Becky Lynch lost the SmackDown Women’s Title at WWE TLC and it was a very controversial decision. Some fans might not be happy about it, but sometimes being a champion can hinder a Superstar’s possibilities.
Mike Johnson explained on PW Insider Elite audio why it was actually a good thing that Ronda Rousey walked down at the conclusion of their Tables, Ladders, and Chairs match to make sure Asuka won the SmackDown Women’s Title.
“It makes sense for a lot of reasons. Number one, it removes the title from Becky Lynch. Number two it allows them to begin the build for Becky Lynch going into the Royal Rumble and winning it in order to face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania. It allows Charlotte to have someone to chase. It allows Charlotte and Ronda Rousey to have rematches down the line.”
WWE is always going with no offseason. Therefore, they need to make sure their Superstars have plenty to do. Sometimes that means they have to lose a match. At least Lynch dropped her title in a way where she didn’t have to suffer a pinfall and lose that heat too.
