NXT Women’s Champion Bayley recently spoke with the The Green Bay Press Gazette to promote this weekend’s WWE live event in Green Bay, Wisconsin and spoke about her character, what the NXT Women’s Championship means to her and her thoughts on going to the main WWE roster. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On her character:
“I tell people that it’s not even really a character, because I’m still such a huge fan. (The gimmick) just happened randomly in a promo class. I was making all these promos about how much I love so-and-so, it just became really fun for me. So Dusty (Rhodes) and the writers really pushed me and helped the character a lot.”
On what the title means to her:
“The NXT women’s title means a lot to me. It’s surreal when I open up my suitcase to put my gear on and I have the championship belt in there with the WWE logo on it. So that’s really cool. For me to defeat Sasha Banks to win it is one thing, and for me to be able to carry it with the roster we have right now is another thing.”
On going to WWE’s main roster:
“I’m not hesitant. It’s just that I’m very proud of NXT, and I’m so happy that I’m able to be a part of it. I watched NXT grow from 12 people to me winning the championship in front of 16,000 people. I love NXT because I obviously have an attachment to it, but I want to get up there (main roster) because that’s what I’ve wanted since I was 11.”
