Sasha Banks and Bayley walked into WrestleMania as the Women’s Tag Team Champions but were defeated by The IIconics in their fatal four-way match that also included Natalya, Beth Phoenix, Tamina, and Nia Jax.

This defeat meant that Banks and Bayley’s reign was a short one that lasted from Elimination Chamber through to WrestleMania. The two women looked somewhat upset following the loss and Banks then took a four-month hiatus from the company that lead to some interesting rumors.

One of the biggest rumors was the fact that Sasha Banks and Bayley had a tantrum on the floor of their hotel after the match because they were unhappy with the way their reign as the first-ever Women’s Tag Team Champions had gone.

Sasha seemed to state that the rumors were true when she returned and addressed them in a promo on Monday Night Raw, but Bayley has finally spoken up on Sky Sports Lock Up Podcast and revealed that they were a work of fiction.

“We read all the stupid rumors and it’s ridiculous, there’s no proof of it and it’s people just spreading these rumors because they want to talk, they want something to start up.” Sasha Banks later also commented on the rumors, this time out of character saying “show me the footage.”

She continued via “We literally watched the main event in person by the hard cam and enjoyed the women stealing the show, We’re professionals and we love this more than anyone can imagine, more than anyone else in that locker room.”

Bayley is currently the SmackDown Women’s Champion and even though The Boss missed four months of WWE TV following WrestleMania, she and her best friend are back on the same page and were even both drafted to SmackDown as part of the recent live draft.
