WWE presented Monday Night RAW from New Orleans, Louisana and featured several high-quality matches including two King of the Ring first-round encounters. However, there were several superstars who were conspicuous by their absence, and that included Universal Champion Seth Rollins and his fiance, RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.
According to Mike Johnson of PWInsider, Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch were away on vacation, and that resulted in their absence from RAW this week. Rollins popped the question to Lynch last week, and their engagement became a hot topic in the wrestling circles.
“Seth was away on vacation with his fiance now Becky Lynch, our congratulations to them, but since they were not there that’s why the house shows were canceled last week for the Raw brand and the house shows this week were canceled.”
Seth Rollins did appear in a backstage segment on RAW when the match between Braun Strowman and Rollins was made for the Universal Championship. However, it seems that this segment was pre-taped and could’ve been recorded much earlier.
Rollins and Lynch started dating around three months ago, and their relationship was widely publicized by several agencies. Even WWE acknowledged this and had them compete in mixed-tag team match at Extreme Rules.
Seth Rollins is currently a dual champion in the WWE, having won the Tag-Titles last week with Braun Strowman. Lynch can also boast of being a dual champion when she won the main event of WrestleMania earlier this year and captured the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championships.
Rollins will defend his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman at Clash of Champions, and team up with the Monster Among Men to defend his tag-team championship against Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler. Although not confirmed, Becky Lynch will most likely defend her championship against Sasha Banks.
Hopefully, both the superstars return next week and bring back the intensity which was severely lacking this week.
