Bayley’s not NXT Women’s Champion anymore. She mislaid to a newbie and can’t seem to get her hands behind on that desired belt. She’s noticed as a maestro in a NXT Women’s Division, and she thinks that means that she’s a has-been. She hasn’t done it to a categorical register yet, and her beating and miss of courage is starting to show. The throng seems to consider she’s on her approach up, though Bayley isn’t convinced. Will she finally get her large mangle during Battleground?

Dennis Hopeless takes us by Bayley’s thoughts as she’s examination her dreams trip by her fingers. Her middle onslaught is real, and Hopeless’s middle discourse creates Bayley seem “a small doe-eyed.” His story creates a wish so most some-more for Bayley.

For another month, Kendall Goode stairs in to pull a few pages of this story. The opposite art is noticeable, and we tend to like Serg Acuna’s design on this book better. However, Goode’s oddly-shaped panels with an roughly fish-eye-lens demeanour to a movement sequences from NXT TakeOver are fun and fast-paced, standard of an NXT match.

Doug Garbark’s tone choices are ideal for this story. The pinks, purples, and pastel tones are wise for a Bayley saga.


Asuka’s finally fasten Team Red and is streamer to RAW. Her entrance is scheduled, and she’s prepared to go. But first, a discerning stop during a Performance Center puts her face to face with Tini Howard’s favorite superstar, Finn Balor. It was also a good hold to have her association with Shield brothers Dean Ambrose and Seth Rollins, with Roman Reigns tucked in a background. (For those who don’t follow WWE storylines, a Shield were a print boys of a TLC Pay Per View until Reigns was sidelined with a mumps only days before a event.) Hyoenjin Kim’s design exquisitely captures a petite glower of The Goddess Alexa Bliss and a loftiness of The Empress of Tomorrow.


Bayley’s story has come to an end, though unequivocally it’s only her beginning. She continues to do good things on a WWE categorical roster, and there ain’t no stoppin’ her now!
