UPDATE 2: A new report has some additional information on the injury that will keep Bayley out of action for nine months. Fightful Select reports that according to people in WWE, Bayley was training with another WWE star and her knee “popped.” The site notes that the injury may actually end up causing plans to change for some incoming talent. The injury is said to be a freak accident that happened while she was chain wrestling with the other star during WWE’s mandatory return to the Performance Center.

The site notes that a couple of Smackdown roster talents were frustrated how WWE’s lack of talent depth right now has left them scrambling to find a replacement opponent for Bianca Belair at Money in the Bank. One of the two noted that WWE “did it to themselves” and pointed out that Bayley helped to carry the company through the pandemic. They added that Bayley has always been easy to deal with despite WWE asking more and more of her.

UPDATE: Mike Johnson of PWInsider reports that “the word making the rounds” is that Bayley suffered a torn ACL while training at the WWE Performance Center.

ORIGINAL: WWE has announced that Bayley suffered an injury while training and as a result, will be out for nine months. She has been pulled from her I Quit Smackdown Women’s title match Bianca Belair. A replacement will be named on tonight’s episode of Friday Night Smackdown.
