- SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch noted on Twitter that she suffered a cracked jaw in the match with Charlotte Flair at WWE Super Show-Down on Saturday. Below is new video of Becky cutting a fiery promo on Flair and tonight's title match on SmackDown. As noted, Flair will win the title if Becky gets herself disqualified.
Even with a cracked jaw, nothing or no-one will shut me up. https://t.co/V7IbMfEFLy— Rebecca Quin (@BeckyLynchWWE) October 9, 2018
