A Match YEARS in the Making, It Seems

A rivalry predestined to happen ever since school

Sasha Banks and Bayley will make history by being the first women to headline a major WWE show in an ironman match no less at Takeover: Respect. This match has been a long time in the making for sure, but it seems even longer than what has been shown on NXT television. As it turns out, Bayley has expressed her desires in writing to be the Women's Champion as early as high school, and she's had dreams of being where she is right now since she was 12. She shared an English class essay about her dreams on Twitter, complete with the proofreading marks from her teacher:

Not to be outdone, because the Boss never lets anyone get the last word but herself, Banks posted a similar note that she wrote when she was 11:

Banks and Bayley have been embroiled in an intense feud built on rivalry bordering on hatred for nearly two years, but when the match at Takeover: Brooklyn ended, the course edge went away and their friendship came out. Sharing these childhood notes fits right in with the new atmosphere between the two. It's weird but comforting to see the two be friendly with each other, well, at least until Bayley gets to the main roster and Banks stabs her in the back again. But hey, the cycle is neverending, and if Banks and Bayley can become the Kevin Steen/Owens and El Generico/Sami Zayn of the WWE Women's division, then everyone will be richer for the experience.
