WWE legend The Rock is confirmed for SmackDown Live's historic debut on FOX this Friday. As per Sportskeeda's Tom Colohue, 'The Great One' wants to share the ring with RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch.
The ascension of Becky Lynch
In a matter of months, Becky Lynch has transformed herself from a mid-card babyface to one of the biggest Superstars in WWE. It all kicked off last year at SummerSlam, when Lynch lost the SmackDown Women's Title Triple Threat Match to Charlotte Flair, and turned on her immediately after. Her cheerful persona stepped aside for 'The Man' to take over.
This anti-hero character became a big hit with the WWE Universe. Her popularity soared to such an extent that WWE had no choice but to do what no one had imagined a few months ago: Give Becky Lynch a title win in the main event of WrestleMania 35. Lynch defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte to win the RAW and SmackDown Live Women's titles at The Show of Shows, and is still regarded by many as one of the biggest Superstars on the WWE roster. She even bagged the cover of WWE 2K20 alongside Roman Reigns.
The Rock wants a segment with Lynch!
The Rock has already confirmed via Twitter that he will be returning on the show that was named after one of his famous catchphrases. According to sources, 'The Brahma Bull' is going to be disappointed if WWE doesn't plan a segment with him and Becky Lynch. Lynch has been turning eyes in the past year, and legends like 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin and Mick Foley have heaped praise upon her. Here's hoping we get a confrontation between The Rock and Lynch on SmackDown Live's FOX debut.Published 03 Oct 2019, 16:05 IST
