statement a minute away from the end, Bayley’s fate appeared to be sealed. However, against all odds, she managed to fight out of the seemingly unbreakable hold, capturing Sasha in a vicious armbar and applying pressure to Sasha’s injured hand. It was too much for the Boss to bear, and as the clocked ticked down to zero, she was forced to tap, awarding Bayley the decisive fall in the nick of time to retain the NXT Women’s title.
