WWE has a lot of things in the pipeline and Edge vs Seth Rollins is still slated to go down at SummerSlam. The company dropped a huge hint about that upcoming feud this week on SmackDown and it was not lost on any fans.

Edge approached Seth Rollins backstage as The Messiah was complaining about the Rated R Superstar stepping in and getting a Universal Title shot from Reigns. Rollins’ line was that Edge didn’t deserve it. After a little stand-off, Edge then went to the ring where he called out the Tribal Chief.

The WWE On Fox Twitter account went out a short clip from this confrontation with a caption reading: “WE NEED THIS MATCH NOW!” Tons of fans agreed.

Fans blew up Twitter with comments about Edge vs Rollins. This match is slated to happen and the build is already starting. It’s not every day that WWE gets long term booking right, but it seems like they have a handle on this situation.

Bayley injury: More details on major injured suffered by WWE star

GIVEMESPORT 11 July, 2021 - 08:37am

WWE revealed yesterday that Bayley would likely be out of action for nine months, but remained relatively vague regarding the type of injury that Bayley had suffered, and how she'd actually done it. 

PWInsider is now reporting that Bayley has suffered a torn ACL, which the site note she picked up while training at the WWE Performance Center.

The word making the rounds is that Bayley has suffered a torn ACL.

It was suffered earlier this week during training at the WWE Performance Center

The site notes that her "knee popped" while she was working in the ring with an unnamed WWE star, with staff within the company being told that Bayley had torn her ACL:

Those that we've spoken to in WWE say that Bayley was training with another WWE star this week and that her "knee popped," and we've since heard that staff has been told it's a torn ACL.

As noted on Twitter, we're told the injury was a freak accident that happened while chain wrestling at WWE's mandatory return to road Performance Center training.

Fightful spoke to two members of the SmackDown roster who praised Bayley for helping to "carry the company" during the COVID-19 era, with the former NXT star being cited as someone who was "easy to deal with" despite "more always being asked of her".

Many have speculated that Bayley's injury could speed up the returns of Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks, who haven't been seen on WWE TV since May 2020 and April 2021 respectively, but are both likely to return soon.

We would like to, once again, extend our best wishes to Bayley. Everyone here at GiveMeSport hopes to see her back in the ring before too long.

At CBS, the series debut of Secret Celebrity Renovation came in at an 0.3 in the same time slot. Nischelle Turner hosts the reality show, which — as the title underlines – gives a celebrity a chance to reward someone from their lives with a home renovation. In the first episode, Whose Line Is It Anyway? regular Wayne Brady helped out his Aunt Lily by renovating her Orlando, Fl. home. It was the night’s most-watched program with 2.84 million viewers.

A new Love Island was the middle of the CBS Friday sandwich, tallying an 0.3, although its overall audience declined. A Blue Bloods rerun closed the night.

NBC had a mixed night, with an American Ninja Warrior repeat clocking in at an 0.3. However, Dateline had the runner-up demo crown on the evening, scoring an 0.4 for its examination of a double murder case.

ABC had Shark Tank and 20/20 repeats in a quiet night.

The CW had a Gossip Girl special, celebrating the return of the series, which is airing on HBO Max. The network closed the night with a repeat of Whose Line Is It Anyway?
