Becky Lynch addresses her absence from RAW
RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch has been noticeably absent in the past two episodes of Monday Night RAW. Her last two appearances came at Survivor Series in the triple threat main event, and during the Starrcade special over the weekend. Lynch teamed up with Charlotte in a 4-way tag match for the Women's Tag Team Championships in a match that involved The Kabuki Warriors, Bayley & Sasha Banks and Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross. The champions retained their titles after Asuka made Nikki Cross tap out.
Fans across social media showed their concern when The Man didn't appear on RAW for the second consecutive week, but it appears to just be a creative decision. As previously mentioned, Lynch wrestled Sunday at Starrcade, and was in Nashville last night. She defeated Kairi Sane in a dark match after RAW went off the air.
Lynch was also featured in a backstage interview for WWE.com where she expressed her displeasure with not being on RAW recently, as well as the lack of action surrounding her Championship:
So far, WWE has not capitalized on Lynch's post-match beat down of Shayna Baszler at Survivor Series. 'The Queen of Spades' was victorious in the match when she made Bayley submit. Clearly, Lynch has unfinished business there, but is she the 'one debt' left to collect?
Time is running out for WWE to set up a RAW Women's Title match for TLC, and it's very likely that it won't happen. Local advertisements have Lynch teaming up with Charlotte to challenge The Kabuki Warriors for the Women's Tag Team Titles.
