The storyline for the Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania 35 took another turn tonight.
Becky Lynch was given another storyline suspension by Vince McMahon, with the 60-day suspension set to expire after WrestleMania 35. Vince then brought out Charlotte Flair and claimed that Charlotte would instead challenge for Ronda Rousey’s Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania.
During his promo, Vince called Charlotte someone with charisma, someone with charm, and someone who knows their lane and stays in it. Vince raised Charlotte’s hand and said that’s what Rousey will be seeing when Charlotte defeats her.
Dave Meltzer has been reporting that Rousey vs. Lynch vs. Charlotte is the plan for WrestleMania.
There was a show-long angle on Raw where Stephanie McMahon and Triple H gave Lynch an ultimatum: she had to apologize for attacking them last week or lose her spot at WrestleMania. She apologized at the end of the episode, but she said “now that that nonsense is out of the way” after. Rousey came out to the ring before she and Lynch were interrupted by Vince.
Lynch and Charlotte both sent out in-character tweets after Raw. Lynch wrote: “Complete and utter bullsh*t.”
Charlotte tweeted: “I’m going to #WrestleMania… ISN’T THIS EXCITING?!?!”
