The build to Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36 officially began on tonight's episode of Raw.

After Lynch retained her Raw Women's Championship against Asuka on the show, Baszler appeared and kickstarted the build to WrestleMania. She attacked Lynch from behind, took her mouth guard off, and then bit Lynch in the back of the neck. Baszler's face was smeared in red after biting her.

The angle then continued with Lynch refusing to get into an ambulance and instead driving away in it.

Dave Meltzer reported after the Royal Rumble that Lynch vs. Baszler was planned for WrestleMania. Baszler entered the women's Royal Rumble match as the 30th entrant and made it to the final two before being eliminated by Charlotte Flair.

WrestleMania 36 is taking place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida on April 5. Brock Lesnar defending the WWE Championship against Drew McIntyre is the first match that's been officially confirmed for the show. Lesnar will also defend his title against Ricochet at Super ShowDown later this month.
