WWE star Iyo Sky bizarrely asked about fighting Taylor Swift in press conference, her reaction is priceless

WWE star Iyo Sky fielded a bizarre question about Taylor Swift in an official press conference - and her reaction was priceless.
Sky retained her WWE Women's Championship at Fastlane on Saturday night, defeating Charlotte Flair and Asuka in a triple threat match.
The 'Genius of the Sky' pinned Flair with a moonsault, shortly after Damage CTRL stablemate Bayley had distracted the referee.
And both Sky and Bayley, alongside fellow Damage CTRL team-mate Dakota Kai, were a part of WWE's official Fastlane press conference - but the champion could not have prepared for the first question she was asked.
Journalists in the press room are invited to ask questions by host Byron Saxton, and the first journalist stood up.
Instead of quizzing Sky on her recent title defence, though, he asked whether she would be prepared to put her WWE Women's Championship on the line against pop icon Swift at WrestleMania 40 next year, which takes place in Swift's home state of Pennsylvania.
Swift nor WWE has never mentioned the possibility of her making an appearance for the company, although commentator Wade Barrett did make a passing reference to the star, and her reported relationship with NFL tight end Travis Kelce, on the latest edition of Raw when fellow NFL star George Kiltie appeared in the crowd.
Sky was nonetheless confused at the question - as was pretty much everybody else watching the press conference.
And she took a double take at the reporter before simply asking: "Are you crazy?", while Kai and Bayley simply laughed.

She then added: "If she wants, then I'm ready for Taylor Swift," before pointing to her title.
Sky took to X (Twitter) after the press conference had concluded, writing: "Thank you so much for tonight guys!!
"Who will be the next challenger for this my title? The answer should not be Taylor Swift!!!!"
