Coming up next, Bayley’s WrestleMania opponent will be revealed.
Bayley’s WrestleMania opponent is determined
Mick Foley is in the ring to start this segment. The crowd is loudly chanting, “Foley.” He welcomes Bayley to the ring. Bayley comes out to a great reception. Still photos are shown of Sasha Banks helping her beat Charlotte Flair last night. Bayley says she wishes she could call herself a champion tonight. Last night, she asked Charlotte Flair to leave Dana Brooke in the locker room, and she did. Then Sasha Banks came down to help her. Bayley says she’s trying to wrap her mind around what happened. She needs to move forward and keep moving to WrestleMania. Growing up, her year didn’t start in January. It always started and ended with WrestleMania. Last year, she stood in the background when Lita introduced the new WWE Women’s Championship. She watched women she’s close with compete for it. She promised herself she would be at the next WrestleMania in the ring. It just doesn’t feel like it should. It doesn’t feel right. Foley says he knows how she’s feeling. At this time of the year, it doesn’t matter how you got there. It only matters where you’re going. She’s going to WrestleMania. The question is now who will her opponent be at WrestleMania.
Sasha Banks’ music hits, and she makes her way to the ring. Banks says that’s a great question. She has the answer. Banks says they know Charlotte very well. Even though Charlotte sent Dana to the locker room, it doesn’t mean she was going to stay there. Let’s talk about WrestleMania. Since they became friends, they always talked about tearing down the house on the grandest stage of them all. Instead of talking about it, how about they make it happen? They can fight at WrestleMania for the RAW Women’s Championship. Foley says that sounds like a good match, but he wants a second opinion from the people right here in Chicago, Illinois. They start a “YES” chant.
Charlotte Flair’s music hits, and she comes down to the ring with Dana Brooke. Flair sarcastically says the plan is crystal clear. Banks knew she wouldn’t get another title opportunity to face her. That was the deal. Whoever lost at Road Block: End of the Line wasn’t going to get a second chance. Banks didn’t think Bayley was good enough to beat her. Banks used her and pretended to be Bayley’s friend. It worked. She’s the victim in this conspiracy. Flair says she was robbed of her title and PPV streak. Flair says Foley doesn’t care as long as his two favorite daughters are going to WrestleMania. Foley says he does care, but she lost her rematch. Flair says she was robbed.
Stephanie McMahon’s music hits, and she makes her way to the ring looking none too pleased. McMahon says Mick Foley is not the boss, and neither is Sasha Banks for that matter. She is. A loud “CM Punk” chant fires up. McMahon says they’re predictable and just like CM Punk: losers. They always cheer for the wrong person, just like Sasha Banks. Banks is the most manipulative person in the locker room. She cozied up to Bayley to get a shot at the Women’s Title. She expects the crowd to be hypocritical, but she demands more from Foley. There is no denying that Bayley wouldn’t be the Women’s Champion had it not been for Banks. The woman who deserves the match is Charlotte Flair. Foley says he thinks she’d agree – but she cuts him off. McMahon makes the match official: Bayley will defend the RAW Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair. Foley says she can’t leave “the boss” out in the cold. McMahon asks who the boss is. Foley says McMahon is his boss, but Banks is THE boss. Foley says Charlotte should face Sasha next week with the winner facing Bayley at WrestleMania. McMahon agrees, but wants to make it even better. If Banks wins, the match at WrestleMania will be a triple threat, which means Bayley doesn’t have to get pinned to lose the title. We’ll find out exactly who Sasha Banks is as she goes one-on-one against Bayley, next.
Charlotte Flair will be on commentary for this next match.
