Former WWE Star opens up on her real-life relationship with Bayley

Former WWE Superstar AJ Lee discussed her friendship with Bayley and how The Role Model assisted her in keeping up with the industry's developments.

AJ worked for the Stamford-based promotion for almost six years and has strong ties to a number of current and previous stars. Bayley is also a close friend of hers. During the former's time in WWE, the two collaborated.

On The Sessions with Renee Paquette, AJ said that Bayley was a huge assistance to her when she returned to professional wrestling:

"There are these folks that are quite well-known, and I'm looking for someone to explain to me, like, give me a little biography.

So I'm learning, and it's been amazing to watch how far [pro wrestling] has progressed.

Bayley, fortunately, is one of my best wrestling buddies, and she has always kept me in the know.

Pam is one of the most amazing people I've ever met. She is truly [a remarkable individual].

She's a unicorn to me. I've always kept in touch with her, so I've learned a lot from her through the years."

AJ Lee influenced Bayley's career, she said. Bayley is regarded as one of the most talented female wrestlers of her generation.

Since 2012, The Role Model has been involved with WWE and has won numerous titles during that time.

“Obviously I can’t name all the women that have helped us, but I always have to give credit to AJ [Lee]. She changed my life when she just said it’s okay to be myself.

Her whole thing was stay weird and be yourself, and she dressed how she wanted to and it inspired so many girls. There’s a lot of women that people don’t even realize have made this all possible.”
