Bayley credits The Revival for help with tag team transition

The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection – made up of Bayley and Sasha Banks – are heading into their first title defense this Sunday at Fastlane. There, they will face the powerhouse team of Nia Jax and Tamina. Bayley and Banks won the first ever WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships at the Elimination Chamber pay-per-view this past February. The two women were the last team standing in the first-ever women’s tag team Elimination Chamber match.

Bayley and Banks have both had successful careers as singles stars, but she said tag team wrestling is so much different. In an interview with The Mirror, Bayley went on to say they were fortunate to have direction from The Revival on how to make the transition as smooth as possible.

“It’s so hard. It’s so so different. It’s a whole different psychology and it’s been a struggle to learn, but it’s been very fun. Sasha and I are so lucky to have The Revival on Raw with us and we’re so lucky to be such good friends with them because they help us so much in understanding the why in so many things.

They teach us the psychology of actually being a tag team – people don’t understand that. When you’re in a tag match, like, you have this tag partner and you make it known that you have this partner that you can work with. There’s so many little things, we’ve had hundred[s] of tag matches, but now that we are The Boss ‘n’ Hug Connection, we are the Women’s Tag Team Champions, we have to up our game as far as these matches go.

Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder will sit with us and watch matches with us and show us matches that we all learn from and I can’t say enough good things about them, because they’ve helped us so much. I’m just excited to get better.”

Do you think The Boss ‘N’ Hug Connection will retain their titles at this Sunday’s Fastlane?
