Re: Bayley

very generous of wwe to move her away from the steamroller over on raw

who's punching bag will she be on smackdown?

unless wwe is incredously going to do the correct thing by turning her heel & having her have a program with becky for the smackdown title (lol)
I do hope we get Bayley/Becky soon.

Becky/Bayley being the only 2 horsewomen that didn't have any feud/program sucks. We've seen Sasha against all, Charlotte against all, now we need those 2 to tie up everything. I actually wouldn't mind Becky dropping the SD title to Bayley.

For the life of me, I can't think of another wrestler in modern times who has had such a huge drop in popularity.
The pops were huge on her debut. Everyone loved Bailey.

It's not all WWE's fault though. Her weaknesses became extremely obvious way too quickly. But the program with Alexa did her zero favours, and was her real downfall. I think fans expected her to stand up against Alexa, but no, Bailey just took it and let Alexa bully her with no repercussions.

I really hope this is a new start. There is potential. They don't need her to turn heel or go through a huge character overhaul. Just give her a little more edge and authority. Like "I like to hug and smile, but push me to far and you'll se why I'm a former nxt and raw womens champ" kinda vibe.

Re: Bayley

Bayley as a heel I wouldn't think would be good. Does she really have the personality for it? It would be the typical "I didn't get enough support from you fans. I'm tired of being held back." approach and it would fall flat on its face because her mic. talk isn't one of her strong points.

Zayn seemed like he would be a career babyface too but he has proven that he can make the heel thing work. I just don't see it with Bayley.

Bayley vs. Becky would be fun and neither has to be set as a heel in order for it to happen.

Then if Bayley goes back to tag teaming, theres her BFF Carmella. I don't want to see Bayley go back to being barely used.

Re: Bayley

The premise for a Bayley heel turn is dumb. So because she got booed in Canada (which has happened before) means Bayley has to turn. She gets cheered everywhere else.

Bayley was popular among the nXt crowd.... yes the pops were huge, but they came with a caveat. Even she knows that... from an interview she did:

“When I made my debut, I had that weird one-off at Battleground where I was like Sasha’s partner,” Bayley said. “And that was an amazing night. It felt like everybody in the arena wanted her partner to be me, so I was like, ‘oh yeah, everybody knows who I am and I’m going to be fine when I finally get here, like, for good!’ Then, I had my official debut. That was the night after NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn.

“And Brooklyn is just… it was SummerSlam weekend, so it’s kind of like a WrestleMania weekend where there [are] fans from all over [the world] and it’s just a load of NXT fans from around Europe and all that and I got a great reception there and I was like, ‘yep, I’m good. Everybody knows Bayley’ blah, blah, blah. But then, it wasn’t until I was there a little bit longer and I had to get on the regular schedule doing house shows and going to TVs in different cities where I realized my reception wasn’t as good as my first two things that I did because not everybody knew me.

“And the NXT crowd, although it is amazing, and we do have great fans all over the world, it’s not as huge as the audience we have for WWE, so I’m still kind of like at the point where people know who I am and I might not be as cool as I was in little, smaller venues or, like, a smaller audience, but now I’m at that point where I feel like, ‘yeah, I’m WWE,’ but it did take a while. I think my head got a little too big when I was like, ‘yeah, everyone knows me!’ to when I’m like, ‘wait! No, they don’t.'”
Add that to the fact that she is horribly wooden in promos, and has an above average match every night, and this was bound to happen

To ask for a change in her character is to ask for her to be better at something she has not gotten any better at.

I hope she revitalizes herself on SmackDown, because she is becoming more and more stale each day

Re: Bayley


Im not that big of a fan of The IIconics, cant lie though i did enjoy this. Especially Peyton's "oww ahh!"

Screw you WWE for taking one of my favorite chants ever and using it at Bayley's expense. Even though I did enjoy it lol. Being away from Sasha and going to SD could turn out good for Bayley. Gets her away from, arevthey gonna feud or not, there friends there not forends there friends again, are they possibly lesbians, storyline and gives her something fresh to work with.

Re: Bayley

Just stick her in some skimpy gear. That'd get her over.

Bayley doesn't need to take the "not enough fan support" route for a heel turn. Just have her attack neckbeards for wanting hugs that were never meant for them. She can still have positive interactions with her younger fanbase while chastising the grown men wearing Bayley merch.

Re: Bayley

Izzy?

Who's that?

Little girl, which was a big Bayley fan at NXT. They integrated her into a match, therefore many people know her. It is on the network. Bayley and Sasha also mentioned her when going to NXT again for the tag team belts.

Re: Bayley

I don't

Have any pics?
Watch from minute 52. Little girl at the corner, Sasha yells at her. Later Sasha steals the hair ribbon from her head and poses with it in the ring.

Re: Bayley

Izzy is a little girl who is a superfan of Bayley. At every NXT you can see Izzy always decked out in Bayley merch and had her hair in the same style as Bayley.

Bayley would bring Izzy into the ring to celebrate with her.

She was such a huge Bayley fan like Ger said they incorporated her into the Ironwoman match. When Sasha snatched Izzy hair clip or whatever it was Izzy burst into tears and Sasha mocked her crying lol damn Sasha was such a heel.

Re: Bayley

It's just another example of wwe taking someone that's over in NXT, not understanding why they are over and ruining them on the main roster.

That being said a lesbian angle with her and Sasha could have been a collosal draw :eek:wens3
