WWE Battleground 2016 results: Bayley debuts, helps Sasha Banks defeat Charlotte, Dana Brooke

WWE kicked off tonight's (July 24, 2016) Battleground pay-per-view (PPV) at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. with a women's tag team match featuring Charlotte and Dana Brooke taking on Sasha Banks and a mystery partner she said no one, not even Dave Meltzer, would be able to guess.

It turned out to be Bayley, who wrestling reporters totally guessed.

She got an unbelievable pop when her music hit and then proceeded to go out and win her first match as a member of the WWE main roster. It was Sasha who submitted Charlotte with the Bank Statement but it was only possible because Bayley was busy taking out Brooke each time she tried to save Charlotte.

It took a time or two, but the good gals came out on top and celebrated together to a bunch of smiling faces in the audience. Then they played up Bayley's hugger gimmick, with Sasha tentative at first but ultimately going in for the warmest of embraces.

Win.
