WWE Star Calls Payback Bout “One Of The Best Of All Time”

There is one WWE star who singled out a match at the Payback PLE as one of the best of all time.

The NXT Women’s Champion Tiffany Stratton was on hand in Pittsburgh at WWE’s Payback PLE last weekend to witness one of the best women’s matches ever, in the opinion of many people.

Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus opened the show with a Steel Cage Match to try to settle their rivalry that started about five months ago. It was Lynch’s chance to finally get her hand on Stratus without Zoey Stark getting involved in the match.

Even though it looked like Lynch had the match won, Stark arrived to prevent the victory. However, Lynch managed to drop Stark with a Manhandle Slam and Lynch finished off Stratus with a Manhandle Slam off the turnbuckle as well. The match was praised heavily by fans while WWE’s Michael Cole called it one of the best matches of the year.

During an interview on WWE’s The Bump, Tiffany Stratton praised the Lynch-Stratus match heavily.

“Honestly, that match was insane. I feel like that was one of the best cage matches of all time.”

“Every time that I thought it was going to end, it didn’t. They definitely got me. I just thought it was an amazing match.”

“It was so cool to see in person and hearing the crowd, it was insane. And I hope to have a moment like that one day.”

Tiffany Stratton faces Becky Lynch on NXT

On the September 5th edition of NXT, Tiffany Stratton successfully defended the NXT Women’s Title against Kiana James.

After the match, Becky Lynch appeared on the screen to inform Stratton that not only was Lynch coming to NXT this week, but Stratton will defend her title against Lynch. This was set up because Stratton had a backstage chat with Lynch where they exchanged words. Lynch warned Stratton that she might see her soon.

Becky Lynch has done it all in WWE and won all the championships that women can win, but she has never been NXT Women’s Champion. This coming Tuesday, Lynch will have that opportunity against Stratton.
