Smackdown Women’s Championship Match: Becky Lynch (c) vs. Charlotte Flair

What Should Happen: The custom Becky Lynch poster from Smackdown:

What Will Happen: While I’m usually pretty quick to assume WWE will do the thing that makes the least sense to me, building up Becky Lynch after all this time and pushing through an angle where she and Charlotte Flair get uncommon reactions for playing very clear heel/face roles only to take the championship off of Lynch at an Australian house show a few weeks before Evolution seems like the worst possible idea. Lynch vs. Flair is one of the hottest stories in the company featuring two of the best current performers in your women’s division, and they should (if we’re being honest) be the main event of Evolution. No amount of the Bella Twins calling Ronda Rousey a loser or whatever can change that. So I say this will either end with Becky actually doing something underhanded to retain her championship (and being cheered for it), or a non-finish to set up an Evolution match with a stipulation. I hope it’s something in the way of 2-out-of-3 falls as opposed to “last woman standing” or something.

Staff Picks

Bill Hanstock – This might be the toughest match on the card to predict. Becky SHOULD retain, but WWE doesn’t love anything more than letting Charlotte win titles. But since this isn’t technically a PPV, I’m sticking with Becky. WAR BECKY.
