MASSIVE WWE Superstar reacts to being PULLED from SummerSlam card

Last updated

In a surprising turn of events, WWE superstar Becky Lynch has been pulled from the SummerSlam 2023 card and will not be wrestling.

The match between Lynch and Trish Stratus, which had been in the works since Stratus’ return to WWE a few months ago, was scheduled for this coming Saturday, August 5th.

However, the WWE announced on Raw this week that the match would instead take place on August 14th in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.

WWE SummerSlam match Cancelled: The Reaction

Lynch’s reaction to this sudden change was subtle yet telling.

She took to Instagram to share several pictures from a photoshoot she had done for SummerSlam, captioning the post, “This was the shoot I did for Summerslam…”.

The ellipses at the end of her caption seem to indicate how unhappy she is overall with the situation and the fact that she won’t be facing Stratus at the show.

The Reason Behind the Change

While the WWE has not officially commented on the reason behind the change, Dave Meltzer reported on Wrestling Observer Radio that time constraints were a significant factor in the decision to pull the matches from Saturday’s show.

This isn’t the first time such a change has occurred. Another women’s match, Rhea Ripley vs Raquel Rodriguez, was also reportedly pulled from the SummerSlam card, although there’s speculation that it could be added at the last minute.
