WWE Upset Over Fans Booing Bayley

On the August 7th, 2017 edition of Monday Night Raw, Bayley addressed her injury to her shoulder. The injury would in up leaving her out of her RAW Women’s Championship match against champion, Alexa Bliss.

As Bayley was talking about her injury, the fans began booing her. The booing is a bit odd considering what a beloved babyface Bayley is and has become from NXT and now on RAW.

It is being reported that there are people backstage in WWE that were upset over the fact that fans were booing her while she was talking about being injured.

It’s hard to imagine the WWE wouldn’t be upset with arguably the top babyface woman on the roster getting booed. Bayley seemingly responded to the booing fans with a terrific tweet.

Of course, this is all speculation, and at the moment, it is not known if this is true. It was very strange though that the crowd would boo Bayley while she talked about her real life injury.

Fans around have complained about the way WWE has booked Bayley since coming up to the main roster. The final straw for these fans is when she refused to hit Alexa Bliss with a kendo stick in their Extreme Rules match.

Toronto crowds are notorious for booing babyfaces though, and maybe once Bayley returns to RAW, this will be a non-issue. Unfortunately, if fans continue booing the former RAW women’s champion, there may have to be some changes to her character.

Bayley could be due for more of a mean streak or possibly turning heel. We saw Bayley have a mean streak against Emma, Nia Jax, and Sasha Banks but still kept her lovable character. Bayley, hopefully, will recover quickly and become the legend she has the potential to be.
