WWE Battleground 2016 results: Bayley debuts as Sasha Banks mystery partner

Fans who follow NXT and women's wrestling were shocked last Tuesday when Bayley, who's grown to be the most popular of that brand's famous Four Horsewomen and the only one not called up in 2015 as part of the so-called "Divas Revolution", wasn't among the six NXT draft picks chosen by Raw and SmackDown Live when selecting their rosters.

Rumors hit earlier today this may have all been part of a plan.

Sasha Banks chase of Charlotte and her Women's title is likewise rumored to be heading to SummerSlam, so at tonight's Battleground pay-per-view (PPV), they booked a tag match for The Boss against the champ and her partner, Dana Brooke.

You can put two and two together, wrestling fans.

The Hugster was met with a thunderous ovation from a Washington, D.C. crowd who was clearly expecting her. The heels immediately attacked, and we were off. We'll have results of the bout for you later.

Meanwhile, JBL said on commentary this is "This is a one time only opportunity for Bayley to be on the WWE roster".

What's next for Bayley?

Stay tuned.
