Current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley was a recent guest on the Sky Sports Lock Up podcast. She spoke about her evolution as a character, having recently turned heel with a new look and attitude that saw her recapture the championship.
During the interview, Bayley commented on the rumors and speculation that she and former tag team partner Sasha Banks had a “tantrum” backstage at this year’s WrestleMania.
“We read all the stupid rumors and it’s ridiculous,” she stated. “There’s no proof of it and it’s people just spreading these rumors because they want to talk, they want something to start up. We literally watched the main event in person by the hard cam and enjoyed the women stealing the show.”
She added, “We’re professionals and we love this more than anyone can imagine, more than anyone else in that locker room,” Bayley said.
Rumors had been rife that both women were deeply unhappy with WWE’s decision for them to drop the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. They were allegedly promised a long title run to legitimize the belts, but this did not happen. They held the championships for 49 days, losing them to The IIconics during a Fatal Four-Way tag team match at WrestleMania 35.
