In fact, previously she took to social media to express her gratitude for the team of doctors working with her for a faster recovery.

Bayley is currently a free agent

WWE did not announce The Role Model’s name during WWE Draft 2021. This essentially meant that she was a free agent and was free to choose which brand she would return under.

Now, if she wants to resume the feud that she left hanging by when she was sidelined, it’ll have to be Raw, considering that’s where Bianca Belair is working.

On the other hand, The Role Model has already hinted at wanting to clash with her former best friend, Sasha Banks. Now, it’s only a matter of time before Bayley reveals which brand she’s actually coming back under.

Undoubtedly, if The Role Model and The Boss are put in a feud again, it’ll be an extremely important one for the women’s division. They’re both a part of the four Horsewomen of WWE, and having both of them claw their way towards the Championship, which is held by Charlotte Flair (another Horsewoman) is going to be a significant storyline for the division.

Only time will tell where Bayley returns, and how she returns! Heel or babyface?
