Several top names including Becky Lynch were spotted backstage for WWE Hell In A Cell amid reports that WWE is getting set to let their big guns loose as they prepare for life back on the road.
PWInsider first reported that former WWE Raw and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch was backstage in the Yuengling Center. Lynch has not been seen on WWE television since the night after 2020’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view. In that appearance, Lynch, who was Raw Women’s Champion, revealed to women’s Money In The Bank winner Asuka that she had not just won a contract but had in fact won Lynch’s title. She then went on to reveal she was relinquishing the championship as she was pregnant. She and fiancé Seth Rollins welcomed their daughter Roux into the world in December 2020. Rollins was competing at Hell In A Cell, he was able to avenge his WrestleMania loss by defeating Cesaro.
Another name backstage at the event was sixteen-time world champion and two-time WWE Hall Of Famer, Ric Flair. Flair was present to watch daughter Charlotte compete against Rhea Ripley for the Raw Women’s Championship on Father’s Day. Flair won the match by disqualification meaning that Ripley retained her title.

Lynch’s appearance is noteworthy as it follows reports that she had been seen training at the WWE Performance Center in recent days. Other reports are suggesting that WWE is getting ready to bring back some of their biggest hitters as they ready themselves for a return to the road.
John Cena is reportedly in talks about a return that would potentially see Cena return to challenge Roman Reigns for the WWE Universal Title in the main event of SummerSlam. Another name that is being talked about as far as a return goes is Brock Lesnar. Lesnar has not been on WWE television since he lost the WWE Title to Drew McIntyre in the main event of WrestleMania 36.
