NXT Women's Champion Bayley Talks On Possibly Being Called Up To Main WWE Roster
Posted By: Ben Kerin on Nov 30, 2015
WWE NXT Women’s Champion Bayley recently spoke with Martin Hines of The Independent in the UK.
MH: There was also the case with Eva Marie where the fans were very rude to her on NXT, beyond the point of treating a heel character with disdain. Do you think the fans respect all talent?
“I think fans are like that all over the world. We’re in the public eye and people are going to criticise no matter what and say what they want to say about us. If they want to boo Eva then that’s great, she can have more to feed off. I don’t know if it’s a personal thing where they don’t really respect her, but she’s doing her job.”
MH: How has life changed for you personally since you finally became NXT Women’s Champion?
“I’ve noticed a change in things like doing more interviews and more people wanting to talk to me because i’m the champion. I’m at the forefront of the NXT women’s division and it’s really humbling to think that I’m not just a part of this new era, but that I’m the leader of it.
Even at the WWE Performance Center, I’ve noticed a lot of people coming to me for advice, and I take a leadership role now as the champion and as somebody who has been in the locker room the longest. It’s a huge responsibility to work with these newer girls and try to help them, while also keeping the division strong and the same thing that the NXT fans fell in love with. It’s a challenge and it’s a lot of fun, so I’m very proud to be a part of it.”
MH: Although you’re very successful in NXT, you must look at your friends and former foes who are now on the main WWE roster and want to be involved in that mix?
“I definitely want to be a part of it but I’m not in any rush right now. NXT is so huge and we’re already doing something very special here, so if I was on the main roster right now I’d feel that I was missing out with what’s going on in NXT.
We have Asuka, Nia Jax, Alexa Bliss, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, Carmella and all these girls who are just waiting to change the division even more than it already has. They’re going to take it to a different level so selfishly I still want to be part of that.
I’m glad I still get to be here and experience it with them but ultimately I want to join Sasha Banks, Charlotte and Becky Lynch in WWE. What they’re doing right now is amazing and I know how much it means to them. I’m super proud of them and everything they’re going through to change women’s wrestling.”
