We previously reported that signs supporting Becky Lynch were confiscated during the Hell in a Cell PPV last night. In an update to the story, Fightful has reached out to the fan who handed out the signs for more information on what exactly went down.
Twitter user @kimberlasskick was the fan who had the signs taken. She had the following to say to Fightful, confirming she actually spoke with Lynch who encouraged her to distribute the signs. However, it appears security gave her no reason for taking the signs when that did happen.
“I had my stack and my friends handed out some but they were on the non tv side. I went to do it and a arena security took one and said let me borrow one. He took it (and) looked like someone who worked for WWE, because I’ve seen that guy at shows. I was putting more down, and then a few minutes later someone else from the arena came to me and said (they’d) been authorized to take these. That’s all they said. I took ones from the non-TV side back and hid them until the promo for the match started and handed more out (laughts). But they didn’t seem to take any from then on. Not sure if they just didn’t like how many I had or what.”
“Before the show I asked if she thought it’d be cool and she said she (said) ‘absolutely do it.’ The crowd liked (them). Anyone who got (them) held (them) up, really. My guess it was because I had so many, but who knows? I really wanted to get every seat on the floor, but I got to about 4 rows which was good enough for TV at least. When I first got there one guard was like ‘are you gonna hand those out?’ I told him the story, and the guard was like ‘no problem.’ Five minutes later another guard took one.”
It remains to be seen what does happen moving forward, though now that Lynch is Champion there would likely be a lot of pushback by fans if the company continued to stop signs representing her from being shown during programming.
