Two weeks ago, Becky Lynch was surprisingly pulled from the No Mercy card due to an undisclosed injury unrelated to the WWE that required surgery. Since then there hasn’t been much said about her health. According to Wrestling Inc., Lynch was seen backstage at this week’s edition of Smackdown Live.

The 29-year-old is still expected to defend the Smackdown Live women’s title for the first time against Alexa Bliss at the November 8th show in Glasgow, Scotland. Lynch originally won the championship at SummerSlam at the six-pack match. She had been involved in a few non-title bout on Smackdown Live following the event.
Lynch has seen a quick rise through the company since joining NXT a couple of years ago. This marks her first title reign with the WWE. She could be in store for a lengthy reign as Smackdown Live’s first women’s champion.
