In the main event of Monday Night Raw this week, WWE changed the dynamics of the main event of WrestleMania 35.
In the show's main event Stephanie McMahon thought Ronda Rousey had vacated the Raw Women's Championship, so she booked a match between Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at Fastlane to decide who would be the new champion.
The match would only happen if Becky signed a holds harmless agreement, which she did, but then Ronda came storming down to the ring wanting the title back which she never vacated.
Stephanie handed Rousey back the title, changing the dynamics of the upcoming match between Lynch and Flair at Fastlane, as well as the Raw Women's title match at WrestleMania.
Lynch vs Flair at Fastlane will no longer be for the Raw Women's Championship, but there's still a lot on the line for both superstars, and a reason for each of them to win the clash.
- Arn Anderson fired by WWE for letting Alicia Fox wrestle whilst intoxicated
- Torrie Wilson to be inducted into WWE Hall of Fame
- Ronda Rousey expected to make heel turn before WrestleMania 35
If The Man wins at Fastlane, she will be added to the main event of WrestleMania, making it a triple threat. However, if The Queen wins, it will remain her vs Rowdy at The Showcase of the Immortals.
Rousey then started to do something we've never seen her do in WWE before, she started to turn heel, telling the crowd that she didn't care about their fantasies.
Ronda then lost it at the booing of the crowd and assaulted Becky, injuring her arm and standing over her as Charlotte watched on from the ring apron.
Stephanie then did an interview backstage where she suggested that, due to Rowdy's actions, she could possibly be fired if she doesn't win at WrestleMania later this year.
The Raw Women's Champion even continued to assault The Man after Raw went off the air.
This is a great twist to the Raw Women's title storyline between Rousey, Lynch, and Flair. It also indicates that WrestleMania's main event will be a triple threat as it has been speculated for months unless WWE crazily pulls Becky from the spot.
However, it does remain unexplained as to why Charlotte has earned a title shot, and Lynch's Royal Rumble win seems to have been forgotten as well.
It's good that Ronda is being given a chance to play a heel against the popularity of The Man, as she seems more suited to the roll.
Fingers crossed WWE is able to keep the momentum of this segment for this storyline in a bottle and keep on using it between now and WrestleMania.News Now - Sport News
