Backstage News on A Potential Top WWE SummerSlam Match

It is being said that a potential match between Becky Lynch & WWE CBO Stephanie McMahon has reportedly been suggested for this year’s SummerSlam PPV Event, according to Dave Meltzer of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter. While Meltzer added that the match “is most definitely not a done deal,” a second source in the company told him that it is seriously being discussed backstage.

Becky was indefinitely suspended in storyline by WWE CBO Stephanie McMahon on RAW this past Monday night for refusing to see a doctor to get cleared to return to in-ring action. Becky responded to the suspension by attacking Stephanie before the melee was broken up by officials. As Becky was being held back, Stephanie managed to kick Becky’s storyline injured knee.

Becky’s problems with The McMahon Family continued the following night on SmackDown LIVE when WWE COO Triple H confronted her. The Game suggested that Becky was purposely trying not to get cleared so she could avoid facing RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania. Becky responded by slapping him in the face.

In an interview with Digital Spy in 2017, Becky admitted that a potential match with Stephanie McMahon “would be amazing.” As seen below:

“That would be amazing,” Becky said of the potential match. “[Stephanie’s SummerSlam 2014 match with Brie Bella] was a great match and I think that was the match I was most excited for on that card at the time. It was great to see such a spotlight on the women and I think it was tremendous.”
