Bayley hasn’t been seen on WWE television in more than a year, but according to a new report she could be on her way back very soon.
Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Bayley has been out of the ring since early July 2021 with a serious knee injury.
Heading into Money In The Bank 2021, Bayley had been set to meet Belair in an “I Quit” match, but sustained an injury during a training session. It was later reported that the former NXT star had sustained a torn ACL while performing a chain wrestling drill.
At the time it was suggested that Bayley would be out of action for around nine months, a timescale which would have seen her return to action in April 2022.
In recent weeks, speculation around the star has hit fever-pitch with WWE’s women’s division now missing Sasha Banks and Naomi. This speculation has led to increasingly strong rumours suggesting the star will be making her return at Money In The Bank.
A new report from Fightful Select has now confirmed that the former NXT star has been preparing to return to the ring. Bayley herself has alluded to this on social media, but it has now been confirmed by sources within the company.
Although the same report does note that the popular star wasn’t in Las Vegas, the location of the show, as of Friday night. (July 1st) However, a “significant portion” of the roster was also yet to arrive due to appearing on SmackDown.
