Currently, it’s expected that RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey will be defending her title against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch in a Triple Threat match at WrestleMania 35. As it stands, the bout is simply a singles match between Rousey and Flair. However, if Lynch defeats Flair in one-on-one action this weekend (Sun. March 10, 2019) at the Fastlane pay-per-view (PPV), she’ll be added to the match.
The expectation is that Lynch will, one way or another, be added to the match at WrestleMania. According to Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter, there are more twists that will come to the storyline. No specifics as to what those twists might be were given. As for the finish of the match, WWE has several options. Meltzer notes that it will largely depend on what Rousey’s final date with WWE will be.
“The Rowdy One” is not scheduled for any WWE appearances after the post-WrestleMania episode of Monday Night RAW. Meltzer then discussed how physical the angles between the three women have been as of late. Lynch, Rousey, and Flair have been going the extra mile to try and make things look as real as possible.
At Elimination Chamber, Rousey told Lynch to hit her with the kendo stick as hard as she could. “The Irish Lass Kicker” obliged, and Rousey had seven stitches on her elbow as a result. Rousey also asked Flair to hit her as hard as she could with the kendo stick, as she wanted to have real welts, bruises, and blood from the attack.
In regards to Rousey attacking Lynch on RAW, Rousey was reportedly told to do everything she’d do in a real fight. She was also told to fight with real intensity. The only sidebar was that no punches or kicks were allowed to Lynch’s face. Despite this, Lynch still took a stiff knee to the face. The point of the angle was for Lynch to take Rousey’s best punishment and still show up to confront Flair the next night on SmackDown Live.
