It was a great night for the Irish at WWE SummerSlam

Becky Lynch Wrestlemania

A great day for Limerick made even better.

One of the WWE’s biggest pay-per-view events of the year took place on Sunday night. SummerSlam went down in Brooklyn, New York and it was a great night for the Irish contingent.

Finn Bálor made an appearance as his demon alter-ego and quickly dispatched his opponent Baron Corbin.

Bálor’s entrance was haunting and people were absolutely chuffed to see him appear as the demon.

And it didn’t stop there.

Limerick-born Becky Lynch turned heel (changed from being a goodie to a baddie) and beat up her best friend Charlotte Flair.

Lynch was supposed to be booed for her actions, but was cheered instead, which is a testament to how loved her character is. Fans of the WWE can’t wait to see what Lynch can do as a heel.

Despite the fact that she technically lost her match, she will definitely be seen as one of the biggest winners of the night.

Ronda Rousey, meanwhile, became the second person to have won a UFC belt and a WWE belt, following in Brock Lesnar’s footsteps. She became the WWE Raw Women’s Champion, defeating Alexa Bliss.
