Last May, Becky Lynch faced Trish Stratus for the first time at Night of Champions, where Zoey Stark helped Stratus to pick up the victory. WWE Hall of Famer then avoided facing Becky Lynch in a rematch. However, Becky earned the rematch after defeating Stark in a singles match on RAW.
This past Monday, Adam Pearce forced Trish Stratus to face Becky Lynch on RAW. However, the bout ended in a disqualification after Stark’s interference. Therefore, Pearce told Stratus that she will face Becky once again on the August 14th episode of Monday Night RAW in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
Many fans expected the match between Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus to happen at SummerSlam. In fact, Becky was featured in the SummerSlam commercial.
Fightful Select reported that WWE is concerned about run time on their premium live events. Therefore, some matches that were built for the show had to move for future events. The match time would be severely limited if Becky vs. Trish bout happens on Saturday, which is why WWE decided to postpone it.
“WWE has been adamant about limiting the number of matches and the runtimes for PLE shows, which caused some matches that were being built for the show to be moved elsewhere. Those we spoke to said that on Summerslam, the match [Becky vs. Trish] would have been severely limited by time, and the decision was made to put it on a future Raw instead. Consideration was also given to moving it back to WWE Payback. neither woman was thrilled with the adjustment, which came into focus in the days before their Raw match was set up.”
