Paige wants it, but courage can’t do it by itself. It takes backup, but for some reason no one has been willing to stand by your side, but I know someone who is.

Becky Lynch vs Jessie

With a lock up, Jessie gets a good grasping headlock onto Becky. Jessie then puts Becky down with a shoulderblock and a pinfall but Lynch slides out. Becky gets up and delivers a clothesline and dropkick to Jessie. However, Jessie kicks Becky and goes for a failed pinfall. Jessie then proceeds to slam Becky’s head against the mat and works the left arm of Lynch but stretching it across her midsection. Jessie keeps pushing Becky to the mat, however Becky sneaks in a rollup on Jessie, kickout. Jessie knocks Becky down once again with a knee and applies another lock with her chin and arms, but Becky gets another rollup and Jessie kicks out again. Becky gets offensive with a dropkick and clothesline and wraps up one of Jessie’s arms to deliver a suplex. Becky goes for her coveted leg drops and covers, kickout. Jessie attempts to kick Becky to regain offense but Becky catches her and flattens her on the floor face first. Becky applies her finishing arm bar for the win.

If you’ve watched WWE NXT any time in the past year (and you really should be watching WWE NXT), you’ve likely noticed something: The women’s division is really damn good.

Bolstered by out-of-nowhere performances by the likes of NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks and more, the ladies of NXT have blown up to main-level attractions under the guidance of WWE COO Triple H. As NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable approached, and just hours before Sasha and Ric Flair progeny Charlotte main-evented NXT’s first Live Event in Philadelphia, Charlotte, Sasha, Bayley and Becky Lynch sat down for a roundtable interview with WWE.com. The division’s “Four Horsewomen” opened up on how they got to where they are, where they see themselves going (hint: WrestleMania) and why someday they’ll tell the boys to “Follow that.”

So without further ado, sit back and enjoy some straight shooting from the show-stealin’, wheelin’-dealin’, high-flyin’, revolutionizin’, hug-givin’, match-winnin’ and (onetime) Irish-jiggin’ women — key word — of NXT.

BAYLEY: So we’re talking about women’s wrestling?

WWE.COM: Yeah. It’s a pretty big time for women’s wrestling, don’t you think?

SASHA BANKS: It’s crazy to see how far women’s wrestling has come. Just to find out that me and Charlotte are main-eventing tonight in Philadelphia …

BAYLEY: I didn’t even know that! Oh my God!

BECKY LYNCH: Unbelievable.

SASHA: It’s humbling, but at the same time, who would ever guess? Who would ever guess when I was 10 years old that I’d be main-eventing an event as big as this?There were two women’s matches at TakeOver for a reason.

BECKY: Especially with everyone on the card.

SASHA: It’s insane.

BECKY: Dude, we have Finn Bálor, we have freakin’Rhyno on the card and they get to [compete in the main event] … that’s so cool.

CHARLOTTE: You know the phrase, “Be the hardest worker in the room”? That’s hard with the NXT women’s division, because I can honestly say every girl is the hardest worker in the room. This sounds corny, but if you think of destiny, we’re all here together. Triple H hired Sara Del Rey, and then all of us got hired together at the same time. Considering the chemistry and how much we all want this together and work well together, it’s perfect timing. I don’t know, I get goosebumps just thinking about it.

BECKY: Same. Nine years ago, I stopped wrestling because this wasn’t a possibility. There were never girls like Bayley or Sasha or Charlotte. It’s funny, because I was saying this the other day: I walked down the hallway in the Performance Center and there are all the pay-per-view posters all along the walls, right? And on all of them, every single one, there’s not one single female wrestler. Stephanie McMahon was on one of them, but you’ve got Randy Orton, you’ve got Sheamus, you’ve got Bray Wyatt, you’ve got everybody but you don’t have any women. And I know, I know, in five years when I walk down that hall I’m going to see Bayley; I’m going to see Sasha; I’m going to see Charlotte. Hopefully I’ll see myself, too, but I know I’m going to see them, and it’s not just because they’re good for girls. They’re just good. Just really good, and we’re just changing —

SASHA: We’re good. [Everyone laughs] We’re doin’ it!

