6. The Role Model Turns On Banks
Guess it was a year where BFFs turned on each other, and such was the case for Bayley and Sasha Banks. The two rode a very high wave in 2020, and many ways were the MVPs for the WWE during a year where COVID crippled morale on all fronts. Still, while they are good together, Banks and Bayley also offer incredible storytelling when they are on opposite sides of the ring, and the company finally pushed the button on their main roster feud in early September, when Bayley attacked bestie Banks.
5. Roman Returns
Much like every other PPV after March, SummerSlam just didn’t feel the same. With that said, Roman Reigns unexpected and shocking return at the close of the event was wild. Not only were fans happy to see him back in action, but questions lingered on whether he was coming back as a top face or a heel. Those would be answered in the weeks following, and while the WWE Universe loves to hate it, it’s undeniable that RR has done some of his best work on the mic and in the ring since he turned.
4. Middle Fingers Aimed Right At VKM

From Heath Slater to Eric Young, Karl Anderson, and Luke Gallows, plus EC3, their post-event picture that was tweeted by Tommy Dreamer said it all.
