Bayley’s 2019 has been very, very good. Since the start of this year, she’s gone on to become:
- the first ever Women’s Tag Team Champion alongside Sasha Banks
- Winner of the Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match
- the New SmackDown Women’s Champion
- the first ever Women’s Grand Slam Champion
However, Bayley’s draft to SmackDown LIVE at the post-WrestleMania Superstar Shake-up was a little challenging to the Superstar. In a behind the scenes video from the Stomping Grounds event, Bayley talked about quite a few things that she went through after being drafted to SmackDown LIVE earlier this year:
I love this business so much, too much, it drives me crazy. When I moved to SmackDown, I felt very alone. Like, I left my friends on Raw and I’d never been on SmackDown before so I felt a little insecure. And then I had to snap out of it. It was like ‘well, what do you think you’re gonna do here? If you sit here and you feel sad or you feel scared you’re just gonna get walked all over.’
So I instantly had to change my mindset. I instantly had to change the gears in my head, and just had to freaking go. I had to not stop, I had to not look back. Don’t think about Raw, do not think about the people you’re leaving behind, and don’t think about anything else. Just think about yourself for a change and go. That’s what I’ve been riding off and Money in the Bank kind of really sealed the deal. Like, ‘okay, you can trust yourself. Believe in yourself, because good things happen.
Ultimately, Bayley’s worked hard and come out on top successfully and has overcome these adversities that she faced initially on SmackDown. Her next challenge will come as a match against Alexa Bliss at the Extreme Rules pay-per-view in July.
