Becky Lynch stoked the flames ahead of WrestleMania 37, teasing on social media that she was going to return at night one of the event.
Fans immediately connected Becky with Bayley, who was without a match at WrestleMania 37, but figured to be involved in some way given her presence on WWE television during the pandemic era.
Night one came and went without an appearance by "The Man." Bayley was involved at both nights of WrestleMania 37, but fans were left disappointed when she was confronted by Nikki & Brie Bella at night two of the event.
Speaking to Rick Ucchino of Sportskeeda, Bayley commented on the Becky Lynch return rumors.
"I think it was wishful thinking and people ready to see Becky back and ready to see me get my butt-kicked, I guess. It's not gonna happen because she didn't come back, suckers. She's too busy being a mom," she said, playing up her character. "I'm sure it'll happen at some time. We both have some time left and we both have a lot of things we want to do. I'm sure she has a list of things she wants to do. The last time I think we were in the ring together may have been when I beat her up with a chair. I'm sure she's ready to get her hands on me and I'll be ready because I've been doing a lot since she's been gone. This is consistent Bayley, no time off for me. I've been making moves, Becky Lynch. She better start [at the bottom]. I know she 'gave up' her championship, but that doesn't mean she'll return and be right back in that picture. She better start at the very bottom."
It's been just over a year since Lynch has been on WWE television as she announced her pregnancy on the May 11, 2020 episode of WWE Raw, relinquishing the Raw Women's Championship to Asuka.
Bayley will attempt to regain the SmackDown Women's Championship at WrestleMania Backlash when she faces Bianca Belair.
