Most WWE fans would agree that the hottest act on the card right now is the SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

She really can't do much wrong at the minute, from her in-ring skill, to her character work, to her fierce promos, the Irishwoman really has it all.

And she was set to take on the 'Baddest Woman on the Planet' Ronda Rousey this Sunday at Survivor Series, a match that could legitimately main event the show.

But things took a turn for the worse on Monday Night Raw this week, following Lynch locking her patented 'DisArmHer' on Rousey backstage.

Both brands women brawled in the ring to close the show, but out of nowhere, Lynch became bloodied from actions that were not initially caught on camera.

Whilst it enhanced the moment of the beatdown on Rousey and made Becky look like even more of a bad-ass, there were fears that she may have been significantly injured.

And those fears were confirmed on SmackDown, as Tom Phillips announced at the top of the show that a concussion and a 'broken face' would force Lynch out of the match at Survivor Series.

Becky Lynch addressed the WWE universe following an injury on Raw - and selected a new opponent for Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series.

So a new opponent for the UFC Hall of Famer was needed, and Lynch was able to hand-pick her replacement.

After running-down Rousey on the microphone again to the delight of the crowd in St. Louis, Lynch eyed up her peers - before selecting her old friend and biggest foe, Charlotte Flair.

What was more shocking though was that Lynch and Flair embraced in the ring, which may not have been planned - after all it's only been two weeks since their hellacious Last Man Standing match at Evolution.

Rousey against Lynch is what we wanted, but Rousey against Flair is a fantastic substitute, and recently there's been major talk of giving that bout the stage of a WrestleMania main event.

But with the recent backing of the Lasskicker, there's every chance that she will get Flair's spot at the Grandest Stage Of Them All instead - in which case the unfortunate injury could prove to be a blessing in disguise.
