As she should be. WWE has undergone a lot of changes over the last several months as dozens of wrestlers have left the company. This has led to quite the shakeup to what we have seen in WWE as of late, but that is just on the television side. The releases have led to several other changes, with a lot of them being in the lives of the wrestlers still in WWE. One of them has been hit pretty hard by the changes.

During a new interview with Metro UK, SmackDown’s Bayley has been hit hard by some of the recent releases. Without mentioning any specific names, Bayley mentioned that several of the wrestlers were close friends and very talented. She also mentioned that it was going to be hard to not see some of the released wrestlers backstage as they went around on tour. Bayley is currently scheduled to challenge SmackDown Women’s Champion Bianca Belair at Money In The Bank.

Bayley has had a pretty strong last year. Check out some of her recent efforts:

Opinion: I can’t say I blame Bayley for having a rough time with these releases as these are the people who have been around her for a long time now. There were several wrestlers who were released and Bayley had worked with some of them for a long time. That is a hard thing to see happen, especially when things are about to pick up all over again with the return to touring.

How has Bayley’s year gone? What is next for her? Let us know in the comments below.
