Becky Lynch kicked off Monday Night time Raw following her SummerSlam Showdown with The EST of WWE, Bianca Belair, sharing an emotional second with the Raw Ladies’s Champion.
What made this section the second of the evening, although, was Becky explaining how she had misplaced her approach during the last 12 months as Large Time Becks – and that now she was mainly going to be “The Man” once more.
This was a wise, artistic resolution by Triple H.
Lynch is likely one of the most beloved members of the roster and preventing towards that during the last 12 months, as entertaining as Becky was, simply by no means made a lot sense.
