The 34-year-old's next challenger is Piper Niven and the duo are set to lock horns at Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event.

Bayley recently took to X (formerly Twitter) to react to 14-time NBA All-Star Jerry West's demise. The legend unfortunately passed away on June 12, 2024, at the age of 86.

Bayley's opponent compared her to WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels

During a recent interview with PWInsider, Piper Niven was full of praise for Bayley, saying that she had a lot of respect for The Role Model.

Niven also mentioned that she admired the current Women's Champion because of her work ethic, which is similar to that of WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels.

"I think [Bayley] is incredibly talented. I think she brings out the best in her opponents and I really think that is something that should be respected not just as a fan but as a fellow performer. And you really admire the people that work like that and another performer like that comes to mind, Shawn Michaels, so I really do have a lot of respect for her. But, with that in mind I'll try and keep that respect in mind when I'm drilling her head into the mat and taking her belt off her," Niven said.

Many fans believe Piper Niven might dethrone Bayley as the WWE Women's Champion at the Clash at the Castle Premium Live Event. It will be interesting to see who will come out on top.
