• Top WWE Star Inspired By Roman Reigns’ Current Run
“The Man” Becky Lynch returned at SummerSlam 2021 and defeated Bianca Belair in an impromptu match to win the SmackDown Women’s Champion.
Becky is going to be a heel on SmackDown now.
According to the Wrestling Observer, Becky requested WWE Officials to return as a heel, because she was inspired by Roman Reigns’ current heel run as the Universal Champion:
“Lynch had asked to return as a heel. Some have said in the company she was inspired by Reigns, and the reality is to many, being a heel is more fun.
Of course, the last time she tried to go heel, she became the most popular wrestler in the company and the hottest woman wrestling star the company had ever had.”
