Bayley Will “Never Give Up Hope” For Mercedes Moné Return To WWE
Bayley wants to see Mercedes Mone back in WWE and promises to “never give up hope” of a return.
Bayley appeared on the latest edition of Ariel Helwani Meets and was asked about a possible return for her former tag team partner.
The Damage CTRL leader feels that Mone will “take over the world” after winning the IWGP Title in her first match since leaving WWE last year. But hopes to see the previously named Sasha Banks back in WWE down the line.
“I’ll say yes. Because I mean, this is her home. This is her dream, and I love to see what she’s doing and what she’s going to be doing over the next few months.”
“She’s going to literally take over the world, take the world by storm, but I know this is her home and where her heart is. By her heart, I mean me, so she needs to come back to me, you know? I need her, I need my travel partner, but I’m gonna say yes like I’ll never give up hope that she’ll come back.”
Mercedes Mone made her first appearance for NJPW at Wrestle Kingdom 17 in January, attacking then-Champion Kairi to set up the Battle In The Valley Title bout.
Bayley was in attendance for Mone’s NJPW debut, and explained to Helwani that it felt important to be there for Mone, after all the support given to her in the past.
“I went there on my own. There were a few of us that flew out there just because she’s been there for all my big moments, you know, even as she hasn’t been a part of the company. I’ve made my return. I’ve had my big matches; she’s there for me. So, of course, I want to be there for her, and we’ve done so much together and WWE. She means so much to me and so much to the wrestling world. I have to be there for this moment.”
“I literally flew out right after Raw, got to Japan two hours before the show started, and raced over there and met everybody there and sat in the crowd, kind of incognito. It was so magical to be there for her.”
“I just knew how important it was to her, and she just loves this. Everybody knows how much she loves this and how much wrestling means to her, and how much WWE means to her, and she wouldn’t be there without WWE. So I think it meant a lot to her that I was able to go.”
Bayley also praised the desire and bravery of her stable members Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky, ahead of defending the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championship on this week’s Raw against Becky Lynch and returning WWE Hall of Famer Lita.
