Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus were set to have a match at SummerSlam, and the two were finally going to pay off the feud that was started after WrestleMania. Now, fans will have to wait, but Becky Lynch isn’t forgetting about the fact that her match was pulled.
WWE SummerSlam 2023 is all set to thrill fans with eight matches scheduled for tonight. However, the show has faced backlash from fans due to the controversial decision of removing the highly anticipated Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus match from the card.
Initially, the match was planned for the event, but it was reportedly taken off due to time constraints, with the intention of moving it to an upcoming episode of Raw in Winnipeg, two weeks from now. That match was moved after the company announced the Slim Jim battle royal match.
Yesterday, there were reports of Becky Lynch being present in Detroit for the show, but she swiftly debunked those rumors, stating that she was not in attendance. After all, as Ringside News exclusively reported, WWE is making a ton of money off that Slim Jim battle royal.
On the day of the event, Becky Lynch expressed her disappointment on Twitter, taking a shot at being excluded from the lineup, particularly after the intense feud between her and Stratus had been building up for months.
Making lemonade with all these lemons I’ve been given.
