Becky Lynch’s SummerSlam return was the result of a plan changing and then that plan changing once again. Many fans are still cheering The Man despite her apparent heel turn. If you ask Lynch, she didn’t turn heel, because she just got smarter.
While speaking to the New York Daily News. Becky Lynch opened up a bit about her transition on the main roster. Some might view her heel turn as a controversial choice, but she only sees that she was able to capitalize on a moment to show her intelligence in the ring.
“I’ve just come back and now I feel like suddenly there’s this conversation that I’m not doing things the right way, but I don’t know what anybody expects me to do. Do you want me to come back and toy with Bianca and give her more of a chance to look like she’s got an opportunity? Or would I come back, knowing that I haven’t done this in a while, and be smart about it and blindside her? I just did what an intelligent person would do. If you haven’t been wrestling in a long time, then you’ve been strategizing. You’ve been strategizing because you haven’t been in the ring with this person, so then you are going to do something different. You are going to catch them off guard. And now suddenly I’m the bad guy because I came back even better than ever? I don’t really understand this talk about me being a heel. I haven’t changed. I just got smarter.”
Lynch blindsided Bianca Belair at SummerSlam and won the SmackDown Women’s Title with one Manhandle Slam, but that isn’t the end of their story. The two will meet again at Extreme Rules, and we have to wonder what the result will be next time around.
