Update On Asuka & Bayley’s Potential WWE Return Dates

Asuka and Bayley on the floor

A new report has provided potential return dates for former WWE Women’s Champions Asuka and Bayley who have both been out of action for several months.

Asuka has been on the shelf since Money In The Bank on July 18th. While little information on Asuka’s status has been forthcoming, the star posted a photo on social media in August of herself with her arm in a brace. Since then, there have been few updates regarding the status of her injury.

Around the same time in July, Bayley suffered a torn ACL during a training session at the WWE Performance Center ahead of WWE’s return to live touring.

Neither superstar has been seen on WWE TV since their injuries and rumours of a return for the two at the Royal Rumble in January did not come to fruition.

Now, PWInsider has reported that returns for both Asuka and Bayley could happen sooner than later. According to the report, Asuka is expected to return from shoulder surgery by the end of the month, but this is dependent both on her being cleared for action as well as when she will be inserted back into storylines.

Meanwhile, Bayley is said to be expected to return from her knee injury by the end of March. This would mean that both women could well be ready to go in time for WrestleMania 38 which takes place on April 2nd and 3rd.
