However, Lynch’s heavily anticipated return was overshadowed by her heel turn. The way she squashed Bianca Belair for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship was abysmal. The fans are still contemplating what went down that day.

Even WWE Hall of Famer X-Pac is criticized the way Becky Lynch won her championship from Belair. In his podcast, “Pro Wrestling 4 Life“, Pac stated,

“Bianca is on her way to becoming a MEGA star, and a lot of people are really drawn to her. In this age, you can’t do something like that to people. You used to be able to do it before. That’s why I was saying it’s like old school mentality. But now everyone knows what’s going on. The fan base is currently incredibly polite. And I heard WWE compare itself to Marvel. But Marvel, when it comes to fan service, they are amazing. They don’t do this kind of thing.” (H/t Super Luchas)

Pac feels that WWE just cannot do this kind of thing to the fans. He admits he is a huge Becky Lynch fan, an enormous one at that. The Hall of Famer praised Becky for sticking through her promo even when she was bleeding from her nose. X-Pac is still a huge fan of hers, but this did her no favors. He believes Bianca is a thoroughbred. Therefore, it was totally unbelievable that someone in that battered cast defeated her so quickly.
