Even Bayley herself was not impressed by WWE always turning a blind eye towards her and she became a victim of ignorance over and over again. Bayley spoke her mind when she was asked the reason behind her not being on the Wrestlemania 40 banner.
“Yeah, it really, I hate to say that it gets to me, but it’s been happening way too often. They just posted a WrestleMania banner, and I’m not on it. They put freaking Bianca [on it]. you know who eliminated Bianca? Bayley. I set a damn record.” Bayley said.
What else do I have to do? Those things fuel me to do what I did on Saturday, to make history. So if they don’t want to put me on a poster until I make it into the freaking Hall of Fame, then fine. I’ll wait for it. Because I don’t need them, I don’t need the sheep, I don’t need anybody. ,” she added.
She even retweeted a poster with a hilarious caption:
