We take a look back at what happened last week between Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus. They meet in a steel cage at Payback.

In the Arena:

Becky says she has Trish Stratus in a steel cage at Payback. Over the last few months of this rivalry there has been talk about who is the best and the greatest. It comes down to legacy. What are you in control of and what are you not in control of. Can you turn those lemons into lemonade. Her legacy will not be defined by wins or championships, it will be defined by survival. You can beat her and put her on the shelf for months, but she will always come back. Not because she is unbeatable, but because she is unstoppable.

Becky says she is unstoppable not because she always wins, but because she always fights.

Her and Trish will go into a steel cage but there is some business left with Zoey Stark.

Trish Stratus’ music interrupts and she comes out with Zoey Stark.

Trish says they have been dealing with USA-holes so to be in her native country of Canada… Trish says she should be saying merci beau coup Quebec. She says she does not know how to say how it feels to be in Quebec City… because it means absolutely nothing. She says it isn’t like this is Montreal or Toronto. Trish points out that the Leafs made the playoffs. Trish says she wouldn’t be here if this sourpuss wasn’t running her mouth. She would have been like Trudeau and split.

Trish points out that she does not understand what the people are chanting.

Trish says she has some good news and some bad news for Becky. The good news is when she beats Becky, she will prove she is the greatest of all time. The bad news is that you trapped her in a steel cage. Trish says she has never fought in a steel cage before. Is she scared?

Becky says Trish looks scared.

Trish says she is scared. Was she scared at 24 when she was put in a WWE ring for the first time with no skill? Yeah, but she killed it. Was she scared being put in the main event of Raw? Yeah, but she killed it. Trish says that she has proven herself.

Trish asks what are the frogs doing and she does not understand the chants.

Trish says you want to talk about survival and legacy, here she is 23 years after standing face to face with one of the best in the business. She says she finds herself having to prove herself to Becky and everyone else. Trish says she is sick of proving herself. When you step in the cage, you will see a side of her that you have never seen before. You should be scared because you are not going to survive this one… bitch.

Becky sarcastically says she is so scared. Becky goes back to Zoey. Next week, it will be her and Zoey in a Falls Count Anywhere Match.

Trish Stratus vs. Becky Lynch II

It’s rematch time!

When The Miz and Byron Saxton finish up, we shoot back inside Canada Life Centre and out comes Canada’s own, WWE Hall of Fame legend Trish Stratus. She heads to the ring by herself, as it’s time for her highly-anticipated rematch against Becky Lynch.

Remember, Zoey Stark is banned from ringside for this bout. As Trish soaks in the crowd atmosphere in her home country, we shift gears and head into a quick pre-match commercial break.

As we settle back in from the break, we hear the familiar sounds of Becky Lynch’s theme music. Out comes “The Man” for some “Big Time Becks” action, as it’s time for the big Trish-Becky II showdown.

The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one. The two collide like two p*ssed off hockey players duking it out with flailing shots. Becky takes over and put the boots to Trish in the corner. Trish headbutts Lynch with her face-protector on. She hits some big chops.

Lynch fights back with a Beck-Exploder suplex. Trish rolls out to the floor to re-group. Lynch catches her with a baseball slide dropkick and then launches through the ropes to splash on the WWE Hall of Fame legend at ringside. The two run around the ring and Trish catches Lynch off guard.

After dropping Lynch, Trish yanks Becky’s hair and slams her down to the floor before picking her back up and ramming her into the barricade. Lynch fights back and slams Trish face-first into the ring apron. The two head back in the ring and Trish dives right into a kick from Lynch.

Trish’s face cover comes off. The ref helps her put it back on. Trish goes for the Stratusphere in the corner but slips and botches it. She drills Lynch with some punches and then tries again, this time hitting it for a close near fall. She throws Becky out to the floor.

She slams her into the ring steps and poses for the crowd before rolling her back into the ring. She takes her face protector off and shows the camera that she is fine and doesn’t need it anymore.

She goes to use it as a weapon, which the commentators remind us happened in her previous Raw main event against Lita many moons ago, but this time it doesn’t work. Regardless, Trish continues beating Becky down as we shift gears and head into a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the break, we see some back-and-forth action until finally things boil over with the two fighting outside of the ring and into the crowd as the referee ultimately counts them both out. Yup, a rematch promoted for about a month ends in a double count out. Don’t worry, we’ll probably be able to pay for it again in a couple weeks.

The two ignore the bell and keep fighting. The camera follows them as the brawl continues into the food stands with a hundred or so fans in the background watching as they throw each other into everything that is and isn’t nailed down inside the food concourse of the Canada Life Centre. Zoey Stark joins the mix and helps Trish attack Lynch.

Winner: Double Count Out

Adam Pearce Makes Steel Cage Match Official

We shoot to another area backstage after we see highlights of the finish of the Trish and Becky bout moments ago. Adam Pearce comes in irate and confronts Trish and Zoey Stark. He assures them that won’t happen again because next time Trish and Becky meet, it’ll be inside a Steel Cage. Trish isn’t happy with this.

The theme for Zoey Stark hits and out she comes accompanied by WWE Hall of Fame legend Trish Stratus, who is still wearing her face protector. The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with our opening contest of the evening.

Lynch charges across the ring and puts the boots to a slumping Stark in the corner as the fans chant “Becky! Becky!” We see Stark roll out to the floor to re-group with Trish before heading back in and being decked right back out to the floor by Lynch, who follows out with a big baseball slide drop kick.

As the action continues on the floor, Lynch continues to dominate. Back in the ring, Stark hits a big shot that shifts the offensive momentum in her favor for the first tine in the bout. Stark hits a slingshot swirling splash onto Lynch for a close near fall attempt. After Lynch kicks out, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.

Becky Lynch vs. Zoey Stark

Back live, we hear the familiar sounds of the entrance theme music of Becky Lynch. “The Man” emerges to a big pop and heads down to the ring for our next match of the evening.

As “Big Time Becks” settles inside the squared circle, we head to a pre-match commercial break. When we return, we see Lynch in the ring awaiting the arrival of her opposition for this one-on-one match here on Raw.

On that note, the theme for Zoey Stark hits and out comes the newcomer to the scene for the women’s division on Raw, with WWE Hall of Fame Trish Stratus in a face-protector by her side. She settles in the ring and is ready to rock.

The bell sounds and we’re officially off-and-running with this one. The fans chant “Becky! Becky!” as the two lock-up and get after it. Stark out-powers Lynch, shoving her down to the mat off the initial lock-up. A loud “Let’s go Becky!” chant spreads throughout the arena as the two re-engage.

Lynch takes over on offense, but things don’t remain this way for long. Stark ends up taking back over and is punishing Lynch as we head to a mid-match commercial break.

When we return from the commercial time-out, we see Stark still very much dominating the action against Lynch in what has been essentially a one-sided contest thus far. Lynch starts to show signs of life, but just as she does, Stark connects with a huge side kick that nearly knocked Lynch unconscious.

From there, Becky starts to come to life again, but ends up taking her eye off the ball for just one moment. She turns her attention to Trish Stratus, hitting her with a drop-kick through the ropes but then turning around and being rolled-up by Stark for the pin fall.

Winner: Zoey Stark
