In case you didn't know...
Bayley is the current WWE SmackDown Women's Champion. She won the championship after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract on Charlotte Flair at the same event. She entered a feud with Alexa Bliss and her sidekick, Nikki Cross. The three women are set to have a match together at Extreme Rules, tomorrow night.
The heart of the matter
Bayley was a guest on the show "Fair Game" with host Kristine Leahy. During the interview, she spoke about her favorite WWE storylines, where she went on to say that her rivalry with Sasha Banks was her favorite feud for the amount of heat Sasha generated from the fans during that time period. Bayley compared this with Eva Marie during her tenure with the company.
"My stuff with Sasha [Banks] in NXT was really fun. That led into me winning the NXT Women's Championship, it felt real and intense—which it was, both of us climbing that mountain, trying to one-up each other. I don't know if you guys remember Eva Marie, she used to wrestle for NXT also. We had a cool, little storyline going on somewhere in there, and the fans despised her."
Eva Marie heard about the interview and responded to Bayley on her Twitter account with the following message. Eva issued a challenge to the Women's Champion if she were to return to WWE.
Bayley replied to Eva Marie later on. Thanking her for the comments and for accepting the challenge.
Eva Marie is obviously not under WWE contract, but she has hinted a return fo the company off and on. If she does return, Bayley will be waiting with open arms to accept her challenge. Bayley will be defending the SmackDown Women's Championship in a 2-on-1 handicap match against Nikki Cross and Alexa Bliss tomorrow night at Extreme Rules.
