Former Champion Returns On WWE Raw

WWE Raw set

After a weekend of surprises at WWE Backlash, the shocks continued on the May 8th episode of Monday Night Raw.

Earlier in the night Brock Lesnar took out Cody Rhodes and cost him the chance to go on and win the World Heavyweight Championship, but the red brand had one more surprise in store.

Trish Stratus was doing the rounds backstage with wanted posters featuring Becky Lynch and even committed to having the design on her t-shirt. The WWE legend then made her way to the ring and ran down Lynch and even took a jab at her young daughter.

After warning Kevin Patrick to not get too upset because his countrywoman Lynch was missing, Stratus trolled fans by playing the former Raw Women’s Champion’s music. The veteran then told a story about her daughter wanting to call her doll Becky, but before she could finish the story, Lynch’s music hit again, but this time she appeared behind Stratus.

Lynch smashed Stratus and hit her with an Exploder Suplex before the WWE Hall of Famer escaped up the ramp. With Stratus on the retreat, Lynch said that she was right there if her rival wanted to find her.

Becky Lynch Hadn’t Appeared In WWE For A Month

Becky Lynch had been absent from WWE since April 10th, when she was attacked by Trish Stratus. The beatdown came after the pair had lost the Women’s Tag Team Titles to Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan. Stratus was standing in for Lita who she had also attacked backstage earlier in the night.
