In-Ring: Jacy Jayne
Jacy Jayne makes her way to the ring. Jacy says last week was the end of the Toxic Attraction story and the start of the Jacy Jayne story. It is all about her. The proof is in the boot. For the last seven days she has been the talk of NXT. Not Roxanne Perez, Bron Breakker, Carmelo Hayes, or Gigi Dolin. The name on the tongues of every is Jacy Jayne. That is her. For those of you who asked if I regret stomping Gigi’s head in. The only thing I regret is not pulling the trigger sooner. I have watched the footage 1,000 times. The only thing better than that is to see it 1,001 times.
We see what happened again. We see a photo of Gigi’s face after the attack.
Jacy sheds fake tears for that happened. If she hears one more time, “did you have to kick her that hard?” Yes I did. You act like Gigi was the victim but anyone with two brain cells, so no one in this building, understands that she is the real victim. Your days of doing half the work and taking all of the credit are over. Sorry, Jannetty . . . Gigi, we are going to see you for who you really are. Your security blanket is no longer going to protect you. I am not going to cover up your mistakes.
Jacy says she wants everyone in the building and at home to listen very very carefully to what she has to say. This is the most important thing she has to say. SCREW YOU. For the last two years, ever since Toxic Attraction started, you saw me as the one who didn’t belong. You said she was the third wheel and wondered why she was part of the group. This group became the most dominant female faction in WWE history. Look who is the last woman standing.
