By the end of last night’s “Raw,” Becky Lynch had endured a rough 24 hours.
First, at Sunday’s Hell in a Cell, she seemingly won the Raw Women’s Championship after hitting Asuka with The Manhandle Slam, but was foiled by Bianca Belair who capitalized on the triple threat rules to retain her title. Lynch took to social media to vent about her bad luck, claiming she was robbed.
Subsequently, on Raw last night, Lynch’s patience was tested when Akira Tozawa, Reggie, Tamina & Co. ran into the ring during his match with Dana Brooke. Once Brooke rolled up Tozawa to begin her 5th reign as 24/7 Champion, a furious Lynch demanded an impromptu title match while threatening to beat the entire WWE 24/7 cavalcade – even the men. Just when she seemed to be close to a win, Asuka rushed to ringside and held Lynch’s foot from the outside, giving Brooke enough clout to claim the biggest win of her career. . Lynch was actually pinned by Dana Brooke.
Lynch reacted to the series of events by making drastic changes to her Twitter and Instagram accounts. In addition to blacking out her profile and header photos, Lynch changed her location to “Void” and her bio to “Unknown.”
With Rhea Ripley set to challenge Bianca Belair for the Raw Women’s Championship at Money in the Bank, Lynch is out of the title picture just yet.
Lynch is rumored to face WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus later this summer at either Money in the Bank or SummerSlam. The two women have exchanged gunfire over the past few months, with their last exchange taking place on Sunday night.
