Bayley Would Welcome A New Women’s Championship And More Intergender Wrestling Matches

Bayley Would Welcome A New Women’s Championship And More Intergender Wrestling Matches

WWE superstar Bayley would back the introduction of a new women's championship and believes it "would be cool" if more intergender wrestling matches took place.

WWE has continued to push ahead with the 'Women's Revolution' and introduced the Women's Tag Team Championship in 2018.

Bayley, who was the inaugural tag team champ with Sasha Banks, believes it would be "great" to see a women's title introduced in the same vein as the Intercontinental or United States Championship.

But the 30-year-old SmackDown women's champ revealed what needs to be done before the new championship should be introduced.

She explained: "Yeah, I think that would be great, except we just need a few more women on the roster, a few more people to step it up and a little more opportunity on our shows."

Intergender wrestling has divided fans and even WWE superstar Seth Rollins slammed the idea of it last August.

"There are places for it," he told the Daily Star, before adding: "but this full-on independent style women vs men match where the women are chokeslamming the men?

"Our business is based in realism, so let's do that as best we can. I think let's live in reality a little bit here."

However, Bayley has thrown her full support behind the idea and pointed to the Mixed Match Challenge as a strong case for intergender wrestling.

She explained: "No, I think that would be cool [to see intergender wrestling].

"It's something different and something that... when we were doing the Mixed Match Challenge -- you know, [the] Facebook thing -- it seemed like people were loving to see the interactions between two superstars that you wouldn't normally see.

"Just as far as their promos backstage or making entrances together, fans seemed to really enjoy that. And so do we because it's different.

"So, I would love to see that stuff. I grew up watching, you know, The Hardy Boyz and Lita [and] them teaming up against Hardcore Holly and Crash Holly and Mighty Molly.

"Things like that -- I would love to see something like that come back."

Bayley also opened up about the WWE superstars that she would love to face from each of the company's wrestling brands.

And the SmackDown women's champ left the door open to WWE legend Lita over a potential dream clash.
