Good decision to give a title to the most talented Irish ginger on the roster.

She's spent most of her main roster time putting over others and management were probably really impressed in the manner she did this in.

Now for the first legit time she might actually get properly pushed.

She deserved it. Kinda glad Alexa Bliss got the #1 contendership. It should be kinda cool seeing their feud. Bliss is who I would want to see as NXT Champion right now (Asuka on the main roster).

So after some short time off she's back after in her words having "something removed" that wasn't to do with an in ring injury.

She probably shouldn't have said that because now people are speculating that she's probably had an abortion.

I assume she's catholic so if she is that cannot be the case on religious beliefs, but what else could she have been off for......

The abortion was my thought as well. If it were a cyst, or something like that, she'd need more time off before taking bumps.

Quote Becky Lynch returned to in-ring action at the https://www.ewrestlingnews.com/tag/wwe-live-event" rel="nofollow - WWE live event on Wednesday in Detroit, MI at the Little Caesars Arena by teaming with Naomi to defeat Riott Squad members Liv Morgan and Sarah Logan.

Lynch has been out of action due to filming for her role in “The Marine 6” alongside The Miz and WWE Hall Of Famer Shawn Michaels.

I suspect they will want her back on TV as of next tuesday. No point keeping her off longer.
 
She will be built up as one of the favourites for the Royal Rumble match, but I don't think she will win it.
 
Becky is bound to get a big pop on return, as one of the most popular women on the E roster, no matter what show.

She has fast become one of the most popular female wrestlers on the roster not just for her wrestling skill but her overall personality as well. 


I could see her coming close to winning the royal rumble however the spot of winner will ultimately go to Asuka.

Quote Becky Lynch vs. Ruby Riott: Becky hits a dropkick on Ruby early on, and Ruby rolls outside for a breather. Becky follows her outside and they fight around ringside. They go up to the apron, but Ruby knocks her down then throws her into the fan barricade. Back int he ring, Ruby hits some knee drops on Becky on the mat. Ruby drops Becky with a lariat, but Becky fires back with a clothesline of her own. Becky hits an elbow to the face of Ruby then goes up top, but Sarah Logan distracts her from the apron. Ruby comes back and drops Becky then pins her with her feet on the ropes, but the ref sees and stops counting. Becky looks for the Disarm-her, but Sarah Logan and Liv Morgan distract on the apron. Ruby rolls up Becky for a two count, then Becky comes back and rolls up Ruby for the three count.

Winner: Becky Lynch

- Sarah and Liv attack Becky after the match, but Becky fights them off and throws them both out of the ring.

It's a shame E don't have any legit competition, so she can go work somewhere that appreciate her better.
 
Single handedly making a three team faction look weak is a positive, but it was a nothing segment.
 
I hope she wins the battle royal and gets back in the title picture.

Quote Becky Lynch vs. Mandy Rose vs. Sonya Deville in a Women’s Money in the Bank qualifier. They cut to a break early in the match. [C] The former Absolution members worked together during the break until Deville knocked Rose to the mat. Graves played cheerleader for Rose and wasn’t happy when Deville punched her. In the end, Lynch made Rose tap to the Disarmer…

Becky Lynch defeated Mandy Rose and Sonya Deville in 8:00 to qualify for the Money in the Bank match.

Glad she won and lets hope it's the start of a renewed push for her.
 
Through all her months of shit booking, crowd support has stayed very strong with her and hopefully management have noticed that.
 
She would definitely be my pick to win the briefcase and be the top Smackdown female babyface.

Yeah im still reserved on Becky - mainly due to, as you said, shit booking for a long time.

Hopefully she gets her time to shine properly during the match

Glad my girl Becky won neither of those two girls in rose or Deville are ready for this type of match up.

Out of everyone who's in the match my wish is for either Becky to win or Ember Moon both can be good champions for their brand .

Becky consistently wins, just not when it matters. They need to hurry up and pull the trigger on some big matches for her and soon.

Glad to see Becky got a nice clean win in a good TV match against Charlotte. The match was good, they had fun so the viewers had fun, and I was quite pleasantly surprised to see Becky get the win too. I know she wins a fair amount of matches, but it's infrequent enough that it comes as a nice surprise when it does happen. This was actually one of the better women's matches I've seen on the main roster in the last couple of years.

I'm starting to think that Asuka will take the title from Carmella and build a slow burn to a big feud with Lynch in the lead in to Wrestlemania.

You think Lynch, huh? You don't think the storyline might go back to Asuka vs Charlotte for Summerslam?

Hey I'm all for Asuka vs Becky. I think there's a lot to work with there, and it definitely gives them both something good to do, it's a feud I think a lot of fans would enjoy, and it also explains the nice clean win by Becky over Charlotte this last week.

Sounds good to me. I hope it pans out.

It can go a number of ways but if we're going to see Charlotte vs Rousey at Mania then I can only assume that it will be Rousey winning the Raw title and Charlotte winning the Rumble.

