In the wake of major WWE events like WrestleMania and SummerSlam, the company takes a strategic pause to plan for the future, and in 2023, Triple H and the creative team have been hard at work to maintain the high quality of their storylines. The upcoming premium live event, WWE Payback, is a testament to their dedication and planning.
Despite the absence of top stars like Roman Reigns and Brock Lesnar and the notable absence of Cody Rhodes from the card, WWE Payback is generating significant anticipation among fans. One of the marquee matches on the Payback card is a Steel Cage showdown between two formidable women, Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus.
As the feud between these two powerhouse competitors approaches its likely climax, the self-proclaimed “original bad girl” of WWE, Trish Stratus, has delivered a bold message to The Man, Becky Lynch. Taking to Instagram, Stratus fired a warning shot at her opponent:
“Don’t forget Lynch, you’re messing with WWE’s original bad girl. See you tomorrow in Steel City. #WWEPayback #GOAT,” Stratus wrote, setting the stage for their highly anticipated clash.

The rivalry between Becky Lynch and Trish Stratus ignited following WrestleMania 39, but their previous encounters have been limited, with only one match on a premium live event thus far. Notably, the WWE Hall of Famer emerged victorious in their previous showdown in Saudi Arabia. With their Steel Cage match on the horizon, the question looms: will Becky Lynch manage to even the score at PPG Paints Arena?

In a recent episode of WWE RAW, Becky Lynch secured a victory in the main event against Zoey Stark, a rising superstar and protege of Trish Stratus. While some fans may argue that the feud between Lynch and Stratus has run its course, anticipation is building for their Steel Cage clash, which has the potential to steal the spotlight at WWE Payback.
In WWE, the outcome of a premium live event (PLE) or pay-per-view (PPV) often sees the wrestler who loses at the previous show emerge victorious in the subsequent event. This opens the door to speculation about whether Payback could conclude with a moment of “Stratusfaction.”
As the WWE universe eagerly awaits this highly anticipated showdown, the question remains: who will emerge victorious in Steel City, Trish or Becky? Share your predictions and thoughts in the comments section below!
