The WWE SummerSlam 2022 event was a critical event for the organization, as Triple H assumed responsibility for the event's creative director, according to reports. One major feature was altered by "The Game," who now bears the same name as Becky Lynch.
A defeated Lynch embraced Belair in the ultimate sign of respect. Not long afterwards, Bayley made a wonderful and unexpected comeback to face Belair and brought Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (formerly Io Shirai) along with her.
Wade Keller of PWTorchVIP.com (via WrestlingNews.co) reports that the change solidified the Irish wrestler's transition from heel to babyface. The change, according to Keller, was not initially planned for the event.
If Vince McMahon was still in charge, I can now confirm Becky would not have risen. That was a Paul Levesque gesture. I just received confirmation on that. She would have been a heel as we're talking right now if McMahon was still in charge.
Becky Lynch's decision to switch from heel to babyface might transform the women's division on Monday Night Raw. She will not have to compete with Big Time Becks as the other top female heel in the brand. Additionally, aligning Becky as an ally of Bianca Belair increases the champions' odds against Bayley's new faction, though they may need another woman to lend a hand to get back into a major storyline.
According to reports, changing Becky Lynch from heel to babyface would be a significant change for Triple H right off the bat. If true, it might also indicate that fans may expect some other significant creative changes and shifts in direction moving forward.
On Monday night Raw, there's no doubt that you'll get more of the SummerSlam aftermath, so be sure to tune into USA Network to see what all goes well. Hopefully, you'll see some more of Bayley and get a better understanding of what Becky and Bianca will be doing at upcoming WWE events.
