On last night’s episode of WWE SmackDown Live, Bayley attacked her SummerSlam opponent Ember Moon after their loss to Nikki Cross & Alexa Bliss in a tag-team match.
Following the match, Bayley did a backstage interview with Kayla Braxton where she explained her actions.
Bayley said that she only teamed up with Ember because she was told to and that she was not going to forget what Ember did to her last week. Bayley believes that Ember is a worthy competitor but she wasn’t aware Ember would take advantage of her.
“I’ve dealt with too many people like that in my career and I’ve learned from them and that’s why I’m here right now. So, Ember’s going to find out who I’ve become after all these years and that is a Grand Slam Champion and that didn’t happen over night, or over falling for these things, over and over and over again.”
Bayley was then asked if she thinks she was that type of person last night. To this, Bayley clarified that she did it to stand up for herself.
“…I had to stand up for myself. What kind of champion would I be if I didn’t’.”
