SPOILER ALERT FOR NXT TAKEOVER: BROOKLYN, OBVIOUSLY
If you’re a regular reader of the Best and Worst of NXT, you know that our favorite Full Sail NXT regular is Izzy, the kid who comes to shows dressed as her favorite wrestler, Bayley.
Bayley stepped into the ring with NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks for the biggest match of her life on Saturday night … only it wasn’t at Full Sail University in Florida, it was in Brooklyn, in the sold-out Barclays Center. That meant Izzy wouldn’t be in the crowd, and Bayley’s biggest fan wouldn’t be in the front row.
Izzy’s family is awesome, though, so they made sure to record her reaction to the finish. Spoiler alert, Bayley vs. Sasha Banks was one of the best matches of the year, and one of the most emotional moments in NXT history. Also a spoiler alert, this clip will make your heart grow three sizes.
If Izzy and her family couldn’t be at the Barclays Center for the match, let’s hope they’re in the front row again when Bayley returns to Full Sail with the championship. Wrestling can matter, and it can be the most amazing thing in the world. Congratulations, Bayley. You too, Izzy.
Edit: Here’s a slightly longer video. Tears again, not gonna lie.
