Why Bayley will be key in NXT Takeover: Dallas

With the biggest night on the professional wrestling calendar just days away, there are several events set to take place alongside WrestleMania 32, including a huge event for the NXT talent.

It is difficult to believe that, just one year ago, wrestlers such as Finn Balor, Sasha Banks and Sami Zayn, were performing to much smaller crowds to what they are now.

To say 2015 was the year when NXT properly took off would be an understatement; the last twelve months have been about so much more than just bringing success for a few professional wrestlers.

WrestleMania 32

One of the leading contributors to NXT's success last year was current NXT Women's Championship Title Holder, Bayley.

Throughout her rise up the NXT roster, Bayley has represented what it takes to be a determined and committed female wrestler, even at the age of just 26.

Bayley has doubtlessly come a long way since this time last year, as she will be taking part in one of the hugely anticipated matches at NXT Takeover: Dallas this coming Friday.

Everyone's favourite 'hugger' will take on the incredibly talented Asuka, as the former puts her Title on the line on April 1.

As Wrestle Zone has reported, Bayley is all too aware of the importance of the bout, as she recently stated during Busted Open with Doug Mortman and Dave LaGreca:

"Now I’m in this spot, the spot that I wanted to be and I told myself that’s where I wanted to be.

I wanted to be in the championship picture and now I’m the champion, so I really need to prove to myself that this is where I belong."

No comparison

Ultimately, the overall card for NXT Takeover: Dallas, despite having fewer matches, has already come out on top when compared with the match card confirmed for WrestleMania 32, just two days later.

Whilst the 'Mania card has come about as a result of a number of unplanned injuries, it seems the best WWE could produce is little comparison to the incredible line-up which NXT have revealed.

As for the Diva's Division of WWE in particular, the effect the likes of previous NXT Divas such as Becky Lynch, Charlotte and Sasha Banks, formerly had, has since worn off.

With this in mind, there is little hope that either of the Diva's matches which are scheduled for WrestleMania 32 will be on the same level as Bayley facing Asuka, which says a lot about WWE's creative team.

There is no doubt that to followers of professional wrestling, NXT will gain even more fans following its Takeover event on Friday night, with Bayley playing a crucial role yet again, in the brand's success.
