Bayley Comments On Having Issues On A Possible Heel Turn...
Updated: Aug 14
In a recent sit down with Steve Austin on his Podcast 'The Steve Austin Show' Former WWE RAW Women's Champion Bayley opened up to Austin, commenting that she has some reservations about a possible heel turn in the future. She spoke on when she was on the NXT Roster, that the formula was much simpler.
"With NXT I felt I could do anything. I knew exactly what they wanted and how they were going to react to me and my opponent, no matter who it was. I knew what they can do to get a reaction and what I can do to get sympathy or anything. But with this crowd I'm still kind of figuring them out with WWE.
I think it has a lot to do with, I don't know, in this day and age the crowds are... it's so different than back then and they all want to cheer for the wrong person or they're on their Twitter. That can mess with your head too, just reading tweets and people telling you this and you start to believe it. And you're like 'wait...' I've had to stay off Twitter before for a while because that can definitely mess with your head. I've seen it happen to people and I hear people talk about it. It shouldn't matter because we're doing our job and what we're told to do and what we love.
But I'm still kind of figuring them out. I feel right now I'm kind of in a weird spot with my career. So when I first came I felt like “Alright, I'm still from NXT.” I felt like I knew exactly what I was doing. But now I'm just... you know how we were talking a couple months ago and you were helping me out with matches and stuff and how I need to go about certain things, I'm still figuring it out. I'm at a weird spot right now."
Bayley is sure on how she'll do her eventual heel turn and she'll going to do it Eddie Guerrero Style.
"As far as wrestling and stuff, and him being amazing and being able to do it all, literally one of the guys that can do it all, I remember watching him -- this was like a couple years ago, so I was already here -- and I was watching his old matches in WCW when he was just a heel coming out with his hair soaking wet. He looked miserable!
You don't get that anymore out of heels being like coming out like they're completely miserable and that makes you like... “Gah, dude, if you don't want to be here just don't come then!” That's how I felt watching him. It's like, “Why are you even doing this if you don't even want to do it?”
And then he'd get into the ring and be so nasty and just have that look of like disgust and he was too good for it all. I don't know, it was something about that, like, I always told myself too if I were to ever be heel I want to make myself so miserable because that's one of the most hate-able things, I think."
