Bayley was recently a guest on the Baby Huey and Bimbo Jimbo Show and talked about her WrestleMania experience, Dusty Rhodes, and more. Here are the highlights they sent along:
On her Wrestlemania experience:
“I still can’t really wrap my mind around it…mind blowing and being on the same show as the Hardy Boys, that’s when it really hit me, and the little kid in me was really freaking out, and wanted to cry.”
On defending her title in her hometown at Payback:
“I’m really excited because I have watched WWE live events and Raw and Smackdown inside the arena where we are wrestling on Sunday. I kind of just grew up there, and it’s going to be so cool to be able to walk down the ramp and now have my family and friends watch me as the champion.”
On the history she and Sasha Banks made in NXT:
“We were both really emotional during all of it. That Brooklyn match won match of the year actually for NXT, and it was voted on by the fans so that was a huge accomplishment, and we still get questions about that match…The other day we even said it’s so crazy that we had that match, and that it had such an impact that years from now we can look back and just be proud of that one match if not anything else.”
On the state of the Women’s Revolution:
“We are kind of still building each other on both Raw and Smackdown, but it’s definitely taken huge leaps and bounds where Sasha and Charlotte were able to main event PPVs like Hell In A Cell and first ever matches and do all this stuff…It’s taken huge steps, but obviously we all want the number one goal to be main eventing Wrestlemania. We are still working towards that, there’s always more work to be done, but I am so happy and proud to see how far it’s come.
On Dusty Rhodes’ impact on her career:
“When I first got to FCW…I was going nowhere. I had no personality, no character. He put me in extra promo classes with like 5 other people, and this was aside from the promo class that we already had to do because he knew I needed work…I would cry in front of the camera, but he would calm me down, and just say talk from your heart, talk from your heart, be who you are, and I didn’t think that was good enough, but he told me it was. So I kept going with who I was, and it kind of formed into what it is now…He just really found that something special inside you that you didn’t even knew that you had.”
