Becky Lynch limped out of the Royal Rumble event, after winning the Women’s Royal Rumble. She was unable to win the Smackdown Women’s Title earlier in the night.
Becky appeared on SmackDown LIVE last week wearing a knee brace and was heavily limping and favoring her left knee. Charlotte Flair then attacked Becky from behind and focused on her left leg, after their segment ended. Many fans were worried that Lynch had actually suffered an injury. However, that is not the case as the injury is simply part of the storyline.
According to a report from Post Wrestling‘s John Pollock, Becky Lynch’s injury is only a work and she is completely fine and is wearing the brace to sell the storyline. Here is what he said:
“Becky Lynch was not at the SmackDown live event on Saturday in order to sell the knee injury. The injury is all storyline even though she is selling it by wearing a knee brace in public.”
Lynch was also excluded from WWE’s weekend tour of Canada to help sell the storyline further.
