Tiffany Stratton showed up out of nowhere on the most recent episode of SmackDown to interfere in Bayley and Naomi’s match for the WWE Women’s Championship. She delivered the prettiest moonsault to the two women simultaneously. As expected, The Role Model did not take this too kindly. 


She let her thoughts be known by taking to social media after SmackDown went off the air. Surprisingly, the WWE Women’s Champion was impressed by the actions of Buff Barbie. The 34-year-old added that she likely would have done the same thing had she been in Stratton’s shoes. 

Additionally, she liked that the former gymnast had made such a “ballsy move.” Bayley added that this was only going to make the women’s division stronger in the WWE. However, these statements did not imply that the champion was going to let her actions pass. 

The WWE Women’s Champion was not afraid after the 24-year-old threatened to come after her title. The Role Model let Tiffany Stratton know that she was now in her sights. Furthermore, she was done for, and Bayley would be seeing her in the future. 

I kinda like that you made such a ballsy move - those kind of things will only make this division stronger.

Tiffany Stratton has solidified herself as a main event talent within just two months of her main roster debut. The actions that took place on SmackDown clearly indicate that the Center of the Universe is going to be in a major feud for the upcoming months. With all signs pointing towards Bayley vs. Stratton at Backlash, fans cannot wait to see how this story is going to unfold. 

Bayley comments on the rise of Damage CTRL

Bayley’s story with Damage CTRL culminated on the WrestleMania XL weekend. The Role Model defeated her protege, Iyo Sky, for the WWE Women’s Championship in the co-main event of Night 2. At the WrestleMania post-show press conference, she was asked about her thoughts on the rise of the female faction.

The 35-year-old mentioned that once the group started trusting each other, they grew much closer as friends. Moreover, they started functioning better as a team. After the Genius of the Sky won the WWE Women’s Championship at SummerSlam, they felt on top of the world.

The new champion added that Sky’s successful cash-in reminded her that fans really cared about the group. Bayley was also elated that Damage CTRL had plenty of representation on both nights of Wrestlemania XL. Despite joking about how they lost on both nights, she felt that it was a “major win for the performers.”
