Current WWE Raw Women’s champion Bayley is setting her sights on her very first WrestleMania in a few weeks, she told Ontario’s Kingston Whig-Standard that she is nervous:
"I’m very nervous. I’m nervous to impress people. I’m nervous to make sure that I can hold onto my title, I’m nervous to impress everyone in the back to make sure that this isn’t my last WrestleMania."
She went on to explain how she deals with this nervous energy:
"I’ve always taught myself whenever I have big matches, I’ll just use Takeovers for example, whenever I had a Takeover match, right before I went out, I was just a mess … so nervous. I’d tell myself, if you can’t do this, how are you going to do WrestleMania? That’s kind of how I got through every match. And every match was OK and I was fine. I’ve been waiting my whole career for this match and now is the time to prove to myself I was meant to be here."
Shawn Michaels revealed in an interview with Eric Bischoff on his podcast that he regularly attends the WWE Performance Center to work with the new talent there. There was a report some months ago that Michaels would be joining as the head coach, although that would require him to relocate himself and family to Florida. He told Bischoff:
“Yeah. I’ve been going down there on a fairly regular basis. It’s something that going forward I’d like to continue to do. I think we are sort of getting close to that finalization stage where I can say, ‘Yes! I am a regular at the performance center!’ (Laughs) I guess that’s a long answer but for the most part, yes. I’m down there on a pretty regular basis.”
Tickets went on sale today for NXT at the Download Fest in the U.K. from June 5-11. A number of names have already been confirmed to appear including; Alexander Wolfe, Nikki Cross, Eric Young, Killian Dain, Kassius Ohno, Bobby Roode, Asuka, Aleister Black and Tye Dillinger.
