WWE Total Divas that beat Charlotte for the Raw women’s title in February will not capable to challenge Alexa Bliss for the Raw Women’s Championship at Summerslam this month.
Bayley was recently announced by WWE social media account that, she has a separated shoulder which will hamper her challenge match with Alexa Bliss on Monday Summerslam.
The former NXT women’s champion defeated Sasha Banks on the July 24 edition of Raw to become the No. 1 contender for Bliss’ title. Doubt about Bayley’s SummerSlam availability arose after last week’s Raw. She gave an interview to WWE revealing she had hurt her shoulder in her match with Nia Jax.
The injury comes at a terrible time for Bayley, because SummerSlam was shaping up to be the biggest moment of her career since arriving on the main roster last year.
However, she beat Charlotte for the Raw women’s title in February, but Banks’ involvement in her and Charlotte’s feud arguably outshined her title reign. Bayley’s moral fiber in NXT was built around her being the ultimate babyface, and having Banks interfere to assist her in matches undercut that dynamic.
Avenging her defeat to Bliss at tremendous Rules in June and defeating the champion on her own at the summers biggest pay-per-view would’ve been a great way to build Bayley back up in the women’s division.
On the other hand, Monday night’s edition of Raw will feature a pair of Triple Threat matches within the women’s division. The two winners from those matches will they face off in a singles match on Aug. 13 to determine a new No. 1 contender for Bliss.
