During this year's edition of SummerSlam, WWE wanted to put a lot of meat on the fire, staging several returns of great Superstars such as Brock Lesnar and Becky Lynch, both absent from the rings of the McMahon-owned company, for over a year.
After giving birth to her first child, Becky resumed work assiduously in the gyms of the USA, returning in great shape in no time and appearing much sooner than expected, in the Summerslam ring. The thing that left WWE Universe fans even more shocked beyond her return was the fact that the beautiful Irishwoman managed to snatch the title of Smackdown Women's Champion from Bianca Belair, the champion of the blue show until tonight, in a squash match that made several fans of the company turn up their noses, right after the pin.
Backstage news on Becky Lynch
On Saturday at SummerSlam, Sasha Banks was removed from her scheduled SmackDown Women's Title match against Bianca Belair, with Carmella being announced as her replacement. In what was one of the most exciting moments of the night, Becky Lynch made her WWE return and eliminated Carmella from the equation.
The former Women's Champion then laid down the challenge to Belair for an impromptu Title Match. Apparently, according to what was stated by various sources online, it seems that the return on the television screens of "The Man" had decidedly come about in advance as described by the plans of the company.
The forfeit of Sasha Banks, however, framed the McMahon company with a titled match without an opponent and therefore it was necessary to return in advance and almost forced Becky Lynch, who arrived in a hurry to take a position on the roster of the blue show.
Until a week ago, in fact, plans for the title of Smackdown champion were completely different for the Big Four of the federation, with Becky, however, who found herself ready and in the right place when the fateful call came.
As revealed by Ringside News' Steve Carrier, WWE's initial plans were to bring Becky Lynch back to the scene no earlier than late October, ahead of the company's Draft, and then build big plans for her at the Survivor Series.
The absence of Sasha Banks did not allow it, hastily changing all the plans of the titled women's tour of the Friday night show. The WWE Universe refused to boo her and the gimmick of The Man was born. Lynch would go on to headline WrestleMania 35 and defeated Charlotte and Ronda Rousey to win both the RAW and SmackDown Women's Championships.
