Bayley Talks FTR Helping Her Understand How Tag Team Wrestling Works


In eight years time, Bayley has surpassed expectations in WWE. Whether it was turning into the first-ever girls’s Grand Slam Champion, to jumpstarting the ladies’s tag staff division by turning into its inaugural and two-time champion with Sasha Banks, or holding down the corporate throughout uncharted instances by creating a brand new type of leisure through the pandemic/ThunderDome period, “The Role Model” guarantees there’s lots left within the tank relating to shattering the glass ceiling in not simply girls’s wrestling however in WWE.

“I still have so much that I want to do,” Bayley acknowledged on Oral Sessions with Renee Paquette. “So, I acquired signed once I was 23. I’ve been right here for at the very least eight years now. My first eight days there, I assumed I wasn’t going to final trigger I used to be homesick already. It was approach too arduous, and it wasn’t what I assumed it was going to be. It simply felt bizarre. Like, I wasn’t connecting to it.


“Now, I’ve been here for eight years, and I have been able to literally do everything and more than I ever wanted to do. But there’s still so much that I feel like I need to do to feel complete with everything here, especially starting a new character. It feels like I just started over.”

Speaking additional about her two-time tag staff title run with Banks, Bayley believes WWE can do extra and danger extra for the ladies’s tag staff division.

“I still feel like there’s so much more they can do with the tag division,” she acknowledged. “We had so much fun in our second run because that was what we really wanted to do, and I wish it could have gone on longer – just to be a couple of idiots on every single show. I wish we could have done NXT and Raw more. That was how we wanted the tag titles to be represented. Now, they have them in NXT. It’s awesome. We were on house shows every week, and we’d get thrown in tag matches just to get everyone on the show. We just did a tag match, but we never learned the psychology of tag team wrestling.”


Thanks to AEW’s dominant tag staff FTR (fka as The Revival) Bayley and Banks grasped a deeper understanding of how tag staff wrestling labored, which might rub off all through their title reigns.

“We never really le arned the psychology of tag team wrestling, and once we did that like we sat down with Dax [Wheeler] and Cash [Harwood] – so hard to call them that now. Once we sat and learned from them and just watching their matches, I really fell in love with it,” she talked about. “So it made me need to struggle for [the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship] much more. It additionally offers one thing for all the women to do as a result of you may’t at all times go after the ladies’s titles.


“[FTR] would make us watch Arn [Anderson] and Tully [Blanchard] all the time. I’d be like, ‘Hey, can I have a match that I should study?’ Just for the basis of the storytelling. So you can tell by watching a tag match that you get beat up for a long time, and you’re just working for that big tag because you wanna see all the fireworks happen and all that stuff. But they would teach us how much you can tease that and make the people anticipate it or think that it’s gonna happen. Or make it happen, but then you, all the fireworks start, and then something happens to where it’s like, ‘Oh no, it’s not the end of the match? I thought it was.’”
