SmackDown's Women Champion Becky Lynch is seemingly stuck between a rock and a hard place with WWE right now, but things could have been totally different for The Irish Lasskicker.
Lynch was crowned the first ever SmackDown LIVE Women's Champion a few months ago after beating her fellow-superstars in a Championship battle royal match.
However, since winning the title, she's been booked fairly weak, and she's also been sidelined for a few weeks due to an unspecified injury.

Lynch is currently feuding with recently-promoted Alexa Bliss, who made her way up from NXT during the WWE Draft and the brand split, and it seems backstage officials are more keen on Bliss.
In fact, reports emerged during the week that Kevin Dunn, one of WWE's TV producers, hates Lynch's accent and wants her promo time cut.
If that was to happen, it would certainly damage her title reign and probably lead to her losing the belt.
However, things could have been completely different for Lynch, who played a key part in the women's revolution a couple of years ago alongside Sasha Banks and Charlotte.
Speaking with ESPN, Lynch admitted that she never wanted to join WWE because she felt she didn't fit the mould and didn't fall under the category of a diva.
Luckily for Lynch, things changed and the divas became female superstars, but if that change didn't happen, Lynch probably wouldn't have ended up with the company.
She said: “When I was younger, I didn’t want to come to WWE because I didn’t fit into the mold. I couldn’t identify myself with the term “diva.”
"The divas brand was meant to put a spotlight on the women, but the term to me felt more glamorous than me.”
As mentioned earlier, the Irish superstar played a huge role in the women's revolution, but since then, both Banks and Charlotte have left Lynch behind in terms of status and in terms of importance.
