On Friday’s Smackdown, Bayley was absent, marking her third straight week off the show. In relation to this, PWInsider.com had claimed that Charlotte Flair would appear on this episode, but the Queen was also absent.
443610 posted on the Squared Circle Reddit, “And it is very telling, because this was the first episode before WrestleMania 37. Had Charlotte been present, she might have begun an angle with the longest-reigning Smackdown Women’s Champion ever. Now, if you think of it, Charlotte, like Bayley, has been lacking direction heading into Mania 37, especially now that she is coming off contracting COVID-19 and consequently being replaced by Rhea Ripley against Asuka. But nothing has come of PWInsider’s claim.
This means that, unless the Battle Royals return, the Role Model will be absent from the Grandest Stage of Them All for the first time in her career. And it is a shame. This is a Grand Slam Champion, and yet she is sitting at home with nothing to do.
What do you think, guys? Can WWE still get Bayley a spot at Mania 37? Let me know below!”
Bayley’s feud with Sasha Banks blew off months before WrestleMania 37, so sadly her best chance at a match seems to have gone away with Sasha Banks’ emergence.
