Bayley says she doesn’t get it. She says this is confusing. Everybody has something to say about what went down last night. They didn’t see it coming. What didn’t you see coming? Her friendship with Sasha? Her sense of responsibility to the one person who had her back and has been through every struggle and triumph on the road to being champion? Sasha is her best friend. Bayley says she is trying to show you what type of champion she is, but with this division. She is trying to pick everyone up. Think about the kids.
Ever since she started doing all of this, she is trying to make you feel the way she felt as a kid. When she was a fan. She is in this ring as the hero and role model. She is trying to show your kids what it is like to be loyal. That is why she couldn’t turn her back on Sasha when things got rough. Bayley says she is doing everything she can to put this title and division on the map. You deserve a champion with the same amount of attention as Becky Lynch. Bayley says she will be that champion for a long time. That will happen at Clash of Champions when she beats the most selfish person on the roster, Charlotte Flair.
