Bayley talks about Sasha Banks and Naomi walking the runway during New York Fashion Week.
On Monday, May 16, 2022, Sasha Banks and Naomi walked out on WWE in the middle of an episode of Monday Night Raw. Since then, both women have been focusing on their lives outside of the wrestling ring. Most notably, they both walked the runway during New York Fashion Week.
One member of their WWE family that was there to support them was Bayley. Both Sasha and Naomi took to social media to reflect on Bayley supporting them.
Your friendship has never wavered that means everything to me love you DING DONG thank you for being here for us -- @itsBayleyWWE (just know you can still get swung on tho --) @SashaBanksWWE #NYFW pic.twitter.com/8Mwha03mfe— Trinity Fatu (@NaomiWWE) September 10, 2022
Speaking during a new interview with the In The Kliq podcast, Bayley says she still does not feel comfortable weighing in on the situation that took them away from WWE television because she was not there when it happened and even if she was, she doesn't feel like she could adequately explain whatever Sasha and Naomi were feeling.
“It's hard to give any thoughts since I wasn't personally there, you know, and no matter even if I was there, no one's going to understand their mindset, or minds, or understand whatever happened besides Sasha and Naomi, so, it's hard for me to give any type of insight on that because I'm not really sure.
"All I know is that what they're doing now is killing it. I've been able to spend some time with them and they’re freakin — they’re models. They're actresses or singers. They're amazing. Anywhere they go, no matter what they do, I support them. They're going to take over everywhere, take over the world, whatever they want to do, they're going to do great,” she said.
Talking about New York Fashion Week, Bayley says that she felt like a proud mom watching them walk the runway.
“I was so nervous for them. I felt like a mom or something. I've watched them win the Women's Tag Team Titles at WrestleMania. But it felt different watching them come out on that runway for such a big deal and something that they both really wanted to do and felt passionate about. Super proud of them, and it was so fun. I had a great time.”
As for whether or not Bayley looks forward to her former Tag Team Championship partner and Naomi returning to the ring, she says that they might want to stick to the runway because once they return to wrestling, it will be strictly business.
“If they ever do return, I'm just going to kick their ass. They might be scared to come back for me. You might want to stay on the runway.”
Sasha Banks described her own nerves while walking the runway for New York Fashion Week, saying it felt like her first wrestling match all over again. Read more here.
