WWE Rumor Roundup: Triple H has nixed Vince McMahon’s plan for top superstar, 6-time champion set to return at Survivor Series, big surprises for Royal Rumble (November 22, 2022)

Welcome to a new edition of the daily WWE Rumor Roundup, where we aim to bring the biggest rumors and updates from the world of sports entertainment. In today’s edition, we will look at some exciting stories revolving around top names like The Rock, Becky Lynch, and Cody Rhodes.

Becky Lynch has been out of action since SummerSlam 2022 after suffering a shoulder injury. After her match against Bianca Belair on the show, The Man turned babyface and tried to help the EST when Damage CTRL attacked her. Allegedly Vince McMahon did not want to turn her face and kept her a heel instead.

3) Triple H nixed Vince McMahon’s plans for Becky Lynch

“Becky (Lynch) was not gonna turn (face) if Vince McMahon was still in control.That was a Paul Levesque call. I just got confirmation on that. She would have been a heel as we’re talking right now if McMahon was still running things.”- Wade Keller(via PWTorch)

PWTorch reported that it was Triple H’s call to turn Lynch into a babyface even though Vince McMahon had plans to keep her a heel for a long time. Fightful Select has also reported that WWE Management is happy that McMahon no longer controls Lynch’s character, and Triple H is in charge.

Big Time Becks is expected to make her return soon. With her, Charlotte Flair, and Sasha Banks all missing from TV, WWE lacks major star power in the women’s division. Her return would offer a huge boost to the roster.

2) The Rock and Cody Rhodes set to return at WWE Royal Rumble

There has been a ton of speculation about The Rock finally returning to WWE for a match against Roman Reigns at WrestleMania 39. It is now being stated that the former WWE Champion could return as soon as the Royal Rumble 2023 to set up his feud against The Tribal Chief. Here’s what Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer said:

“This Royal Rumble, there’s so many different things that they can do at this Royal Rumble to build up to WrestleMania. Obviously everyone would expect Cody, there’s always the chance of Dwayne, others that can be thrown in there,” Dave Meltzer said.

Triple H will look to give fans many surprises at the show. Apart from the potential return of The Rock and Cody Rhodes, reports suggest that The Game has planned the return of many other superstars like Bronson Reed as well.

1) Becky Lynch to return at Survivor Series

Becky Lynch was discussed and planned as the 5th member in the War Games match (Fightful)

As noted, the former RAW Women’s Champion has been out of action for the past few months owing to an injury. PWInsider has pointed out that she will return at Survivor Series this Saturday, November 26, at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts. She will most likely be part of Bianca Belair’s WarGames team.

Lynch turned babyface right before she took a sabbatical, and it will be interesting to see her return and align with the team of Bianca Belair, Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Mia Yim (AKA Michin) as they take on Bayley, IYO SKY, Dakota Kai, Nikki Cross and Rhea Ripley in a WarGames match.
