Becky Lynch was absent from WWE television since May 2020 but that was rectified after she made her shocking return at WWE SummerSlam last year. 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 Mark Andrews: My Love Letter to Wrestling podcast, Bianca Belair opened up about the backlash after she got squashed by Becky Lynch. Belair saw it as a learning experience in the end.
Honestly, I feel like I constantly have to check my perspective in WWE and look at the bigger picture. Losing in 26 seconds, I have to admit I was quite nervous afterwards in what was going to come out of it and then just going and seeing all the support afterwords, like let me show them who I am without a title. It showed that I know who I am and I can still be the EST without a title and I still have people behind me. In a way they made me somewhat bigger.”
Bianca Belair is set to compete at WWE Elimination Chamber in Saudi Arabia as she will fight for a shot at the RAW Women’s Championship at the event on February 19th. We will have to wait and see whether she will end up winning the Elimination Chamber match or not.
