Bayley may have made her WWE main roster debut at Battleground but don't expect the popular Diva to be a fixture on Raw or Smackdown just yet.

One of the best moments of the Battleground PPV occurred when Sasha Banks revealed her mystery partner to face the tag team of WWE Women's Champion Charlotte, and Dana Brooke.

While names like Nikki Bella and Nia Jax were thrown around as potential partners for "The Boss", the roof blew off of the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. when Bayley's music hit.

It seems, however, that in order to get more of Bayley, fans are going to have to stay tuned in to NXT. In a video taken directly after her team's win the debuting superstar noted that her appearance was "just a one time thing" and that now her focus is back on reclaiming the NXT Women's title.

Bayley is clearly ready for the WWE main roster and many considered her to be an obvious choice to be taken in the WWE Draft last Tuesday when six NXT developmental talents were called up to either Raw or Smackdown.

Instead of Bayley, Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura however, the brand extension saw the immediate call up of the likes of Alexa Bliss, Carmella and Mojo Rawley. It is clear from this that the WWE wants to keep NXT as strong as possible even as it branches into an uncertain future with two totally different rosters for its main shows.

Up next for Bayley, and the other stars of NXT, is the NXT Takeover: Back to Brooklyn special next month. The resident hugger of NXT will be challenging Asuka for the women's title at the event and win or lose her Battleground showing proved that Bayley is going to be a massive draw when she moves to the main roster full time.
