Bayley suffered an ACL injury and she will be out of action for nine months. This was terrible timing, and Bayley had something to say about her injury backstage at SmackDown this week.
Bayley appeared in a WWE digital video promo that the company dropped during SmackDown this week. She was seen on a couch backstage nursing her knee that was currently locked in a brace.
She didn’t seem happy at all while looking down at her knee. She said “I know what you’re thinking, and you’re thinking this sucks,” because everyone wanted to see her beat Bianca Belair for her title. Now she is hurt and out of action for months.
Suddenly, Bayley turned it around and said that fans “don’t care at all,” and she blamed her injury on fans as well. Bayley said that she was training to be better at Money in the Bank when she was injured, and that is all the fans’ fault.
Then Bayley said that she “doesn’t give a damn” who they get to replace her at Money in the Bank, “because they’re not going to be as good as me.” It seems like Bayley might not be seen for a while, and she’s departing as a bitter heel.
