Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania may not be happening after all following Survivor Series

It seems that the much-awaited match between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania won’t be happening after all.  Due to the post-match brutalizing of Ronda Rousey at the hands of Charlotte Flair, plans might have changed.

Dave Meltzer talked about this on Wrestling Observer Radio, where he mentioned how the match between Becky and Ronda might not be happening at Wrestlemania. He continued by saying that WWE might have had this happen to get Charlotte Flair over with the fans.

Both Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey were already really over. Flair was a little bit cold off her feud with Becky Lynch, so this was how they got her back, according to Meltzer.

Ronda needed to get her revenge on Charlotte more than Becky Lynch did, in theory. So they just might do the match at Wrestlemania. Or the match could end up being a threeway at Wrestlemania. That would be the likely compromise.

He didn’t know what they wanted except for WWE wanting three super-over women when all of that was over. They thought they had two, and Charlotte was the third.

He would then go on to say the match and entire scenario was in order to get Charlotte over to where she is viable. The thing with her and Rousey wasn’t planned to be a one-shot affair.

    The main event of WM should be AJ Styles vs. Daniel Bryan. But it won’t be.

    Becky deserves a big match at Mania, not a match with garbage Nia, not a throw away tag match or part of the battle royal. She deserves a big match against Ronda with Becky going over. That’s the story, that’s what needs to happen.

    They need to build on Charlotte being the vet (and a Flair) and on Rhonda wanting payback. The rematch needs to end with Charlotte in an armbar about to tap with Rouseys shoulders down for the 3 count.

    Rhonda loses strong Flair wins exactly how the buildup projects and 3rd match with Rousey finally going over at SummerSlam.

    I disagree.
    I think this helps set it up. Heel Charlotte will cheat to beat Becky before Royal Rumble.
    Becky wins Royal Rumble, everyone expects her to face Charlotte at ‘Mania, she chooses Rousey instead.

    Or possibly, on Raw tomorrow, Nia gets her title shot, and takes advantage of a broken Rousey, then Rousey goes on to win the rumble to face Lynch at ‘Mania.

    They could go triple threat, but those are the two paths to it regardless, and they’re both still wide open.

    The plan was always for it to be Ronda vs Charlotte to close out Mania. A 3 way would mask any flaws in Ronda’s game. If that happened, I’d feel bad for Asuka because her planned title match would be out the window. Unless they pull the trigger on Sasha vs Bayley, they’ll both be buried on this card and it would lead to more speculation about her leaving soon.

  • Becky Lynch is going to be a little busy at Mania because she’ll be beating Lesnar for the Uni title that night.
