Your Monday Post #146: Sasha Banks vs Peyton Royce on WWE NXT (May, 13th 2015)
Welcome All to this weeks first reflective on moments in women’s wrestling. We are Days Clear of the NXT San Antonio Fatal 4 Way that concluded with the extension of Asukas Undefeated Streak, and coming out of the match is the talk on Peyton Royce as the Star of that particular match, despite being the one to be pinned by the still NXT Women’s Champion. With that in mind, lets jump back to Peyton’s first match on NXT Television, that being well before the development of her current gimmick.
Going under the name of Cassie McIntosh, Peyton would be the one woman standing in the way of NXTs then Heel Women’s Champion Sasha Banks, who was only days away from defending the title against her former friend Becky Lynch. Carrying 5 Years of experience within the industry, Peyton looked to put that to good use to try look like a credible competitor against NXTs top female star, but no one could deny the work of the lethal Bank Statement, the finishing submission of the champion that soon put Peyton away, awarding Sasha the pre PPV victory.
