Multiple Superstars Return During SummerSlam

Multiple Superstars Return During SummerSlam

July 30, 2022 0 By Tim Jarrell

WWE shocked the fans right off the get go.

SummerSlam tonight kicked off with a great match between Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch for the RAW Women’s Championship. I capped off a year-long storyline with this time at SummerSlam Belair retaining her title against Lynch. Yet that was only the beginning of what went down tonight.

After Belair retained the RAW Women’s Championship, shared a moment in the ring with Lynch, and was celebrating, the music of Bayley played as we saw the former multi-time Women’s Champion make her return from injury. Bayley had been out for just a little over a year.

Bayley was not the only person to return tonight though. Bayley returned from injury, and then we saw Dakota Kai actually return to the company. Earlier this year on April 29th, it was announced that Kai had been released from the company. The rumor was that she was not looking to stay with the company when her contract expired so WWE essentially let her out early. True or not Kai is back with WWE and has been promoted to the main roster.

Finally, we saw the return of Io Shirai. Shirai had been out of action for a little while dealing with an injury and it was thought she would return soon to NXT 2.0. Instead, WWE brought her up to the main roster. Interestingly though, the entire time Corey Graves kept calling her Io Skye. We do not know if her name has actually been changed or not.

The three women all got in the ring together and got in the face with the RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair. With it looking like it was going to be three-on-one Becky Lynch would jump into the ring to aid the women that just defeated her. Bayley, Kai, and Shirai would all get out of the ring as Bayley was talking smack from ringside. It looks as if these three women will not be a unit on Monday Night RAW.

If we do hear anything else on Bayley returning from injury, Dakota Kai returning to the company and on the main roster, and anything on Io Shirai returning from injury and on the main roster, we will have it here and on the PWUnlimited YouTube Channel.
