It was a long time coming, but Bayley is now finally on the main roster, and although she could have significantly improved SmackDown Live, she could still be set for a bright future on Monday Night Raw.
The red brand clearly has the more stacked women’s division, with Charlotte carrying it alongside Bayley, Sasha Banks and Paige, as well as newcomers such as Nia Jax.
With the stacked roster, you expect the women to impress more than their Tuesday night counterparts, and the rumoured plans suggest fans should have more of a reason to be excited.

According to CageSideSeats, despite the amount of excitement Bayley brings to the main roster, she’s expected to lose in her bid to become the Raw Women’s Champion at Clash of Champions later this month, once the match has been officially announced.
This isn’t because they’ve given up on her or anything, in fact, it’s the complete opposite as they have other priorities in store for Bayley next year.
Right now the main priority is to have Sasha come back and challenge Charlotte for the championship she lost at SummerSlam. They could have all three women involved in a feud at once, which could result in a fantastic triple threat match down the line.
They’re currently holding off on having Sasha and Bayley engage in a feud yet; this is something they’re saving for WrestleMania. While the original plan was to have Sasha as the champion for a long time, her injury has changed plans so it looks unlikely they’ll put the gold back on her as soon as she returns.
The advantage they have is that there’s enough time yet for them to gradually build up to a Bayley vs. Sasha match at WrestleMania.
