Becky Lynch was gone from WWE television since May of last year but that was rectified after she made her shocking return at WWE SummerSlam. 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.
It was ultimately a call made by Vince McMahon to help elevate Becky Lynch further and since then Becky Lynch has remained a heel, which is something she herself requested.
While speaking to the New York Post, Paul Heyman talked bout Becky Lynch turning heel. Heyman stated that it is ultimately up to the fans to decide how they want to react to Lynch.
“If the audience wants to embrace Becky Lynch as she shows this side of her personality after taking a year and a half off, after having a baby, becoming a mother, the responsibilities and the obligations and accountabilities that go along with the role in her life then if the audience wants to embrace Becky Lynch, embrace Becky Lynch. And if the audience finds that is a saltier side of her personality that’s worthy of their contempt and disdain then they will bestow upon her a reaction that is akin to that emotion.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her Smackdown Women’s Championship against Bianca Belair at WWE Extreme Rules. We will have to wait and see if Belair will be able to reclaim the title or not.
