Current creative plans for Becky Lynch including WrestleMania 35

After last night’s confrontation with Stephanie McMahon, Dave Meltzer of F4WOnline has revealed more details around Becky Lynch’s current role and creative direction with WrestleMania 35 in the pipeline.

“The idea very much is when this gets going that Stephanie is a heel and they are doing — it is the beginning of kind of a Stephanie in a heel thing trying to hold down Becky because they only know one way to do this.”

In terms of plans for WrestleMania 35:

“The original [plan was] Becky Lynch was beating Ronda Rousey. I assume Becky Lynch is still beating Ronda Rousey in the match. Perhaps they do something where she beats Charlotte Flair and they could come back with Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey in a singles [match] and Ronda will stay for an extra month. That’s certainly possible, that’s maybe even the way to do it. Either way I wouldn’t worry about that.”

    But… Daniel Bryan was a rehash of Austin’s run?

    What’s this “Rousey will stay for an extra month”?

    Wasn’t Dave the one saying that the FOX deal basically included “Rousey must be on Smackdown”?

    See I do not necessarily take any of this as Stephanie being a heel. And if that was indeed WWE’s intention, it was poorly executed. The way that segment was structured and the way Stephanie delivered her lines, she actually came across as a sympathetic baby face. Maybe it will transition into a heel angle, but right now, I do not see how anyone could take that segment as a Stephanie heel action.

    I would even go as far as to say the segment with HHH on Smackdown, while more negative towards Lynch, was not a heel promo on his part. It came across in a similar style to his promo with Rollins a few weeks ago and Vinces promo with Styles, where by they were being negative to set a fire under those guys.

    nah they’re rehashing daniel bryan. I would bet good money they’ll do the thing where Becky riles Setphanie into a match, and if she wins she gets to be inserted into Flair vs Rousey to make it a triple threat. That gives Steph her mania match while elevating Becky by having her win twice in one night

  • Jon Poyser

    I guess the writers have been watching footage on the network as it seems there rehashing 1998 with Austin’s run to the title should we expect Sasha to turn heel on Becky and call herself dudette love

  • Because that’s what Becky really needs, a feud with Stephanie. Although it was nice to see somebody finally do something to her, hope Becky hurts her.
