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.
While speaking on the Out of Character podcast, Becky Lynch talked about her squash match against Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam and explained why she squashed her.
“That’s a great rivalry – we like both of these guys. How do we make them not like one of them? She’s a company girl, let’s do this quick. I know a lot of people were upset, ‘Oh, if they were going to do this, they should’ve had a long match.’ Well, if we had a long match and then I beat her, then I just beat her. That’s not good – that’s not good for her. But if she’s robbed, and we take something from her and she doesn’t expect it, then we want to see her succeed? Oh, we want to see her succeed.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks at WWE Crown Jewel on October 21st in Saudi Arabia. It remains to be seen whether she will be able to retain the title or not.
