Jacy Jayne: I Was Given Shawn Michaels' Blessing To Re-Create History With Toxic Attraction Split

Jacy Jayne details some behind-the-scenes information on the Toxic Attraction split and how much she was told going into the Ding Dong Hello segment on February 7.

Jacy Jayne is now on her own as she officially severed ties with Gigi Dolin on February 7 when the two former WWE NXT Women's Tag Team Champions were featured on Bayley's first Ding Dong Hello segment in NXT.

By the end of the segment, Jayne dropped Dolin with a Superkick and ran her head into the prop door on the set of the talk show. This segment is very similar to the split of The Rockers that launched the singles career of Shawn Michaels in 1992.

During an appearance on Busted Open Radio, Jayne revealed that not much was known going into the day of the split about what they would be doing, but she was honored to be given Shawn Michaels' blessing to put her own spin on one of his most iconic moments.

"I actually didn't really know much going into that day, they were kind of very hush-hush about everything happening," she said. "All I really knew was that was going to be on Ding Dong Hello. So that's a lot of pressure having Bayley come back. It was the first time she even had that show in like two years. It was also the first time it was ever in front of a live audience because that was always done during the pandemic era. So I feel like there was a lot of pressure going into that alone.

"Then, kind of getting Shawn's blessing to re-do some history there. That was a big deal for me. I didn't want to mess it up. I didn't want to screw up. I wanted to make a memory," she continued. "I think everybody knew Toxic Attraction was going to explode soon, but to make it memorable, we had to go big. So we wanted it to be vicious. We wanted it to be memorable. We wanted people to talk about it, not just something like 'Oh, that was a good segment. Yeah, whatever. Now they're by themselves.' Like, no, we want people to remember this and be like, 'Oh, this is a new coming for two new superstars on a solo route.'"

Jayne is slated to appear on the February 14 episode of WWE NXT to further explain her betrayal. Fans can check out the full card for the event here.
