Bayley was the first wrestler to compete at MSG on back-to-back nights for 20 years thanks to her matches on Raw and SmackDown this week.
Madison Square Garden is the unofficial home of WWE. However, its relationship with the iconic arena has been damaged a little in recent years. That's largely due to WWE preferring to take its big New York shows to the Barclays Center instead and only uses MSG for house shows. That led to MSG playing host to a NJPW/ROH supershow earlier this year.
That clearly irked WWE somewhat as this week, for the first time in a decade, it aired Raw and SmackDown live from MSG. The occasion felt even more special due to the inclusion of Stone Cold on the first show, and The Undertaker on the second. Plus, thanks to the wildcard rule, a couple of lucky Superstars had the chance to compete at the arena twice.
The first wrestler to do so was Bayley. The SmackDown Women's Champion teamed with Sasha Banks on Raw in a losing effort against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. She then made up for that loss by defeating Ember Moon in singles action the following night on SmackDown. By doing so, Bayley made a little bit of history in the process.
According to Adam Kirshner, those two matches made Bayley the first wrestler to compete on back-to-back nights at MSG in 20 years. Fans didn't have to wait another two decades for someone to join her on that list. Later on Tuesday night, Gran Metalik competed on 205 Live. Since he wrestled Rey Mysterio the night before, that means the luchador became the second Superstar to compete at MSG on back-to-back nights.
The one piece of information we currently don't know is who the last Superstar was. Late 1999, we're assuming it was someone like Stone Cold or The Rock. It might even be someone a little more obscure. Perhaps Essa Rios. Whoever it was, congratulations to both Bayley and Gran Metalik. Bayley is clearly pretty proud of the achievement as she has replied to Kirshner's original tweet.
