WrestleMania Rumors: Potential Return Plans for Becky Lynch at WrestleMania 37

Published 04/09/2021, 9:30 PM EDT


Becky Lynch, one of the better Superstars of the current generation, has been absent from WWE for a while now. She took a break in 2020 when she was pregnant. Lynch and her partner, Seth Rollins, became parents to a baby girl in December 2020.

Ever since then, Rollins has returned to WWE. Now, the WWE Universe has been asking questions about Becky Lynch’s return.

Reporter Dave Meltzer has provided his views on the situation. He believes that considering Bayley doesn’t have a match at WrestleMania 37, it’s possible Becky Lynch will return for a segment with Bayley.

“If they add a Bayley talk segment to ‘Mania, that would likely be Lynch’s return as the idea of her driving a big truck in at one of the two ‘Mania shows during a Bayley talk show segment is something we were told was being planned at one point. That also explains Bayley seemingly not booked for the show after a year when she was women’s MVP.” H/t Wrestletalk.

Apart from Dave Meltzer’s reports, other reports reveal similar predictions. However, while Meltzer stated the return might be in a segment with Bayley, another report predicted she’ll make a WrestleMania 37 appearance.

Previously, it was predicted that Becky Lynch would return at Fastlane 2021, but that didn’t go as predicted. Now, all her fans are expecting her to return at The Grandest Stage of them All.

Becky Lynch was the champion when she took a break

Lynch’s last match before she took a break was against Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36. The match was for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship, and ‘The Man’ retained it.

Soon afterwards, she passed the title to Asuka before taking her break to embrace motherhood.

However, Lynch wanted to lose the title to Shayna Baszler. She pitched the idea to the officials, but it was rejected.

WWE wanted someone who had similar achievements as Lynch to be the Raw Women’s Champion during her absence. Considering at that point Baszler was new to the main roster, the company moved forward with Asuka.

Now, if Lynch returns at WrestleMania 37, it’s unlikely she will reignite her feud with Shayna Baszler. In fact, with Bayley not booked in any storyline or feud, WWE could book Lynch and Bayley in a rivalry.

Do you think Becky Lynch will return at WrestleMania 37? Let us know in the comments below.
