Becky Lynch has been truly dominant on the RAW Women’s division since her WrestleMania 35 victory, however Sasha Banks has returned and she’s set to challenge Becky Lynch who’s the currently the RAW Women’s Champion.
Report cycling around has it that a title match between the The Man and The Boss is looking very likely possibly at the Clash of Champions Pay Per View next month.
Here are three reasons Sasha Banks will beat WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch (The Man) and claim the title.
Becky Lynch’s Raw Championship reign has had ups and downs over the past few months. Despite her huge win at in the main event of WrestleMania (the first women’s main event in the show’s history), fans were not thrilled with her lengthy feud against Lacey Evans, and her one-off match against Natalya didn’t excite the crowd either. WWE implementing her real-life relationship with Seth Rollins has also hurt the momentum of both wrestlers.
Many vocal fans will cheer Sasha Banks over Becky Lynch due to the fresh new character of her heel side. Lynch has already risked growing stale due to the booking of her title reign.
Banks winning the Raw Women’s Championship means Lynch can chase the title again to prevent the reign from growing stale, as it seems The Man’s journey to the top was better than her being there.
WWE clearly wants Sasha Banks to remain with the company long-term for good reason. Banks is one of the top female stars for the company and a former four-time RAW Women’s Champion. She was also part of the first WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions and has remained one of the most popular stars in WWE, despite some less than stellar booking.
Despite the success she has had both in NXT and on the main roster, she expressed a desire to leave after losing the Women’s Tag Team Championship with Bayley at WrestleMania 35.
The belief was that Banks wanted to get released from her WWE contract to join another promotion like AEW. This could inspire WWE to finally book Banks strong as a heel to make her a legitimate top star. A great run here may be enough to prevent her from eventually leaving for AEW.
With NXT moving to the USA Network to compete with AEW on TNT, it’s clear that the war between the two promotions is heating up, and the last thing McMahon needs is the Boss jumping ship.
Ask yourself right now – who is the top dominant heel female on Monday Night RAW? Ronda Rousey hasn’t been seen on the show in months, and Lacey Evans has been used a lot less since losing to The Man. Alexa Bliss, who once ran the red brand as the Goddess of the roster, is now more focused on her WWE Women’s Tag team title partnership with Nikki Cross.
The instant success of Sasha Banks in her return has shown just great she is as a heel character. Banks’ best time in NXT came with the heel Boss character. A return is certainly making one of the top villains on the entire roster of both shows and all divisions.
Winning the Raw Women’s Championship over Becky Lynch would cement her as having a top spot in the company. If The Boss goes on to take the title from The Man, Banks not only will become the official top female heel on Monday Night Raw, but she may be the best overall heel on the WWE roster moving forward.
