WWE superstar Becky Lynch missed Monday Night RAW due to a “minor injury”.
Lynch caused a stir on social media before last night’s event when she changed her name on her personal account and made professional wrestling fans fear she is leaving the company.
The Man, who now goes by her real name of Rebecca Quin and lost her verification checkmark on Twitter, also tweeted that she will not be coming to RAW.
According to WRKD Wrestling, however, the six-time women’s champion was written off due to a fitness issue.
The Irish grappler’s absence was also used to boost her feud with WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter added that Lynch’s enigmatic social media activity is also part of her storyline with Stratus.
According to Fightful, the 36-year-old is dealing with a “minor foot injury” that she exacerbated.
The same report claims that the ex-RAW Women’s Champion has a contract with WWE until June 2024 and the two parties have not yet entered negotiations over an extension.
Stratus, though, delivered a scathing promo on RAW targeting Lynch which shows their feud will carry on.
The two wrestling icons could lock horns at SummerSlam on August 5 at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan.
Fans feared Lynch was hinting at an imminent exit after the first ever British WWE Champion Drew McIntyre went dark on social media.
McIntyre has strongly hinted at a departure with his contract ending at the end of the year.
This all comes after recent reports suggesting WWE superstars are planning to quit after the company’s merger with UFC and Vince McMahon’s return.
There is concern about McMahon becoming more involved with creative, despite previous indications that he will only be in charge of the “big picture”, and that has led to a drop in morale backstage.
