Becky Lynch made her return at SummerSlam and that was a big surprise for fans. The fact that she walked out of Allegiant Stadium as SmackDown Women’s Champion and a heel rubbed many fans the wrong way. This was the result of many plans changing around, but that’s typical in WWE.
Ringside News exclusively reported a timeline of events surrounding Becky Lynch’s return. She was on the show, and then taken off, but then the final decision was made for her to replace Sasha Banks when The Boss couldn’t make the biggest party of the summer.
According to Fightful Select, Bianca Belair and Carmella were both informed of Becky Lynch’s surprise return ahead of time, but the news was “officially” secret from most of the people backstage.
Lynch’s name did not appear on internal run sheets, and there were segments added to WWE Summerslam to adjust for the time missed in the Sasha Banks vs. Bianca Belair match that couldn’t end up happening.
Becky Lynch and Seth Rollins’ daughter, Roux, was also backstage. Lynch was reportedly very happy to greet her baby as SmackDown Women’s Champion as soon as she could.
