The Role Model reflected upon the moment during her Interview with Stone Cold Steve Austin on his Broken Skull Sessions podcast.
“I didn’t realize it until I got back to the hotel, and I was getting all these tweets,” Bayley revealed. “Fans know more than I do, you know? And they keep up with everything. They were like, ‘First-ever women’s grand slam blah blah blah blah,’ and I was like, ‘Whoa! That’s crazy!’
“This night was freaking huge for me. This was one of those nights with a huge reaction, and I was in the crowd, and I felt like invincible and I couldn’t believe it. Plus, Sash wasn’t there, and it felt like I finally spread my wings, you know, because I didn’t have her for a couple months. And then I did this, and then I felt like I could breathe again, and I’m doing okay with that. I’m doing okay.”
She also revealed that there was a time she felt like she was slipping through the WWE’s fingers. She acknowledged her frustrations with not doing enough for the Women’s division and the company.
“Yeah, this is a time where I was frustrated so much,” she continued. “At SummerSlam, I wrestled Ember Moon. I think the way it was presented to me wasn’t the way that it played out. And then our match, didn’t even match what it could’ve been. So I felt like I was not feeling good. I felt like I wasn’t bringing anything to the table, and I wasn’t doing anything for the division or the company. And it was, I don’t know, it was really, really bothering me.”
