WWE wrestler Bayley was interviewed by Mirror.co.uk. The following are the highlights of the interview.
Bayley on the possibility of feuding with Sasha Banks again: “I would love for that to happen and I really do think that we have such a great chemistry and it’s just a natural bond, that it doesn’t matter when it happens, we can pick it up anywhere. Not to sound cocky or anything, but I just think we have a really good connection. Whenever we have the time to tell that story, we would be able to. And last night after what she did, I think now is a good time! So I would love to start that up and get some payback.”
Bayley on the first women’s Elimination Chamber match: “We all put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make sure that WWE giving us these opportunities, they don’t feel like they made a mistake, or that we’ve failed them or anything. We do put a lot of pressure on ourselves to make sure we have a really good performance and I feel like last night everybody did such a great job of really making this history-making match a memorable one. I honestly felt comfortable as soon as the bell rang. I was really intimidated going into it obviously and really scared of all the things that could go wrong, or anybody getting hurt, but I felt really comfortable. And it felt like the crowd was so ready for it and so into it.”
Powell’s POV: Bayley also acknowledged the Lion King inspired spot where Sasha Banks turned on her during the Chamber match, which Jake Barnett mentioned in our members’ exclusive Elimination Chamber review on Sunday night. I’m all for Bayley vs. Banks. I just hope that Bayley remains the babyface and Banks is turned to play the heel role that she seems naturally suited for.
