Bayley has been on the sidelines with a torn ACL since July when she was chain wrestling in the ring with another WWE star at the Performance Center.
At the time, WWE had made it mandatory that all wrestlers participate in training sessions ahead of their return to live event touring. The former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion shared this photo of her walking with crutches:

A typical timetable for a return from this injury is 9-12 months if not longer. Before going down with the injury, Bayley was originally slated to challenge Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship in an I Quit match at the Money in the Bank event.
