Naomi returned with a whole new glow and Bayley, the SmackDown Women's Champion, certainly felt every last bit of it.
Bayley entered the ring on the January 31 episode of SmackDown to brag about her victory over Lacey Evans at the 2020 Royal Rumble. then, she went on to say that she had already dispatched of the blue Brands best women and challenged women’s Royal Rumble winner, Charlotte Flair, to come out and challenge her for a match at WrestleMania because, in the mind of the champion, it was a given that was the decision that Flair would make.
Instead, out came a returning Naomi, complete with a revamped entrance that included strobe lighting and an LED head accessory.
Wasting no time getting to the point, Naomi said that she was not going to sit by and listen to the bragging of the champion and made a point to say that Bayley had never defeated her. Bayley tried to get the jump on Naomi but instead, wound up eating a face full of foot courtesy of Naomi hitting a springboard roundhouse kick.
It looks like Bayley may have a very good idea of who her next challenger is. Recently, however, she was quoted as the only person she would want to face on team blue was her best friend, Sasha Banks. Learn more about that here.
