WWE superstar Becky Lynch is set for her in ring return at Survivor Series War Games after making a comeback on SmackDown – four months after suffering a brutal injury.

The Man has been out of action since August after being rocked by a separated shoulder during her Raw Women’s Title match with Bianca Belair, which saw the current champion keep hold of the gold.

Big Times Becks was able to finish the match and stood alongside the EST of WWE as she was faced with Bayley, Iyo Sky and Dakota Kai, who later revealed themselves as Damage CTRL.

Since then, Bianca has found herself getting backup from Alexa Bliss and Asuka, while Mia Yim has joined their team at War Games.

There had been plenty of speculation about the identity of their mystery fifth partner, with Damage CTRL already adding Nikki Cross and Judgment Day’s Rhea Ripley to their squad.

At the top of the show on Friday night, Bianca and her crew came out to face Bayley’s group, and soon unveiled Lynch as the final addition to the War Games field.

She made an instant impression, leading them to the ring and sparking a brawl with their rivals.

The crowd reacted brilliantly at the 10 women came to blows, and it was Team Bianca standing tall after Becky hit the Bexploder suplex on Bayley 24 hours before they go to war.

Elsewhere at Survivor Series, the other War Games match will see The Bloodline – Roman Reigns, The Usos, Sami Zayn and Solo Sikoa – take on the Brawling Brutes as Sheamus, Ridge Holland and Butch are joined by Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.

Shotzi will challenge Ronda Rousey for the SmackDown Women’s Championship, while the United States Title is on the line with Seth Rollins defending against both Bobby Lashley and Austin Theory in a Triple Threat.

And in the only other match announced for the still stacked card, AJ Styles will represent The O.C. against Judgment Day star Finn Balor.

WWE SmackDown airs Friday nights at 1am on BT Sport 1.
