Former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Bayley has recently addressed the slow build for her feud with Sasha Banks.
Bayley is a loveable babyface that found her spotlight while in WWE’s developmental brand in Orlando, Florida, NXT. The sports entertainment company pushed her as a top babyface in the NXT women’s division after several talents were called up to the main roster such as Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch, Paige, Sasha Banks, Nia Jax and others. She is an underdog and resembles an average person.
The company pushed her to the moon, and she quickly won the NXT Women’s Title. She held the title for a long time before she was called up to the main roster.
However, when she was called up to the main roster and placed on the Raw, Vince McMahon did not put her in the same position as she was placed in NXT. That has changed as she is a more prominent talent on the main roster.
Bayley recently did an interview with SkySports.com and during that interview, she talked about her feud with Banks and if it could lead to them wrestling each other at this year’s SummerSlam event as it has been a slow build.
“When I was a kid watching wrestling that’s kind of how it was. You had these long feuds and storylines and you just got more and more interested and you wanted to see where it was going to go. You wanted to see the big blow-off match and I like that stuff because that’s what I grew up watching. There are so many people on the roster, there’s so much going on and there’s so much content that we sometimes rush through things so maybe that’s what we get used to and what we’re expecting. I’m pretty happy with it. I’m a fan still but I’m not a viewer so perhaps I see it differently but I really enjoy what’s going on. It’s fun and I think it’s going well.”
Bayley continued, “Any time I get to wrestle Sasha, I always want to do it. For SummerSlam to be in that building, I don’t know if I would be able to hold my tears back, but I’d love to do it. That’s a goal. Hopefully we can do it.”