BAYLEY: I want people to buy tickets to see us. People want to see John Cena, they want to see all these guys, but I want people to buy tickets because they want to see the girls and they’re looking forward to the Divas matches. There are two women’s matches at TakeOver for a reason. It’s not just like, “give it to them,” and it’s a short time. It’s a two-hour pay-per-view. It’s hard enough to just get one match on any wrestling show for women.Two? That’s freakin’ awesome, and we’re all involved in it and we’re all so supportive of each other. It’s freakin’ cool.

CHARLOTTE: What makes this group of women so special is that when you watch NXT, each female stands out. You’ve got Bayley, who basically, every single person in the stands at NXT can relate to. You’ve got Sasha Banks, “The Boss,” probably the best villain in the company at the moment. You’ve got Becky Lynch —

SASHA: Rock star.We’re not just good for girls. We’re just good.

BECKY: Aww.

CHARLOTTE: She has delts for days, basically plays the part of this fitness model —

BECKY: I do? [Laughs]

CHARLOTTE: Every single person can’t come and say, “Oh, they’re eye candy or the popcorn match.” No, we’re either semi main-eventing or —

SASHA: Main-eventing.

CHARLOTTE: Or main-eventing tonight, where there are two Divas matches [alongside Bayley & Alexa Bliss vs. Becky Lynch & Dana Brooke]. It goes to show we’re just as big a part of the brand as the guys are, and it has a lot to do with how hard we worked. The more they give us, the more we deliver, and the sky is the limit for this group of women.

WWE.COM: How often does Triple H comment on what you guys do? Does he ever give you guidance or does he let you do your own thing?

BAYLEY: He’s amazing. He’s like a papa.

SASHA: Papa Hunter.

BAYLEY AND SASHA: Awww.

BECKY: Oh, man. Right before the Fatal 4-Way, he came up to us and said, “OK, girls, go change history.” Or, “go make history.”

We’re changing the way people look at women’s wrestling. Forever.

BAYLEY: To all four of us, right before we went out. And at the first show in Columbus, Ohio, that was our first NXT show outside Florida, and he had everyone together, all the Superstars and Divas. He said, “We’re gonna show everyone why NXT is so special.” And he said, “We’re gonna show everyone why we’re revolutionizing women’s wrestling.” And for him to say that in front of everybody in the meeting right before one of the biggest shows we’ve ever had is like, “Man, he believes in us.” Individually, he just shows so much interest in each person. Each woman.

SASHA: Each woman.

BAYLEY: He cares.

SASHA: He cares, and you can see it whenever he has a conversation with us. It’s like, “You don’t have to tell me that, but for you to do that and take the time to …”

BAYLEY: And he gets in the ring with us and helps us. He’s got a million things to do but he shows us how we could be better. It’s amazing.

BECKY: That’s our boss!

BAYLEY: The Game!

WWE.COM: Do you think of this as a revolution, or is it just going out and doing your job?

BECKY: Well, that’s what you always want, right? I don’t know. This was something I always dreamed and wanted to be part of, when women’s wrestling was freakin’cool, and now it is. And I guess there would have to be a revolution for that.

BAYLEY: I’m talking way too much, but this is really fun. I was thinking about it on the plane, I think since we’re so in it, we can’t really take a step back and realize that we’re part of it because we’re just doing it. But remember in Daytona, Fla., there was this fan named Megan who loves Becky. She loves her, like she was intears, she loves her so much. But she had all these signs for all of us. And Sasha said, “That’s how we used to be!”

[Everyone laughs]

BAYLEY: We were Megan! We were all Megan at some point, but now we’re the Lita to the Megan, or to the Bayley, you know? It’s crazy. [Sighs] Never thought that would happen.

SASHA: We don’t feel like we’re famous. We just feel like we’re doing what we love.

BAYLEY: Yeah.

BECKY: We’re the luckiest people in the world.

WWE.COM: Were you worried you’d initially be judged purely on your looks, or at least on different merits than the Superstars?

BAYLEY: Yeah, it was, super,super different. I never really felt like I would fit in, just because I was honestly all about wrestling, which, I know all of us are. That’s why we get along so well. But it’s really weird. Even two years ago, how it used to be compared to now is so different. I don’t even know how to explain it.

