Becky Lynch was absent from WWE television since May 2020 but that was rectified after she made her shocking return at WWE SummerSlam. As Ringside News exclusively reported, The Man’s return was also a last-minute change of plans as Ringside News exclusively reported.
Lynch was immediately put into the Smackdown Women’s Championship match against Bianca Belair and won in just 26 seconds with a Manhandle Slam. Fans were understandably quite upset over Lynch squashing Belair.
It was ultimately a call made by Vince McMahon to help elevate Becky Lynch further and since then Becky Lynch has remained a heel, which is something she herself requested.
While speaking to BT Sport, Becky Lynch revealed that she only came to know she would face Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam just a couple of days before the pay-per-view.
“I actually really only knew what I was doing, probably, that I was going to have that match probably a day or two before. I got a call on Monday, SummerSlam was on Saturday, that there was a possibility that I was needed to fill in for a match, but I didn’t know entirely until Friday.[Bianca Belair] was preparing for a different match. She had her sights set on Sasha. She also, she trusted me. That was her first mistake. She’s new to the game, she hasn’t been watching her entire life. DTA [Don’t Trust Anybody]. It’s not personal, it’s business. I want to be the champ. If you’re not in there to be the champ, then get out. She should have been a bit more suspicious.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair at WWE Extreme Rules. We will have to wait and see if Belair will be able to reclaim the title or not.
