Bayley: The Women On The Main Roster Were Jealous Of How Much Time We Got On NXT

Before Stephanie McMahon started the women's revolution in July 2015, Triple H had elevated the women to new heights in NXT. The NXT Women's Title match would often be the co-main event of TakeOver and would be the second-longest match on the show.

Appearing on the Swerve City Podcast, Bayley discussed how much freedom the women had in NXT and why some on the main roster were jealous.

"Triple H let us do whatever, our coaches let us do whatever. They were loving that we were going all out every single night. Not just on TakeOvers or TVs. It was so hard not to. These fans were ready for it and hungry for women's wrestling to be as awesome as they knew it could be. Natalya would always talk about, 'you get so much time and opportunity to tell these stories.' You could tell some of the girls on Raw and SmackDown were jealous and being like, 'damn. You guys get that time and that's why fans enjoy it.' Yeah, we do, I don't really know what to tell you, I'm sorry. It's not like they were mad at us, they were jealous of it. It took a long time, but once it started catching on, obviously it wasn't just us four, but we were a thing and we relied on each other a lot," she said.

Elsewhere on the podcast, Bayley discussed how the Four Horsewomen pushed each other through friendly competition. You can find her full comments by clicking here.
