Bayley said she continues to supportSasha Banks and Naomi once they walked out of a Raw broadcast in Mayand remained from WWE programming for days gone by 90 days.
Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustratedasked Bayley be it possible Banks and Naomi could join hergroup alongside Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai should they go back to thecompany.
“I haven’t considered whetherthey would join or whether we’d be against them, but somethingwould arise,” she said Friday. “I simply want them to learn I support them100 percent, regardless of what.”
Bayley returned to WWE at SummerSlam inJuly after missing over per year with a torn ACL. She’s served as theleader of the stable with Sky and Kai.
The trio will face off with BiancaBelair, Alexa Bliss and Asuka in a six-woman tag team match as partof the Clash at the Castle pay-per-view Saturday in Wales.
Triple H, the business’s new head of creative following retirement of Vince McMahon, discussed Banks’ WWE future during an interview with BT Sport’sAriel Helwani on Friday (via Liam Winnard of WrestleTalk).
Triple H explained there is a “communication breakdown” that resulted in the former women’s tag teamchampions deciding to go out, and now there is a process to rebuildthe relationship. He added a whole lot depends on how Banks decides tohandle her career:
“But she’s an unbelievably talentedyoung woman that may do almost anything she wants. It just comesdown from what does she wish to accomplish now, with her life, her career,whatever that’s. The passion clearly for what we do… there’s apassion for other activities as well. Also it comes down from what does shewant to accomplish. Because it’s gotta be right on her behalf, gotta be right foreverybody.”
He didn’t directly discuss Naomi’spotential return or whether their futures with the business are linkedto one another.
Banks began to receive moremainstream recognition for playing the role of Koska Reeves in theDisney Plus series The Mandalorian, and she also featured in theopening video package for college football’s National ChampionshipGame last season.
So her opportunities beyond WWE havestarted to expand, and which could are likely involved in whether she’sinterested in time for the ring on a full-time basis.
Having said that, Triple H has showcased astrong relationship with former talents resulting in multiplehigh-profile returns, including Johnny Gargano and Karrion Kross, soit wouldn’t be considered a surprise to see Banks and Naomi back with thecompany soon.
