If Becky Lynch’s quick title win at SummerSlam came across as a heelish move, that’s because that is the direction for her going forward.
PWInsider is reporting that Becky Lynch, one of the most beloved wrestlers by the fans, is going to be a top heel on SmackDown. Lynch was part of the Raw brand when she left to take time off for her pregnancy last year but she is now officially on the blue brand.
As noted earlier, Lynch had been backstage at some recent shows, including the Money In The Bank pay-per-view and it was expected that she would be returning sometime in the next few weeks or the next couple of months.
Vince McMahon had to change plans because of Sasha Banks not being cleared and the decision was made to put the title on Lynch at SummerSlam.
As the top heel on the women’s side, Lynch will initially feud with Belair. As previously noted, Vince McMahon had his reasons to have Belair lose in 30 seconds. Click here for an update on Sasha Banks and for more on why Belair was booked to lose quickly at SummerSlam.
