RAW Women’s Champion Bayley was recently interviewed by Fox Sports to promote her title defense against Sasha Banks and Nia Jax at next Sunday’s WrestleMania 33 pay-per-view. Below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On competing against Nia Jax: “It changes everything. I’m still getting used to it. When she came to NXT I was like ‘alright, this is a cool new challenge.’ I’ve never been in the ring with somebody like her. But I’m still – it’s been like two years – but I’m still learning how to actually approach her. Once you think you have one idea of how to do it… she’s just way too powerful. Our match on Monday, I was honestly worried about it being a no-DQ match. My neck still hurts, and it hurts to drive and to look the other way. It’s a challenge so I’m up for it. I’m building my muscle.”
On her favorite WrestleMania moment: “My favorite WrestleMania moment would actually be the first WrestleMania I ever went to, and that was at WrestleMania 30 in New Orleans. I’ve been a fan forever, but have never been able to go to an actual WrestleMania until I started working with the company. When I saw Daniel Bryan win the world title, that was the most incredible atmosphere, especially after Undertaker just losing his streak, which was such an awkward and weird feeling in the building. To feel the feeling of the fans once Daniel Bryan wins his title – it was… I can’t even explain it.”
