Becky Lynch 'Arrested' As Two Major Stars Return To WWE

Becky Lynch 'Arrested' As Two Major Stars Return To WWE

On a jam packed episode of Monday Night Raw, Roman Reigns announced that his leukemia has gone into remission, Batista crashed Ric Flair's 70th birthday celebrations and Ireland's own we got to see Becky Lynch arrested for violating her suspension. So just another Monday night in Vince McMahon's wonderland.

Let's begin at the top of the show. Raw began with former WWE champion Roman Reigns entering the State Farm Arena in Atlanta to a thunderous ovation.

'The Big Dog' savored the moment in front of the fans, in his first appearance on WWE TV since October. Reigns had been out of action ever since the return of his leukemia, which he had privately battled 11 years previously.

Roman after talking about how good it felt to be back, before telling  the crowd:

The good news is, I'm in remission y'all.

With this the crowd exploded, cheering as Reigns basked in their love as he exited the arena, before being embraced on the top of the ramp by his Shield stablemate Seth Rollins.

Next up Raw Women's Champion Ronda Rousey teamed up with Natalya to face The Riott Squad. Rousey and Natalya looked to have had the match won, before Becky Lynch made her way through the crowd on crutches and proceeded to attack Natalya with her crutch.

Security then tried to intervene, but could not keep Rousey and Lynch apart. WWE trainers and local Atlanta police intervened preventing Rousey and Lynch from ripping the heads off each other any further.

Lynch was escorted out of the building and arrested for violating the suspension handed down to her last week by Triple H.

Rousey remained in the ring after the kerfuffle, calling Vince McMahon himself down to the ring. Instead Stephanie McMahon made her way down to the aisle. Stephanie reiterated that Rousey will face Charlotte at Wrestlemania.

The future UFC Hall of Famer begged McMahon to reinstate Lynch, but yet again McMahon declined, forcing Rousey to seemingly walk out of WWE until she gets her desired match-up.

Where the supposed Wrestlemania main event feud goes from here is anyone's guess. Becky will have to get out of jail first, of course.

In the closing segment of the show, legends gathered in the ring to celebrate 'Nature Boy' Ric Flair's 70th birthday. With such Hall of Famers as Shawn Michaels, Kurt Angle, Sting and Ricky 'The Dragon' Steamboat in the ring. Triple H introduced the 16 time world champion, then things got interesting.

As cameras cut to backstage, where we seen a familiar face enter Ric Flair's dressing room. Batista, who has not been seen on Raw in nearly five years, emerged dragging an injured Flair out of his dressing room.

The Guardian of the Galaxy star then addressing his old Evolution stablemate Triple H, The Animal stated:

Hey Hunter, do I have your attention now?

Batista was gone before Triple H made his way backstage, but it looks like one more Wrestlemania match between the two is set to take place.

After a few lacklustre weeks of Raw, WWE stepped up there game last night, with massive returns and the continuation of the company's biggest feud and now seem to have their eyes firmly set on the road to Wrestlemania.
