This previous Monday on Crude, the stage was set for an extreme contention between Trish Stratus and Becky Lynch when Stratus cost Lynch and Lita the Ladies' Label Group Titles, consequently turning on Lynch. However, the highly anticipated match between these two superstars will likely occur sometime soon.
Even though the storyline may hint at a match at WrestleMania Backlash, WWE wants to keep the heat between Stratus and Lynch going. On the most recent episode of "Wrestling Observer Radio," Dave Meltzer reported that WWE has decided to schedule the Becky Lynch vs.
Trish Stratus match for SummerSlam, the company's most important summer event. Since the WWE Hall of Famer made her return to the ring, there had been talking of Stratus turning heel. Initially, she wrestled alongside Lita and Lynch, assisting them in winning tag team gold against Damage CTRL.
At WrestleMania 39, WWE scheduled a six-woman tag match, with Stratus ensuring that the babyfaces would retain their titles. On this week's Raw episode, WWE switched gears and performed the Stratus heel turn. Although the arc may have appeared hasty, WWE is prepared to proceed more slowly before putting this feud to bed.
Strategic SummerSlam Match Delay
There are numerous reasons why this development is noteworthy. Since SummerSlam is in August, it shows that WWE is confident in keeping fans interested in this rivalry for a long time. Second, this decision suggests that Stratus will continue to work for WWE for a sufficient amount of time to participate in a program leading up to the premium live event.
To effectively promote and sell the story of this high-profile match, ensuring Stratus's presence will be crucial. Fans can anticipate a compelling narrative in the months leading up to SummerSlam as WWE prepares for the huge matchup between Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus.
The fact that the company decided to postpone the match until their biggest summer event says a lot about how much they trust these two exceptional performers to draw crowds. The wrestling world will eagerly await this storyline's conclusion, and Lynch and Stratus's final confrontation will undoubtedly be memorable.
