WWE’s Becky Lynch Reveals the Real Reason Behind Her Concussion

It’s widely believed that the concussion and broken face that forced WWE to pull Becky Lynch from Survivor Series, replacing her with Charlotte Flair, was the result of an errant punch from Nia Jax during Smackdown’s Lynch-led invasion of Raw last week. However, in a shocking series of tweets, Lynch has revealed that, while Jax’s punch did cause the broken face, the concussion was actually a result of Chris Jericho’s music.

The exchange began when Jericho complimented WWE for its success with women’s wrestling through the Women’s Evolution (TM), a book initiative wherein WWE congratulates itself for finally treating female performers with the same respect and dignity as the men, an initiative that was only necessary because WWE’s past initiative was to treat the women like crap. In any case, Jericho tweeted and Lynch responded:

But it was only when Jericho attempted to deny The Man the credit she deserves, crediting Nia Jax for part of the angle’s success, that Lynch revealed it was actually the most recent album by Jericho’s heavy metal band, Fozzy, that caused the concussion.

The album in question, Fozzy’s Judas, is available on all your favorite streaming services, though clearly you should listen at your own risk. Lynch will be at tomorrow’s episode of Smackdown Live, where she’ll need to address the fallout from her replacement at Survivor Series, Charlotte Flair, stealing Becky’s thunder with a “heel turn” of her own by savagely beating Ronda Rousey with a kendo stick and steel chair.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
