Bayley spoke with NBC Sports before her upcoming WWE Raw Women's Championship match at WrestleMania 33. Here are some of the highlights:
"I've thought about that so many times. Even when I was a kid (laughs). When she was having matches with Lita, I was like I want to have matches with Stephanie one day. That's one of my dream matches to be honest."
"He told me that he watches and said you're the champion so you must be doing something right. I was like, yeah I guess so. I didn't want to take up too much of his time. He said that he really enjoys watching. I hope he wasn't just saying that to be nice though."
Being the last of the "Four Horsewomen" to make the main roster, needing more time in development:
"Yeah, now looking back I definitely did. At the time obviously I was like what about me? I'm ready, let's go! I wanted to do everything that they did. Now looking back, I think that has been the most important year of my career. I look back and think I wasn't ready. I was so dependent on them throughout my years in NXT. If something went wrong, I always had them, but the year without them was all on me. The whole division relied on me, everybody came to me for advice. If something went wrong, it was my fault. I really needed that leadership to build confidence in myself. In the future if I'm the leader for the locker room in WWE, I know that I can handle it. I was able to work with girls that have never been in a wrestling ring with before, girls who were just getting started, and girls who have been doing it forever like Asuka. It was the most important year and maybe one of the most fun years I've had."
