As noted, Bayley is currently out of action for 9 months with a torn ACL. Sonya Deville is scheduled to announce a replacement for her match with SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at the WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view during tonight’s SmackDown on FOX episode.
In an update, PWInsider reports that Belair is scheduled for an angle with Carmella on tonight’s SmackDown. That will lead to Carmella challenging Belair at the pay-per-view, or at least a future bout between the two.
Carmella is currently booked for the Women’s Money In the Bank Ladder Match.
