The Survivor Series dream match between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey is off.
WWE said that Lynch has a “broken face” that will keep her out of Sunday’s pay-per-view. Reports indicate that Lynch broke her nose and suffered a concussion while leading the “Smackdown” women in a takeover of “Raw.”
The injury came from a wayward Nia Jax forearm, so Lynch is no longer cleared to wrestle Rousey in the most-hyped match of the PPV.
Lynch left UFC legend Rousey battered and bruised Monday as she launched a fierce surprise attack on the star backstage.
Lynch then made her way to the ring to seemingly confront Team Raw in the ring before backup arrived from the crowd to launch a fierce assault.
Lynch, who proudly posed in front of the cameras as “Raw” went off air with blood pouring down her face, was immediately checked over by doctors.
Lynch arrived on “SmackDown” to address the situation and name her replacement against Rousey.
She told Rousey: “You’re not the baddest bitch on the planet … you’re the luckiest.”
Lynch then chose friend-turned-enemy-turned-friend again Charlotte Flair as her replacement. They hugged at the end.
But has Becky Lynch just turned babyface? The fans have been crying out for it, but will that take the edge away from her character?
This injury and postponing her match with Rousey will either be the best or worst thing for her current run.
