During a recent interview with Sky Sports, WWE Superstar, Bayley offered her thoughts on Paige’s unfortunate retirement from in-ring competition. You can see a highlight of the interview below with a H/T to Ringside News for the transcriptions.
“We all know going into this business and stepping in the ring we all know there’s the possibility of any kind of injury. But you’re never expecting it to happen and when it does it’s just the worst thing ever.
“Paige is somebody who is very close to me outside of the ring. She helped me when I first got to NXT. Like, she was the only person I knew when I started. We had met in Shimmer. So she kind of like looked out for me and introduced me to the right people… I felt like I was cool because I knew Paige.
“We were neighbors and we hung out all the time so we were very close so it was hard to see [Paige’s injujry]. But she is like such a good person and such a positive person that she’s accepted her role that she’s in now as SmackDown General Manager. I think she’s doing such a great job because she’s such a character and I know she’s going to do amazing things going forward in the company even though she can’t be in the ring anymore which is heartbreaking but she’s just incredible. She’s going to be successful in anything she’s doing.”
Paige herself clearly heard these comments as she responded to it on Twitter, claiming that Bayley is one of the sweetest people, thanking her for the kind words.
Bayley. One of the sweetest, genuine people I know. Thanks for positivity and friendship ❤️ https://t.co/Cw1rMSO04o
