All thing being equal, this was a rather tame appearance from The Man.
Becky Lynch once again occupied the opening segment of SmackDown and used it to run down Asuka. Before Lynch was interrupted by both Asuka and Charlotte Flair, she did mention she should be the WrestleMania 35 headliner.
Five days before the Royal Rumble, this was one of the first times Lynch said she should be main eventing WrestleMania on WWE television.
With all three women at ringside, it didn’t take long before Lynch and Asuka devolved into a good old fashioned pier six brawl.
Lynch would get the best of brawl which continued through the commercial break and ended up backstage.
Becky Lynch won the go-home show, will The Man regain her title from Asuka this Sunday at the Royal Rumble?
