There’s nothing I hate more than fangirls on Tumblr “shipping” couples. I ship Finn Bayley.
Yes, I know Bayley has had a boyfriend forever, and this is purely kayfabe, but Bálor and Bayley are the best couple since Macho Man and Miss Elizabeth. I want to believe that all of the awkwardness here is 100% legitimate, and the only time they talk is during these NXT house shows. Every other time of the day, they’re avoiding each other like middle schoolers who don’t want to ignore each other. As glorious as the lift was, the awkward middle school “we can fit 12 phone books in between us” dance was my favorite. Bayley screaming “WE DID IT!” after the lift was a close second, because there was probably some doubt going in.
This is like the TV couple you wish was real. Everybody has one, whether it’s April and Andy, Jim and Pam, Ross and Rachel, or Uncle Jesse and Aunt Becky. Every time you see them on screen together you have a little voice in the back of your head reminding you that they’re just actors, and you just want it to shut the hell up.
