Kevin Owens Says Bayley Is The Best Performer In The ThunderDome Era

Kevin Owens has strongly hinted at who his pick would be for the greatest WWE performer of the ThunderDome era on social media.

WWE on FOX had tweeted asking simply who the greatest performer of the ThunderDome era had been, to which Kevin Owens emphatically replied:


Bayley of course is the host of her own talk show segment on SmackDown called ‘Ding Dong, Hello’ where she has talked up or talked down some of the finest competitors on WWE’s blue brand.

The two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion entered the pandemic era as exactly that, SmackDown Women’s Champion. She successfully defended her title at the closed-set WrestleMania 36 before again retaining her title at Money In The Bank.

At SummerSlam 2020, Bayley defended her title once again successfully in the WWE ThunderDome against Asuka. Shortly after this, Bayley and Sasha Banks lost the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles and Bayley turned on her former friend. Banks then defeated Bayley for her title at Hell In A Cell after the ‘Role Model’ had held the belt for 380 days.

This is when that ‘Role Model’ character came to the fore for Bayley and she began loudly complaining about SmackDown commentator Michael Cole. Bayley even had the announcer’s name shaved into the back of her head for the Royal Rumble.

Although Bayley played no part in the ring at WrestleMania 37 which was the first show WWE held in front of live fans for over a year, she stole the show with her interactions with WWE hosts Titus O’Neill and Hulk Hogan. Bayley also tried to get ‘Too Sweet’ with the nWo but they rebuffed the hand gesture and left the WWE Grand Slam winner hanging.

More recently Bayley challenged SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair for her title. At WrestleMania Backlash, Belair overcame the ‘Role Model’ to retain.
