Bayley has some words for #1 fan Izzy Moreno as she prepares to step inside the squared circle herself at the age of 16.
In 2015, Bayley and Sasha Banks took the world by storm in an NXT Women’s Championship match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn that saw Bayley capture her first taste of gold in WWE.
In the leadup to Bayley’s monumental title win, she was supported at ringside by a special fan, a young girl named Izzy who could be seen sporting her hero’s merchandise and signature side ponytail. While Izzy wasn’t able to be in Brooklyn for Bayley’s big win over Sasha Banks, she was ringside at TakeOver: Respect to see the two women have a 30-minute Iron Man match in the main event.
During the main event bout, Sasha Banks grabbed the young girl’s headband, causing Izzy to break down into tears. Banks later apologized and gave flowers to the young fan, who humorously told Sasha to ask before borrowing her headband next time.
8 years after finding fame as an NXT fan, Izzy is now 16 years old and set to follow in her hero’s footsteps when she makes her professional wrestling debut for Mission Pro Wrestling, a Texas-based promotion run by AEW star Thunder Rosa. On August 12th, she’ll be taking on independent star Jazmin Allure, who attacked Izzy at a recent event.
What Did Bayley Say To Izzy Moreno?
Taking to social media after Izzy shared a photo of her Bayley-inspired ring gear, the Role Model sent words of encouragement to the young star, but also sent a warning about what might happen if Izzy is unable to defeat Jazmin Allure.
“If you couldn’t tell by this past Saturday at #Summerslam, I BREED CHAMPIONS. Enjoy every second of this weekend @ItsIzzyMania. I’m proud to see how far you’ve come. (Please don’t lose or I’ll disown you so quick)”
If you couldn’t tell by this past Saturday at #Summerslam, I BREED CHAMPIONS.

The Damage CTRL leader’s comments about SummerSlam reference IYO SKY’s big win. SKY became the WWE Women’s Champion after cashing in her Money in the Bank contract on Bianca Belair moments after Belair pinned Charlotte Flair to win the title for herself.
Continuing the wholesome gestures, Bayley will be auctioning off some of her old gear to raise money for charity.
