5 Finishes for Becky Lynch & Charlotte Flair vs. Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair - WWE Hall of Fame returns on RAW?

Sportskeeda 10 October, 2021 - 01:20am

Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will team up to take on Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair on WWE RAW next week. With all due respect to AEW, this is a dynamite match in the truest sense because of all the combustible elements.

It is a powder keg waiting to explode on live television. Can Lynch and Flair coexist and similarly, can Banks and Belair stay on the same page?

Here are five possible finishes for this incredible match. Be sure to share your thoughts in the comments below. Who do you think picks up the win here?

Could we potentially see interference during the contest?

Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch are the Stone Cold and The Rock of the current generation. They have fought many battles in the past and will continue to wage several more wars. So what if they're both heels? They are very likely indeed to clash at Survivor Series. And the seeds for the clash could be planted on next week's show.

So, in the middle of the WWE RAW match, we could see a misunderstanding between Lynch and Flair that results in a major altercation. This could allow Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair to score a major victory. The only reason why this option is so very low in this list is that it's too predictable.

Much like Brock Lesnar vs. Roman Reigns, this new Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch rivalry is not the same as before. On this occasion, Lynch is no longer the beloved babyface, she is the despised heel. Flair and The Man could both bring a new flavor to their upcoming bout at Survivor Series in this manner, if that is indeed the plan.

WWE ‘Supersized’ SmackDown will compete against AEW Rampage next week

Cageside Seats 10 October, 2021 - 01:20am

With the Crown Jewel pay-per-view in Saudi Arabia fast approaching, the card is coming together quickly. That build continued with WWE SmackDown on Friday night, a show that also included the start of both the King of the Ring and Queen's Crown tournaments.

Both of those tournaments will wrap up at Crown Jewel and we now know two semifinalists in both tournaments. Sami Zayn and Finn Balor both won their quarterfinal matches in King of the Ring while Zelina Vega and Carmella picked up wins in the first round of the Queen's Crown tournament. Unfortunately for the women, Queen's Crown was treated as little more than a sideshow attraction, with the two matches combining to last for less time than many stars' ring walks.

CBS Sports was with you all night with recaps and highlights of all the action from SAP Center in San Jose, California.

King of the Ring Quarterfinals – Sami Zayn def. Rey Mysterio via pinfall with a roll-up. Before the match, Zayn approached Dominik Mysterio backstage and told the younger Mysterio he believed he was better than his dad. After Zayn took the early advantage and threw Rey into the ring post, Dominik made his way to ringside to watch the match. Zayn removed the turnbuckle pad and Dominik attempted to reattach and Rey began arguing with his son before Zayn shoved Rey into Dominik to set up a roll-up to win and advance in the tournament.

King of the Ring Quarterfinals – Finn Balor def. Cesaro via pinfall after a Coup de Grace. The two veterans had a straight-forward wrestling match with no extracurricular activities before Balor won clean with the Coup de Grace. With the win, Balor advanced to face Zayn in the semifinals on next week's SmackDown.

Queen's Crown Quarterfinals – Zelina Vega def. Toni Storm via pinfall with a code red in an extremely short match that lasted less than three minutes.

Queen's Crown Quarterfinals – Carmella def. Liv Morgan via pinfall after clotheslining Morgan on the top rope. Carmella again wore her "bedazzled carbon-fiber mask." She nearly finished the match seconds in with the Code of Silence but Morgan was able to briefly fight back before Carmella was able to clothesline Morgan on the top rope to score the pin.

SmackDown Match Reportedly Was Going To End Differently - Wrestling Inc.

Wrestling Inc. 09 October, 2021 - 09:35pm

The October 8 SmackDown match between Carmella and Liv Morgan at one point was going to end differently, according to Fightful Select. 

According to the report, ahead of the match, Liv Morgan was penciled in to win the Queen’s Crown tournament first-round match instead of Carmella.

Fightful also noted that there is significant frustration from talent and staff about the booking of the women’s division lately.

Fans have even expressed on social media their own frustrations over last night’s booking.

One fan tweeted, “Toni Storm vs Zelina lasted 2:14 Liv Morgan vs Carmella lasted 1:36 Roman’s entrance was longer than both women’s matches. Not even a little bit of respect with this Queen’s Crown tournament. Absolutely unacceptable. #SmackDown

While another wrote, “It’s genuinely honest to god sad how #WWE books #LivMorgan like legit sad. #LivMorganDeservesBetter

Drew McIntyre Says His Attention Is On Big E Despite Roman Reigns Being “The Biggest Name”

Becky Lynch has a hilarious reaction to her 3-D graphic from this week's WWE SmackDown

Sportskeeda 09 October, 2021 - 05:09pm

WWE Women’s SmackDown Champion, Becky Lynch has given her honest opinion to WWE’s new 3D graphic.

The Man is typically someone who doesn't like to hold back from expressing her views and ideas and this time she has done the same regarding a "Big Time Becks" graphic from SmackDown.

The graphic from Friday night caught the attention of several members of the WWE Universe from all around the world. Fans took to Twitter to send out several comedic reactions. Meanwhile, Becky Lynch herself replied hilariously with an image of her own 'awkward thumbs up' pose.

The Man's awkward 'thumbs up' image has caught the attention of wrestling fans and emerged as another incredible meme from the pro wrestling world.

Crown Jewel will be held on October 21st, where Lynch will put her SmackDown Women's tite on the line against Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair in a Triple Threat Match.

Lynch won the title from Belair at this year's SummerSlam pay-per-view in shocking fashion. Within a few seconds of the former's return to WWE TV she was hoisting the gold.

In the lead-up to Crown Jewel, The Man will face Banks next week in the super-sized version of SmackDown. If done correctly? The Becky vs Bianca rivalry could be a great storyline for WWE in the weeks and months ahead, as we roll towards the end of the year. Throwing Banks into the mix only makes things more intriguing, as she and Lynch have a long and storied past.

While it remains a bit unclear as to how things will unfold in the aftermath of WWE Draft 2021, Becky Lynch has been drafted to Monday Night RAW, while still being the SmackDown Women's Champion.

Whereas? This year's Crown Jewel event looks stacked, with The Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns defending his Universal Title against The Beast, Brock Lesnar.

The veteran Edge will face Seth Rollins in a Hell in a Cell match and the finals of the King of the Ring Tournament and the Queen's Crown Tournament will also take place.

It should make for an interesting event, with so many storylines swirling in the wind for WWE right n

What do you think about Becky Lynch's current reign as the Smackdown Women's Champion? Share your thoughts in the comments section below!

Drew McIntyre vs. Tyson Fury? We chatted with the Scotsman and asked him about the dream match here.
