One Major Thing WWE’s Triple H Reportedly Changed About SummerSlam After Vince McMahon’s Retirement

WWE’s SummerSlam 2022 felt like a critical moment for the organization, as the pay-per-view offering (available to Peacock premium subscribers) was its first major event after former CEO Vince McMahon’s retirement. Triple H assumed duties as head of creative, and many speculated that very little of what McMahon had in place for the event would change once he assumed his post. But it’s been reported that one major element was changed by “The Game,” whose actual name is Paul Levesque. Allegedly, the original plan for SummerSlam’s Raw Women’s Championship match would’ve seen the show end with Becky Lynch still operating as a heel.

When Bianca Belair defeated Becky Lynch for the Raw Women’s Championship, a defeated Lynch embraced Belair in the ultimate sign of respect. Not long after, Bayley made a glorious and unexpected return to face Belair and brought Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (formerly Io Shirai) along with her. It seemed like Belair was headed for a massive beatdown, but Lynch rushed to back up her up at the last minute and forced Bayley and her minions to walk away.
