Becky Lynch made her return to WWE at the SummerSlam pay-per-view, defeating Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Championship after being a stand in for Sasha Banks.
The moment was rather polarising, as it first saw Carmella come out to take Sasha’s spot before ultimately Lynch returned to take the match. Carmella recently appeared on After The Bell with Corey Graves, where she spoke about the moment, saying that she felt her involvement made Becky’s reaction greater.
“It was crazy! I watch them doing packages now and they just write me out of this history. First of all, I was part of this huge moment at SummerSlam. If my music had not hit initially, then I don’t think Becky would have gotten the reaction she did. I’m going to say that. I know that’s pretty cocky to say, but if Becky’s music hit first, would she have gotten a great reaction? Of course, she’s Becky Lynch. However, when my music hit, they were so mad. I’m walking down the aisle, taking my sweet time and relishing in this moment. So, when Becky’s music hit, it made it that much bigger. I’m proud of that moment.”
The moment received mixed reactions online, with some unhappy with Belair’s treatment in the scenario. According to Carmella, that’s just ‘Twitter being Twitter’. She said:
“It’s insane. That’s Twitter for you. ‘We want Becky, we want Becky,’ now we have her, ‘Ah, we didn’t want her like that.’ Sorry, you can’t have your cake and eat it too, but that is wrestling Twitter. I’m excited for that match, those girls are going to tear it down, and I kinda want to see Bianca walk out as champion,”
Becky Lynch is set to defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship against both Belair and Banks at the Crown Jewel pay-per-view on October 21.
