• Triple H Made A Big Change To Vince McMahon’s Plan At SummerSlam 2022
As seen in the opening match of SummerSlam 2022, Bianca Belair defeated Becky Lynch to retain the RAW Women’s Championship.
After the match, both women showed respect to each other and hugged.
Former Women’s Champion Bayley then made her return from injury and brought former NXT wrestler Dakota Kai and former NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai with her, to confront the “EST of WWE”.
Becky then turned babyface and backed up Bianca.
According to PWTorch, Vince McMahon wanted to keep Becky as a heel after her SummerSlam loss, but new Head Of Creative Triple H decided to make a change and turn Becky babyface:
“I can now confirm Becky was not gonna turn if Vince McMahon was still in control. That was a Paul Levesque call. I just got confirmation on that.
She would have been a heel as we’re talking right now if McMahon was still running things. So, one big change early on there.”
