Recently, WWE has announced that Bayley suffered a shoulder injury during her match against Nia Jax on Raw last Monday, and as a result her SummerSlam match is in jeopardy.
Below is that WWE.com had to say regarding the injury suffered by Bayley:
Bayley suffers a shoulder injury Monday night on Raw
During her match with Nia Jax on the July 31 edition of Raw, Bayley suffered an injury to her right shoulder.
The former Raw Women’s Champion was evaluated by medical personnel, but the official diagnosis was inconclusive due to the amount of swelling involved. Bayley has been told to rest the shoulder until next week, at which point doctors are hopeful that the swelling will have sufficiently gone down so that she may be reevaluated and a firm verdict can be reached.
“Everything just tensed up around it,” Bayley told WWE.com shortly after her match on Monday night. “I’ve never had an injury like this before, so I can’t really know what it is. I guess we’re gonna see.”
Dr. Chris Amann told WWE.com, “We’ve determined the injury is shoulder-related, and she will be going under further diagnostic testing later this week to determine the extent of the injury and also establish a timetable for recovery.”
On Wrestling Observer Radio last night, before WWE’s report came out, Bryan Alvarez speculated that it looked like Bayley legitimately injured her shoulder. He said that Bayley did seem to hurt her shoulder during the match after she was thrown around by Nia Jax and at one point went outside for several seconds as the ref checked on her.
