Pamela Rose Martinez is an American professional wrestler. She is signed to WWE, where she performs on the SmackDown brand under the ring name Bayley.
Long before she was a SmackDown LIVE Superstar, Bayley was a 10-year-old superfan in San Jose, Calif., watching her favorites like Lita and Eddie Guerrero on TV. She decided then that she wanted to inspire fans the same way the Superstars of the ’90s and early ’00s did for her.
When she turned 18, Bayley started to train for the squared circle, and after learning the ropes on the indies in 2012, she joined NXT’s burgeoning Women’s division. But she didn’t mirror Charlotte’s confidence, Sasha Banks’ swagger or Becky Lynch’s toughness. Instead, Bayley had an ever-present smile and an overwhelming enthusiasm that made it impossible to root against her.
She quickly inspired young ladies to wear side ponytails and grown men to embrace hugs. In 2015, she competed in the first 30-minute WWE Iron Man Match featuring two female competitors, defeating Banks to retain the NXT Women’s Championship and setting a new standard for the Women’s divisions in both NXT and WWE. She then went on to have classic showdowns against Asuka and Nia Jax before debuting on Raw on the night after SummerSlam 2016. On Feb. 13, 2017, Bayley achieved a lifelong dream when she defeated Charlotte to win her first Raw Women's Championship, and two years later made history alongside Sasha Banks when they became the first WWE Women's Tag Team Champions before moving to SmackDown LIVE in the 2019 Superstar Shake-up.
When Bayley steps through the ropes, her opponents can be sure of two things: Bayley’s gonna hug you, then she’s gonna suplex you.
Professional wrestling style and persona Edit
Martinez's character, Bayley, is depicted a "hugger" as she comes out with multiple inflatable skydancers during her entrances as well as hugging many fans (particularly younger children) in attendance She has earned the nickname "The Doctor of Hugonomics" (in allusion to John Cena's Thugonomics gimmick in the mid-2000s).
In the ring, Martinez (as Bayley) utilizes her finisher of the Belly-to-belly suplex calling it the "Bayley to Belly Suplex".
Other media Edit
Bayley has appeared in three WWE video games. She made her in-game debut at WWE 2K17 and appears in WWE 2K18 and WWE 2K19.
Personal life Edit
Martinez cites Randy Savage, The Rock, The Hardy Boyz, Lita, Rey Mysterio, John Cena, Eddie Guerrero, Ivory, Victoria, Bret Hart, Triple H, The Fabulous Moolah, and Trish Stratus as her influences in wrestling. Martinez is engaged to Aaron Solow, whom she met in 2010. She is also an avid collector of Lego and pogo sticks.
