At WWE Fastlane 2019 in Cleveland, Becky Lynch will take on Charlotte Flair one more time, and the stakes couldn’t be higher.
If you spend too much time trying to unpack Becky Lynch’s road to WWE WrestleMania, you’ll get a headache trying to untangle all the ways the McMahon Family has tried to not-so-subtly prevent the Women’s Rumble winner from main eventing the Show of Shows.
This Sunday at WWE Fastlane 2019, Becky will have to put her Rumble win on the line – something top babyfaces, such as Roman Reigns, have been forced to do in the past –against Charlotte Flair. If Becky defeats “The Queen” yet again, she will main event WrestleMania 35 in a Triple Threat against Ronda Rousey, who reclaimed her Raw Women’s Championship on this week’s episode, and Charlotte.
But if Becky loses, she’s out of WrestleMania. Dream over.
There’s simply no way to have this match at WrestleMania without involving Becky in it. She has “WrestleMANia” shirts, for goodness sakes, and upstaged John Cena himself a couple of months ago. Becky has worked tirelessly to promote her feud with Rousey, whose responses have largely been awkward “penis envy” tweets, essentially forcing WWE to turn her heel.
Despite how confused members of the WWE Universe are, everyone is still cheering for “Becky! Becky! Becky!” to win the title at WrestleMania, and here are three reasons why she absolutely must win at Fastlane. (And, no, a no-contest win doesn’t cut it.)
