Summerslam had an awesome start where the Toronto crowd received none other than Becky Lynch and broke into chants of her name. Natalya entered the ring with a Canada flag and received huge pop too from her home-country audience. Becky slapped her to the face to start the match which Nattie give back within moments to start a brawl inside the ring.
A key moment of the match arrived when Natalya locked in the Sharpshooter around Becky Lynch using the second rope. But the champion broke the hold and replied back locking in the Sharpshooter that earned huge cheers from the fans. Finally, she was able to lock-in the dis-arm-her on the opponent forcing her to tap out. Thus, the title reign that started at Wrestlemania still continues keeping The Man on top of the female roster.
The new storyline around the Raw women’s championship for Summerslam kicked off the night after Extreme Rules. We received a fatal-4-way match which Natalya won via her Sharpshooter and go on a rant about the title-holder, Becky Lynch. She was full of confidence heading into the biggest event of the summer since it took place in her home country of Canada.

Moving forward, Natalya decided to throw more curveballs to Becky Lynch making the contest even more intense. She challenged The Man in a Submission match, (via WWE.com)
“She has the scars from battle and an arsenal that includes the Sharpshooter, one of the most excruciating submission holds in the game. However, Lynch also lay claims to a tip-top submission, the Dis-Arm-Her. Hostility over which hold is more effective quickly riled up between the two Superstars, leading to several hostile altercations and, ultimately, it leading to their title showdown becoming a Submission Match for the ages at The Biggest Event of the Summer.”
Now, Becky Lynch did not back down from the challenge to set up this big match at Summerslam. It was a battle between two submission specialists where the title-holder was the favorite to win. That’s how the match ended after a terrific battle as The Man can now claim to be the new hero for the Canadian audience.
