According to a former WWE writer, Becky Lynch was “buried” after being beaten down by Damage CTRL on the 30th anniversary edition of Raw.
Becky Lynch and Bayley were scheduled to face off against each other in a steel cage match on Raw is XXX, but plans were forced to change, with the match being scrapped at the last minute.
Instead, Bayley and her Damage CTRL teammates IYO SKY and Dakota Kai attacked Lynch, locking themselves in the cage with The Man to deliver a vicious beating.
Speaking on Legion of Raw, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo took issue with WWE’s treatment of Becky Lynch and thinks the company should have done better by one of its biggest stars:
“I was absolutely shocked they did not bring Becky back. And Becky demand them to restart the match… They buried her. Let’s be honest, there is a good chance this is their biggest show of the year. They look at Becky Lynch as being one of their biggest stars of the company. They are in Philly. You don’t bury Becky Lynch in Philly.”
“I’m like bro, they’re not going to go the rest of the show with Austin, they’re gonna bring Becky Lynch back. She’s gonna cut the promo, demanding they dropped [the cage]. I one thousand percent would have done that… She was not hurt enough where she couldn’t come back… This was a swing and a miss for me… I think they absolutely buried Becky here.”
Following Raw, #WWEWomenDeserveBetter was trending on social media with Nikki Bella commenting on being told that WWE “had nothing for” her or her sister Brie on the show.
