WWE Chairman Vince McMahon sees Becky Lynch as the company’s “chosen one” despite the scripted suspension.
McMahon suspended Lynch for 60 days last week on RAW after she attacked his daughter and WWEChief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon as well as Executive Vice President of Talent, Live Events and Creative Triple H.
The Man won the Women’s Royal Rumble Match last month and challenged Ronda Rousey for the RAW Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35 but her two-month ban will keep her out of the Show of Shows.
The Irish Lass Kicker was replaced by Charlotte Flair and made many believe that the second-generation superstar is Mr McMahon’s favourite.
However, the publisher and editor of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter Dave Meltzer reports that The Chairman is very impressed with Lynch’s rise to superstardom and actually sees her as the women’s division’s top star despite the recent storyline.
How does anyone watch TV and think that Charlotte is the chosen one when it is so obvious that Becky Lynch is the chosen one?
That is why the 73-year-old businessman insisted that the Irish megastar should win the 30-women over-the-top-rope battle royal instead of Charlotte.
“ McMahon completely did change his mind.
“He changes his mind every week.
“If you watch the TV it’s so clear, you know the whole thing on, I mean the whole thing is if they would have had Charlotte win the Royal Rumble — it wouldn’t make sense.
“It just wouldn’t make sense as far as the storyline goes.
“Vince was insistent, absolutely insistent, that Becky Lynch had to win the Royal Rumble even though in that sense they had to do a storyline that then negated it even though she’s gonna get back in later.
“But the whole thing was that he was so insistent that the story made no sense because he was so insistent that she had to win.
“You know what? He was probably right in the sense that it was probably the right thing to do.”
Lynch is expected to return to the title picture soon and make the RAW Women’s Championship bout a Triple Threat Match.
It also seems like The Man, Rousey and Charlotte will become the first ever women to headline WrestleMania on April 7 at the MetLife Stadium in New York.
