PORTLAND — Becky Lynch, Women’s Royal Rumble winner and next woman up to Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey, found herself slapped with an indefinite suspension just a week after challenging The Baddest Woman on the Planet, potentially endangering what may well be the most anticipated match of WrestleMania 35.
How did The Man fall so hard, so fast? Blame another heated confrontation, this time with Stephanie McMahon. The former Raw Commissioner was all smiles in her intro of Lynch, but tension rose when Stephanie insisted Becky undergo a medical examination on the knee she injured in the Rumble Match, under the pretense that The Man would not be allowed to compete unless cleared.
Becky sensed a trick. Stephanie insisted otherwise, citing a concern that Becky was hurting more than she let on. When The Man still refused to budge, the former Commissioner brought down the hammer, levying a suspension that would stand until Lynch was medically cleared by WWE staff. The Man cracked Stephanie in the face and unleashed a barrage of haymakers to prove a point, but she might have proved Stephanie’s: Her leg was tweaked again in the struggle, leaving The Man barely able to walk out of the ring under her own power. Becky didn’t get where she is by capitulating in any sense of the word, but as a heated backstage confrontation with Rousey revealed, their match could be in very real jeopardy; for all her defiance, she’s now playing with straight fire.
