Bayley Unlikely For SummerSlam
WWE.com’s preview for RAW notes that Bayley is ‘unlikely’ to be cleared to wrestle Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women’s title at SummerSlam.
The Huggable One is allegedly suffering from a shoulder injury sustained during her match with Nia Jax last week. She is set to be reevaluated on Monday.
ECW Original Taz is not buying it however – he thinks the story is a work because Michael Cole was so quick to refer to the possible injury on commentary. He had the following to say on his podcast:
“I don’t know if she is [hurt], and this is why. What jumped out to me was Michael Cole on play-by-play, as soon as she went outside the ring… as soon as she landed, or came out of the ring, he mentioned her shoulder very quick. You don’t normally do that, unless you know it’s a legit bad injury, or you’re told to say it, or you know where the story’s going. So, to me, that kind of jumped out a little bit. Some would say, ‘well nothing happened, she got thrown kind of underneath the bottom rope and rolled out.’ You can actually hurt yourself. If you land on the side of your shoulder, like right on the side, you can pop your shoulder out.
“I also don’t think she’s hurt, legitimately hurt, because they had their social media team and video of her with the trainer doing some mobility tests, and then had her iced up and crying and stuff like that. I don’t think they would have shown those tests while she [was hurt]. I think cameras are off limits when someone’s legitimately hurt, from what I remember about working with WWE. So, where they’re going with her, I’m not really sure.”
