The world of WWE is ever-evolving, with Superstars constantly undergoing transformations in their ring personas and names. Following the 2024 Draft, a notable change was quietly implemented for one of the company’s biggest stars, which has now come to light. Becky Lynch, known for her successful heel turn in late 2021 as a four-time SmackDown Women’s Champion, adopted the moniker “Big Time Becks.” However, WWE’s attempt to trademark this new nickname faced legal opposition from James K. Duck, who owns Windy City Pro Wrestling and portrays a character named Bigtime.

Recent developments have revealed that World Wrestling Entertainment has decided to abandon the “Big Time Becks” trademark. Records from the USPTO indicate that WWE submitted paperwork to relinquish this nickname on May 24. Lynch, who has been a prominent babyface since Survivor Series: WarGames in 2022, predominantly goes by The Man as her moniker. Notably, official WWE merchandise channels have not featured any “Big Time Becks” merchandise for an extended period.

In a significant turn of events, Becky Lynch lost the WWE Women’s World Championship to Rhea Ripley in a 17-minute match that kicked off Night One of WrestleMania XL. However, Lynch reclaimed the title on April 22 by triumphing in a 14-woman Battle Royal on RAW, marking her fifth championship win. The title had been vacated due to The Eradicator’s shoulder injury sustained during an altercation with Liv Morgan backstage.

Amidst contract negotiations with WWE, Lynch defended her title against longtime rival Liv Morgan at the inaugural King and Queen of the Ring PLE in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. The match, spanning 16 minutes, concluded with Morgan becoming the new champion, with Dominik Mysterio playing a pivotal role in the outcome. Speculation regarding future storyline developments involving Rhea Ripley’s romantic entanglement with Mysterio is rife, especially considering Ripley’s absence from action due to a shoulder injury. The aftermath of these events and the implications for the title picture are eagerly anticipated following Monday’s RAW.
