Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has shared another cryptic message that could tease her long-awaited return to the ring.
The Role Model has been out of action since suffering a torn ACL while training for her scheduled Money In The Bank outing vs. Bianca Belair back in the summer of 2021. The injury was expected to keep her out of action for nine months, with that timeframe having come and now gone, many fans are anxious to see Bayley back in action sooner than later.
Back in May, Bayley hit out at fans that were expecting her to return on Raw but now she has set tongues wagging about a return by posting a picture of her wrestling boot on social media, and they are already laced up.

Bayley last appeared on the 2 July 2021 episode of SmackDown, where she challenged Bianca Belair to an I Quit match. She had previously lost to Bianca in a Hell In A Cell match at the titular pay-per-view the month prior, though she’s not wrestled since the 25 June SmackDown episode, teaming with Seth Rollins as they defeated Bianca and Cesaro.
Signing with WWE in December 2012, Bayley has risen to become one of WWE’s most polarising female Superstars as one of WWE’s Four Horsewomen. She currently has six title reigns under her belt, including one each with the Raw and NXT Women’s Championships, and two with the SmackDown Women’s and Women’s Tag Team Championships.
