She’s a friend. There have been several teams throughout the years in WWE and some of them develop quite the friendship during their time together. Every so often you will see that friendship continue after the wrestlers leave a promotion, but it is much rarer to see it continue when one star is in a different promotion entirely. That was on display over the weekend.

Over the weekend, Mercedes Mone, better known as Sasha Banks during her time in WWE, defeated Kairi to become the new IWGP Women’s Champion. A fan shot video from the match shows Mone’s former partner Bayley in the crowd, helping lead chants for Mone. There was no mention of Bayley being at the show and she was not recognized in any way. Bayley and Mone were the inaugural WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions.

This was a cool visual. Check out Bayley in the crowd, plus the two in their WWE days:

Opinion: That is the kind of thing that makes a match feel all the more special and Bayley certainly helped. Mone winning the title and starting to pick up steam outside of WWE is cool to see. Throw in her old partner Bayley there to help celebrate makes it all the better. This was a special moment as you do not see wrestlers appearing as fans for their colleagues very often, but it worked here.
