Triple H gets slapped by Becky Lynch on WWE SmackDown


Becky Lynch was part of the opening segment of SmackDown Live this week despite being suspended, and she made a big statement in the ring just like she did on Monday Night Raw the night before.

The Man had been invited to Raw the night before by Stephanie McMahon, only for Stephanie to urge her to receive medical treatment on her knee injury from the Royal Rumble.

When Lynch refused treatment, Stephanie announced that she would be suspended from the WWE until she receives treatment and is cleared to compete. This didn't go down well with Becky, who then attacked Stephanie.

Despite being suspended, The Irish Lasskicker emerged from the crowd on SmackDown and interrupted Charlotte Flair in the middle of the ring, but was immediately greeted by security.

Triple H then made his way down to the ring and accused her of being afraid of Ronda Rousey. Lynch responded by referencing her attack on Raw by saying: "How's Steph?"

The Game responded by questioning if Becky's knee was really injured, calling it an excuse to get out of her match with Rousey at WrestleMania, which resulted in The Man slapping him.

An intense stare was then exchanged between the two in middle of the ring before Lynch exited the arena through the crowd, bringing the segment to a close.

WWE fans absolutely loved the segment between The Man and The Game to open SmackDown this week.

After collisions with both Triple H and Stephanie on WWE TV this week, it looks like the two authority figures will get their own back on Lynch by adding Flair to her WrestleMania match with Rousey.

This would make the Raw Women's Championship match a triple threat, the match which has been speculated for months to be the main event of WrestleMania this year.


The Man's knee injury is storyline to allow The Queen to be added legitimately into the match, essentially as a failsafe so that the main event of this year's Showcase of the Immortals can still go ahead if Lynch can't compete.

Similarly to the likes of John Cena and Daniel Bryan in the past, it looks like Becky will be the next superstar to fight back against WWE's authority figures.
