Unhesitantly, Baker took the names of Sasha Banks and Bayley from WWE. She credits them for laying the groundwork for women wrestlers of the present day. Her words were,

“Oh, speaking of the devil [Baker referring to a previous comment about her hugging Izzy at the Double Or Nothing media scrum], probably Bayley or Sasha [Banks]. It’d have to be one of them because those are two of my role models that I watched when I was first training to be a wrestler, so that’s something — but I mean that’s five years ago so that’s when I was training, they were main-eventing NXT TakeOver so that was when the tides were turning, they kind of paved the wave for my generation of wrestling even though they’re still my generation, they came before me.” (H/t PostWrestling for transcriptions)

Surprisingly, Baker clarified it was the best thing that ever happened to her. She still got to stay on TV and do promos and video packages. So eventually, the worst injury became the best thing for her career, in her opinion.
