Bayley doesn’t worry about the criticism she’s facing from fans about her new look since turning heel. The Smackdown star spoke with The Sun in the UK for a new interview and talked about the reaction to her change in gimmick and more; you can check out some highlights below.
On fans criticizing her new look and attitude: I have always taken a lot of flak, fans are always mean to me, what else is new. But who cares? I dont take anything too personally, so thats good. A lot of people have said they dont like my haircut and they want me to get a manager. They have been making fun of my hair too but it doesnt get to me, these guys can make fun of me all they want. But I dont like it when they overstep their boundaries, because I was never that sort of fan. If you bump into me at the gym or in a restaurant and you want to say hi, then its OK, just dont follow me.
On Moustache Mountain and NXT UK: I am a huge fan of Moustache Mountain, they took care of my fiance when he visited the UK for a few months. I appreciate and love them for taking care of Aaron like that. When I watch the UK scene, because their style is so different to ours, I always see new things that I would love to try or make my own and learn from. I would love to get over there and have some matches in the NXT UK.
On achieving her dream of finding success in WWE: I have moments when I wonder if this is the same WWE that I watched as a kid, because I am at the top of it right now. You have dreams of it as a kid and it is crazy to think of the 10 and 13 year old me and I try not to disappoint her. But then there is the 25, 27 and 30-year-old me and I have to tell her dude, snap out of it. This is your career and life and you are doing great. If I could get a message to that 10-year-old version of me it would be youre not crazy and its going to be OK.