SASHA: When I came in two years ago, it was nothing like this. It was everything I dreamed of, but it wasn’t going down the path that we are on now. Just to see all these girls come in and put in such hard work … we don’t want to do it likegirls. We don’t want to do it like guys. We just want to do it the best that we can, because we know that we can.

CHARLOTTE: Women are known to be catty, women are known to … [Laughs] you know, it is what it is. But for instance, I didn’t have to work the independents. I didn’t have any kind of wrestling background. Just because my dad was a wrestler didn’t mean I knew anything about the business. But it just goes to show how much we work together that every single woman in our locker room has helped me learn. I didn’t have three or four years [experience]. That’s part of why we’re so good, because every single girl is willing to do what’s best for business, to teach each other, help each other and make the best product possible. And that’s very hard to find within an entire group of women that all want to be on top.

BECKY: Yeah, that’s because that’s what it is. It’s all not just one person. It’s because of all of us at the one time —

CHARLOTTE: Collaborating.

BECKY: It wouldn’t be getting this much attention if it was all about one person. I don’t think anybody feels like that. I don’t think anybody is like, “Oh, I just want to make myself look good,” or whatever. We’re changing the way people are going to look at wrestling, women’s wrestling, forever. Forever. And we’re at the start of it? That’s unbelievable. That’s unbelievable! Unbelievable. Like, main-eventing in Philadelphia? What? This is ridiculous. Stop the lights. Stop the lights.

SASHA: Philly cheesesteaks on me after!

BAYLEY: It’s crazy, because when Emma and Paige were at the top of the game, running the Divas division in NXT at the first pay-per-view, they had their title match. I remember watching it and just thinking, “Dang, I wanna be in that spot someday,” because everybody loved them. And they helped me, and they built this division because that match was so awesome, and it just keeps getting better and better. Now there’s us and there’s our group, because we came together and we’re doing this together and having freakin’ historic matches, but we also have the other up-and-coming girls that are just as good. It’s just going to keep going and going, and as long as we keep passing on the good vibes and they see us working hard, they’re gonna keep working hard. It’s like a cycle and it’s gonna be never-ending, good women’s wrestling. That’s what we want. We just want a path to keep going higher and higher and making it so amazing!

SASHA: You mean a Diva [live special]?

BECKY: Why not?

BAYLEY: They’re main-eventing in Philly, they’re a main draw, who’s to say there’s not a WWE [live special] soon where we could be main-eventing those?It’s crazy how much the guys respect us.

BECKY: Well, I told you! I’m gonna walk down the hallway!

BAYLEY: I know, we talked about this! We’ve main-evented NXT Live Events!

SASHA: Yeah, hello!

[Everyone laughs]

BECKY: I remember when I got signed, I told my friend, “I wanna one day main-event WrestleMania.” And he said, “It’s good to have dreams, but come on. Be realistic.” One day that’s gonna happen! Hopefully a Fatal 4-Way at WrestleMania 33? [Pauses] 34? 33. I like how that sounds.

SASHA: [In an Irish accent] Thirty-three.

CHARLOTTE: Honestly, people ask all the time if we feel pressure to deliver, or do we feel pressure from people putting us in these positions. But I don’t think any of us feel the pressure, just because we’re able to lean on each other. I don’t know how to explain it; you all know what I mean?

SASHA: I feel the pressure.

CHARLOTTE: You feel it, but it’s [collaborative].

SASHA: We wanna do good. It’s good pressure.

CHARLOTTE: We want the opportunities. We want to take the risks.

BAYLEY: Doing it together is what makes it. You know you’re going to be OK if we have each other. It sounds so cheesy, but you know it’s gonna be OK. We can do this.

CHARLOTTE: Like the Fatal 4-Way.

SASHA: Yeah.

WWE.COM: It just goes to show, people are putting you on the same level as the men. Is there ever any competition with the guys in the locker room?

BAYLEY: I don’t know …

BECKY: I don’t think so.

BAYLEY: You know what? I feel like they kind of cling to us more.

CHARLOTTE: I think they respect us more.

SASHA: It’s crazy how much they respect us.

BAYLEY: Yeah.

