WWE Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair has praised Bayley, arguing that she doesn’t get enough credit as a performer.
Belair notably feuded with Bayley following the Role Model’s return to the company in July 2022, with Bayley challenging for Belair’s gold at Extreme Rules and Crown Jewel.
Speaking on the Out Of Character podcast, Belair recalled their Crown Jewel Last Man Standing bout, and how Bayley’s creative mind helped them plan spots.
Believing that Bayley is still underrated, Belair said:
“I love Bayley. I feel like she’s one of the Four Horsewomen that doesn’t get as much credit as she should. She does so much that’s not for herself.
“Anybody that she steps in the ring with, she brings the best out of them and that’s what she did for me. I remember our Last Woman Standing match in particular.
“I was watching a lot of other Last Woman, Last Man Standing matches and you have your table spots and you have your ladder spots and your chair spots.
“We just wanted to make it as creative as possible and different. We’ve always been able to do that because Bayley is amazing in the ring physically, but when it comes to mentally, her creative mind is so amazing.
“We were able to create some amazing and iconic moments in that Last Woman Standing match like the golf cart. Like, we’re in Saudi Arabia and there’s women driving golf carts.
“That doesn’t happen all the time. It was really cool to create these fun and unique moments for these matches. The ladder match as well, that was our goal. Bayley is one of my favorite competitors to go up against.”
On the February 13 edition of Raw, Belair defeated Bayley and Becky Lynch in a triple threat match to keep both competitors out of this weekend’s #1 contenders Elimination Chamber match.
