Becky Lynch has returned to the SmackDown episode that just concluded.
The show kicked off with Damage CTRL, Nikki Cross, and Rhea Ripley in the ring. Bayley was boasting that her team will win at the upcoming Survivor Series WarGames match. She demanded to know who the fifth member of Bianca Belair and team was. Belair arrived with her team members and said “Well, there’s five of y’all and four of us, We didn’t come alone”. Right then Becky Lynch’s music hit and she walked towards the ring to an ecstatic and cheering Providence, Rhode Island crowd.

She and her partners immediately entered the ring and started brawling with the heels already in the ring. After a Bex-Ploder suplex to Bayley, Lynch and team stood tall in the end. However, Ripley still wanted a piece of the returning superstar and teased fighting her but Dakota Kai dissuaded her.
Becky hyped her return herself with this tweet:

Becky Lynch’s joining the team against Damage CTRL is correct by the storyline perspective as well. She was jumped backstage by them before being written off TV. In reality, she had to go into rehab from a separated shoulder she suffered against Bianca Belair at SummerSlam.
The Women’s WarGames match happening in less than 24 hrs at Survivor Series is a first of its kind on the main roster. The babyfaces Bianca Belair, Becky Lynch, Asuka, Alexa Bliss & Mia Yim go against the heels Bayley, Rhea Ripley, IYO SKY, Dakota Kai & Nikki Cross.
Rules for the match known so far:
The match begins with a single member of each team wrestling each other for five minutes. Another member then enters, making it a 2 on 1 handicap match momentarily. 3 minutes into this 2 on 1 situation, the odds are evened as a member from the other team enters. This will continue every 3 minutes, with alternate team members entering the melee till the time there’s nobody left and all 10 are in the ring participating. A team wins by pinfall, submission or surrender. Elimination rules apply here and the team with last man standing, wins.
