You summed it up a whole lot better than I ever could've. And your idea to revive Bayley's character sounds like something I can get behind. (Personally, i'd also consider giving this role to Mickie James, she does have the vet credibility that would make it work) P.S: I just now saw this article about how to revive Bayley's career and I figured I share this with you and potentially discuss about. http://popculture.com/wwe/2017/06/15/bayley-wwe-nxt/ My Opinion: The idea of having Bayley potentially returning 'home' to NXT sounds like an intriguing idea on paper, but the idea of Bayley losing EVERY match until she gets demoted sounds maybe a little too risky. So how would I go about it?: Well, with Emma recently returning; you could have her feud with Bayley for a little while, telling her that she 'told her' she would struggle like she did on the main roster and get into her mind a little bit; at first, she doesn't seem to notice and keeps doing her thing, but as the fans continue to turn on her; she begins to start to struggle. This is not helped by Emma tormenting her with mind games. From there, something snaps. She challenges Emma to a match at whatever PPV comes next and she accepts. The two compete in a good match, but it seems like Bayley is holding back; and this ends up costing her the match. The next night, Emma verbally tears into her; proving once and for all that being nice may have started out fun at first, but as time passes, it turns out to be her kryptonite and what ultimately will keep her from ever being what she could have been. Suffering from a loss of confidence, Bayley begins to question whether or not she can do it on this level any longer; the losses continue to pile up until she finally hits rock bottom. To do this, you get Izzy to come over and admit her fandom to, say Alexa Bliss. That's enough for her to breakdown in a pile of tears as a friend of her's (Sasha Banks most likely) goes to comfort her. The next week, a solemn Bayley comes to the ring, no inflatable buddies, no hugs, no nothing. Instead, you just get normal Bayley. She gives a passionate speech on how much she loves wrestling and loves fighting for the fans, but realizes that she can't keep letting her fans down any longer. And then, the bombshell; she reveals that she went to Triple H's office and openly requested to put her back in NXT. She explains that this move would help her find her 'killer instinct' that she now admits she lost along the journey upward. But she assures herself and the fans that one day, she will return better than she ever was and thanks them for all their support. She leaves the ring, hugs a few lucky members of the audience... And poof! You have her go to NXT, have her fight some of the girls there and after sometime has passed, you either bring her back for Survivor Series or just after Wrestlemania season as a more serious, more ruthless, but still lovable competitor. But again, this is just one way to go about it; you guys have come up with a lot of great ways to revive the Bayley character and I truly am happy that we're having this discussion right now. As someone who wants to go into writing in the future, this really has helped the catalyst that sparked the 'road to redemption' storyline for Bayley. The one you just now heard. So, why stop there? Let's keep going and enter in the Hug Express and keep this debate/discussion/bi-curious wrestlefest going for a little while longer.
