WWE has a lot of things going on, and they need to make sure that many people are happy. The women’s division saw a match nixed from SummerSlam when the Slim Jim Battle Royal was introduced. That being said, it doesn’t seem that many people are worried about that at all.

Ringside News was told by a tenured member of the WWE backstage team that the women’s locker room in a very good mood at SummerSlam. That positive morale is thanks to the triple threat match and also Rhea Ripley’s spotlight.

Ringside News exclusively reported that the decision was made to nix Becky Lynch vs Trish Stratus from the SummerSlam card because WWE is seeing a huge financial gain from the Slim Jim Battle Royal match. The company is open for business, but they also didn’t want to limit the time of any matches for SummerSlam, because WWE is trying to produce shorter events.


It was previously reported that “neither woman was thrilled with the adjustment, which came into focus in the days before their Raw match was set up.” This is obviously an ongoing situation, and now their match will take place in Winnipeg on RAW. Becky Lynch has since dropped shady tweet about the matter.

Ringside News then reported that this is not a widespread sentiment, so to say that the “locker room” is upset is an exaggeration. It turns out that there is no real issue at all, although Becky Lynch is obviously upset. That is not widespread throughout the women’s division at all.

The WWE Women’s Division has another big reason to be happy. A beloved former Superstar is on her way back to the company. You can click here for that big spoiler.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
