Welcome to our new section – Today In History. Each day we will spotlight one moment in wrestling that is significant to that particular day or to the careers of certain Superstars.
On this day, March 20, Bayley made her televised debut 7 years ago. She faced Paige in a singles action, where she lost to the Scorpion Cross Lock. It was certainly a different era for Bayley, before her signature ponytail as a babyface, or her short hair now. She still didn’t have an official theme song. It would take a couple of months for her to be properly introduced to the NXT audience with a ‘Hugger’ gimmick. Seven years later, she has a completely different character and is the current, record-setting, SmackDown Women’s Champion.
