Bayley didn’t get drafted from NXT, but she’s super happy for those who did

Six of the 59 picks in last night’s (July 19, 2016) WWE Draft went to members of the NXT roster, representing their main roster call up. Considering how long she’s been down in NXT, how she’s so clearly ready for it, and the fact that the brand split has created a great need for real stars on Raw and SmackDown, it seemed obvious Bayley would be one of the six called up.

She was not.

But she was still super happy for those who did (full list here):

Baymella, forever:

Nia Jax, Alexa Bliss, and Carmella were all deserving in their own right, and there are plenty of reasons to keep Bayley down in NXT, sure, but this would have felt much better if the Hugger got her time to shine.

Alas, the wait continues.
