At WWE Money in the Bank, the WWE Hall of Famer competed in her first-ever ladder match, was she competed in the Women’s Money in the Bank bout. During the contest, Stratus apparently suffered a facial injury. In a tweet, Stratus noted that Becky Lynch messed up her face, and she shared a picture of the medical team treating her for the injury.
On the July 3 episode of WWE RAW, when Lynch called Stratus out, she came to the stage wearing a face mask. She stated that “The Man” broke her face at the premium live event, so she was not cleared to compete. Stratus initially teased that Lynch could face Zoey Stark instead before she told the former champion to keep her calendar clear for the match next week.
Seeing Stratus wearing a face mask reminded fans of Stratus’ first WWE run, when she adopted a similar look when she suffered a broken nose in 2004..
