What Were The Original Plans For Bayley's Women's Championship Reign?

Dave Meltzer noted on his most recent episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that WWE had initially planned for Bayley to win the RAW Women's Championship at WrestleMania 33, likely in a fatal four way with Charlotte, Sasha Banks and Nia Jax. She would have then defended the title at Payback in April, which takes place in her hometown of San Jose.

There's no word yet on whether Bayley will in fact head into Payback as champion, or why WWE chose to have her win the title on RAW last week instead. Either way, the stars still seem aligned for a fatal four way at WrestleMania.
