• WWE Edits Fan Reaction On This Week’s SmackDown Live
Becky Lynch turned heel by attacking Charlotte Flair this past Sunday at SummerSlam 2018. On Tuesday night at Smackdown Live, she came out to explain her actions. She went on to say that the fans did not support her and Charlotte Flair stole her spotlight.
This was obviously a heel promo which aimed to get the fans to hate Lynch. But WWE’s plan backfired and Lynch was cheered by the crowd while Flair got a negative reaction.
Due to the reaction of the fans in the Barclays Center, WWE has not only edited out the fan response to Lynch’s promo but they also cut out Lynch burying the fans in the first place.
You can check out the video from WWE’s official YouTube channel below:
It was also noted that WWE increased the negative fan reaction for the SmackDown Women’s Champion in the video and they re-edited the segment to include a shot of Flair looking at the crowd in disbelief.
Bryan Alvarez said on Wrestling Observer Radio that this could be an indication that WWE is finally considering Becky Lynch as a top babyface in the company.