SASHA: When I was in the indies, the guys would be like, “Ugh, a women’s match. I’m not gonna watch that.” And to come back here, at every single Live Event to have a guy come up to you and say, “That was amazing,” I feel so accomplished. That was always my goal, to have a guy come up to me and go, “That was frickin’ good. I have to follow that?” And I’m like, “Yeah, you do, dude.” It’s such a good feeling. And girls just keep doing it, you know?

BAYLEY: I think NXT as a whole is kind of like a family, so we’re not competitive. We’re supportive. It’s like she was saying, you have Tyler Breeze come up to you after a match and tell you just the littlest things he liked about it, you feel so cool. You feel the love.

WWE.COM: Is this whole growth of the women’s division something Triple H wanted from the beginning, or did it just happen on its own?

CHARLOTTE: Well, he hired Sara Del Rey. So he obviously wanted some kind of focus on the women’s division. But I do think that Paige and Emma’s match at ArRIVAL was kind of [the starting point].

BAYLEY: It demanded the attention. It just kind of happened naturally and we just went with it.

BECKY: I think he wanted it.

CHARLOTTE: I think, especially having three little girls, I think he wants it, but I definitely know now that his main – not that we’re the main focus, but it’s like –

WWE.COM: A big part of it.

CHARLOTTE: We’re a big part of, “OK, NXT, women’s wrestling.”

BECKY: Just society-wise.

CHARLOTTE: Ronda Rousey.

BECKY: Ronda Rousey changing the game for MMA, you know? Dana White said he’d never have a girl in the Octagon. Ronda Rousey comes along and she’s the main event any time she’s on. The women I feel in the UFC are stealing the show. With women empowerment and women coming together, it’s not about being better than the guys or whatever. It’s just about collaboration, it’s about being equal people and having more of a highlight on women’s athletics and just women being equal in every aspect. I think that sometimes people can make the argument, “Oh, well, they’re not as good.” But, can’t say that about us, you know?

[Everyone laughs]

BECKY: That’s why [people who make those arguments] aren’t getting the opportunities. Can’t say that about us. We’re here!

WWE.COM: You guys also seem like you’re encouraged to be yourselves. Becky, you had a character initially –

BECKY: Oh, stop it.

SASHA: I liked the jig dance!

BECKY: People liking the jig dance was why I did it. That was terrible! It killed my soul. When they said, “We don’t like it,” I was like, “Oh, thank God.” [Everyone laughs] Can that be burned?

WWE.COM: Scrub it from WWE Network?

BECKY: Please, if we could.

WWE.COM: But to that point, being allowed to be yourselves does seem to help with how you perform and connect with the audienceDeep down, Sasha really thinks she’s a boss.

SASHA: It does, but we had to build that opportunity for ourselves. We didn’t have that in the beginning.

CHARLOTTE: I don’t think we knew who we were. Like, Sasha and I came in – I’m gonna get emotional – we were tag partners, had no idea, so generic. There was one match in Tampa at FCW and it was against Bayley & Emma. I’d only had about six matches. We were the good guys and people were booing us. Sasha ended up getting her nose broken in the middle of that match, but we didn’t know who we were, there was no substance. But seeing other girls get opportunities, and someone like Becky Lynch coming in, we were just like, “No, give us a chance!”

SASHA: We had to grow.

BAYLEY: You were asking us earlier if we thought we were going to fit into the mold. When I got here, I felt like I had to be a certain way, so I tried to be this Diva.

BECKY: [Laughs]

BAYLEY: It just wasn’t working out and it wasn’t getting me anywhere. And then I just, somehow, turned into myself, and I’m just myself, and that’s what’s making me successful and that’s what’s working for all of us. We’re just ourselves and we’re just doing what we believe in and that’s what’s working.

BECKY: Especially Sasha. [Everyone laughs]

BAYLEY: Deep down inside, she really thinks that about herself.

SASHA: That I’m what? A boss?

BAYLEY: She’s related to Snoop Dogg! [Sasha brushes imaginary dirt off her shoulder] She’s got it in there, she’s related to [“Drop It Like It’s Hot” style] SnoooooooooOOOOP! You have to believe in what you’re doing.

SASHA: I do.

WWE.COM: Last question: Do you call it Divas wrestling or women’s wrestling?

BECKY: Women’s.

BAYLEY: Women’s.

SASHA: Women’s.

