The match that started a revolution. WWE has posted a new video to its YouTube channel in which the show the full match between Sasha Banks vs. Bayley for the NXT Women’s Championship from NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 2015.
You can see the match in its entirety below:
The Divas Revolution took center stage at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn with the NXT Women’s Championship Match. Stephanie McMahon set the scene by reminding the sold-out Barclays Center that the revolution began in NXT. Following that, both Bayley and the NXT Women’s Champion entered in style with Bayley paying tribute to Dusty Rhodes by adorning herself in polka dots and Banks riding into the Barclays Center in a Cadillac Escalade with a full security detail.
In a match that had the hot Brooklyn crowd on their feet from its onset, Bayley and Banks left everything in the ring in their quest for NXT Women’s gold. Both women took an incredible amount of risks throughout the course of the match, however, it was finally Bayley who was able to capitalize on a breathtaking reverse hurricanrana from the top turnbuckle which led her into hitting the second, and final, Bayley-to-Belly of the match, allowing NXT’s most popular Diva to finally capture the Women’s Championship.
After the match, Charlotte and Becky Lynch came to the ring to congratulate Bayley on her much-deserved win. After a few moments, Banks returned to the ring and in a scene very reminiscent of the Madison Square Garden “Curtain Call” from the infamous Kliq, the four front women of the Divas Revolution each held up the four fingers of the Four Horsewomen and gazed upon the crowd’s adoration. They would all go back to being adversaries tomorrow and beyond, but for one night they basked in the magnitude of what they had all created.
This match is still as amazing today as it was back in 2015 and will go down as one of the most important moments in the history of professional wrestling. This match solidified the beginning of the Women’s Revolution and has transformed Women’s Wrestling into what it is today.
