Bayley has challenged Kay Lee Ray to appear on WWE SmackDown to prove herself as WWE’s longest-reigning Women’s Champion in recent history.
Posting on Twitter, Kay Lee Ray wrote that she has now hit 524 days as WWE NXT UK Women’s Champion. The impressive tally makes her the longest-reigning WWE Women’s Champion since The Fabulous Moolah over 35 years ago.
As the tweets above show, Kay Lee Ray said she could reach 10,170 days as WWE NXT UK Women’s Champion one day. That is the number of days that the WWE Women’s Championship was held by The Fabulous Moolah between September 1956 and July 1984.
Bayley held the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship for a record-setting 519 days across her two reigns with the title. She responded by inviting Kay Lee Ray to WWE SmackDown to face the “real” longest-reigning WWE Women’s Champion.
