Becky Lynch has continued to annoy Ronda Rousey long after the two participated in the WrestleMania 35 main event back in April 2019. On Monday the news broke that WWE was attempting to promote Rousey to finally return to the company, with reports indicating she'll be back at the Royal Rumble this Saturday and will compete at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas in April. Naturally, Lynch was among the first wrestlers to respond to the reports, writing, "Was wondering if you 'd show up again. I've still got her [the Raw Women's Championship] and she's doing great."
Rousey and Lynch have actually repeatedly seen their singles matches ripped far from them. The two were supposed to clash at Survivor Series 2018, only for Lynch to get and suffer a concussion,got replaced by Charlotte Flair. Then Lynch won the 2019 Women's Royal Rumble and challenged Rousey, just for the McMahons to place Charlotte Flair and the SmackDown Women's Championship into the mix for a "Winner Take All" triple threat. Rousey took a hiatus following that match and Lynch has actually continued to promote a singles match ever since..
If you 'd show up again, was questioning. I've still got her and she's doing excellent -- The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE)
" Yeah, and I do believe it will (happen)," Lynch stated on the Out of Character podcast last October. "The reality that I've had a child and returned so fantastic that she'll most likely wish to one-up me and she'll attempt to come back in three months. Then I'll be right there to punch her right in the face, offer her a Rock Bottom, out of here in 20 seconds, Ronda.".
Both Rousey and Lynch have since had daughters since that last match. Lynch even admitted in other places in that interview that she contemplated not going back to wrestling after bring to life Roux in late 2020..
" Sometimes I think I'm a glutton for punishment, because I enjoy a challenge. So, stepping away, I understood that I 'd be losing my top spot, however then it was a challenge!" Lynch stated. "And I believe I imagine whatever as a 'Rocky' montage, right? So, coming back, I'm just constantly like, 'How can this be a 'Rocky' film?' So, I like that challenge of disappearing, being away for a half and a year, then returning and questioning if I was still going to have the ability to go. , if I still desired to go.. , if whatever was going to change and maybe I would just desire to be at home.. I didn't know. I didn't know how anything was going to go, but I think if anything, it just made me hungrier.".
" I was most likely 60 percent sure that I was going to return," she continued. "But, you understand, there is that 40 percent. I don't know how I'm going to be as a mom. I know how I am as a single woman, without any other real priorities-- however as a mother, and as a person who's in charge of this small little infant, I didn't understand how I was going to be. I didn't understand if it was going to change me so much that I resembled, 'You know what? Perhaps I just wish to be at home now.' I do not just wish to be at home now.".
Mustafa Ali publicly requested his release from the WWE back on Jan. 16 after not being utilized on WWE programming since late October. It was then reported days later that, despite the many roster cuts WWE has actually made over the past two years (almost always pointed out as budget cuts), the company would not approve Ali his release. Since then fans have actually begun posting the hashtag "#FreeAli" in support of the SmackDown star, to the point where it started trending on Sunday night..
On top of this, fans started noticing that the @WWEonFox Twitter account began obstructing people for using the hashtag. This led to Ali breaking his silence by openly obstructing the account in return.
