The former WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been away from the company since she suffered an injury during her match against Bianca Belair at WWE SummerSlam. She had suffered a dislocated shoulder that has kept her away from in-ring action. ‘The EST’ avenged her quick defeat against Big Time Becks at last year’s SummerSlam and defeated Lynch to retain the RAW Women’s Championship.
Becky Lynch makes an appearance at AW New York
During the interview at AW New York, Becky stated that the worst match of her career was the one that she wasn’t nervous for:
“I want to get people involved emotionally. How do I want them to feel after this? How do I get them to care? I think when your focus is on the job, on the task at hand, then it is a lot easier to forget about all the extra noise.
All the extra pressure that is on you. Of course, when you are going out there in front of 100,000 people for WrestleMania you are nervous.
But it is a good kind of nervousness. I’ve only ever not been nervous for one match and it was the worst match I ever had. So now any time the nerves get to me I’m like ‘oh this is good’.”
Following the match at SummerSlam, Damage CTRL (Bayley, IYO SKY, and Dakota Kai) appeared and surrounded the two stars in the middle of the ring. Becky turned babyface and stood by Belair’s side and the heels retreated. On the next episode of WWE RAW, Damage CTRL attacked Becky backstage as a way to right Lynch off of television as she recovers from the shoulder injury.
