Bayley has been analysing her wrestling career so far following the tragic sudden passing of Bray Wyatt.

The former Women’s Champion was sadly reminded that a person’s time in wrestling and in life in general is short, with the fact hitting home during the August 25th episode of SmackDown that served as a tribute to both Wyatt and Terry Funk.

Speaking with The Comeback, the leader of Damage CTRL revealed that she is trying to figure out what her lasting impression on the business will be when the final chapter of her career has been written:

“I really have been trying to reflect on what I want personally out of what I want my legacy to be. After the Bray Wyatt tribute show, I felt I really needed to figure it out. I’m working on my legacy every day and every single week. Sometimes, you get lost in the shuffle or the travel and the busy schedule, that at least me personally, I kind of lose sight of what the bigger picture is. And what I’m trying to do.”

The former Women’s Champion continued, revealing that one of her goals is to have a marquee match on the grandest stage in WWE:

“Last night, I thought about, I haven’t had a singles match on a pay-per-view in a while, and I want a singles match at WrestleMania, and so many things I want.”

Bayley Looks To Elevate Damage CTRL

Following the return from injury in 2022, Bayley has been associated with Dakota Kai and IYO SKY. The group has found success as SKY won the Money in the Bank briefcase and successfully cashed it in on Bianca Belair to become the new Women’s Champion. The former Women’s Champion stated that she wants to elevate Kai and SKY and not just her own work:

“I wanna make sure that I’m cementing my legacy, and that goes for Damage CTRL too. IYO, I want her to have the best title run of all time. Dakota should get a title shot. All of us end up at WrestleMania in a Triple Threat for the title as best friends? I’m fine with that, too. Let’s put that in the universe, I just want to continue to cement a legacy and be able to still inspire the fans and have a connection that I’ve had since day one. And watch us all grow every day.”
