Becky Lynch returns to face multiple challenges
After Becky Lynch’s unexpected return at SummerSlam, The Man returned to SmackDown. The new SmackDown women’s champion did not apologize for her rather “behind-the-scenes” tactics in an impromptu match against Bianca Belair, which saw her regaining the blue brand title.
Although former titleholder Belair showed up without excuses to offer a rematch, Zelena Vega, Carmella, and Liv Morgan soon presented rival arguments as to why everyone should challenge the Man.
