BAYLEY has slammed rumours she and Sasha Banks had a WrestleMania tantrum as “ridiculous”.
The WWE superstar, real name Pamela Rose Martinez, has been one of the company’s most beloved superstars since her days in NXT.
But the former Hugger, 30, reduced some of her fans to tears last Friday as she turned heel prior to reclaiming the SmackDown Women’s Title from Charlotte Flair.
That followed the transformation of her best friend Sasha Banks, who returned following a four-month exile in August with a new-look and bad ass attitude.
The duo headed into ‘Mania in April as the Tag Team Champions but lost the belts in a fatal four way match to The IIconics.
A number of reports emerged after the extravaganza in New Jersey that both Bayley and Banks were furious at having to drop the belts and threw a temper tantrum.
Several stories claimed the pair laid on the floor of the locker room and cried after the loss.
However, Bayley has laughed of those stories while appearing on the Sky Sports Lock Up podcast.
We read all the stupid rumours and it’s ridiculous
Bayley on reports of her and Sasha Banks throwing a WrestleMania tantrum
She said: “We read all the stupid rumours and it’s ridiculous.
“There’s no proof of it and it’s people just spreading these rumours because they want to talk, they want something to start up.
“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 hit the headlines a week ago by completing her heel turn with a new haircut and entrance.
She has hacked off her iconic ponytail and replaced it with a short bob, and she also used a kendo stick to destroy the inflated buddies which had been an integral part of her character.

In a symbolic gesture to her new attitude, the tube men fell to the ground defeated which proved too much for children at home that had idolised the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
One parent filmed their child wailing in agony as he watched Bayley destroyed her entrance companions with the caption: “This is going over very poorly in my household.”
The California-born star then showed off her fresh ruthless edge by retweeting the video, while partner Sasha Banks replied to it saying: “JAJA.”
After she overcame Charlotte to reclaim the title Bayley then took the mic and told the stunned fans in the arena to “screw themselves”.
