After a year away from the WWE rings due to a major knee injury, Bayley returned during Summerslam 2022 more motivated than before, but not alone, in fact she now has her stable, where she is leader, along with Dakota Kai and IYO SKY (I Shirai).
Bayley presented herself in 2020 with the nickname "Role Model" because she has always believed in being an example to follow and in fact, even in this new role as leader of stable Control (this should be the name), she wants to be an example throughout the women's changing room.
Backstage News on Bayley
"It's going to be a long way, just putting things together and trying to show off some people, or trying to put the whole locker room on the same page," Bayley told WWE After The Bell about her goals in WWE as a leader.
“If we worked a little less selfishly and if we saw the big picture. I feel like we've been in this tunnel of the world we're trying to get our bosses to notice: 'I have what it takes.' 'No, I have what it takes.
'It pits us against each other. No, we show them what we can do. If we show them that we can get along and put on a show where we don't complain about every single thing, then it will make them want to give us more. because it is easier to work with us.
There is a fine line between fighting for what you believe in and then trying to make the most of each situation. I think I can help the girls I bring to navigate these things to foster division. I want the tag titles to come back and play a very important role in the show."
Then the wrestler added: "I'm capable, I get along with most people and I think I can help everyone understand that I'm not doing this because I'm selfish and I'm not doing this because I want everything on me, I'm doing this for the bigger picture and it will be better in the end.
Trust the process. Trust me. Trust what we're doing." Bayley was in conversation with Swerve City Podcast. "The competition made us stand out and get to the level we did. Charlotte and Sasha were the main eventing shows for a long time.
Obviously, we love each other and are there for each other, but it's like, 'Damn, I wish I was in the title picture with you, or I wish I had the title.' It was always friendly but it was always, in our mind, 'I'm better than you, I just need the match to prove it and the opportunity to prove it."
