Becky Lynch To Defend Raw Women’s Championship Next Week

Becky Lynch with the Raw Women's Championship

Following a fiery contract signing it has been announced that Becky Lynch will defend her Raw Women’s Championship on December 6th.

Liv Morgan became number one contender on November 8th after winning a Fatal-Five-Way match. The pair engaged in a little verbal sparring in the weeks that followed before Becky Lynch interrupted a backstage interview with Morgan a week ago. However, not to be talked down to, Morgan laid out the champion with a stiff right hand.

As the contract signing got underway, Becky Lynch ran down Morgan but the previous week’s events have lit a fire under the challenger who responded in kind. Morgan showed footage of Lynch crying after her match with Charlotte Flair at Survivor Series saying that Big Time Becks was a big time baby, but harsher words were to come. Morgan hit out at Becky Lynch’s salary, saying that her big contract is the reason that her friends are no longer with the company.

Despite the two women being ready to fight on the spot, a 10-woman tag team match with Team Becky, against Team Liv announced for later in the show.

Elsewhere on the show, Seth Rollins announced that he will challenge Big E for the WWE Championship at WWE Day 1 on New Year’s Day.

Rollins earned his shot at Big E by winning a Fatal-Four-Way Ladder match a number of weeks ago. Since the victory, Rollins has caused issues between the champion and Kevin Owens while entering a mini feud with Finn Balor. In the opening match of the episode, Balor tried to avenge his beatdown against the number one contender a week ago.

Balor attacked before the match even started, using the steel steps against Rollins, but once the match got underway, the former Shield member fought back.

After poking Balor in the eye, Rollins hit a back elbow and a Curb Stomp to grab the win.
