Bayley vs IYO SKY match announced for WWE WrestleMania 40 (WWE Women's Championship)
Bayley in December 2023, made a resolution to turn her career back to the winning track by winning the 2024 Women’s Royal Rumble match. She then said that after she wins the rumble match, she would be facing Rhea Ripley for the Women’s World Championship in 2024 at WWE WrestleMania 40.
Bayley had a lot of teases of challenging Rhea Ripley even before her rumble appearance. She seemed more confident and even had wore Rhea Ripley’s “Mami’s Always on Top” gear and with “RR” on her cheek, for a potential feud in the future. She also posted on twitter earlier with the same gear warning Ripley stating “Call me Mami Slayer. I’m coming for you Rhea Ripley”.
At Royal Rumble Bayley stood on her word and won the 2024 women’s royal rumble match by entering at #3, by breaking Rhea Ripley’s longest time inside the rumble match record with 1 hour 3 minutes 3 seconds.
The Role Model then appeared on Raw to announce her decision, where Rhea Ripley confronted her, but got assaulted by Nia Jax, who threatened her not to pick Rhea Ripley and pick IYO SKY instead. She then announced that she would be making her decision at SmackDown. Bayley has now made her decision and the match was made official for WrestleMania 40.
