Bayley: “Io Shirai Is a Close Second to Sasha Banks!”


During a recent interview with TalkSport, Bayley praised Sasha Banks. She also said that Io Shirai is a close second. You can check out some highlights from the interview below:

On Bayley vs. Sasha Banks not happening on pay-per-view yet: “Not my fault! I would love to, I would love to. She is obviously the best ever, in my opinion. The best to ever do it. But, I guess, if her ankle is OK for the Rumble on Sunday after what Lacey Evans did to her on SmackDown, I would love to see her win the Royal Rumble match. Then I could go on and beat Lacey and maybe we could have that big old main event that we deserve [at WrestleMania].”

On Io Shirai: “Me too! You know when I said Sasha was the greatest? [laughs]. She is, but a close second is Io Shirai. When I think about how I look wrestling, it’s like that. Then when I see myself it’s like [shakes her head], I ain’t even… she’s amazing. But, I’m the champion, so suck it, Io.”

On NXT: “There’s so many. To be honest, lately I’ve been a little annoyed with them after their shenanigans at Survivor Series and it makes me sick how comfortable they were – but I’m bigger than that. I’m going to look past that and forward. Rhea Ripley, obviously. Teegan Knox. Dakota Kai. Candice LeRae. Bianca Belair is just outstanding. I’m very interested in Chelsea Green, to see where she goes. She’s got a new manager and a different outlook.”
