Bianca Belair has high praise for Bayley.
Throughout her career in WWE, Bianca Belair has had many great rivalries. While some fans may argue that Belair's greatest rival is Becky Lynch, other fans might give that title to Bayley, who has faced off with Belair in a televised singles capacity on seven different occasions since December 2020.
Even though they are bitter rivals on television, Belair has nothing but good things to say about the head honcho of Damage CTRL outside of the ring. In a new interview with the Out Of Character podcast, Belair noted that she thinks Bayley is one of the members of the Four Horsewomen that just doesn't get enough credit.
“I love Bayley. I feel like she’s one of the Four Horsewomen that doesn’t get as much credit as she should. She does so much that’s not for herself. Anybody that she steps in the ring with, she brings the best out of them and that’s what she did for me. I remember our Last Woman Standing match in particular. I was watching a lot of other Last Woman, Last Man Standing matches and you have your table spots and you have your ladder spots and your chair spots. We just wanted to make it as creative as possible and different. We’ve always been able to do that because Bayley is amazing in the ring physically, but when it comes to mentally, her creative mind is so amazing. We were able to create some amazing and iconic moments in that Last Woman Standing match like the golf cart. Like, we’re in Saudi Arabia and there’s women driving golf carts. That doesn’t happen all the time. It was really cool to create these fun and unique moments for these matches. The ladder match as well, that was our goal. Bayley is one of my favorite competitors to go up against.”
Belair has often credited Bayley in a similar manner in the past. Back in 2021, Belair called Bayley a legend in the making and praised her for changing her mentally. To learn more, click here.
