Following their epic match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn for the NXT Women’s Championship, Bayley and Sasha Banks were joined by fellow Four Horsewomen members Becky Lynch and Charlotte, with the four embracing in the middle of the ring with 14,000 cheering Brooklyn fans applauding the group.
In a recent interview with journeyofafrontman.com, Bayley — who will defend her newly-won title against Banks in the main event of TakeOver on Oct. 7 in a 30-Minute WWE Iron Man Match! – discussed that special moment.
“It was really cool and I feel like that was a defining moment in our careers, all four of us,” she said. “I feel like it’s something a lot of the fans wanted to see because they’ve seen all four of us grow up together in the past couple years. They know how hard we all worked together and what we’ve done for the division. They’ve all seen us grow separately and go our own ways. They saw Sasha and Charlotte win championships and everything. Storylines aside and everything, I know it meant the world to us because we’ve all seen each other training every day and working for the same goal. We all know how important every championship match is, especially that one. We knew that all four of us together, including the other Divas, all of us worked to get to that match where it was Sasha versus myself. If it wasn’t for Becky and Charlotte and everybody else that works hard in the division, we wouldn’t have been able to be in that spot. To us, it was all four of us together until who knows how long. They’re all doing their thing, they’re all busy on RAW and Smackdown. I’m holding it down in NXT, so who knows the next time we’ll all get to be in a ring together. And it was just respect, regardless of how we feel about each other, problems in the past. I think I finally gained Sasha Banks’s respect and showed her that I’m not just giving out high-fives and stuff, I want to take the division as far as she does. It was a really cool moment, personally and professionally. I think that’s what the fans remember most.”
