Becky Two Belts is back! The Man has returned to the WWE with a massive pop at SummerSlam from Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

And in a squash of one of the biggest women’s talents in WWE, Lynch pinned Belair in about 10 seconds to win the Smackdown Women’s Championship.

Lynch stepped in for Sasha Banks, who was said to be unable to compete by ring announcer Greg Hamilton. He originally announced that Carmella would be her replacement for the highly anticipated Smackdown Women’s Championship match against Belair.
