Cattie’s Catch Up: Emma vs Bayley on WWE NXT (May, 27th 2015)
Welcome all to this weeks edition of Cattie’s Catch Up, and while everyones heads are rolling or in a state of confusion as to whats going on regarding the Emmalina character that showed up on RAW earlier this week, lets remind you of the Emma we hope was hinted on coming back to the main roster soon. Emma had returned to NXT in 2015 after her main roster run didnt go entirely according to plan with popularity stooping, a heel turn complete in March when she was unable to turn Bayley against the fans.
Along with her heel turn, Emma gained a follower in Dana Brooke, who would play as her manageress over time. The Alliance was challenged by Bayley and Charlotte at NXT Takeover Unstoppable that year, and the pairing didn’t come out triumphant, though they gained a measure of revenge seven days later at the follow up NXT episode, when Emma and Dana attacked Bayley and Charlotte following Emma’s victory over the Huggable One. When the feud concluded, along with Dana’s angle with Charlotte, the two were then moved into a storyline with the newcomer of NXT later that year, Asuka, which lead to the duo having their most important and most established singles matches to date against the undefeated, proclaimed “Empress of Tomorrow”.
