A showdown between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey was among the top reasons many fans were excited to watch WWE Survivor Series. Lynch is out, but Sarah Hirsch believes it may be a blessing in disguise.
In a tale where ascension and mishaps collides, WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has had a hell of a week. After an incredible statement to end Monday’s Raw, fans learned of the unfortunate concussion and broken nose Lynch suffered courtesy of Nia Jax.
Charlotte Flair was handpicked by Lynch to take on Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series – a match many fans and insiders expected to see as the dream match of the WWE Women’s Division that would be a number one contender to main event WrestleMania in April. But the turn of events of Lynch’s injury and the quick thinking of WWE’s Smackdown roster has created a bigger story.
The Women’s Division is coming off of a successful Evolution PPV. Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair stole the show in the first Last Woman Standing match, where both women were taken to their limits in those career-defining performances. Fans have been behind Lynch since her shocking heel turn at SummerSlam – something that backfired in WWE’s faces. And now that there’s a switcheroo with Flair, it opens up the door further for Lynch.
Of course with Lynch, Flair, Sasha Banks, and Bayley these four women are history makers as the “Four Horsewomen.” They have all had a hand in changing the game in the WWE Women’s Division. Flair and Banks’ feud in 2016 has taken them to the first Women’s PPV main event at Hell in a Cell. Banks and Bayley’s historic feud produced one of the greatest Women’s matches of all time followed with a Iron Woman match at NXT Takeover: Respect.
We can’t forget when Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Sasha Banks made their main roster debuts in Atlanta in 2015 (I was there). It set the main roster into a tailspin. The revolution made every woman better. Everyone stepped their game up and took the division to places where it never went before.
And while Lynch has had an incredible hand in all of these moments, perhaps no one deserves that WrestleMania main event more than The Man herself.
Her mean streak has been unprecedented with epic matches and a balls on attitude of being The Man in the WWE Women’s Division. It’s catchy and fits the bill for Becky. Fans have been comparing Lynch’s meteoric rise to that of Stone Cold Steve Austin – an WWE icon who is bigger than the business. Monday’s events are proof that Lynch’s legacy is breaking major ground.
Becky Lynch is white hot, which should continue into the fall following with WrestleMania season. With WrestleMania becoming the platform for dream matches and opportunistic ventures, why not have Lynch and Rousey duke it out in Met Life Stadium? Not only does Rousey have the ability to fill the stadium, but with her and Lynch having unfinished business, this match would be money.
It is proven that fans are behind Lynch, who as of Sunday morning only has 16 items listed in WWE Shop. This is atrocious considering her rise to Women’s Division Immortality. Change has certainly come for the Lass Kicker even if it takes awhile for the company to see her true potential.
All of this being said take notice that Becky Lynch is just getting started. Once she returns, there is no stopping The Man.
Do you think Becky Lynch’s removal from WWE Survivor Series is a blessing in disguise?
