Bayley wants Damage CTRL to share the ring with three WWE Hall of Famers, hoping to “get them out of here.”
Damage CTRL leader Bayley is no stranger to huge moments inside the squared circle. One of these moments came at this year’s SummerSlam, when she made her return from injury after over a year off television and confronted Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.
She didn’t come alone, however, and shocked the world when she revealed that she had Dakota Kai and IYO SKY (previously known as Io Shirai) on her side. Kai had been released from WWE the previous May, and SKY was said to be on her way out of the company. Their returns were the first in a long line that showed Triple H was making major changes after taking over creative control in the wake of Vince McMahon’s retirement.
The faction, now known as Damage CTRL, has been a dominant force on Raw, and last week saw Dakota Kai and IYO SKY defeat Raquel Rodriguez and Aliyah for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.
Speaking to Casual Conversations ahead of WWE’s return to her hometown of San Jose, CA, Bayley said there are three WWE Hall of Famers in particular she’d like her crew to get rid of as they continue to assert dominance in the company.
“Lita, Trish [Stratus], and Beth Phoenix. Get them out of here. This is our place. Don’t come back.”
The Role Model has shared the ring with Trish Stratus and Lita before, teaming with them as well as Sasha Banks and Natlya to take on the team of the Riott Squad, Mickie James, and Alicia Fox at WWE Evolution in 2018.
On the most recent episode of Raw, Bayley issued another challenge and made it clear that she wants to face Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship at Extreme Rules.
