History has been made. There are a lot of different opinions about the WWE’s Saudi Arabian shows and it is easy to understand why a lot of fans are uncomfortable with them. The shows are held in a country that does not have the best human rights record, but things are getting a little better. Some of this is seen in women being allowed to wrestle, which was the case last year and may be again.
Bayley is one of the most dominant wrestlers in all of WWE today and is one of the longest reigning champions the company has. She has taken care of all kinds of challengers and is running out of people to come after her title. Therefore she needs some new challengers for the title and that means something historic could help. That idea was announced this week on SmackDown.
During this week’s SmackDown, Bayley successfully defended the Women’s Title against Carmella. After the match, Naomi came to the ring to save Carmella, which did not sit well with Bayley. As a result, Bayley said that she will not be defending the Women’s Title until Super ShowDown on February 27. Her challenger will be determined next week on SmackDown when Naomi faces Carmella in a #1 contenders match.
Bayley has been a big deal. Check out some of her recent moments:
Opinion: It’s still cool to see something like this actually take place but it’s cool to see that they are going to be allowed to have the women compete again. I know it is the tiniest of steps, but it is better than nothing taking place. Bayley is likely to face Naomi and that should be an enjoyable match once it happens. A title change could even take place and it would be a pretty cool moment should it take place.
Do you like the match? Will Bayley retain the title? Let us know in the comments below.
