As per Lynch’s post (that showed her in the hospital), Belair damaged Becky’s voice box during a live event. The main event match featured Becks, Bianca, and Rhea Ripley, which took place this past Sunday at an Allentown house show.
Lynch would retain her RAW Women’s title. However, she will be out of action for a bit.
Becky Lynch Legitimately Injured – More Information
PW Insider reports that Big Time Becks is actually hurt. She’s expected to be away for about two weeks, recovering.
While fans will miss her on RAW, the good news around all this is she will be okay for WrestleMania 38. Her match against Bianca Belair for the RAW Women’s Championship takes place on Night One of the flagship event.
Speaking of WM 38, someone else who’ll be there is “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. Kevin Owens closed last night’s RAW calling out the Rattlesnake to appear on The KO Show at WrestleMania 38.
More On Kevin Owens Show & Steve Austin At WM 38
After a tremendous amount of speculation from wrestling media and fans, the role WWE Hall of Famer Steve Austin will be playing at WM 38 was finally revealed. Looks as if he’ll have a confrontation with KO during the Kevin Owens Show, on the Grandest Stage of Them All.
Twitter certainly reacted to the news of all this, as soon as RAW closed. Tweets have been sprinkled throughout the article, below.
Steve Austin famously told Kevin Owens at the start of his career to “never stop running your mouth,” which set him on a career path of doing just that.

Despite being retired for 19 years, the crowd still goes batshit for "Stone Cold" Steve Austin.
Wanna hear a real pop? Wait til the glass breaks at WrestleMania. It never fails.

PW Insider noted in a previous report that the WWE reached out to Stone Cold this past December, early January 2022. An idea was pitched at the time to see Austin return to the ring as a one-time thing.
Of course, Steve Austin can't wrestle anymore. Not sure what people were expecting.#WWERaw

As per PW Insider, since the reach out was confirmed, there’s been zero information from sources within the WWE that Austin ok’ed a physical wrestling match at the flagship event. Looks like instead of a bout, Stone Cold will have a confrontation with KO during his show.

There was a big question mark on the graphic as RAW closed with Austin’s theme music. Therefore, it looks as if the WWE will hype this match up by having fans wonder if Stone Cold will appear.

Stone Cold Was ALWAYS Going To Be A Part Of WM 38 … In “Some” Way
WWE had planned to have Stone Cold be a part of WM 38 in some way, from the get-go. He participated in the first announcement that aired during WrestleMania 37.
He was also featured on a WM 38 ad that was broadcasted during the Superbowl, along with The Rock. Interestingly enough, there was also buzz that Dwayne Johnson may participate in WM 38, but nothing was or has been confirmed.
While he may not participate in a bonafide match, Stone Cold’s segment on The Kevin Owens Show should be a very interesting one. Both men are masters on the mic.
Not to mention the fact that Owens has been using Steve Austin’s Stunner finisher as of late. It’ll be cool to see how the segment unfolds and ends.
