A heel-ish health update from Bayley

Even from a hospital bed, Bayley’s making it clear none of us should expect a hug when she comes back from her ACL tear sometime next year.

It’s not clear if this is pre or post surgery. Given how clear-eyed she looks, I’m guessing it’s a before pic.

No need to guess who’s kayfabe fault she thinks her training injury was though...

News of Bayley’s injury broke last Friday, and prompted multiple changes to the SmackDown Women’s title picture. Carmella replaced her as Bianca Belair’s next challenger, and what was an “I Quit” match at Money in the Bank became a regular match on tonight’s SmackDown - which as Bayley reminds us, is WWE’s first in front of a capacity crowd since before the pandemic.

What other surprises await us on the July 16 SmackDown? And how will our Role Model blame us for them?

Join us in our live blog for the show at 8 pm ET for answers to the first question, and stay with us every day for more on the second... and for updates on Bayley’s comeback.