CHARLOTTE: I say woman, so. Women’s wrestling.

BAYLEY: That’s what I grew up watching.

NXT Women’s Championship Sasha Banks (c) vs. Becky Lynch

The two both get several two counts early before Becky Lynch lands a shoulder block. Becky goes for the armbar, but Sasha escapes and the two face off.

Becky hits Sasha with an armdrag and kicks her in the face. Sasha quickly turns the tides and drops Lynch’s arm across the ring apron, before tying it up in the ropes. Sasha then goes to a straightjacket submission.

Banks works the submission for several minutes, even throwing in a lungblower. Becky Lynch finally breaks out, but Sasha lands her double knees in the corner to Lynch’s arm before going back to work on it. Sasha Banks is unbelievably good in this match.

Banks applies a short arm scissors after several other arm-based submissions. Lynch lifts her off the ground and and slams her to the mat. Lynch with dropkick off the top rope, but Banks gets a two. Banks hits a springboard arm drag then absolutely demolishes Lynch in the corner with running knees to the face.

The two go for backslides, but both end up outside the ring trading punches. Lynch hits a suplex inside the ring, but can’t lock on the armbar. Instead, Lynch lands an awesome arm-trapped German suplex that gets two. Banks fights back, but out of nowhere Lynch rolls through and gets an armbar. Banks almost taps, but gets to the ropes.

Lynch gets tossed outside the ring, and Banks goes for a suicide dive. Lynch catches her with one arm and heaves Banks into the stairs. Banks locks on the Bank Statement out of nowhere and Lynch taps. This was a beautiful match.

Becky Lynch gets an insane reaction from the crowd after that match.

If you take one look at Becky Lynch, it’s obvious she was meant to be a WWE Diva. Possessing a chiseled physique earned only through hours of hard work in the gym, rippling biceps capable of tearing an opponent’s tendons in her devastating armbar, and the most famous pair of delts in sports-entertainment, it’s easy to see why the Irish beauty is the No. 1 Contender to the NXT Women’s Championship.

That’s why, as Lynch prepares for the biggest match of her career at TakeOver: Unstoppable, it’s almost unbelievable to think she nearly walked away from the sports-entertainment world, never to return.

“If you can believe it, I had no intentions of being a wrestler,” Lynch said.

Becky grew up a wrestling fan in Dublin, Ireland, watching along with her brother. Though she loved the mat game, the thought of actually getting in the ring wasn’t even a dream.

“There were no wrestling schools in Ireland,” she explained. “It was completely unheard of.”

A self-described “alternative kid,” Lynch found herself at a crossroads as a teenager. She was doing poorly in school and eating lots of junk food. Before she went too far down a bad path, Lynch came to a realization.

“I wanted to get fit,” she recalled. “I thought I would do kickboxing, because going to gyms was too mainstream.”

But before she could throw a single kick, though, the unthinkable happened.

“My brother was going to go to England to wrestle, but then we found out they were opening a wrestling school in Bray, County Wicklow,” Lynch said. “I thought, ‘I’ll go along and try that. It’ll get me really fit.’”

Inspired by WWE Divas like Lita, Lynch joined her brother at the wrestling school, where she was trained in part by NXT Superstar Finn Bálor. The school itself was bare-bones. Lynch learned the art of grappling on gym mats rather than inside a squared circle. And though she has no pretentions about her abilities in the early days, she wouldn’t trade those experiences for anything else.

“I was absolutely, diabolically bad,” she chuckled. “But I loved it more than anything.”

Lynch’s love for sports-entertainment only grew from there. She saved her allowance and went to England, training in a wrestling camp while competing in Ireland twice a week. At 17, she enrolled in college, studying history, politics and philosophy. While she loved being in the ring, Lynch was still focused on the idea of having a regular 9-to-5 job.

“I didn’t think [wrestling] was what I was going to do,” she explained. “I was going to be a lawyer.”

Eventually, she left school, and Ireland, heading across the Atlantic to Canada, simply because she figured “they had better wrestling there,” on account of the Hart family’s legacy.

“I was earning 50 dollars a show and sleeping on friends’ couches,” she said.

