Ronda Rousey will defend her Raw Women’s Championship against Flair and Lynch in a triple-threat, in what is rumored to be the main event of WWE’s biggest show of the year.
Despite an injured leg, Lynch came out hot and did everything she could to shut up Flair, who spent most of the beginning of the match mocking Lynch. The two competitors went blow-for-blow and hold-for-hold during the match. Lynch gets a Dis-Arm-Her on Flair, but the legacy manages to reverse the hold, and get Lynch into a Figure 4. Before Lynch could tap out to the submission, Rousey entered the arena and interfered with the match, breaking the hold.
Due to disqualification because of Rousey’s involvement, Lynch was awarded the win, and will go to WrestleMania.
Flair was added to Rousey’s WrestleMania title match after Lynch refused to let WWE doctors look at the leg injury she sustained at Royal Rumble. Rousey wasn’t happy about the move, and laid down the belt until The Authority put Lynch back in. Mistaking the move as Rousey vacating the title, the match for the Raw Women’s Championship was set for Fastlane: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair.
Rousey again complained that she was misunderstood, and finally, after a move set that would confuse a chess pro, the Fastlane match was set with a specific stipulation: Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair. If Becky wins, the Raw Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania becomes a triple-threat. If Becky loses, she’s out of the match and her suspension continues.
WrestleMania 35 is set for April 7, live from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
