Becky Lynch is one of the top superstars in WWE and has been so for several years. She recently lost the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 38 in a spectacular match against Bianca Belair.
Big Time Becks had a great transformation in her character towards the beginning of 2019. She transitioned from a happy-go-lucky Irish Lass Kicker who fought her way to relevancy into the established and charismatic “The Man” Becky Lynch.
Becky returned at SummerSlam 2021 after having taken maternity leave and straightaway won the SmackDown Women’s Championship. She became a heel and continued her domination and her attitude as Big Time Becks is always spot on.
Lynch made her first appearance on RAW on this week’s episode of WWE’s red brand after losing to Belair at WrestleMania 38. WWE posted a video when Lynch was making her entrance and a fan was showing thumbs down to her. What happened next was quite funny as the six-time world champion got in the face of the fan as he changed his thumbs down immediately into a wave. The video can be seen below:
Is Becky Lynch versus Asuka officially announced for WrestleMania Backlash?
Asuka returned this week on RAW to a rousing ovation and confronted Becky Lynch. The Empress of Tomorrow last wrestled in the 2021 Women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match before being out of action due to a shoulder injury.
This week on RAW, Asuka came to the ring and said she is will stop Lynch because “no one is ready for Asuka.” In the end, she flicked Lynch’s nose to add insult to injury.
Lynch was left confused as well as irate. She swung an arm at Asuka but she ducked and unleashed a roundhouse kick which Lynch did well to evade. Lynch left the ring as Asuka celebrated her return to WWE in the ring with the WWE Universe cheering her on.
As of now, WWE hasn’t made the match official but it’s almost certain that these two are going to face each other at WrestleMania Backlash. You can check out the 2023 WrestleMania Backlash match card here.
