At Summerslam, Charlotte Flair won the SmackDown Women’s Championship. Becky Lynch also turned heel to set up a long rivalry between the two women. However, the WWE Universe has embraced Becky’s turn to elevate her as a babyface rather than be the heel turn WWE officials had planned. That’s forced the latter to change their plans.
WWE officials are allowing the fans to choose their favorites and the rivalry won’t have the tradition babyface/heel dynamic any longer. It’s undeniable that Becky is building a lot of momentum since Summerslam. There’s a unique opportunity to do something big with Lynch, so the big question is when should she win the SmackDown Women’s Title?
According to Wrestling Observer Radio, the obvious choice for the title change would be WWE Evolution in October. In many ways, it’s predictable. It’s also fitting because WWE fans have made their point crystal clear to WWE officials. Ronda Rousey should receive the main event spotlight, but fans would remember the event as Becky Lynch’s night.
The Lass Kicker’s aggressive persona has resonated with the WWE Universe:
There have been some comparisons of The Lass Kicker’s new persona to be “Stone Cold” like or reminiscent of Daniel Bryan. WWE officials may attempt to keep her momentum going for the long term to Survivor Series or even WrestleMania 35. That’s a wonderful idea in theory, but you have to wonder how long Becky Lynch’s momentum can last.
WWE officials have to make the fans wait for her title win. It just can’t be too long that the WWE Universe moves onto something else. The important thing is to just keep her momentum going until the fans reveal when the right moment will be.
