The fallout from SummerSlam was quite spectacular on RAW!

Becky Lynch kicked off the RAW after SummerSlam and said that she injured her shoulder in the match against Bianca Belair. Lynch said she was detached from reality thanks to the rivalry before Belair walked out and thanked Lynch, who was set to possibly take a short break from the ring.

The RAW Women's Champion was about to cut her own promo after Lynch went backstage, but Bayley, Iyo Sky, and Dakota Kai attacked the former women's champion. The trio used a steel chair to further damage Becky's arm before Bianca ran to help, but the heels had already done the damage.

It was later announced that Lynch could be out for months.

After suffering a separated shoulder at #SummerSlam, @BeckyLynchWWE’s injury was further exacerbated after an attack from @itsBayleyWWE, @ImKingKota, and IYO SKY earlier tonight on #WWERaw. As a result, @BeckyLynchWWE is expected to be out for several months. https://t.co/eaWeubYqso
