Professional wrestling career

Independent circuit (2008–2012)

Martinez had been attending shows by Big Time Wrestling, a professional wrestling promotion in Northern California, since she was 11.[6][7] In April 2008, she started her professional wrestling career at the age of 18, by attending Big Time Wrestling's training classes by her head trainer Jason Styles,[6][7] which was one of the reasons why Martinez considered Big Time Wrestling as her home promotion.[6][7] She had her first match in September 2008.[7] On the American independent circuit, Martinez wrestled under the ring name Davina Rose.[11] Rose wrestled for Big Time Wrestling from 2008 to 2012.[12][13] Between 2011 and 2012, Rose branched out to wrestle for other promotions such as NWA Championship Wrestling from Hollywood, Pro Wrestling Destination and Shine Wrestling.[14][15][16]

At the tapings of Shimmer Volume 41–44, she became embroiled in Serena's feud with the Canadian Ninjas (Portia Perez and Nicole Matthews).[6][7] At the tapings, Rose lost all four matches wrestled including her debut match to Mercedes Martinez.[17] In 2012, Rose continued to wrestle for Shimmer and she received her first victory on Volume 48 as she teamed with Mia Yim to defeat Melanie Cruise and Mena Libra; on Volumes 51 and 52, Rose picked up her first two singles victories in Shimmer with wins over Cherry Bomb and Rhia O'Reilly.[18]

In December 2012, it was reported that Martinez had signed with WWE. In January 2013, Martinez made her debut for WWE's developmental territory NXT at a live event, wrestling under a mask as Luchadora for one match, teaming with Paige and Charlotte, defeating Summer Rae, Audrey Marie and Emma in a six man tag team match.[19] She then adopted the ring name Bayley and made her NXT television debut in a loss to Paige on the March 20 episode.[20] On June 12, Bayley adopted a new character of a doe-eyed fangirl, then lost to Alicia Fox in the first round of the NXT Women's Championship tournament to crown the inaugural champion.[21][22] On August 21, Bayley unsuccessfully challenged AJ Lee for the Divas Championship.[23] Bayley got her first win, by teaming with Charlotte against Alicia Fox and Aksana on September 4.[23] To Charlotte's annoyance, The BFFs—Beautiful, Fierce Females (Sasha Banks and Summer Rae), attempted to convince Bayley to join them,[24] but this led to Charlotte attacking Bayley during their match against the BFFs on November 13 and promptly joined the BFFs instead.[25] Bayley then formed a brief alliance with main roster Diva Natalya, defeating Sasha Banks in both tag team and singles matches.

On May 1, 2014, Bayley failed to advance in a tournament for the vacant NXT Women's Championship after losing to Banks in the first round.[26] After pinning Charlotte in a tag team match,[27] Bayley defeated Sasha Banks to become the number one contender to Charlotte's NXT Women's Championship,[28] but she was unsuccessful in capturing the title at NXT TakeOver: Fatal 4-Way,[29] and in a rematch that took place on October 2.[30] In mid-October, after losing to Banks, Bayley was attacked by her former friend Becky Lynch, who allied with Banks, and Bayley later formed an alliance with former rival Charlotte to feud with Banks and Lynch throughout the following several weeks.[31] On the November 27 episode, Bayley was attacked by Banks and Lynch, injuring her knee in the storyline.[32] She returned on the January 21, 2015, episode, saving Charlotte from an attack by Banks and Lynch, before reluctantly attacking Charlotte herself.[33] On February 11 at NXT TakeOver: Rival, Bayley competed in a fatal four-way match for the NXT Women's Championship, but she failed to capture the title.[34]

NXT Women's Champion (2015–2016)

