Becky Lynch was “indefinitely suspended” by Stephanie McMahon on the February 4 episode of WWE Raw.
In storyline, Lynch has been trying to hide an injury to her left knee because she does not want to miss out on the main event of WrestleMania 35 in the same way that she missed out on facing Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series when she was not cleared by WWE doctors.
The opening segment of Raw saw Lynch refuse to agree to Stephanie’s demand for her to see the medical team, so “The Man” received a suspension and reacted by attacking her boss.
Fans are creating all kinds of theories on social media about why Lynch has been ‘suspended’, seemingly writing her off WWE television for a short period of time.
Let’s take a look at four possible storyline reasons for this development…
#4 Becky Lynch vs. The Authority
Two of the best WrestleMania main-event storylines in WWE history revolved around one disgruntled babyface Superstar and one angry boss: Steve Austin vs. The Rock and Daniel Bryan vs. Triple H (followed by Bryan vs. Batista vs. Randy Orton).
Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch doesn’t exactly need an authority figure added to the story — fans are already fully invested in what will happen next — but the presence of Stephanie McMahon will help tell the underdog story of how “The Man” has been held back by WWE management over the last few years.
