– While discussing Bayley’s standing in WWE on Wrestling Observer Radio on Thursday, Dave Meltzer said the company has ‘given up’ on pushing the former Raw Women’s Champion as a top female competitor.
“They have already given up on her. And they’ve given up on her a long long time ago,” Meltzer said.
“When they’re gonna protect Mickie James over you when Mickie James was brought in to be a filler to lose on the roster, that just tells you. The dice has been cast with her already.”
This is in reference to Bayley taking the pin in a Six-Woman Tag Team Match against Absolution on Raw on Christmas Day.

“I am excited to be a part of history. The cherry on top for this Canadian girl would be to carry on the excellence of the Hart family members who came before me and to win the Royal Rumble and get my shot at being a two-time SmackDown Women’s Champion.
