There could be another superstar shake up hitting the WWE. And it was one WWE superstar who may have just confirmed it.
That superstar is former WWE SmackDown women’s champion Becky Lynch.
She began training as a professional wrestler under Finn Balor and Paul Tracey in June 2002 then made her debut five months later.
Before signing with the WWE, she wrestled regularly for the France-based Queens of Chaos promotion, where she won the World Queens of Chaos Championship in 2006.
She also wrestled for England's One Pro Wrestling, Germany's German Stampede Wrestling, and SuperGirls Wrestling promotion. For those we may not know, this company is an offshoot of Extreme Canadian Championship Wrestling).
Lynch signed with the WWE in 2013.Following her arrival on the main roster in July 2015, she became the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion at Backlash in September 2016.
With rumors running rampant of WWE reverting to dual brand PPV's starting with the upcoming Backlash pay-per-view event, many fans speculate that a new WWE draft will take place this show.
The Backlash pay-per-view event takes place on May 6, 2018, in Newark, New Jersey at the Prudential Center and will air on the WWE Network and some traditional pay-per-view outlets. Both Raw and SmackDown brands will be featured.
Lynch was recently a part of a conference call, and SoloWrestling was there to ask questions.
During the call, Lynch was asked about this possible return of the Superstar Shake up. Here is what she had to say (transcript courtesy of Wrestling Inc):
"[Going over to Raw] and having new challenges and a new crop of women's [talent]... maybe that would be the best look for me. I love SmackDown, I love the people on the brand, I love the crowd here, I love the vibe.
But, I guess if I think what I always want to do is go for championships, and if that's not in my future on SmackDown, well then I want it to be in my future somewhere else."
She also commented on competing against Charlotte Flair, Bayley, and Sasha Banks for the NXT Women's Championship at NXT TakeOver: Rival on February 11, 2015.
"It was a gamechanger," said Lynch. It was my first pay-per-view that I was on in NXT, and I guess WWE programming, and I think it proved to everybody that I can hang and that I was a player and that I'm somebody to look out for. Being in the ring with three such incredibly talented and passionate women [working together] and trying to make a name for women's wrestling in general, I think it was a great time in history."
