A new report has indicated that a major change in the Triple H-led era of WWE has already happened as he overruled an earlier Vince McMahon call at SummerSlam.
The thrills and spills of SummerSlam took place on July 30th in Nissan Stadium in Nashville, Tennessee as over 40,000 fans packed in to witness the Biggest Party of the Summer.
In the night’s main event Brock Lesnar and his tractor – yes, really – were unable to overcome Roman Reigns and The Usos in a Last Man Standing Match for the Unified WWE Universal Championship. Elsewhere Logan Paul stole the show with an incredible frog splash from the top rope to the announce desk as he defeated The Miz and Edge returned to stand side-by-side with former partner Rey Mysterio in the face of The Judgment Day.
However, the headlines were made early on after the opening contest saw Bianca Belair defeat Becky Lynch to retain her Raw Women’s Championship.
After the bout, Bayley made her return to WWE television for the first time in over a year but the Role Model did not come alone. Dakota Kai soon joined her despite being released in April and they were also joined by Io Shirai who is now named Iyo Sky.
The three women confronted Belair but The EST of WWE was surprised as anyone when Lynch stood alongside her to face down the trio.
Speaking on a PWTorchVIP.com audio show, Wade Keller has now reported that this face turn from Becky Lynch is very much a Triple H (Paul Levesque) decision and was not planned when Vince McMahon still ran the show:
“I can now confirm Becky was not gonna turn if Vince McMahon was still in control. That was a Paul Levesque call. I just got confirmation on that. She would have been a heel as we’re talking right now if McMahon was still running things. So, one big change early on there.”
