WWE recently listed the top ten women's matches in their entire history and Sasha Banks and Bayley's match at NXT Takeover: Brooklyn got the top spot.
It has never been better to be a female wrestler in WWE than it is right now. The women's revolution rages on and the roster continue to make history on an almost monthly basis. We have seen Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks become the first women to step inside Hell In A Cell, The Boss and 29 other Superstars from the past and present compete in the first ever women's Royal Rumble match, and we have also seen the first ever female Money In The Bank and Elimination Chamber matches.
While there were plenty of women before the current crop that were extremely talented they rarely got a spotlight to demonstrate that. Wrestlers such as Trish Stratus, Lita and Beth Phoenix were WWE Superstars during a time that women were objectified for their looks in WWE rather than judged on their in ring ability. That's why eight of the top ten best WWE women's matches recently listed on WWE.com are from the past few years.
The only two matches from before that which have made the list are Trish and Lita's Raw main event from 2004 and Bull Nakano versus Alundra Blayze at SummerSlam ten years earlier. As great as both those matches were neither of them made it into the number one spot on the list, coming in at six and nine respectively. The honor of being labeled the best women's match of all time by WWE goes to the bout between Banks and Bayley at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.
The epic match between the two good friends is very deserving of being number one and was the first of two matches the pair had for the NXT Women's Championship. Even though this was arguably the better of the two matches the second a couple of months later also made history as Banks and Bayley competed in a 30 minute Ironman match. With matches like those two it's understandable why WWE might have them do battle again at WrestleMania 34.
Despite the fact that Bayley defeated Banks in both of their clashes over the NXT Women's Title, The Boss does have one up over The Hugger following the compilation of this match list by WWE. Banks competed in five of the matches on the list, an incredible achievement, while Bayley was only present in four of them which is still pretty amazing. Reading this list proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that women's wrestling hasn't only been incredible for the past few years, but it looks like it is only going to keep on improving.
