Bayley heaps praise onto Ronda Rousey and also talks about goal of women headlining WrestleMania.
The current WWE Women's Tag Team Champions Bayley and Sasha Banks are heading into their first pay-per-view title defense this Sunday at Fastlane where they'll defend their belts against Nia Jax and Tamina. Banks and Bayley have made the rounds on the media circuit over the past few days with the announcement of WrestleMania 36 taking place in Tampa Bay, Florida in 2020 and doing promotional work for Fastlane.
The current RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey was the talk of the wrestling world when she released a video on her YouTube channel following Monday's RAW in Philadelphia in-which she did her usual recap of what occurred on the show and Ronda went on a rant about wrestling being scripted and none of the women in the locker room being able to touch her. Former RAW Women's Champion Bayley did not comment on Ronda's recent remarks but she kept her thoughts about Ronda on an in-ring basis while speaking with 'Newshub'. Bayley stated that her experience working with Ronda has been what she thought it was going to be and Ronda is not the best in the ring, but she is working towards becoming the best.
"Working with Ronda was very different. It was what I expected - competitive and hard hitting. She is a different athlete - a complete, elite athlete and I'm really glad I had that much with her. She has done so much for the women's division. She has brought a lot of new eyes and she has shown how tough we are. She is not the best but she is working hard to be the best." Bayley said.
Bayley also spoke about the possibility of women main-eventing WrestleMania 35. She cleared up that when she and Sasha Banks said it in interviews, it was not necessarily about themselves closing "The Show Of Shows", but women in general headlining WWE's biggest event of the year.
"The thought about us women being in the main event of WrestleMania wasn't really an individual thought," Bayley said. "There was more [to] the meaning behind it that it is something so special and it will mean a lot. As a roster, we have done so much to get to this point that it will be so meaningful for the fans."
The feud between Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey will intensify this Sunday at Fastlane when Becky and Charlotte meet one-on-one to determine if the RAW Women's Championship match at WrestleMania 35 will be a Triple-Threat or a singles match.
