  • Bayley initiated a partnership with Iyo Sky, paving the way for them to become an influential force in the women’s roster.
  • The once united duo has now become bitter enemies, with Sky’s rise to the top leading to a split and a WrestleMania showdown.
  • Despite facing a numbers game and betrayal, Bayley is determined to claim her first title at WrestleMania 40 in a historic one-on-one match.

Just days before they compete against each other at WWE WrestleMania 40, Bayley has lifted the lid on the origins of her partnership with former Damage CTRL stablemate Iyo Sky.

Bayley Reached Out With An Offer

The on-screen partnership between Bayley and Sky originally started at WWE SummerSlam in 2022 when they and Dakota Kai appeared as a surprise to confront Bianca Belair, and since then they have been a consistent force on the women’s roster. However, what fans don’t know is the behind-the-scenes nature of how that group began.

Leading a women’s faction was something Bayley had wanted to do, and she had actively pitched it to WWE’s creative team during her time on the shelf. However, the former Damage CTRL leader has now shared the real-life text message she first sent Sky in a bid to get things started.

Bayley posted the text on social media for fans to see, which includes Sky’s excited response, giving people an idea of what the pitching process is like for wrestlers. It also adds further fuel to their current storyline after Sky opted to betray Bayley alongside Kairi Sane, Asuka, and Kai which has led to their upcoming match.

Bayley & Iyo Sky Have Gone From Partners To Enemies

Bayley’s offer to Sky might have been the route to the main roster for the latter, but it is a partnership that has ended up turning sour. With Sky growing an increasing influence due to being the WWE Women’s Champion, and further additions to the group pushing Bayley out, her Royal Rumble victory wasn’t well received.

Rather than supporting Bayley’s original hope to challenge Rhea Ripley a split took place between the group, turning Bayley babyface, and now the former friends are set to collide on the Grandest Stage Of Them All. The encounter between Bayley and Sky for the title will mark Bayley’s first ever one-on-one match at WrestleMania, as she attempts to win the title for the first time.

Bayley has been fighting a numbers game throughout the build to WrestleMania 40 though, with her past actions leading to few members of the roster wanting to help her. While she’s had Naomi fighting her corner in recent weeks, it remains to be seen whether or not the Four Horsewoman will be able to overcome the odds at the Showcase Of The Immortals.
