The main roster WWE women's scene has been dominated by Bayley and Sasha Banks for some time, as evidenced by their accumulation of gold. Especially in the absence of Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair, the two are being counted on to anchor the divisions.
Seth Rollins spoke to Alex McCarthy to talkSPORT, and lauded both Bayley and Sasha for their efforts to buoy WWE's women's divisions, saying, "I think it’s no secret that Bayley and Sasha [Banks] have done their god damnedest to fill in with Becky being out and the women’s division just being wide open. Charlotte Flair being out now too.
"The women have been lagging behind Becky and Charlotte for some time and now it’s time for them to step up and do their thing. Asuka has stepped up too, as well, but I do think Bayley and Sasha have been great. They’ve filled that void as best as they possibly can and have been working like crazy as Tag Team champs and now RAW and SmackDown champs."
Rollins does acknowledge the eternal need to build new stars, and spoke of Paul Heyman's exit as Raw's Executive Director, adding, "I think the emphasis is still on building stars for the future. Particularly during this time when there’s a lot of performers who are either opting out for their own safety or they are people that are getting sick here and there, so we’re missing a lot of our top-tier talent due to various circumstances.
"But the emphasis is still certainly on building future stars and I don’t want Paul Heyman’s departure to be a reason why anybody thinks that that’s not the case, because it definitely is the case."
