Becky Lynch added to Raw Women's title match at WrestleMania 35


Becky Lynch is officially going to WrestleMania.

Lynch defeated Charlotte by DQ tonight when Ronda Rousey came in and broke up a figure four attempt by Charlotte by stomping on Lynch’s chest. Per the stipulations, Lynch had to win the match in order to get into the WrestleMania title match. Once the ref called for the bell, Rousey simply left and walked toward the aisle, pointing at the WrestleMania sign. The triple threat match was then made official by the announcers.

Lynch won the right to challenge the Raw women’s champion, Ronda Rousey, when she won the Royal Rumble in January. However, after she confronted the McMahons and refused to get her injured knee looked at (which led to an apology that Stephanie and Triple H accepted) Vince McMahon came out and handed Lynch a 60-day suspension that would run through WrestleMania. He then introduced Rousey’s new opponent, Charlotte.

Eventually, Stephanie McMahon cancelled the suspension and agreed to put Lynch in the WrestleMania match, but only if she could defeat Charlotte at Fastlane and sign a hold harmless agreement, as in storyline she had reinjured her knee.
