You’re the sort of person who reads backstage news on wrestling websites, and that means you’ve probably already had between five and ten conversations about whether or not Charlotte Flair should be added to the WrestleMania match between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey for the Raw Women’s Championship. Ever since the match began to seem like a possibility, there’s been talk of Charlotte joining it. According to Dave Meltzer at the Wrestling Observer, the current plan at WWE is in fact to add Charlotte and make the match a Triple Threat.
Meltzer notes that originally the plan was to build to Charlotte Flair versus Ronda Rousey one-on-one at WrestleMania 35, but the popularity of The Man Becky Lynch changed that plan, but not so much that they plan to leave Charlotte out.
As we all know, Becky and Ronda were originally supposed to have their one-on-one face-off at Survivor Series, until Becky got hurt while invading Raw and Charlotte had to replace her in the match. According to Meltzer, the plan for Becky’s match with Ronda didn’t change when it switched to Charlotte. Becky was supposed to attack Ronda with a kendo stick and get DQed, then keep beating her up after the match.
After Survivor Series, says Meltzer, there was talk of taking Charlotte out of the Mania match and just doing Becky Lynch versus Ronda Rousey (which is the current officially announced plan), but they’ve since changed their minds and decided Charlotte will be added via an upcoming storyline. Of course, that plan may still change between now and WrestleMania.
