From the outside it may seem that Bayley has done it all in her WWE career.
Since debuting on NXT in 2013, Bayley has won all that there is to win in the WWE women’s division, often more than once.
During a new interview with Renee Paquette on her Oral Sessions podcast, Bayley reflected on how far she has come since making her debut. Commenting that she has achieved everything that she ever wanted to achieve.
“I still have so much I want to do, I got signed when I was 23. I’ve been here for at least eight years now. My first eight days there, I thought I wasn’t gonna last – I was like homesick already, it was way too hard, it wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. It just felt weird, I didn’t feel like I was connecting to it. Now I’ve been here eight years and I’ve been able to literally do everything and more that I’ve ever wanted to do.”
However, the host of “Ding, Dong! Hello” revealed that she is far from done. Setting her sights even higher for the next phase of her career.
“But there’s still so much I feel I’ve got to do to feel complete with everything here. Especially starting with this new character, it feels like I’ve just started over. I really want to make this talk-show thing awesome, I really want to make it bigger and be able to do that and be able to have like main event matches, even if it’s in the same night. I feel like I want to just be like the most well-rounded person that they have on the roster, I mean men and women, ‘cause I want to be able to be a champion and have main event matches, and do main event WrestleManias, and also be awesome as a talk-show host and such a different character – there’s a lot.”
One of the aspects of her new character that has received almost unanimous praise is her on going verbal sparring sessions with Michael Cole during her matches.
Elsewhere in her conversation with Paquette, the former SmackDown Women’s Champion detailed how that aspect of her character came about, explaining, “I started picking on him, and people seemed to like it.”
Bayley was also recently landed at number ten on WWE’s list of greatest ever female Superstars.
