Becky Lynch lost her WWE SmackDown women's championship to Alexa Bliss at the WWE TLC 2016, in a table's match on Sunday, in Dallas, Texas. Becky, referred to as the "Irish lass kicker", lost the match as she was power-bombed through the table by Alexa, one of the most highly-rated women's heels of the pro wrestling promotion at the moment.

Now that the title has changed hands, the steady rise of Alexa could be something the entire WWE SmackDown women's locker room needs to be aware of. Becky, 29, meanwhile, has requested SmackDown Live commissioner Shane McMahon and general manager Daniel Bryan to get another shot at her former title.

"I don't ask the WWE for anything, but I'm begging Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan to please, let me get into the ring one more time with her and I'll do the rest," said Becky, whose real name is Rebecca Quin. "Ever since I won the championship, legends of WWE and people have kept telling me that winning a championship changes people.

"What Alexa is gonna find out is that losing a championship changes people a lot more."

Whether Alexa does turn out to be the SmackDown Women's champion heading into 2017, remains to be seen. However, there are a few things which we should mention about the new champion, as for the WWE fans around the world, she is relatively a rookie!

Becky and Alexa were initially scheduled to fight for the title at WWE No Mercy 2016 in October, but the former injured herself and was forced to withdraw from the match.
