Becky is indeed "The Man".
The wrestling world was not pleased when Fightful's Sean Ross Sapp broke the story that SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch was being pulled from her scheduled and anticipated bout against RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series. This past Monday on RAW, "The Man" Becky Lynch led the charge as the female stars of SmackDown invaded RAW. During the scuffle Becky ate a jab to the face from Nia Jax that connected flush and broke Becky's nose and gave her a concussion.
WWE released footage of the moments leading up to and after Becky was told by WWE officials that she was being pulled from Survivor Series and she was clearly unhappy and disappointed. Nonetheless Becky left a long-lasting image in the mind of fans when she stood amongst the fans after the RAW invasion with blood on her face, hands and hair and stood there yelling that she is "The Man". Many WWE Hall Of Famers and wrestlers from all over credited Becky Lynch for her toughness and grit and one of the in-ring performers who credited "The Irish Lasskicker" was The Big Show. Big Show recently joined Busted Open Radio and gave his take on the situation with Nia Jax and Becky Lynch and stated that things do happen in the ring and the result of the situation is unfortunate but the fact that Becky was able to power through and continue on with the segment gave him goosebumps.

“This is a physical business, though it's an entertainment business, know there’s a predetermined outcome - all that we know, but you can’t fake gravity, and physical contact happens, and, you know, Nia’s a strong girl, and she caught Becky and the thing about it is - I love about Becky, she took a full-blown shot to the face, nose bleeding." He continued, "You [Bully Ray] and I both know guys that would be crying and whining like little babies if they took a shot like that and what was Becky Lynch doing on stage? Like the man grinning. Like, ‘That’s all you got?’ Oh my goodness man - gave my goosebumps. Now to me, that’s business right there."
The SmackDown Women's Champion caught wind of the Big Show's comments and told Show to pull some strings so that she can get cleared to compete.
Getting goosebumps from my face lumps. Hey, @WWETheBigShow see can you pull some strings to get The Man out of doctor jail. I’m down in the supermarket picking fights with randos just to feel alive.— The Man (@BeckyLynchWWE) November 17, 2018
