Ronda Rousey’s recent segment on WWE SmackDown was actually copied from one of Becky Lynch’s.
After being suspended by WWE after SummerSlam on July 30, Ronda Rousey made her return to WWE TV on last week’s episode of SmackDown.
Ronda was also fined following her actions at SummerSlam, and she returned up on SmackDown last week with a sack of money, double what she was fined by WWE Officials.
And now, footage has emerged of a segment featuring Becky Lynch during her run as ‘The Man’, and it’s really quite similar to Ronda’s from last week.
While she was Raw Women’s Champion, Becky was fined by WWE as part of a storyline, which was in line with her ‘anti-establishment character.
Lynch turned up on Raw and paid the fine, dumping the money into the ring, which is exactly what Ronda did on Friday night.
In fact, you can see how similar Becky’s segment was to the one that Ronda in last week by watching the compilation in the tweet embedded below.
It remains to be seen whether or not this was intentional, with some believing that it’s WWE’s way of subtly restarting the Becky Lynch v Ronda Rousey feud.
During Vince McMahon’s time in charge of WWE, the plan was for Rousey to face Lynch at WrestleMania 39 in April 2023 in what would likely be Ronda’s final match with WWE.
However, it remains to be seen whether or not that plan has carried over into Triple H’s regime, with it now being possible that he has other ideas for the two top female stars at WWE’s biggest show of the year.
Despite that, The Rock v Roman Reigns, which was originally Vince McMahon’s idea, is still WWE’s plan for the show, so perhaps Ronda Rousey v Becky Lynch is also still in the works now too.
Becky is out with an injury right now, sustaining a separated shoulder at SummerSlam in her Raw Women’s Championship match with Bianca Belair.
She is slated to be out of action for “several months”, with some fans even believing that we aren’t going to see ‘The Man’ again until 2023.
When she is back on TV, we’ll probably be on the ‘road to WrestleMania’, so expect WWE to immediately start booking Becky against Rousey.
