Official Night of Champions preview: Trish vs. Becky
Press May 23, 2023
At WWE Night of Champions, Becky Lynch will battle WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus in a highly-anticipated dream match.
In a moment that electrified the WWE Universe in February, Trish Stratus suddenly emerged to help her fellow WWE Hall of Famer Lita and Lynch even the odds with Damage CTRL and paved the way for them to win the WWE Women’s Tag Team Titles.
The trio then joined forces to defeat Bayley, Dakota Kai and IYO SKY at WrestleMania. So it came as no surprise when Trish Stratus stepped in to team with The Man in her title defense against Raquel Rodriguez and Liv Morgan after Lita was mysteriously attacked backstage. Moments after she was pinned to lose the gold, however, Trish Stratus suddenly betrayed Lynch when she launched a surprise attack and left her down and out in the ring.
Big Time Becks was not seen for weeks following that attack, and Trish Stratus took every opportunity to mock her in her absence. That was until May 8 when Becky surprised the WWE Hall of Famer on Raw and treated her to the Bexploder. The following week, a determined Lynch challenged her decorated adversary to a showdown at WWE Night of Champions. Following a war of words on the final episode of the red brand before the PLE, that match was made official.
Don't miss all the action of WWE Night of Champions, streaming LIVE from Jeddah Superdome on Saturday, May 27, at 1 p.m. ET on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
