As you will surely have seen during this year’s edition of Summerslam, which aired last Saturday from the Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Becky Lynch made her return to the WWE rings, after more than a year of absence from the WWE, due to her first pregnancy.
Having given birth to little Roux a few months ago, Becky Lynch is hastily back in top shape, resuming her hard work at the gym, almost immediately after her pregnancy. At Summerslam, the first success in the ring for The Man immediately arrived, which literally managed to “squash” her opponent, or to beat her in record time, snatching her the title of Friday Night Smackdown champion.
While fans celebrated Becky Lynch’s unforeseen return at SummerSlam, Bianca Belair sadly had to take a crushing loss as she dropped the SmackDown Women’s title in a 27-second squash match. Bianca Belair gave the Irish superstar a lot of respect during the chat with Denise Salcedo by stating that “The Man” was a legend in the making.
Latest news on Bianca Belair
“Right now, I’m just trying to collect my thoughts,” revealed Bianca Belair. “Everything happened too quickly. I was ready to fight Sasha Banks, and Becky came out, which was an amazing moment.
I’m happy to be a part of that, but I lost my title, and right now, I’m just emotional. I feel defeated. It was bittersweet, Becky Lynch, what she has accomplished inside and outside the ring. She is a legend in the making.”
The question that a lot of WWE Universe fans and a lot of insiders asked themselves immediately after the WWE Summer Big Four closed was “why did WWE want to lose its champion like that?” Obviously, everyone thought that the company’s management wanted to immediately take off the status of The Man, upon his return after months of absence, but apparently this is not the case.
As revealed in the last few hours by the well-known site Wrestling Observer, through the words of the well-known Dave Meltzer in one of the site’s Newsletters, it would seem that WWE has sought the sympathy of the public towards Bianca Belair with this move.
As stated by Meltzer, in fact: “People see Belair’s defeat as a sinking, but the idea was to get her to lose so quickly to get her sympathy, with the average fan’s idea that she didn’t deserve such a defeat.”
Basically, as when Lana was thrown on the commentary table every week on Monday Night Raw by Nia Jax, according to Vince McMahon et al, a wrestler when physically and athletically destroyed should receive the sympathy and respect of fans, to regardless of what their character or in-ring performance is. Will it be the right strategy for the fans?
