In a touching display of camaraderie and support, Bayley, one of WWE's esteemed stars, has expressed her heartfelt reaction to a positive update from the recently injured WWE Superstar, Dakota Kai. The unfortunate turn of events for Damage CTRL saw their Women's Tag Team Championships slip from their grasp, as they were defeated by Becky Lynch and Lita earlier this year.
Although Lynch and Lita subsequently lost the titles to Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan, the latter's reign was abruptly cut short due to injury.
Dakota Kai's Recovery Update: Progress and No Crutches
The injury occurred during the May 12th episode of WWE SmackDown, as Liv Morgan and Dakota Kai defended their titles against Damage CTRL.
While Dakota Kai suffered a torn ACL during the match, she revealed today that she had made progress in her recovery and is no longer reliant on crutches. Sharing her positive news on Twitter, Dakota Kai wrote, "6 pm EST tonight.
I'm off crutches; come celebrate with me as I throw them off a building* *metaphorically." This uplifting update prompted Bayley, aged 33, to respond with tearful emojis on social media, displaying her genuine joy and support for her injured colleague.
Further displaying their solidarity, Bayley and IYO SKY, another WWE star, recently sent a video message to Dakota Kai, extending their good wishes and encouragement during her recovery from last month's injury. Damage CTRL burst onto the scene at last year's WWE SummerSlam, making their presence known by surrounding the then-RAW Women's Champion, Bianca Belair, in the ring.
However, despite their initial momentum, the group has faced setbacks in recent times. IYO SKY's quest for the RAW Women's Championship against Bianca Belair at Backlash fell short, while Bayley and IYO SKY's endeavor to capture the vacant Women's Tag Team Championships ended in defeat, with Shayna Baszler and Ronda Rousey emerging as the victors.
In the video message, Bayley expressed her affection for Dakota Kai and eagerly anticipated her return to the ring. "We love you," Bayley conveyed. "Come back, baby, come back." With Bayley scheduled to compete against Michin in a Money in the Bank qualifying match on WWE SmackDown this week, fans anxiously await the outcome, hopeful that her victory will help get Damage CTRL back on track.
In professional wrestling, where rivalries and competition often take center stage, it is heartening to witness the genuine bond and encouragement shared among these athletes. Bayley's heartwarming reaction to Dakota Kai's positive update serves as a reminder of the supportive community within the WWE, where competitors come together to uplift and inspire one another in the face of adversity.