What possible matches after that are left for Smackdown? Asuka vs Becky, definitely. Becky vs Carmella? Not a mania worthy match. Naomi vs one Iiconic? Doesn't pan out. 

I do agree that we'll see Asuka vs Charlotte again down the road though. Summerslam is a good call but both women need to be rebuilt a little after the usual "top-women-lay-down" Smackdown women's division booking that happens this time of year.

This time last year Naomi and Natalya were getting big pushes, ahead of Charlotte and Becky. Basically the same thing is happening now.

Yeah there's a typical rise and fall with everyone, men, women, tags, doesn't matter the division, but TBH I kind of thought we'd see Charlotte go on further, but after her loss to Becky I'm not so sure.

Asuka's loss at wrestlemania really hurt her momentum though so I think I'd probably reserve judgement on Charlotte's future until after that match. If Asuka loses, well... man I don't know. A broken and beaten Asuka vs a likewise beaten Charlotte doesn't seem anywhere near as appealing, either.

I think you may very well be right on Asuka bouncing back, and then starting something to culminate between her and Becky.

I wonder if Becky might get the Money in the Bank? My assumption has always been that this year would see a Raw woman take it, like Natty, but Becky taking it, and turning heel on Asuka could be interesting too considering that Becky has yet to play a heel on the main roster.

I'd almost hate to see Becky turn heel though because she's such a fun babyface with all her little jokes. I popped when she and Charlotte clinked tea in the middle of their match as a way to say "we're still cool with each other". I thought that was a fun touch, and things like that are ALL Becky and the kind of thing only she brings.

I don't see Becky turning heel. There's no need for it. Face vs face isn't a problem so you should always have more faces than heels in a division.

The reason I assume she'd turn heel is because that's just what 9 out of 10 MitB holders do. They either are heels to begin with, or they turn heel during the process of holding and cashing in.

Because of that fact, the numbers would certainly suggest that Becky would turn heel. She might not if she wins, but she'd be the exception to the rule.

Rollins vs Balor was a great face vs face mini feud if you ask me.

Looking at reason briefcase holders reveals very few turns. The last face was Ambrose. Rollins turned face if anything. Same with Ziggler. The last heel turn was Orton, wasn't it? Before that Punk? You turn a heel face more often than a face heel if you ask me.

You're using crowd monitoring logic, not booking logic. Just because they got over with the fans and they started to like them, doesn't mean they're booked baby. Heels and faces are booked just as black and white today as they ever were.

Ambrose baby, Cena baby, RVD baby

Orton turned, Kane turned, Bryan turned, Punked turned (2nd win)

Corbin heel, Sandow heel, ADR heel, Sheamus heel, Ziggler heel, Carmella heel, Edge heel, Punk heel (first win), Swagger heel, Kennedy heel, Miz heel.

On one hand, yes some of those guys got fan support and "effectively" turned babyface, but they were still booked heel. Just like despite the fact that Reigns is "effectively" the biggest heel in the business today, he's still technically a babyface because that's how he's booked. So while I get what you're saying, what I'm saying is that overwhelmingly the MitB winner ends up booked heel. And I wouldn't want that for Becky Lynch, despite the fact that I'm sure she'd be good at it.

Quote Becky Lynch is backstage warming up. She's up next against Sonya Deville.

- Becky Lynch vs. Sonya Deville: Sonya misses some kicks early on and Becky tackles her. Sonya starts to mount a comeback, but Becky stuns her with a kick. They trade arm holds until Becky sends Sonya through the ropes down to the ringside floor. Sonya pulls Becky outside and they fight at ringside over the announce table. Back in the ring, Sonya comes back and takes Becky down for a two count. Sonya works on keeping Becky grounded with a head lock. Becky fights up to her feet and comes back with a t-bone suplex for a two count. Sonya comes back with a knee strike out of the corner for a two count of her own. Mandy Rose causes a distraction from ringside and Sonya continues the offense. Becky grabs Sonya and knocks her into Mandy on the apron, then locks Sonya in the Disarm-her for the win via submission.

Winner: Becky Lynch

- Becky celebrates in the ring as Mandy recovers on the floor from having her partner slammed into her.

Another strong win to continue to build her back up as a credible title challenger.
 
Especially as she was on her own and was smarter than multiple people.
 
She's got to have a title run this year.

Quote Women's Champion Becky Lynch is backstage arriving at the arena. She appears to have bruising around her eye.

- Paige comes out to the ring and she introduces the entire Women's SmackDown roster one by one. She introduces Becky Lynch last, and says Becky will be picking her replacement to face Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series. Becky gets on the mic and says she took a beating last night and that never stopped her before -- but this time the medical team won't clear her to wrestle on Sunday. Becky says she could still kick Ronda's ass even with her injury, and that Ronda isn't tough she's lucky. Becky says now she has to pick her replacement for Survivor Series, and she chooses Charlotte. Becky and Charlotte shake hands and hug, then Becky heads to the back.

