Bayley has publicly issued a message about her WWE group known as Damage CTRL ahead of Dakota Kai & IYO SKY competing in a big tag team title match.
At SummerSlam 2022, Bayley made her WWE return after missing a year with a torn ACL injury. Bayley didn’t come alone because she was joined by Dakota Kai, who signed a new deal with WWE and IYO SKY, who used to be known as Io Shirai.
The trio known as Damage CTRL has seen Kai & SKY win the Women’s Tag Titles twice and they are also the current champions. Bayley has also had lengthy, high-profile feuds with the likes of Raw Women’s Champion Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch.
Last week on the February 20th edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Becky Lynch and WWE Hall of Famer Lita challenged Kai & SKY to a Women’s Tag Team Title match. That match is on for this coming Monday, February 27th. That has led to Bayley doing her best to motivate her team.
On Instagram, Bayley praised her Damage CTRL teammates Dakota Kai & IYO sky for trusting her vision and remarked that they will continue to be successful together.
“I’m so damn proud of #DamageCTRL. Since we debuted together 7 months ago, my girls have been thrown into the fire and have not slowed down. One of them wasn’t even working for the company when she got the call, and the other came straight from an injury. I can’t say everyone would’ve done that, but they did.
Not knowing what the future held, @imkingkota and @iyo_sky took a leap of faith – joining me in a very crucial time for all of our careers. They trusted my vision. They saw what I saw. They felt it. They know that even after nearly 15 years in this business, there is still so much they have left to do. And that’s why WE will be successful. I’ve done a lot, but I haven’t done it all and that eats at me every single day.
And I know I can get it done with Dakota and Iyo by my side. I know that these tag titles mean as much to them as they do to me. I know that it’s more than just a championship for them, it’s a second chance at a dream.”
“This Monday, the future shines over the past and the present.”
Dakota Kai replied with this:
“I can literally say, I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for you. Thank u for guiding us through all the challenges, mental & physical. love u sm & can’t wait to see what you accomplish ❤️”
IYO also commented on the post:
“Thanks to YOU and Dakota, I am enjoying “now” in a way I never could have imagined. What a life!!!!❤️❤️❤️”
