Backstage Notes on Bayley’s Call-Up and Okada Attending WWE SummerSlam


– WWE originally planned on promoting Bayley to the main roster in September, however the recent void left by Sasha Banks seems to have expedited the process. As previously mentioned, Bayley was not scheduled to enter directly into the women’s championship scene, but those plans might have been scrapped due to the injury suffered by Banks.

– As noted last week, NJPW Star Kazuchika Okada was backstage for WWE Summerslam, leading many to wonder whether we might see the former IWGP Champion inside a WWE ring. For what it’s worth, Okada was reportedly there as a special guest of NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura. Okada is signed to a binding contract with NJPW, and isn’t allowed to negotiate with WWE or anyone else.

Below is a photo of Okada and Nakamura, along with fellow Japanese wrestling star Hideo Itami:
