Bayley was injured and out of action for well over a year, and fans simply did not know when she was going to return. At WWE SummerSlam, fans finally got their answer as she showed up with Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky. She also wanted to form the faction for years.
Following the conclusion of Bianca Belair vs Becky Lynch, Bayley’s music hit, and she walked out to the ring. She was then followed by Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky who introduced this new stable. They had a stare-down with Belair and Lynch as well.
They also beat up Becky Lynch on Monday Night RAW, as a way to write her off WWE television. While speaking on After The Bell, Bayley confirmed that she had pitched the faction to Triple H before. In fact, she’s been working to make the faction for years.
”This is something that I’ve wanted for a while, I would say a couple of years. (It’s) actually something that I’ve talked to (Triple H) about before.
Just wanting something different for the division and using girls that I think were either underutilized or that didn’t get that opportunity or didn’t get that spotlight. Just a way to evolve myself as in like many different variations of this faction or group that I wanted.
But as I got injured and got to spend more time really thinking about it, I knew that I wanted literally girls who haven’t had the opportunity (to be on) Raw or Smackdown or that haven’t been given an opportunity to feel what WrestleMania is like. Because that’s the ultimate goal of everybody.
I just felt like if I look for girls that haven’t had that yet, just the hunger is gonna be that much stronger. It’s just gonna be fresher for the fans and fresher for the locker room where they’ll get excited to work with different people.
Once I thought of it like that, (I) thought let me look at NXT. It was so easy. I knew who I wanted and I knew who could benefit from it. I knew who I can benefit from.”
We will have to wait and see how successful Bayley’s new faction will be. Odds are, they will be given a lot of focus now that Triple H is in charge of WWE Creative.
