Becky Lynch made a stunning comeback to the ring at the WWE SummerSlam as she went on to leave the WWE Universe in shock as well as Bianca Belair.
Belair, the EST of WWE and the WWE SmackDown women’s champion, was scheduled to defend her title against The Boss Sasha Banks. Belair made her way down the ring as the crowd backed her to retain the crowd.
The announcers then said Banks was not going to compete at WWE SummerSlam and Carmella would instead face Belair in the championship match. The audience for the ‘The Biggest Party of the Summer’ did not take to the decision lightly and voiced their disapproval.
Then the music hit and WWE Universe were left shocked as ‘The Man’ made her way down the ring. She lapped the ring, soaking in the applause.
Lynch had relinquished the WWE RAW title after she announced her pregnancy, revealing to the WWE Universe that the title was inside the Money in the Bank briefcase that Asuka had won.
Lynch tied the knot with WWE superstar Seth Rollins in June and the couple had welcomed their daughter, named Roux, in December last year.
Back in action, Lynch made easy work of Carmella and then turned her attention to Belair. Lynch challenged and Belair accepted. As soon as the title match started, it was over as Lynch reached out to shake Balair’s hand and then proceeded to slam the champion and pin her to be the new WWE SmackDown champion.
