Becky Lynch has slain many a foe on Twitter, but it seems as if she may have finally met her match in Edge.
There's no better bandwagon to hop aboard in pro wrestling than when momentum starts to gather behind a Superstar WWE doesn't want to push. We witnessed it with CM Punk, even more so with Daniel Bryan, and most recently via Kofi Kingston. However, just before it happened with Kingston, we were all rallying behind Becky Lynch.
The Man's ascent to the top of the pile began during the summer of 2018 and culminated with a win in the main event at WrestleMania. Lynch has really been showing her true colors throughout that entire time, both inside the ring and out of it. Some of the out of the ring stuff has been on social media, and it has had us hooked. The champ pulls even fewer punches on Twitter than she does in the ring.
One of Lynch's latest Twitter targets has been Hall Of Fame couple Beth Phoenix and Edge. We're hoping the online rivalry eventually manifests into a match between Lynch and The Glamazon. Edge, on the other hand, will never wrestle again. That means he has to take all his shots online, and he has been taking them well.
Oh wait, what? This is still happening? Sorry The Man I got bored after your last weak tweet and walked away. Kind of like I do when your matches come on. Huh. You used to like puns before you were “cool” right? Ratings Jugger-not. And again I say begone little one. https://t.co/J2IwRrXK6s— Adam (Edge) Copeland (@EdgeRatedR) June 7, 2019
The feud flared up again this week and Edge weighed in with a heavy blow, as you can see above. There's no hiding from the fact that the momentum Lynch had has worn off a little. Understandable since WrestleMania has been and gone. However, The Man got so personal on Twitter that Edge decided to shine a big old spotlight on that. He wrote "You used to like puns before you were 'cool' right? Ratings Jugger-not."
This isn't the only stiff shot Edge has taken in recent weeks. On his podcast with Christian, the HOFer revealed that he helped write Lynch's SmackDown 1000 promo. The one where she made the quip about Edge hurting his neck as he climbed out of the ring. We've said it before and we'll say it again, wrestling is at it's best when you can't tell what's real and what isn't. This ongoing beef is the perfect example of that.
