– In the video above, Bayley, Mandy Rose, Nikki Glencross and Billie Kay discuss Nia Jax, Alexa Bliss and Carmella being drafted to the main roster. Bayley also admitted that she was looking forward to being drafted.
“I’d be lying if I said I didn’t want to go to RAW or SmackDown,” Bayley admitted. “Like I’ve always done with this, I always have to look at the positive side and right now my main goal is to go after the NXT Womens Championship and become the first-ever two time NXT Womens Champion.”

– WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley talked about the draft being a big night for women’s wrestling in his latest Facebook post, and expressed his excitement with Sasha Banks being drafted to RAW. He wrote:
“THIS MAGIC MOMENT
This backstage promo for the #WWE Facebook page might not have seemed like a big deal, but to the three of us -me, Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, it was very special; two of the best wrestlers on the planet, and one of their most vocal supporters (I really did drive 12 hours to watch their May 2015 ?#?Takeover? match) on camera together for the first time.
I am thrilled to be working with the #LegitBoss every Monday on ?#?RAW?, and know that Becky will be a big success on #SmackDownLive. I thought the #WWE draft was a big night for #WomensWrestling – with Charlotte drafted 3rd overall, and Sasha and Becky both going within the first 15. It was important to both me and Stephanie McMahon that we draft a woman in the first round as a statement. In retrospect, I wish I’d pushed harder for Sasha and Becky to go in the top ten – but I think the sky is the limit for these two.”
