Here Are Some Backstage Rumors About WWE Women’s Championship Plans After WrestleMania


Now that all three women have been arrested one last time on Monday Night Raw, the absurdly long and overbooked build to the Main Event of WrestleMania is just about over, and we can focus on the match itself, and of course what comes after it. Naturally, Dave Meltzer at the Wrestling Observer has added his two cents about what we should expect on that front, with the usual caveat that you never you never really know how much Dave knows, especially when it comes to the women’s division. Nevertheless, I’m going to summarize what he had to say, and if he’s at all right, these are major spoilers, so don’t keep reading unless you’re cool with that.

According to Meltzer, Becky Lynch is the planned winner for the match. He says that’s been pretty much the plan for months, since her big rise to popularity. So Becky is expected to walk out of WrestleMania with both the Raw and Smackdown Women’s Championships, but who she actually pins in the Winner-Take-All match depends on whether or not Ronda is leaving after Mania, something Meltzer doesn’t seem to have a definitive answer on.

The story after WrestleMania will be whichever former champ didn’t get pinned coming after Becky in pursuit of her unfairly-lost title. So if Ronda is staying, Becky will pin Charlotte, and afterwards Ronda will demand a one-on-one rematch with Becky. If Ronda’s leaving, then Becky pins Ronda at Mania, and Charlotte’s the one who demands her title back, continuing their never-ending feud. Meltzer also notes that there are no plans to unify the titles, but they also haven’t decided how long Becky will hold both before they split them up again.

As Meltzer is always quick to remind us (protecting his own reputation in the process), there’s always the chance that Vince will change things at the last minute. Intuitively, though, all of this sounds pretty likely, and we’ll find out on Sunday where things are headed.
