Becky Lynch joined Bianca Belair’s Survivor Series squad for Saturday’s pay-per-view, it was announced at the beginning of Friday’s SmackDown broadcast.
Damage CTRL was in the ring when the show began, angry that they didn’t know who Belair’s team’s fifth member would be. Bayley called out to Belair, feeling as though they were being jerked around, and she answered right away. Belair, Asuka, Mia Yim, and Alexa Bliss emerged and immediately made it clear they weren’t by themselves. Lynch entered the ring to the sound of The Man’s music, to a thunderous ovation from the live audience. She engaged her opponents in physical contact right away, which got the show going.
There were rumours that Lynch, should she choose to make a comeback from her injury, would be introduced as the team’s fifth and final member. She was rendered inactive after losing to Belair at SummerSlam. Many believed that she would be sidelined for a few months and then return for the Royal Rumble. She was able to get back much sooner, it was obvious.
First Potential Singles Feud Being Teased?
The WWE will now have one of its best female performers back and prepared to compete in the women’s division, which is enormous. The production team wasted no time in setting up a conflict as Rhea Ripley confronted Lynch. However, they later decided against becoming involved to launch the show. Lynch was the only one still present, admiring the supporters’ adulation while standing in the ring.
As the opening act ended, The Man jumped for joy in the foyer. She moved next to Brawling Brutes wrestler Butch, who was competing in the SmackDown World Cup semifinals, while SmackDown went on.
