• Backstage News On The New #1 Heel In The WWE Women’s Division
At SummerSlam 2021, “The Man” Becky Lynch made her surprise return to WWE.
Bianca Belair was scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Sasha Banks, but Sasha was unable to compete.
This led to Carmella being announced as Sasha’s replacement. However, Becky then came out and attacked Carmella.
Becky then challenged Bianca for the Title and beat her in 27 seconds to become the new champion.
Denise Salcedo interviewed Bianca after SummerSlam and here’s what the former champion said about her loss:
“Right now, I’m just trying to collect my thoughts. 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.”
According to PWInsider, Becky will now become the #1 heel in the WWE Women’s Division and will feud with Bianca on SmackDown.
During her interview with Kayla Braxton after her Title win, Becky said the following:
“The Man is back, and it feels good.”
