In a recent interview with FS1’s Kristine Leahy, SmackDown women’s champion Bayley discussed her favorite storyline that she’s been apart of during her time with WWE. The champ states that her 2015 feud with Sasha Banks from NXT felt very real and intense, but also mentions her brief scuffle with Eva Marie.
My stuff with Sasha in NXT was really fun. That led into me winning the NXT Women’s Champions, it felt real and intense—which it was, both of us climbing that mountain, trying to one-up each other. I don’t know if you guys remember Eva Marie, she used to wrestle for NXT also. We had a cool, little storyline going on somewhere in there, and the fans despised her.
Bayley would go on to say that she thoroughly enjoyed working with Marie because the fans despised her so much.
I remember there was one time in the ring and we were trying to talk on the microphone to each other. I could not hear a word she was saying. Every time she put the mic to her mouth, the fans would start booing so loud. The people with the cameras were like, ‘Just start talking,’ because the cameras will still pick it up. But I couldn’t respond to her because I couldn’t hear her over the fans. I always say my matches with her were my favorite because they were so easy, they hated her and they loved me. So, it made it so much fun and easy.

Eva Marie would respond to Bayley’s comments on Twitter, commending the champ for teaching her about in-ring performance, and claiming that she would even return to the WWE to have a showdown with Bayley again.
.@itsBayleyWWE taught me so much about in ring performance, and always went above and beyond to show me the ropes. My matches with her were hands down my favorite! I would come back just to do a run with her! @wwe #AllRedEverything 😈 https://t.co/thQCxXp0of

Bayley told Marie to come back anytime.
Thank you. I’ll take that as a challenge. Come on back sister 😏
