Bayley's injury, which will keep her out for nine months, has elicited reactions from the likes of Sonya Deville, Alexa Bliss, and others in the wrestling industry. As previously stated, the former Smackdown Women's Champion has a torn ACL and will be out for the rest of the year. .
As the story unfolds, Bayley was training with another WWE star, and she got her knee "popped."
At the same time, she was chain wrestling with the other star during WWE's mandatory return to the Performance Center.
Sources also said that her injury might end up causing plans to change due to the star's absence in the series, adding that it was a "freak accident."
Smackdown roster talents were also frustrated how WWE's lack of talent depth right now has left them scrambling to find a replacement who will fight with Bianca Belair at "Money in the Bank."
