WWE brought out a few surprises during SmackDown’s season finale. One big appearance didn’t happen, but it could have. Becky Lynch was in the Amway Center during the friday night SmackDown, but she didn’t appear on camera.
In a report by ringsidenews.com Becky Lynch was reportedly backstage with Seth Rollins on the season premiere episode of SmackDown on FOX. Becky Lynch had not been seen on WWE TV since relinquishing the RAW Women’s Championship on the Red brand’s episode that aired on May 11th.
Becky Lynch announced her pregnancy on the episode of RAW on May 11th before unveiling Asuka as the next RAW Women’s Champion. It was later revealed that Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were expecting their baby to be born in December. Becky was backstage with Seth Rollins.
Lynch was inarguably one of the company’s biggest names before being forced to take a hiatus due to pregnancy. ‘The Man’ enjoyed a 398-day reign as the RAW Women’s Champion before she had to drop the title. While Becky Lynch’s absence was seen as a huge blow to the company, the likes of Bayley, Asuka, and Sasha Banks have stepped up to the plate and continued to maintain the relevancy of WWE’s women’s division.
Becky Lynch is due to have her and Rollins’ bundle of joy in December. We’ll have to see how soon she can get back into the ring, but she doesn’t plan on motherhood stopping her career. She misses her WWE family and has been quite open about how much she hates sitting around at home.
