WWE, I KNOW You WANT Me to ‘Boooo’ Becky Lynch, but Nawww-Bruuuh…

I’m sorry, I just can’t…

The night of SummerSlam 2018 was home to a moment that many fans (like myself) of Becky Lynch have been waiting for. A heel turn. A chance to see a somewhat new dimension to her character (yes, I know she was a heel in NXT, but it was two-dimensional as she was essentially just part of Sasha’s heel posse ). This time, after watching the first-ever SmackDown Women’s Champion not get her chance to reign again, getting passed over by Charlotte Flair (so WWE can create a championship pedigree for her to match her father’s) and never getting even with winning the title back from quite possibly the best heel in the Women’s division, Alexa Bliss, the time was now. And it…was…WONDERFUL!

WWF Championship: The Undertaker vs. Hulk Hogan, Survivor Series 1991

Soon after The Undertaker made his World Wrestling Federation debut at the Survivor Series in 1990, he set his cross-hairs on the World Wrestling Federation Championship and it’s then-title holder, Hulk Hogan. Everything initially began on November 16, 1991, when Ric Flair and The Undertaker attacked Hulk Hogan on the set of Paul Bearer’s Funeral Parlor interview show, but later Randy Savage and Roddy Piper fought off both Undertaker and Flair to protect Hogan.
