While it has been 2 weeks since Becky Lynch returned to WWE Programming after suffering an injury before Survivor Series, the SmackDown Women’s Champion hasn’t returned to ring.
Now latest reports reveal that there is a good reason for it and the reason why the Man hasn’t made her in-ring return yet is because she hasn’t been medically cleared.
According to Wrestling Observer Newsletter, the Champ has been cleared for the concussion but she still hasn’t been cleared for the nasal fracture she suffered.
Becky suffered the injury right before the Survivor Series PPV where she led a SmackDown invasion on Raw and was punched by Nia Jax.
No word yet on when exactly she will return to the ring but as we noted before WWE announced a match between Charlotte and Asuka for next week’s SmackDown.
So it appears that the company doesn’t expect her to be cleared by then but since her match at TLC is still on, she could be expected to return to the ring at the PPV itself or right before it.
