Bayley, 28, whose real name is Pamela Martinez, suffered a separated left shoulder when she was thrown out of the ring.
“We found out after her evaluations this morning that Bayley will not be at SummerSlam“, Rome said. Earlier today, Top Rope Press reported Bayley’s SummerSlam match was in “jeopardy” following a shoulder injury from last Monday’s match against Nia Jax. Bayley is at tonight’s RAW from the Air Canada Centre in Toronto and will comment about the incident.
However, Strowman may have gotten the last laugh with one key moment in the match, and by last laugh, we mean we’ve been laughing consistently ever since it happened.
Rome also revealed there will be two triple threat matches to determine the No. 1 contender to Alexa Bliss’s RAW Women’s Championship.
Triple Threat Qualifying Match: Sasha Banks def. Emma and Alicia Fox by Emma submitting to Sasha Banks’ Bank Statement to advance to next week’s #1 Contender’s Match. The two winners from those matches will they face off in a singles match on August 13 to determine a new No. 1 contender for Bliss. But now there is official word on the extent of Bayley’s injury and the news is not too encouraging. The WWE has not yet provided any estimated recovery time for Bayley, but she’ll likely be gone for at least four to six weeks even in the best case scenario.
