The on-screen story began on June 23 at WWE Stomping Grounds, where Lynch helped her partner retain his Universal Championship after her rival, special guest referee Lacey Evans, refused to complete the 3-count every time Rollins pinned Baron Corbin in the PPV’s main event.
It has now been confirmed that Rollins & Lynch will join forces at WWE Extreme Rules on July 14 to defend the Universal Championship and Raw Women’s Championship against Corbin & Evans in a ‘Winners Take All’ Extreme Rules tag team match.
On paper, "The Beastslayer" is more equipped to deal with a tag team scenario than Lynch following his exploits as a member of The Shield, but did you know that “The Man” has also had her fair share of male tag team partners throughout her career?
In this article, let’s take a look at four male WWE Superstars who she teamed with before linking up with Rollins.
#4 Sami Zayn
Unlike the second season, which allowed every tag team to compete in at least four matches before the semi-finals and final, the first season had a knockout format from the very beginning, which meant that losing duos were immediately eliminated.
Sadly for Lynch & Zayn, aka The Ginger Snaps, their alliance only lasted for one 11-minute match, as Bliss landed a spectacular Twisted Bliss from the top of Strowman’s shoulders to pick up the victory over Lynch.
The encounter proved to be the end of the Mixed Match Challenge for Zayn, but his tag partner was given a surprising route back into the competition at the semi-final stage.
