Fans have been eagerly waiting to witness the former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley back in programming. One of Bayley’s last televised matches took place on “WWE SmackDown” in June last year. She was in a mixed tag match with Seth Rollins. The pair had defeated Bianca Belair and Cesaro (now AEW star Claudio Castagnoli).
‘The Role Model’ had suffered a knee injury in July last year while training at the Performance Center. She was scheduled to take on Bianca Belair in a SmackDown Women’s title match at Money In The Bank last year as well. It was announced added that she would be out of action for about nine months due to her injury. ‘The Role Model’ seemingly revealed the exact spot that resulted in her knee injury.
Bayley might return at SummerSlam
Mike Johnson of PWInsider recently reported about the possible return date for the star:
“For those who have asked about the status of Bayley and when she’s slated to return to WWE programming, PWInsider.com has learned she is scheduled to be in Nashville for Summerslam weekend.”
Bayley has been hinting on social media that she is close to returning. The horrific injury has kept her away from WWE ring and meanwhile, she underwent knee reconstruction surgery as well. We will now have to see when she is able to make her return.
Bayley isn’t the only WWE Superstar that has been out of action that will be in Nashville for SummerSlam weekend. The former WWE Champion Big E will be making his first public appearance since suffering a major injury on “WWE SmackDown” on March 11. He will be working with WWE between July 27-29 in Nashville at a talent tryout for current and graduated college athletes.
