The match for the women's title between Friday Night Smackdown champion Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair was staged at Extreme Rules 2021. The two staged a very interesting match but ended with a No Contest and disqualification due to the intervention of the returning Sasha Banks who attacked both contenders and gave an important signal for the belt.
Becky Lynch in turn returned to SummerSlam by surprise after Sasha was deemed medically unfit to play a match. The surprise return of The Boss saw her win the match titled in that Pay per View in a few seconds and from that moment she is the undisputed champion of Smackdown.
Becky has arrived at SmackDown as a last-minute substitute, but now that as Wrestling Inc says Sasha is ready there is curiosity about how the Stamford company will handle the situation and the storyline between the three.
Becky Lynch, also known for being Seth Rollins' real-life wife, is one of WWE's leading female stars and latest rumors say WWE is happy with Becky's work so far. In particular, according to what Fightful Select reports, the WWE and the whole backstage are very satisfied with the storyline that has involved Becky Lynch and Bianca Belair in recent weeks and above all Lynch has fully impressed the leaders since the day of her return to WWE.
As for Sasha Banks, it was reported that the wrestler had been ready to return to the ring for several weeks but she still had to return as the Friday Night Smackdown creative team had no plans for her. The feud between Bianca Belair and Sasha Banks never ended due to the forfeit of the latter at SummerSlam, while Banks had nothing pending against Becky except that belt that could soon lead the three contenders to compete.
From today on there is a third inconvenience in the titled round of the blue show and she is back in the ring hungrier than ever.
The Godfather: "The myth of Hulk Hogan is based on a flood of lies"
Hulk Hogan can undoubtedly be counted among the greatest wrestlers of any era, having personally contributed to spreading the popularity of wrestling in every corner of the world.
Despite his undeniable technical and acting skills, the reputation of the two-time WWE Hall of Famer has been questioned multiple times in recent years due to a number of controversial incidents. The reference is mainly to the audio clip that emerged in 2007, in which the voice of the Hulk was clearly heard as he used racist epithets.
At WrestleMania 37, Hogan was even booed by the public in Florida, the state where he spent most of his youth. The 68-year-old from Augusta holds the record for consecutive years spent as a world champion and - after Bruno Sammartino - is the second wrestler ever with the most overall days as a WWE Champion.
Speaking on the Midnight Hustle podcast, WWE legend The Godfather recalled his experience working with Hulk Hogan, The Ultimate Warrior and Sid Justice way back in 1992. Without going into details, Wright hinted that he never treated Hogan as a friend.
The Godfather said: "I was having a hard time with my wife's divorce, so it's possible I wasn't 100% lucid while working. Hogan, Warrior and Sid meant nothing to me. I never cared about Hulk Hogan, he wasn't my friend.
He isn't even today, I have to be honest. He's not the good guy that WWE has tried to paint over the years, ”said The Godfather. Hogan defeated Sid Justice by disqualification in the WrestleMania 8 main event in 1992.
“There were not many credible heel characters at that time. That's why I was thrown among the dogs. However, that's how business works. I am a businessman myself. I can tell you that I intervened late because the WWE manager didn't warn me to run into the ring at the right time."