Lynch’s in-ring acumen improved with every match, and at 18, she caught the eye of a Japanese women’s promotion. At an age when most teenagers are finishing up high school, Lynch was earning her stripes in a place many wrestlers spend a lifetime trying to get to.

“I was completely overwhelmed,” Lynch said of her time in Japan. “One of the largest ad agencies there wanted to take me on and promote me as a celebrity wrestler. I remember having a different kind of fear, an excited fear.”

She continued to compete around the world, but that overwhelming feeling kept creeping up on the teenaged Lynch.

“I was 19 and thought, ‘Maybe I need to settle down and get a real job,’” she said. “I decided to take different avenues.”

After making the decision to walk away from wrestling, Lynch went on a search to find the right career. She may not have realized it at the time, but it became a journey of self-discovery.

“I did personal training and was like, ‘This doesn’t feel right,’” Lynch explained. “I ended up working as a flight attendant for two and a half years, waking up feeling like, ‘This isn’t what I’m meant to do.’ It was a great job for anybody else.”

When she wasn’t pointing out where airplane exits were, Lynch took advantage of the jet-setting life, learning skills like martial arts, surfing and scuba diving. Eventually, the future Diva came to the realization that she needed to perform and returned to college to earn a degree in acting. During that time, she took part in bodybuilding competitions and even went to clown college.

“I did my thesis on clowns,” she said. “It’s a powerful thing when you’ve got this little red nose on. It’s a mask, the smallest in the world, but it unveils you. You stand up there and do these exercises that free you, let you play and see what comes out. What comes out is the truth.”

Lynch began looking for acting work, but with a résumé that listed wrestling, mixed martial arts, sword fighting, stunt driving and juggling, she soon found herself as a stuntwoman on the TV show “Vikings.” Still, an empty feeling crept up on her every now and then.

“[Nothing] captured my heart the way wrestling did,” Lynch said. “I did all these things that were separating the aspects of wrestling and trying to make it fit.”

Slowly, it dawned on Lynch that the ring was still calling her name.

“I’ve kept journals my entire life,” she explained. “During that time, I would always write, ‘I feel like there’s unfinished business. I feel like I should be in WWE, but I don’t know how to get there.’”

When she went to an Irish wrestling school to practice some moves for her stunt work, the trainer there asked Lynch if she had ever tried out for WWE, and urged the Irish beauty to give it a go. Lynch impressed WWE brass when she eventually tried out, earning herself a coveted spot at the WWE Performance Center in 2013.

Upon arriving at NXT, Lynch knew she was finally home.

“You know when people say ‘When you know, you know’?” Lynch said. “I knew. It’s been tough at times, but I’ve never been happier in my life. I just feel like this is what I’m meant to do.”

After debuting as a true Irish lass – jigs and all – Lynch has found her footing in the buzzworthy NXT Women’s Division as a version of that alternative girl who ventured into a bare-bones wrestling academy more than a decade ago.

“I feel like the girls here in NXT are revolutionizing the business, as far as Divas are concerned,” she said. “It gives me goosebumps to talk about it. The work ethic and collective ambition of all the girls here is unbelievable. Everyone is talking about the NXT Women’s Division because of that energy.”

But when talk turns toward Lynch’s showdown with NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks at TakeOver: Unstoppable, the unmatched passion of a woman who is truly comfortable in her surroundings after years of searching for her place in the world shines through.

“My goal is to be NXT Women’s Champion,” she said confidently. “I’m ready to take over.”

Two of NXT’s brightest stars will clash for the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver: Unstoppable, when Sasha Banks defends her title against Becky Lynch.

The rivalry between the two Divas can be traced back to last October, when Lynch joined forces with Banks. Known as Team BAE (Best at Everything), the two ran roughshod over the NXT Women’s division, doing everything in their power to make sure Banks captured the NXT Women’s Title. However, their friendship began to fracture after Lynch made it clear she aspired to be more than a lackey to The Boss.

Their tenuous friendship seemed to be a positive as they entered a Fatal 4-Way Match against Charlotte and Bayley for the title at TakeOver: Rival in February, until the championship dreams of both Divas led to a furious butting of heads. At the end of the epic match-up, it was Banks who walked out with the title.

On April 22, Lynch defeated Charlotte and Bayley in a Triple Threat Match to become the No. 1 Contender to Banks’ championship. The Irish Diva let The Boss know soon after that it wouldn’t be long before the title was around her waist.

