However, it was later revealed that Becky Lynch separated her shoulder and would be out of action for a couple of months. This forced WWE to change their plans and use Alexa Bliss and Asuka to team up with Belair.
Since then, the two groups have been at each other’s necks. Despite Damage CTRL’s efforts, Bayley hasn’t been able to get the better of Bianca and win the RAW Women’s Championship. This heated rivalry was set to culminate in a WarGames match at Survivor Series.
While Damage CTRL found allies in Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair’s team was still missing one person even after Mia Yim joined them. However, yesterday night on SmackDown, Bianca revealed the fifth member of her team was none other than the returning Becky Lynch.
The two groups then engaged in a brawl that resulted in Belair’s team standing tall at the end of the altercation. WWE has now released the unseen backstage footage before Lynch made her entrance.
Team Belair and Team Damage CTRL are set to square off in the first-ever women’s WarGames match on the main roster. Given the nature of the match, fans can expect a brutal affair. Stay tuned to Ringside News for live coverage of Survivor Series.
