Next Sunday at The Royal Rumble, Bayley will challenge Charlotte for the Raw Women’s Championship. This will be Bayley’s first singles attempt at the title since joining the WWE main roster.
I am all for a Bayley title run. She has worked her entire life to get to the WWE and she sure deserves it. But, The Royal Rumble is not the place for her to snag the title. Charlotte has not lost a Pay-Per-View singles match since Clash of Champions 2015, where she won the Divas Championship from Nikki Bella. The self proclaimed “Queen of Pay-Per-View” has set a record breaking win streak. The only time Charlotte lost the Women’s Championship was to Sasha Banks on Raw, never in a pay-per-view setting. It wouldn’t make much sense for Bayley to break Charlotte’s winning streak at The Royal Rumble. There hasn’t been enough build up for the match. It is only the beginning of the rivalry between the former Horsewomen. The proper place for Bayley to become Champion would be WrestleMania. It would be a great pop for Bayley as well as for Charlotte. It would be a shame for Charlotte to lose that streak anywhere else but The Grandest Stage in Pro-Wrestling.