The two Divas met in the ring on May 6 to sign the contract for their showdown at TakeOver. Before signing her name on the dotted line, Lynch detailed the journey that started when she was 15 to that very moment, explaining that she didn’t come to just be a part of NXT, she came to be a champion. After putting her own stamp (literally) on the contract, Banks attacked Lynch, eventually stepping on Becky’s head while holding her title high. However, The Boss took a little too much time to gloat, giving Becky an opening to lock on a devastating armbar that forced Sasha to tap out in the middle of the ring.

Will Becky Lynch’s dreams come true or will Sasha Banks show why she’s The Boss of NXT? Find out at NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable, LIVE on the award-winning WWE Network on Wednesday, May 20 at 8 ET/5 PT.

We see a video package of Becky Lynch’s past and her accomplishments and storied history in pro wrestling to this date, as the NXT brand seems to continue the push for the Irish starlet.

William Regal then comes out to the ring for the NXT Women’s championship contract signing between Becky Lynch and the champion, Sasha Banks. Lynch grabs the mic and reminds the audience of her global wrestling exploits since her youth, saying that there were points where she didn’t believe this moment was possible, but that every mistake and sacrifice was worth it for the sake of getting to the point of winning the NXT Women’s championship. Banks doesn’t say a word, but merely uses a personalised stamp to sign, before throwing the contract at Lynch and beginning an assault on the challenger. Lynch is able to fight out though, and applies her brutal armbar to The Boss, who frantically taps out before Regal is finally able to restrain them.

Charlotte vs. Bayley vs. Becky Lynch (Number 1 contender’s match)

Bayley comes to the ring first, to a typically big pop from the NXT faithful. Lynch is out next, followed by Charlotte. Charlotte is first to attack, targeting Becky Lynch, and Bayley joins her in doing so, the pair sitting some double team moves, but the alliance doesn’t last long as a flurry of pinfalls begin. The pair continue respective assaults on Lynch, forcing her to exit the ring, before Bayley and Charlotte exchange chops and forearms, before Bayley is finally able to gain the upper hand with forearm smashes in the corner. Bayley’s momentum is short-lived however, as Charlotte counters and hits figure-four headlocks repeatedly as she seizes control in a brutal manner. She continues the assault on Bayley, however Lynch returns to the ring and targets Charlotte, hitting a huge suplex as we go to a commercial.

Becky Lynch asserts dominance over Bayley as we return, hitting forearms to the back of the head, and a trio of running leg drops off the ropes, giving her a near fall. She targets the left knee of Bayley with some stiff kicks, and follows that with a leg-lock submission, Bayley reverses however and almost steals one with a near fall. Lynch attempts to reassert herself, but Bayley gets fired up with a few stiff shots, but as she attempts a spear into the corner, Lynch rolls through and locks in a modified cloverleaf submission in the centre of the ring. Bayley has nowhere to go, but Charlotte makes the save with a Natural Selection to Becky Lynch, almost stealing one before Bayley makes the save from the pin.

The crowd chant ‘this is wrestling’ as Charlotte and Bayley ascend the top rope, but Lynch pulls Charlotte’s legs away and herself ascends, attempting a superplex on Bayley, before Charlotte lifts her for a powerbomb, with Bayley hitting a diving elbow as Charlotte slams her. Fantastic double-team move reminiscent of the Road Warriors, and the crowd respond with ‘holy s***’ chants. Bayley hits a fisherman suplex on Charlotte, before a Bayley to Belly on Lynch almost give her the win before Charlotte makes the save, before applying the figure four leg-lock to Bayley, and though Bayley is able to get to the ropes, Charlotte merely pulls her away and reapplies the hold. Charlotte bridges her body to make the move a ‘figure eight’, but as the hold is applied, Becky Lynch drapes an arm over Bayley for an unexpected three count. A fantastic contest from these fantastic female competitors.

Winner and Number 1 Contender: Becky Lynch

Backstage, Sasha Banks congratulates Becky Lynch but tells her she will not take the NXT Women’s title from her, claiming that she made Lynch. Lynch responds by claiming that she made herself, and tells her to save it for the ring.
