WWE News: Becky Lynch Suffers Shoulder Injury at SummerSlam; News on Her Face Turn


-- Becky Lynch came out of her match on Saturday night against Bianca Belair carrying a visible injury to her arm/shoulder. Fightfulselect.com reports that the injury is indeed legitimate and will lead to the former multi-time women's champion to miss some time. The unofficial diagnosis is a separated shoulder which she suffered quite early in the match, so much that it affected some of the plans for the rest of the match.

-- No other details are known as of now on how much time she will need to recover, but the report added that one person with knowledge said that there is a 50/50 chance that Lynch may actually need surgery to correct/repair the injury, which if true, would definitely sideline her for at least several weeks.

-- In an unrelated note the the injury, pwinsider.com reports that Lynch's apparent face turn yesterday at SummerSlam was not a one-time thing and the company now has her listed internally as the #2 babyface on the Smackdown brand behind Bianca Belair. So for those wondering, it looks like they are seeing through that turn when she is ready to wrestle again.
