In WWE, Bayley is the gold standard for women’s performers. But her wrestling career could soon be coming to a close if statistical data and current booking decisions are any indication.
Renowned for her ring awareness, generosity with other performers, and roll-with-the-punches attitude, Bayley has come a long way since bursting onto the NXT scene in 2012 after four years on the independent circuit.
Born Pamela Rose Martinez in June of 1989, she got her start in professional wrestling at the age of 19 and quickly forged a path performing as Luchadora and Davina Rose to the doors of the WWE.
Her gimmick in NXT was that of a power-of-positivity fangirl, but it slowly developed into a hybrid of Hulk Hogan and John Cena in the body of a five-feet-six-inch, 119-pound woman.
