Bayley revealed she thought she was going to be better than her contemporaries.
“I thought I was always like super different [than them,] and I thought I was always going to be the one to outlast all of them and be the most consistent one.
Bayley had a phenomenal 2020 where she and Sasha Banks held the Women’s and Women’s Tag Team Titles simultaneously. However, 2021 has been far from generous for WWE’s resident heel.
As ‘The Role Model‘ tries to find her footing in the new year, she is getting involved in a lot of things. First, she had a rivalry with Sasha, but now she has shifted to ‘WWE’s EST’ Bianca Belair.
The tournament will start next week with the team of Toni Storm and Mercedes Martinez facing Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter. A fan suggested Carmella as Bayley’s partner and Bayley straight up rejected the idea.
It is great to see main roster stars mingling with NXT and taking an active interest in the classic tournament.
As Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch, and Bayley debuted, they became known as the ‘Four Horsewomen of WWE.’ However, Bayley revealed to Steve Austin on the Broken Skulls Sessions that she often felt like an outsider.
“I was kind of like the outcast because Sasha was very close with Charlotte, and they would travel together all the time, and then she got very close with Becky, and then they traveled together all the time,” said Bayley.
“But then Sasha and I started getting closer and closer. We were always super close, text all the time, but when it came to traveling and outside of that stuff, I was never like that with Charlotte or Becky.”
“I guess I just saw myself differently because I had a different style, I guess. And in my own head, I just had to keep believing that I’m the best one.”
She later realized her character held her back. But she eventually defeated her adversities and became one of the top stars in WWE.
