Jacy Jayne Received Shawn Michaels' Blessing For Toxic Attraction Implosion Angle
Jacy Jayne called back to Shawn Michaels' betrayal of Marty Jannetty on WWE NXT
One of WWE NXT's top acts imploded on the post-Vengeance Day episode of NXT as Jacy Jayne laid out her Toxic Attraction tag team partner Gigi Dolin, superkicking Dolin before she smashed her head into the Ding Dong, Hello! door and booted her in the face.
The angle was reminiscent of The Rockers' split that saw Shawn Michaels hit Marty Jannetty with a Sweet Chin Music before he threw his tag team partner through a barber shop window.
Speaking about the Toxic Attraction turn on Busted Open Radio, Jayne revealed she received Shawn Michaels' blessing to "redo some history."
"So I actually didn't really know much going into that day. They were kind of very hush-hush about everything happening. All I really knew was I was going to be on 'Ding Dong, Hello!' So that's a lot of pressure having Bayley come back. It was the first time she even had that show in -- I think -- like two years. It was also the first time it was ever in front of a live audience because that was always done during the pandemic era. So I feel like there was a lot of pressure going into that alone," Jayne stated.
"And then kind of getting Shawn's blessing to redo some history there. That's a big deal for me. I didn't want to mess it up. I didn't want to screw up. I wanted to make a memory. I think everybody knew Toxic Attraction was going to explode soon. But to make it memorable, we had to go big. So we wanted it to be vicious. We wanted it to be memorable. We wanted people to talk about it. Not just something like, 'Oh, that was a good segment. Yeah, whatever. Now they're by themselves.' Like, no, we want people to remember this and be like, 'Oh, this is a new coming for two new superstars on a solo route.'"
Jayne will explain her actions on the February 14 edition of NXT. Dolin will reportedly be off TV for a few weeks to sell the attack from Jayne.
