In the Royal Rumble, Bayley entered as the third participant and achieved a noteworthy record by lasting an impressive 1 hour and 3 minutes in the ring, which is the longest time record in the women’s Royal Rumble match.
In the closing moments, it boiled down to Jade Cargill, Liv Morgan and Bayley as the last three members. The climax unfolded at the apron, where Morgan successfully eliminated Cargill by hitting Oblivion. Bayley quickly seized the opportunity and kick Morgan away to eliminate her to secure her win.
In the latest episode of RAW, Bayley made a significant announcement, revealing her intentions to challenge Rhea Ripley for the Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 40 if she emerges victorious in the Royal Rumble match.
Currently, Bayley has not officially declared her opponent, leaving speculation about her choice. She has previously said that she would challenge Rhea Ripley for Women’s World title and win it to bring the title to Damage CTRL and complete the takeover.
It’s worth noting that she is part of the Damage CTRL faction, where Iyo Sky holds the Women’s Championship. If Bayley were to select Iyo Sky as her WrestleMania opponent, it would set the stage for a compelling and potentially emotional clash between good friends.
