The Man is back in WWE.
Big Time Becks won the women’s SmackDown title at SummerSlam and she will defend the title against the woman she took it from at Extreme Rules this Sunday, Bianca Belair.
Lynch’s return to WWE after giving birth to her and Seth Rollins’ first child Roux came suddenly after Sasha Banks was unable to attend her scheduled match.
So what was the original plan if SummerSlam hadn’t happened?
“They called me at the last minute, you wouldn’t have [seen me on this UK tour]”Lynch told talkSPORT.” Oh my gosh, I thought I was going to be back by ‘Mania’. I was ready to come back through ‘Mania. But listen, I got the call at SummerSlam, I stayed ready. I stayed ready!
“I think the original return date was October,” Lynch explained.
Bayley went without a match at WrestleMania 37 and after playing for WWE during her toughest time, many fans were angry that Bayley didn’t get the spot she deserved.
Bayley ended up being beaten by the Bella Twins in a throwaway segment, but has there ever been any intention for Lynch to face Bayley?
“It had been thrown out, yeah,” Lynch confirmed.
When we said we were angry and sad that this hadn’t happened, Lynch said, “Me too.”
Belair is one of a new wave of women who have escalated over the past year and which also includes Rhea Ripley.
Is there a world where The Four Horsewomen – Lynch, Charlotte Flair, Bayley and Sasha Banks – could be a real stable on television?
“As a team? My God, I don’t know. We all like to fight against each other. There is so much history between all of us that I don’t know.
“One thing I consider is that the enemy of my enemy is my friend. So now we see a lot of girls coming in and disturbing the order and I don’t know if we [The Four Horsewomen] like that.
“So I prefer Charlotte upstairs… No, I can’t say that!” Maybe I prefer Sasha and Bayley to one of those newcomers or Rhea Ripley and whatever, you know? Maybe, I’m just saying if this was to be an idea, maybe this is the way to go.
With her husband Seth Rollins facing Edge recently, it made us curious if this could be a way for Lynch to tease Beth Phoenix out of retirement for a dream match.
“Yeah, I’ve been trying to fight Beth Phoenix for a long time,” Lynch revealed. “Maybe that would be a way forward, we’ll see if we can bring her back.”
