The SmackDown Women’s Champion recently appeared on FOX 4 to hype an upcoming SmackDown live event. During her interview the host walked their audience through Bayley’s career evolution.

She explained what a heel turn is and then mentioned that Bayley used to be called “The Hugger.” This is something that she doesn’t do anymore.

Bayley said that “maybe for twenty bucks,” she’ll dish out a hug. She’s not going out in the crowd and giving away free hugs.

“No more, done. No… I mean if you wanna give me like twenty bucks I can hug you.”


The Royal Rumble marks the beginning of the road to WrestleMania. That event usually comes with an Access event complete with Superstar appearances. We’ll have to see if Bayley will keep that strict no hugging policy or if it will actually cost an extra twenty spot to hug The Hugger.
