After they both joined the main roster, WWE continuously had Bayley and Sasha Banks work together.A breakup between the longtime best friends always felt inevitable. Throughout the years, WWE would tease a split, only to have Banks and Bayley to continue their partnership together.Last summer, Banks turned heel for the first time since joining the main roster by attacking Natalya on the Aug. 12 episode of Monday Night Raw. Three weeks later, Bayley helped Banks attack Becky Lynch, thus turning heel in the process.Banks and Bayley spent the next year together working as a heel duo. They enjoyed a brief run together as the Women’s Tag Team Champions before losing them to Nia Jax and Shayna Baszler at Payback.

There was even a short period where Banks (the Raw Women’s Champion) and Bayley (the SmackDown Women’s Champion) stood as double champions.

But the partnership came to an end after Banks and Bayley lost a rematch to Jax and Baszler on the Sept. 4 episode of Raw. An angry Bayley viciously attacked her friend and tag team partner, who was taken to the hospital after suffering storyline injuries (a bruised knee and a compressed nerve in her neck).

So why did WWE wait so long to finally break the two up?

On Wrestling Observer Radio (h/t Jeffrey Harris of 411Mania.com), Dave Meltzer offered a simple explanation: Banks and Bayley were doing a great job together as a duo, which prompted WWE to procrastinate their split.
