Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair opened SummerSlam with an epic battle for the Raw Women’s Championship. Fans noticed that Becky worked through most of the bout favoring her shoulder. It was eventually revealed that Lynch separated her shoulder during the matchup.
There have been reports that Becky Lynch might need surgery to fix the damage. That would mean she could miss significant time. The timing is unfortunate, but WWE has used the opportunity to move the heat from Bianca Belair for causing the injury to Bayley, Dakota Kai, and Iyo Sky, who attacked Lynch on last night’s Raw.
On today’s Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer talked about Becky Lynch’s injury situation. He noted that the shoulder looked to be in bad shape. Meltzer believes Becky will miss months while she heals.
“I saw a photo and it looked really bad. Like, when I saw the photo, it’s almost like, man, you know, it’s like… This would be something that you would… If it was a fight, they would have stopped it immediately if the referee was close enough to see that, but in wrestling, they don’t, they rarely stop it and she gutted her way through and even in her interview, she said it was incredibly painful to do that match, and it looked it.
You know, when you’re talking about like severity of the separation and everything, the photo that I saw, it looked pretty bad and… Out months. Timing is what it is. They immediately transferred the heat, instead of the idea that she got it in the match – it was from that Glam Slam, being thrown on her shoulder, right? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Yeah, and there’s no point in putting the heat on Bianca Belair, so they created that thing to put the heat on Bayley and Dakota and Iyo.”
The unfortunate injury will keep Becky Lynch out of action for a while. In the meantime, Bayley and her new faction will be the ones to blame. Everyone at Ringside News is wishing Becky a speedy and full recovery.
