Bayley says Indi Hartwell has endless potential.
The two women formed a bond during Bayley's time away from the ring after she tore her ACL, as they spent a lot of time training together. "The Role Model" has since returned to WWE TV, and Hartwell remains a member of the NXT roster.
During an appearance on Casual Conversations with The Classic, Bayley was asked to name some NXT stars that she has her eye on, and she named Hartwell.
“Indi Hartwell is gonna be really mad if I give a big list of people because I’d just say everyone’s good, which I don’t. I see these things. But first I will say Indi. She’s the one that helped me get back into ring shape. She spent countless hours with me after her training. She did training, then she did promo class, then she did weight training, and she would still come and train with me afterwards, so she knows I can’t thank her enough for spending that time with me. We were able to learn from each other and bond as friends as well. I think she has endless potential. She has such a great on-screen character. Fans love her, she’s super athletic, and she just has so much potential," Bayley said.
The former champion also pointed to Jacy Jayne, Roxanne Perez, and Cora Jade as some young superstars who have impressed her.
"I’m a huge fan of Jacy Jayne from Toxic Attraction. There’s just something about her, you know. I don’t know how to explain it, something about her that’s very intriguing. She’s really good, charismatic. Roxanne Perez and Cora Jade, those were like my group of girls that just reminded me of myself in NXT and how bad they want it and how badly they want to be successful and do their best for women’s wrestling," she said.
Bayley recently complimented Perez and stated that the future is in good hands with NXT's women's division. You can check out her comments here.
