Former Divas Champion responds to Becky Lynch’s challenge

WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix recently responded to Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch.


Becky Lynch is one of the most dominant Superstars on the WWE roster today. She was the Raw Women’s Champion at Wrestlemania 36, but had to relinquish the title – as she went on a maternity break. The title was then held by Asuka. In December 2020, Lynch and Seth Rollins welcomed their daughter, named Roux.

Within a few months, Lynch was back on WWE and it took her just a few seconds to become a Champion once again. At WWE Summerslam 2021, Lynch pinned Bianca Belair in 26 seconds to become the new Smackdown Women’s Champion. The Draft 2021, led to Lynch exchanging the title with Charlotte Flair for the Raw Women’s Championship.

Since becoming the Champion of the Red brand, Becky Lynch has successfully feuded against Flair as well as Liv Morgan. At WWE’s latest PPV she earned a clean win over Morgan, which led to people thinking that who could step up next to the Man. But within a few hours after the PPV, Lynch found a new opponent and challenged her to a match.

WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix made a surprise return to WWE at Day 1. She helped her husband, Rated-R Superstar Edge, to earn a win over The Miz. Lynch tweeted out to her – “So…wanna fight sometime?” But the former Divas Champion responded with a “Busy.” to dismiss the challenge.

Beth Phoenix is expected to make her in-ring return for WWE. Reportedly, she will be teaming up with Edge for a Mixed Tag Team Champion. The duo would be colliding against The Miz and Maryse. This match could either take place at Royal Rumble 2022 and could even continue till Wrestlemania 38.

Becky Lynch put the title on the line again after WWE Day 1

Raw Women’s Champion

At WWE Day 1, Becky Lynch successfully defended her title against Liv Morgan. But a true Champion is one who defends it at every stage possible and never shies away from a challenge. That’s exactly what The Man did. A night after WWE Day 1, the Raw Women’s Championship was put on the line once again!

Lynch put the title on the line at a live WWE event in Fayetteville – against not one but two opponents. Liv Morgan and Bianca Belair tried to capture the title but The Man once again emerged victorious. It would be interesting to see on the upcoming episode of Raw that which of these Superstars steps up to challenge the Champion.
