At one point, an plan was discussed for WWE WrestleMania 37 that would feature the return of Becky Lynch — an plan that might begin to take form on Friday’s SmackDown.
In this week’s Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Dave Meltzer reported that the plan was for Bayley to do a “Ding Dong, Hello!” interview segment at some point during the weekend that would see Lynch make her return by “driving a big truck in.”
“That also explains Bayley seemingly not booked for the show after a year when she was women’s MVP,” Meltzer wrote.
As noted, the SmackDown roster member isn’t booked on either night of WrestleMania and tonight’s pre-taped show is the final one before the festivities kick off Saturday. She hasn’t wrestled since a late-February six-woman tag team match, but recently said in an interview that she’s not injured and that there were no plans for her despite pitching several non-title grudge match ideas.
Lynch has been out of action since last May as she revealed she was pregnant and relinquished the Raw title. She gave birth in December. The timing would seem to make sense given a feature in Elle Magazine dropped Friday and that WWE president Nick Khan said in a interview this week that Lynch would return “at a certain point of time…in the not-too-distant future.”
