On a recent edition of WWE’s “The Bump,” the winner of the women’s Royal Rumble match, Bayley, lavished praise on Jade Cargill following her WWE in-ring debut at the 2024 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.
Cargill was among the final three Superstars in the women’s Royal Rumble match, however, she failed to punch her ticket to WrestleMania XL due to her elimination at the hands of Liv Morgan.
Bayley said, “I was not expecting that [Cargill eliminating Jax] and I’m glad I had a front-row seat to it. When she [Cargill] eliminated her [Jax], after seeing that I [thought] need to get rid of this girl…I’m excited to have her within the division. She’s a new obstacle to overcome. She’s someone new that can take care of girls like Nia and I don’t have to do it.”
Bayley also noted that not being featured on the banner and marketing materials for WrestleMania XL, despite winning the women’s Royal Rumble match is something that fuels her. She said,
“Yeah, it really, I hate to say that it gets to me, but it’s been happening way too often. They just posted a WrestleMania banner, and I’m not on it. They put freaking Bianca [on it]. You know who eliminated Bianca? Bayley. I set a damn record. What else do I have to do? Those things fuel me to do what I did on Saturday, to make history. So if they don’t want to put me on a poster until I make it into the freaking Hall of Fame, then fine. I’ll wait for it. Because I don’t need them, I don’t need the sheep, I don’t need anybody. I just need my Damage CTRL and I need my beautiful heart and soul and my vision to never give up, John Cena.”
Bayley will challenge her former Damage CTRL stablemate IYO SKY for the WWE Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 40.
