Bayley comment about Becky Lynch winning the NXT Championship
Last night, Becky Lynch achieved her ten-year-long dream of becoming the NXT Women’s Champion on WWE NXT. Her friend and former factionmate Bayley reacted to The Man’s win. It was clear that Becky would come back to NXT and challenge Tiffany Stratton for her title.
Tiffany had been taking shots at Lynch for weeks. As a result, Mrs. Big Time resolved their issues by having a one-on-one match for Tiffy’s title.
This was a huge match for Tiffany Stratton as she gave it her all and fought hard. It looked like Buff Barbie did her research and knew how to take on The Man. She even dodged the ‘Dis Arm Her’, but unfortunately couldn’t avoid the Man Handle Slam. They battled it out for over ten minutes, but in the end, The Man came out on top with that slam.
After the match, Bayley went on X to react to Lynch’s win. She jokingly teased her friend for taking so long to win the NXT Women’s Championship. “Took @BeckyLynchWWE long enough #WWENXT,” Bayley tweeted. (Via-X)
