Bayley has taken WWE to task on social media for re-using a recently released Superstar’s gimmick with Austin Theory.
After arriving on Monday Night Raw as part of the WWE Draft, Austin Theory has begun to make quite the name for himself. The young star has clashed with the likes of Jeff Hardy, Rey Mysterio and even WWE Champion Big E. Even his egg-stealing shenanigans at Survivor Series couldn’t slow his momentum with Vince McMahon mentoring the former NXT Superstar on Raw.
On the most recent episode of the show, Theory distracted Finn Balor while he was teaming with Damian Priest causing the team to lose against The Dirty Dawgs. With Balor laid out on the canvas, Theory got in the ring to take his customary selfie.
WWE then tweeted out a shot of Theory taking the picture, with the caption, “Now that’s a pretty picture.”
However, Bayley was quick to call out the post saying that “There’s only one prince pretty and you know it!!!!!!!!!!!!”
There’s only one prince pretty and you know it!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Prince pretty” being a reference to recently released Superstar Tyler Breeze. During his popular run in NXT, Breeze would take selfies during his entrance and sometimes during his matches.
Again posting on social media, Bayley has now claimed that she is “best friends” with Theory.
Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has been out of action since July after suffering a torn ACL while training. At the time it was expected that the star would miss around nine months of action. Speaking on Instagram Live, Bayley recently gave an update on her recovery, commenting that he knee was doing great.
“Anyway, people are asking how my knee is. So, my knee is doing great, my leg’s doing great, my ankle’s doing great, my shin is doing great, my hip is doing great, my mind is doing great… so, I mean it’s only a matter of time.”
The former NXT Superstar later added that she would be “back soon” although declined to offer a specific date.
