Becky Lynch is no longer the SmackDown and Raw Women’s Champion after losing the blue brand Women’s Championship to Charlotte Flair back at Money in the Bank. Bayley then cashed in her Money in the Bank contract and now The Hugger is being forced to defend her title against Alexa Bliss at the upcoming Stomping Grounds pay-per-view.
Charlotte and Becky Lynch have had their own fair share of issues over the past few weeks which means that even though Lynch is now a Raw superstar officially, she can still make appearances on SmackDown Live as part of The Wild Card Rule.
Lynch is currently set to defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Lacey Evans at Stomping Grounds next weekend, but there is overlap to her feud with Charlotte Flair. The Man won’t be able to appear on SmackDown Live next week since she is already booked to be part of the MTV Movie and TV awards on June 18th in Santa Monica, California.
Lynch might even decide to take Universal Champion Seth Rollins along as her date since The Architect is yet to take advantage of The Wild Card Rule and head over to SmackDown Live.
At this point it would make sense if Lynch remained on Monday Night Raw and built up her match with Lacey Evans for next week’s pay-per-view but with WWE’s Wild Card Rule playing a huge role in many storylines right now and being the sole reason why Alexa Bliss is able to challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship despite being a Raw Superstar, it’s hard to guess which way WWE is leaning.
WWE likes their superstars to represent the company outside of the ring as well as inside it which means that Lynch’s appearance at the upcoming MTV Awards will be more important to WWE than if she appeared on SmackDown Live that night.
