At SummerSlam, Lynch failed to regain the Raw Women's Championship from Belair, but embraced her after the match, turning face in the process. After Belair was confronted by a returning Bayley and new allies Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky (formerly Io Shirai), Lynch aided Belair, cementing her face turn.
On 1 August, WWE issued a statement regarding Lynch suffering a separated shoulder in her match at SummerSlam; expected to be out of action for several months.
Speaking on an Instagram Live session with former WWE head writer Brian Gewirtz, Lynch repeatedly praised Gewirtz's new book, "There’s Just One Problem – True Tales from the Former, One-Time, 7th Most Powerful Person in the WWE." At one point, she noted that she's still writing her own.
“I’m still writing mine, and I’m really happy that when mine comes out, at least it won’t be in direct competition with yours because it’s so well-written and hilarious," Lynch said.
The Rock, who was also in the session, asked her when the book will be done, and she responded by saying, “Hopefully in the next couple of months. Now that I got a bad wing, I got a little bit more time to dedicate to it.”
Lynch shared her hope that she won't be out of action for a long time.
“Oh good, yeah. I feel like I’ve gotten a bunch more mobility in it. Because when it happened, it was so painful that I was like, ‘Oh no, I’m gonna be out for a long, long time.’ But now it’s healing up real quick, I’m feeling strong, I’m feeling good. So I’m hoping it won’t be much time at all," she said.
