WWE shocked the world by announcing 19 participants at a time for the Royal Rumble 2022 match from the women’s division. In general, these names are used for surprise elements which is a key aspect of the Rumble match. But for some reason, WWE wanted to announce the star-studded field set for this year which features multiple former WWE Divas Champions and WWE Hall of Famers.

Speaking of Royal Rumble 2022, another former Women’s Champion has recently teased a return to the event. It’s Bayley who offered a joke about entering the women’s Rumble match so she can eliminate Kayla Braxton. This appears to be the continuation of an on-screen as well as the social media feud between these two WWE talents. Bayley hasn’t forgotten about the feud during her injury.

Fans hopeful to see Bayley at Royal Rumble 2022

The longest-reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion has been out of action since last July as she is dealing with a fatal knee injury. Many fans are hopeful that she will be a surprise entrant in the upcoming Royal Rumble 2022 match and thereby fill up the big void on the blue brand roster. However, there’s no confirmation is available on her current status.

A few weeks ago Bayley gave an update on her injury but she didn’t reveal anything about her impending return,

“My knee is doing great, my leg’s doing great, my ankle’s doing great, my shin is doing great, my hip is doing great, my mind is doing great…so, I mean, it’s only a matter of time. I’m not gonna tell you when, and I don’t want all these idiots watching to know when, but I’m gonna be coming back soon, maybe, you know…you better be ready, better be ready.”
