Becky Lynch to return at WWE SummerSlam?

This return is a long time in the making. Let’s recap – Becky Lynch took a sabbatical from WWE on the RAW following Money in the Bank on May 11. It was revealed that she was expecting her first child with Seth Rollins.

Their daughter, Roux, was born on 4 December. Rollins and Lynch got married on 29 June 2021. After these, there have been repeated speculations about her return.

At SummerSlam, Lynch might return after the RAW Women’s Championship match. Nikki A.S.H. Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair will fight in a triple threat match over the title. Following the match, ‘The Man’ might show up to challenge the winner.

Brock Lesnar

The Beast Incarnate’s last WWE appearance was at WrestleMania 36 when he lost his WWE title to Drew McIntyre. Now that the crowd is back, WWE can bring him back to pull more crowd.

Last year, he was rumored to leave WWE. However, WWE recently moved his profile back to the RAW roster from their alumni section on their website.

This could mean that after the title match between Bobby Lashley and Goldberg, Lesnar could come back and challenge Lashley. Fans have been wanting to see Lesnar vs Lashley for a long time now. It’s about time they have their wishes granted.

Hear us out on this one. Although not a professional wrestler, Snoop is a WWE Hall of Famer and the cousin of ‘The Boss’ Sasha Banks. He can come back to WWE to help Banks.

Back at WrestleMania 32, he accompanied his cousin Sasha Banks to the ring for her match, rapping over her theme music. Because WWE is considering SummerSlam as the biggest event of the year (thanks to its sold-out full capacity audience), we would not be surprised if Snoop shows up again.
