Becky Lynch to become Becky Two Belts again?

Coming to The Man’s move to the red brand, she kicked off the show by claiming that she is the first pick for Monday Night Raw. In fact, she announced that since it’s her show and she’s holding the SmackDown Women’s title, it was time to take on Charlotte Flair and become Becky Two Belts again.

Moreover, Bianca Belair and Charlotte Flair have been announced for WWE Raw: September 4th, 2021. If Belair wins the match and becomes the new WWE Raw Women’s Champion, the rivalry between Lynch and Belair could continue on Raw for BOTH the titles.

And, this is the perfect opportunity for Belair to fulfill her goal of pinning all four Horsewomen of WWE. She’s two down, two to go. Charlotte Flair could be third!

On the other hand, if Lynch loses the SmackDown Women’s title to Sasha Banks at Crown Jewel 2021, Banks and Flair could feud for the same on SmackDown.

Of course, with the Women’s Champions switching brands, the swap of titles will need to be smooth. Expectedly, the swapping should begin from WWE Raw: September 4th, 2021.

Even if Belair doesn’t win the title, she’s definitely going to be in the feud for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship soon.
