2. Bayley

Bayley Dos Straps is currently dominating the WWE Women’s division as a whole which makes her one of the top five women in WWE. Some may say this is thanks in part to her best friend Sasha Banks while others will say it’s thanks to her heel turn, but whatever the case, there is still no denying that Bayley has been on fire this year.

Currently, Bayley is the WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion (and currently the longest reigning) and is one half of the WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions, alongside her BFF Sasha Banks. Let’s not forget that Bayley is also the inaugural Grand Slam Champion, meaning the first Women to hold all belts currently available to the WWE women’s wrestlers.

Furthermore, Bayley Dos Straps has been the reigning and defending WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion since 2019 after she dethroned The Queen for the title. Being the reigning Champion for over nine months puts Bayley at the top of the food chain, and she has proved just how untouchable she is after successfully defending her title against the likes of Tamina, Naomi, Dana Brooke, and Lacey Evans. Let’s not forget to mention that one of these successful title defenses was in a 6-Pack Elimination match at this past WrestleMania.

What’s more is the fact that The Role Model continues to prove exactly why she is the woman to beat by going on to become a part of the current WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions after defeating Alexa Bliss and Nikki Cross on an episode of SmackDown. This win is also what propelled Bayley to become a double champion, which is an accolade that many see as an impenetrable. This fact is further proven when it is taken into account that very few women in WWE have this same accomplishment outside of Becky Lynch and Paige.

Bayley is one of the top five women in WWE so far this year as she has been flying across every WWE brand as of recent. From carrying the SmackDown Women’s division on her back, to beating up Asuka on Raw, and showing Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart who the dominant tag team is, Bayley has been mopping the floor with her competitors.

With this heel turn, it looks like the sky’s the limit for the Role Model, and with Banks by her side, it looks like this is exactly where they are headed.
