Vince McMahon has reportedly been very impressed with Becky Lynch's recent work, even telling others to watch her if they want to improve.
A large chunk of the WWE Universe has been waiting for what feels like forever for Vince McMahon to see in Becky Lynch what the rest of us do. While Charlotte Flair, Sasha Banks, and Alexa Bliss have been given the ball to run with, some more than others, The Lass Kicker had seemingly been forgotten.
It felt as if the tide was turning as we hurtled towards this year's SummerSlam. Lynch was the number one contender to Carmella's Women's Title, a reign that was long overdue an ending. Enter Flair. The Queen had to do very little to earn her way into the SummerSlam title match and surprise surprise, she ended up winning it. Perhaps the crowd reaction that night was what finally made Mr. McMahon see the light.
Lynch turned on Flair after the match and even though the fans still love her, she has been doing an amazing job as a heel. At the next PPV, Hell In A Cell, she defeated Flair for the title, and her hard work has not gone unnoticed. According to Wrestling News, McMahon has been showering Lynch with praise and pointing out that she is the perfect example of someone successfully grabbing one of his brass rings.
In addition to that, the WWE chairman has apparently also been telling certain Superstars backstage to watch The Lass Kicker's matches and promos to help them improve. Another backstage entity, Sergeant Slaughter has been much more public when it comes to his love of Lynch. The former WWE Champion tweeted this week that the champ's promos remind him of Roddy Piper.
While it would appear that McMahon is finally on the Lynch bandwagon, the true test will be this weekend at WWE Super Show-Down. Flair will get her contractually obligated rematch in Melbourne, Australia and if she wins, well maybe Lynch still hasn't had the rocket strapped to her. There have been reports that no titles will change hands this weekend, however, so hopefully, the Irish Superstar will continue to ascend beyond Saturday.
