Becky Lynch Possibly Injured, News On SummerSlam Surprises

At the biggest party of the summer for WWE, Becky Lynch might have been injured. Also, backstage news on the surprise SummerSlam appearances.

Becky Lynch Possibly Injured

Becky Lynch seemingly turned face at SummerSlam [1]. This came after losing to RAW Women’s Champion Bianca Belair.

Basically, Lynch saved Belair from a three on one beating. Although, there might be a bigger story.

Lynch seemed to have injured her shoulder or arm during the match. During the post-match segment and when walking to the back, Lynch was escorted by the medical team.

Lynch returned to WWE literally a year ago at SummerSlam. Before that, she took a hiatus to give birth to her first child.

We should know by the end of RAW if Lynch is indeed hurt and what that means.

Saturday’s SummerSlam marked the first time a WWE pay per view ran without Vince McMahon running the show. Of course, Vince retired from WWE after a bunch of stories were published about hush money scandals.

Already, fans are noticing a change in WWE [7]. After the opening match, some familiar names appeared on TV.

First, Bayley appeared. Then, she was joined by Dakota Kai and Io Shirai, who were making their main roster debuts.

Fightful Select [8]was able to go over details about the opening SummerSlam match. 

To begin, WWE has changed Shirai’s name to Iyo Sky. She has not been seen since NXT Stand And Deliver in early April.

Sky’s contract was actually supposed to be up very soon. Since she has been off TV for so long, many thought she was leaving the company.

Currently, there is no information on what kind of deal Sky has signed.

Perhaps even more shocking than Sky’s debut was Kai appearing. Back in April, she was part of WWE making massive cuts to the roster [9].

Triple H Made Decisions Vince McMahon Was Against

Kai worked some dark matches before her release, but Vince McMahon was not impressed. Add in her age and the then boss did not think she was worth keeping around.

Triple H has always been a fan of Kai. Once he gained more power, many assumed he would try to bring Kai back.

Like with Sky, we are still waiting on information about her contract. 

As for Bayley, we knew she was returning soon. In fact, many thought she would have appeared at WrestleMania or Money in the Bank.

Bayley has not wrestled since suffering a torn ACL in July of last year [10]. The injury occurred because WWE sent most of the talent down to the Performance Center for practice.

Also, it should be noted that Vince was pitched the idea of Bayley returning with a stable. He passed on the notion, but Triple H is going a different direction.

It also should be noted that Kay Lee Ray and Raquel Rodriguez were discussed to be part of the group. Rodriguez is already on the main roster and Ray remains in NXT as Alba Fyre.
