Bayley gives high praise to Charlotte, talks about her dream match and being a role model

Former NXT Women’s Champion Bayley spoke with to promote the upcoming NXT UK tour that takes place in June. Here are the highlights.

On Charlotte’s current run as Women’s Champion:

I think she’s doing an amazing job, it’s been really cool to watch her grow because I was in FCW for her first match and NXT TV for her first match with her dad in her corner, so to see what happened last night and how far she’s come to be able to be like, ‘I don’t need you anymore’, and knowing she’s gonna be on her own now, I’m excited to see what her next move will be. I think she’s doing a really great job, she’s been put in this position to carry on her legacy and name, I know it’s so much pressure but she’s doing a great job. If I were to make it up to the main roster sometime soon I think she’d be a perfect person to target!

On who she wants to work with on the main roster:

Nattie is one of them. I’ve had plenty of matches with her but I’ve only been able to team with her, I’ve never been able to have a match one-on-one against her. That’s one of the matches I’ve always wanted and she’s kind of been saying the same thing for a while since she was in NXT for a little bit. I remember watching one of her matches from the independents when she was like, an ECCW Canadian SuperGirls Champion against Ivory. One day I wanna have at least one match against her.

Nikki Bella as well, when she comes back from her surgery and everything. She’s the longest reigning Divas Champion, so I feel like she’s someone I can learn from. I know we would have a lot of fun in a match together.

On being a role model for the younger fans:

I wouldn’t say pressure, I think it’s really humbling that kids are so involved in my career and just watching kid’s faces, when I watch my matches back and see little kids jump around, it’s just insane. One of the coolest things is the parents that thank me or the parents of an eight-year-old girl who thank me for being a role model, then I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh I better not mess this up!’ I guess that’s where the pressure comes, it’s like, ‘Yeah, I’ll take care of them!’ I know how important wrestling was to me as a kid and how it sculpted the way I went for my dreams and things that I did in life, the way I dressed and the way I acted towards people and, it had a huge influence on me so, I always remember that and know that no matter what, even when I’m out of the ring I always have to present myself in a certain way. It’s kind of how I am already so it’s not like I have to put on a show for the kids or anything. It’s been really cool.

Bayley also talked about WWE dropping the term “Diva” and her run as NXT Women’s Champion. You can read the entire interview here.
