Becky Lynch Opened Raw By Getting Suspended And Fighting Stephanie McMahon

USA Network

The short-term build to WrestleMania will apparently go on without Becky Lynch.

In Monday Night Raw’s opening segment, Stephanie McMahon confronted Lynch, where she told The Man that she’s required to get her injured knee checked out and cleared before WWE can allow her to compete. That could put her WrestleMania match in jeopardy, McMahon explained.

Lynch told McMahon she couldn’t take her moment away, and the No. 1 contender for Ronda Rousey’s WWE Raw Women’s title was subsequently suspended until she is checked out by a doctor. The Women’s Royal Rumble winner proceeded to attack McMahon, smacking her around the ring and locking in the Dis-Arm-Her before officials pulled her away.

The latest shift in storyline comes one week after Lynch appeared on Raw, called out Rousey and challenged her for the Raw Women’s title at ‘Mania. Lynch was slated to face off against Rousey at Survivor Series, but their match was called off after Lynch suffered a concussion thanks to a punch to the face from Nia Jax.

Lynch’s highly-anticipated showdown with Rousey has been teased for months now, and while it looks like we’ll get that when WWE hits Metlife Stadium in April, it’s very possible their match takes yet another detour, according to the latest rumors.
