Bayley Hits Out At “Idiot” Fans Calling For Her Return


Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has not minced her words when it comes to fans who are calling for the injured star to 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 July 2021. The injury was expected to keep Bayley out of action for nine months, a time frame that has now been and gone.

Prior to Raw airing on Monday night, news had broken that a former champion in WWE was set to make their return to TV and while many fans contemplated Bayley’s return, it was in fact Alexa Bliss who made her comeback.

Bayley took to social media to lambast fans that were calling for her return in typical Role Model fashion:

“Woke up from a nap to see that you idiots still don’t know understand injuries work!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It’s called ReCoVeRy!!!!!!!! ReHaB!!!!!! Re-MoDeL!!!!!!!!!!! Have some ReSpEcT!”

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 Belair 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 Belair and Cesaro.

Signing with WWE in December 2012, the Californian 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.
