• Bayley Reveals The Name Of Her New WWE Stable
Bayley returned from injury at SummerSlam 2022 and brought former NXT wrestler Dakota Kai and former NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai with her, to confront RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.
WWE has changed Io Shirai’s name to IYO SKY.
They confirmed it on their website while talking about this post-match angle:
“Bayley brought Dakota Kai and IYO SKY along with her, leaving the WWE Universe stunned. The three made their way into the ring, but as Bayley berated Belair, Lynch stepped in to back up her former rival. The WWE Universe erupted in anticipation of a brawl, but Bayley, Kai, and SKY chose to retreat.”
Bayley hinted on Twitter that the name of her stable is “CONTROL”. Below is what she tweeted:
“This is a story about control
Control of what I say
Control of what I do
And this time, I’m gonna do it my way
I hope you enjoy this as much as I do
Are we ready?
‘Cause it’s all about control
And I’ve got lots of it” – @JanetJackson”