In March 2015, Bayley began a feud with Emma after she criticized Bayley for her niceness and claimed that it had prevented her from winning the NXT Women's Championship.[35][36] This led to a match between the two on the April 1 episode, which Bayley won.[37] On the April 29 episode, Bayley was defeated by Dana Brooke after a distraction by Emma.[38] Bayley gained revenge on Emma the following week, where she attacked her after Emma's loss to Charlotte in a match.[39] At NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable on May 20, Bayley teamed up with Charlotte to defeat Emma and Brooke.[40] On the May 27 episode, Bayley was defeated by Emma, and after the match she and Charlotte were attacked by Emma and Dana Brooke.[41] After a short hiatus, Bayley returned from a broken hand injury, on the July 22 episode, where she defeated Emma and stated she had her sights set on the NXT Women's Championship, officially ending their feud.[42]

In August 2015, after defeating Charlotte,[43] Bayley defeated Becky Lynch to become the new number one contender for the NXT Women's Championship.[44] On August 22 at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn, Bayley defeated Sasha Banks to win the NXT Women's Championship for the first time, and after the match she celebrated with Banks, Lynch and Charlotte.[45] In a rematch between the two, contested in the main event at NXT TakeOver: Respect on October 7, in the first ever women's 30-minute Iron Man match in WWE history,[46] Bayley defeated Banks with three falls to two after securing the third fall with three seconds left in the match to retain the championship.[47][48] Throughout her championship reign, Bayley went on to fend off title contenders such as Alexa Bliss,[49][50][51] Eva Marie,[52][53] Nia Jax[54][55][56][57] and Carmella.[58][59][60]

On the March 16, 2016 episode of NXT, after Bayley and Asuka won a tag team match, NXT general manager William Regal announced that Bayley would defend her championship against Asuka on April 1 at NXT TakeOver: Dallas.[61] At the event, Bayley lost the championship to Asuka, ending her reign at 223 days.[62] After a brief hiatus from in-ring competition, Bayley returned on the May 18 episode after being challenged by Nia Jax to a match, in which she was defeated.[63] After being replaced by Jax at NXT TakeOver: The End due to a storyline injury which made her unable to compete in a rematch for the NXT Women's Championship against Asuka,[64] Bayley made her return on the June 22 episode, where she defeated Deonna Purrazzo.[65] On the July 27 episode, Bayley asked NXT general manager William Regal for a rematch against Asuka for the NXT Women's Championship at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II, which he granted.[66] Two weeks later on the August 10 episode, a contract signing was held between both women, which they accepted and signed.[67] At the event on August 20, Bayley failed to regain the title, in what was her final match in NXT.[68]

On Night 2 of WrestleMania 37, Bayley came out and started insulting the hosts Hulk Hogan and Titus O'Neil, accusing the legends of disrespect, only to get beaten up by The Bella Twins.[151]

Professional wrestling style and persona

When beginning her wrestling career, and in fact, for the vast majority of it, Martinez's character, Bayley, was depicted a "hugger" coming out with multiple inflatable skydancers during her entrances as well as hugging many fans (particularly younger children) in attendance[152][153]

In the ring, Martinez (as Bayley) utilizes her finisher of the belly-to-belly suplex calling it the "Bayley-to-Belly Suplex".[citation needed] Since her heel turn, however, she has started utilizing an old finisher previously used on the independent circuit (a arm trap headlock driver formerly known as the Rose Plant). For the first month as a villain, she was depicted as a hypocrite, acting as nothing had changed with her entrance music and in-ring gear remaining intact, despite developing villainous traits and underhanded tactics. On October 11, 2019, Bayley debuted a new look, having cut her ponytail off, destroying her inflatable tube men, and using profanity against the fans in her post-match promo. She now calls herself a role model for little girls around the world.

Other media

Martinez is playable in six WWE video games, making her video game debut in WWE 2K17[154] and appearing again in WWE SuperCard,[155] WWE 2K18,[156] WWE 2K19,[157] WWE 2K20,[158] and WWE 2K Battlegrounds.[159]

Personal life

Martinez cites Randy Savage, Randy Orton, The Rock, The Hardy Boyz, Lita, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Eddie Guerrero, Ivory, Victoria, Bret Hart, Triple H, and Trish Stratus as her influences in wrestling.[160]

Martinez was previously engaged to fellow professional wrestler Aaron Solow, whom she met in 2010.[161] The engagement was called off on February 21, 2021.[162][163]
