Bayley thinks she & Sasha Banks can keep their storyline going until WrestleMania 37

FRIENDSHIP AT A CROSSROAD…

 

It looks like WWE is building toward a match between Sasha Banks and Bayley again. Unless they aren’t… they’ve certainly strung along fans who want to see a sequel to their NXT feud before.

 

Friendship at cross-road

 

But let’s say they are finally giving the two Horsewomen the green light to work together as something other than tag partners and allies. That’s certainly the premise Justin Barrasso was operating under when he interviewed Bayley for Sports Illustrated recently.

Barrasso asked if the former Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection could do a year long build for a match at WrestleMania 37, a la John Cena & The Rock. Bayley acknowledged that it wouldn’t be easy, but thinks she and Banks could pull it off…

“I think we can. We’ve bounced ideas off each other for as long as we’ve known each other, and we learn from each other so much. With all of our ideas and how much we are trusted by the people backstage, I think it’s possible. It would be challenging, but I think that would be so cool.

Someday, I hope we do get to work together again. She’s my favorite person to be in the ring with, obviously, so I would be down to try.”

SummerSlam in Boston seemed like a logical place for a showdown between Sasha & Bayley, but some of the appeal may fade away if that becomes an empty arena show.

Would WWE let them slow burn all the way to (hopefully) Southern California next spring?

Let us know what you think below, and check out SI’s entire interview with Bayley for talk of mind-readers, her current program with Tamina, and the 1997 – 98 Chicago Bulls.

Gilles Simon believes doping rumours were spread about Rafael Nadal as many were uncomfortable with the idea he could simply be better than Roger Federer.

There were allegations of a connection between Nadal and Eufemiano Fuentes, the doctor who was ultimately jailed for his part in a Spanish cycle doping scandal.

No evidence has ever been produced linking Fuentes to Nadal, though, who has always very successfully denied any rumours to the contrary.

However, Simon believes the rumours only existed to discredit opinions that Nadal could actually be a better tennis players than Federer rather than just a better athlete.

“It is difficult to conceive [for some] that, in terms of game, Rafael Nadal could be better than Roger Federer,” Gilles Simon wrote in his new autobiography This Sport That Makes You Crazy

“We even spread rumours of doping on his account.

“Nadal does not fit into the framework. Moreover, I emphasize here that we never talk about the physique of Federer, who has little to envy that of Nadal.

“That he went five sets at 35 like what he did in Australia in 2017, it’s extraordinary. But no one noted this point.”
