Becky Lynch hasn’t been on WWE television since revealing her pregnancy in May 2020, but which may change at SummerSlam.
However, speculation of Becky’s return grows as she draws closer to giving baby, and SummerSlam would be an appropriate setting to kick off her comeback.
Despite being out of action for nearly a year, Becky Lynch is perhaps the greatest superstar in the women’s division right now. This hasn’t been the case since the beginning. Since her debut on the main roster, Becky Lynch has been the most underappreciated superstar in the women’s division.
All of the things changed at SummerSlam 2018 when Becky Lynch turned on Charlotte Flair and adopted the persona ‘The Man.’
This gimmick so enraged the WWE Universe that WWE had to adjust their plans, resulting in Becky Lynch winning the first-ever Women’s WrestleMania main event at WrestleMania 2019. Due to her pregnancy, Becky Lynch surrendered her RAW Women’s Championship on the RAW after the Money in the Bank 2020 PPV.
Lynch and fellow WWE Superstar Seth Rollins welcomed their first child in December, and now that she is eight months postpartum, it’s not out of the question that she is ready to return to the ring.

Becky Lynch made a surprising return to WWE on Saturday night at SummerSlam, following a 15-month layoff.
At SummerSlam, Lynch replaced Sasha Banks in the SmackDown women’s championship match, which she won by defeating Bianca Belair. Lynch attacked Belair and pinned her after hitting the Manhandle slam in a bout that lasted less than 30 seconds.
Becky was the Raw Women’s title for nearly a year before her sabbatical began, and she defeated Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36.
Lynch made her first WWE appearance since revealing in May 2020 that she was expecting her first child and would have to take a vacation from wrestling. Lynch (actual name Rebecca Quin) and Seth Rollins (Colby Lopez), a fellow WWE star, had their daughter Roux in December.
Lynch and Rollins tied the knot in June. Lynch was also spotted working out at the WWE Performance Center that month.
Lynch was the Raw women’s champion previous to her pregnancy announcement.
Belair vs. Banks was announced at SummerSlam up until the day before the bout was to take place. It was revealed shortly before Banks’ scheduled arrival at the pay-per-view that she would not be competing. Belair and Banks both skipped WWE’s home events last weekend after it was declared they wouldn’t be there due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Belair made a surprise appearance on Friday’s broadcast of SmackDown, but Banks was not there.
Carmella was supposed to replace Banks in the championship fight at SummerSlam when Lynch returned and knocked Carmella out. Lynch then challenged Belair to a face-to-face confrontation instead.
Lynch is one of WWE’s most prominent talents of this period. She defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the first women’s match to ever headline WrestleMania in 2019.
