Vince McMahon ordered that WWE Superstars need to go to the Performance Center for additional training before they hit the road again. There were a few exceptions about who was required to get this training, but Bayley was not exempt. That led to her current injury status.
The former SmackDown Women’s Champion is injured and she will be out for 9 months after needing knee reconstruction surgery. That is a terrible spot for her to be in, and she blamed the fans in a video promo. During Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer said that Bayley was injured at the WWE PC while doing that required training that Vince McMahon required.
“She got it Thursday while training. You know that training stuff that was mandatory for everyone, because there are exceptions? Almost everyone, where they wanted everyone to go back to the Performance Center and train to get in shape for the road tour, that’s when she got hurt.”
It wasn’t noted what Bayley was doing when she heard a pop in her knee, but she wouldn’t have been there if not for Vince McMahon’s order. Hopefully, that training will be worth it for some Superstars, because it cost Bayley dearly.
What’s your take on Bayley’s injury? Are they calling up so many NXT Superstars to fill her spot? Sound off in the comments!
