Bayley says WWE's women's division has a bright future, considering the talented group of performers who are currently honing their craft in NXT.
During an appearance on the September 7 edition of WWE's The Bump, Bayley was asked about the NXT women's division. She highlighted the match between Roxanne Perez and Meiko Satomura and shared her belief that the future is in good hands.
“It’s crazy going back and just seeing all of the girls that are there that are so young. We just watched Roxanne and Meiko’s match right before the show. I was saying how good she is for being so young, and I’ve told her and Cora [Jade] this multiple times, like I can’t even being here, at your age, at 21 and having these matches with someone like Meiko, who, I think they mentioned on commentary, was in WCW before she was even born, before Roxanne was born. So that match was just awesome to watch. I know that the future’s in good hands with someone like her there and Meiko being there to help guide," Bayley said.
She also took the opportunity to point out that Damage CTRL is a remarkable trio, given their combined experience.
“We’re incredible. I’m sure there’s little girls out there that want to be Damage CTRL, just like us. IYO is saying there’s 45 years of experience between all three of us, so you guys have a long way to go," she said.