I wasn't a fan of her having her Stone Cold Becky Lynch persona she's had lately watered down.
 
I didn't want her saying thank you to fans and didn't like her hugging Charlotte either.
 
She should have ignored the cheers, told Charlotte she picked her but doesn't like her still and walked off.

I thought she did a pretty good job of staying true to her new persona while tweaking it only very slightly to allow for a subtle babyface turn.

Becky is currently the most popular woman on the roster it would be senseless of WWE to keep her heel, especially when they have so many top ladies who could easily turn heel to fill the void, Charlotte, Sasha, Ronda, Asuka just to make a few who could all be more effective as heels.

You can ignore the fan reaction sometimes when it’s not too overwhelming, Kevin Owens for example always gets cheers but not to the point of where it demands a face turn as he still gets enough of a heel reaction too, Becky’s popularity however is currently greater than most of the top faces.

They should have kept her exactly how she's been since her turn. She can still be cheered but be heelish or at least tweener. 

Apart from how tough she is, that's another reason she's like a female Stone Cold. He too acted heelish for a long time yet was technically a babyface with his pops.

Gotta say Rebecca Quinn looks pretty hot even covered in so much blood LOL

Yeah I wish she had chosen Asuka instead of Charlotte. She got the loudest pop from the fans too when Becky was staring them all down. Charlotte... it's just too complicated for Charlotte to be in this spot right now IMO. Asuka's in a slump, feed her to Rousey and give Asuka the chance to win back some momentum in a good looking loss. Turn Asuka heel while you're at it because she's a far better heel than babyface, and she's a great babyface and she's great at comedy too. Give us something completely different, not a consolation prize with a babyface that's not over, that's an even bigger waste of Rousey's box office.

Unfortunately Asuka has lost too much of her aura that she had in NXT, I would turn her heel and try to rebuild her before giving her a high profile match with someone like Rousey. On Smackdown she’s been reduced to a mid-card clown.

What they’ve done by inserting Charlotte makes the most sense, they can now simply postpone Becky vs Ronda until Wrestlemania.

Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I like the idea of turning Rousey heel this weekend by having her and Baszler take out Charlotte. It could make a fantastic storyline.

Rousey vs Charlotte opens the show, Rousey comes down, just a tad late after her name is announced, and then Charlotte is announced but doesn't come out. The cameras go back stage and Charlotte is laid out and the cancel the match, and announce that Charlotte cannot compete due to injuries. 

A couple matches later, they go back stage and Rousey is petitioning Triple H saying the fans paid to see Rousey fight and here she is, it's not fair to the fans to short change them seeing Rousey in a match just because the faux horsewomen can't stay healthy long enough to make to their matches. She says that it just sucks that there's no other women's champion she can face off against. To which Triple H says, give me a little time, I have an idea.

Another match goes by and Rousey is announced to the ring. Triple H comes out on stage and says that Rousey gave him idea. That since Survivor Series is the one night a year where the brands compete, and since the women's champion from Smackdown is currently injured and unable to compete, and so is her replacement, he's making the decision to insert a different women's champion into the match to face off against Rousey. 

Out comes NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler. They put on a 50/50 match, things get heated, and Rousey just barely pulls out a win. After being pissed at first, Baszler pantomimes that Rousey just barely beat her and next time Baszler will get the 1, 2, 3. They hug, feel good moment, yay, all that crap, and then up on the tron you see backstage footage from when Rousey was getting announced to the ring at the start of the show. Rousey is arguing with Charlotte, you hear the announcer call Rousey's name, and Rousey says "Fine, I don't have time for this. Shayna." And walks away as Shayna attacks Charlotte from behind.

The camera goes back to Shayna & Rousey in the ring. Shayna's showing off her muscles and looking smug and full of herself, and Rousey shrugs looking a bit sheepish like "Meh, so, yeah that happened." Then they make eye contact with each other and both burst out laughing, and leave the ringside area together.

I don't mind the hug. Yes it was a clear character break but those two are like sisters. "Nobody beats up my sister but me" can justify the change.

Besides, Becky's heel turn has been a row back since day one anyway. Crowds want to cheer her, WWE let them and now people are complaining about it.

Smackdown has the most badass champ in Smackdown history. So being horribly injured made her rethink a few things? So what? Maybe she realised Edge was right? Maybe all those times Charlotte tried to change her mind paid off? Not every decision has to be made on camera. 

I'm not sure about Rousey vs Lynch at mania because I want Lynch to stay on Smackdown but at the same time I really want the match and it's a worthy main event for Wrestlemania. Lynch has that 'people's champion' aura around her. They should capitalise on it.

So I would have Charlotte tap, Rousey refuse to relinquish the hold (turning heel in the process) and then Lynch run out and chase her off.
