At last year’s SummerSlam event, Bianca Belair and Becky Lynch capped off a year long rivalry that begun back at the previous year’s event.
The match was one of the highly advertised bouts on the show, but according to Becky herself, it almost didn’t happen.
Speaking to Stephen A Smith on Know Mercy, Becky said that her and Bianca had to fight to get on the show, and that Logan Paul and Pat McAfee having matches on the show over her and Seth Rollins is ‘a problem’.
“Last year, at SummerSlam, had to fight a little bit to get a women’s title match on the show. When Logan Paul has a match and Pat McAfee has a match, and Seth Rollins doesn’t have a match, he’s been working all year. Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair almost didn’t have a match, that’s a bit of a problem.
“Personally, and from a work ethic standpoint, you put all of this effort into this, all year round, and when the big shows come, the big stadiums come, and there are 80,000 people, you want to receive your flowers for the hard work you put in all year round so that we can do this so that we’re on TV for 52 weeks a year and just killing the game. You don’t want somebody to take your spot, not somebody who doesn’t do this all the time.”
Bianca Belair still reigns as the Raw Women’s Champion, defending the title against Asuka at WrestleMania 39.
