Tay Conti is quickly becoming one of the top stars in AEW’s women’s division, but first experience with pro wrestling occurred during her initial tryout with WWE.
AEW Stars Tay Conti and the Dark Order’s #99 Anna Jay were recently guests on Renée Paquette’s Oral Sessions Podcast. During the interview Tay discussed her tryout with WWE. She talks about how Bayley was always screaming at her, and how she had no idea what she was doing.
“I remember more like Bayley because she was screaming at me all the time. Yes … That was crazy because honestly, I had no idea what I was doing. I’ll be 100% honest, no idea. But then, because of my background, I was like, ‘That’s a competition and I want to win.’ And then I was like, ‘What am I winning? I don’t even know. But like, it’s a lot of people, it’s a competition, and I’m going to be the best.’ That was my mentality. And I didn’t know any words [in English]. Like, I didn’t know how to say ‘Hi’ back then, right? And I had to watch it first, and then try to do it. And I’m like ‘Oh my god, I have no idea what I’m doing.’ I had to be copying what other people were doing because I had no clue. But then that was fun. That was a great opportunity I will never forget. And I remember Bayley like, every time I was doing this stance, she was like ‘AHH,’ screaming in my face. She was motivating me and I was like ‘Hell yeah! I like this.’”
