Becky Lynch and Natalya opened up Summerslam this year with a submissions match. It popped the crowd something fierce when Natalya nearly won the Raw Women’s Title, but in the end, The Man would win the match.
Brad Shepard reports that people were surprised backstage at the positive reaction that Becky Lynch garnered from the Toronto crowd. After all, she was facing a true Canadian like Natalya.
Becky Lynch is incredibly popular, but WWE was obviously expecting her to get booed heavily. She might be Canada’s New Hero after all.
