This Boston girl has made very good in her transition from WWE’s burgeoning feeder brand NXT as the stand-out of the questionable B.A.D. women’s stable. Beautiful and Dangerous is WWE’s simultaneous attempt to justify their on-air and behind the scenes investment in talents Tamina Snuka and Naomi Uso while co-opting Sasha’s momentum. Yet instead of being lost in their company, Sasha has thrived.
Fans chant her names in matches she isn’t in, giving her the treatment talents like Rob Van Dam and Daniel Bryan received before their respective companies got fully behind them. And she’s only getting better.
It’s hard writing about her greatest moment to date because it may be tomorrow. Sasha has consistently put on show stealing performances in the last six months, but her recent headlining of WWE NXT’s Takeover: Respect special is an easy contender for Match of the Year. This after putting on a separate Match of the Year at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn, which featured all the pageantry of a Wrestlemania Main Event on a 13,000 attendee scale in Brooklyn’s Barclay Center.
Though it should be said the quality of her matches are as much to do with her athleticism, charisma, and sex appeal as the incredible charisma as her opponent in both encounters: Bayley.
