Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair added to WWE Fastlane

The road to the Raw Women's Championship match at WrestleMania 35 will include Becky Lynch facing Charlotte Flair at Fastlane.

Lynch vs. Charlotte was announced for Fastlane on tonight's go-home edition of Raw. The stipulation is that -- if she defeats Charlotte at Fastlane -- Lynch will be added to the Raw Women's title match at WrestleMania, officially making it a triple threat between Ronda Rousey, Lynch, and Charlotte.

Lynch and Charlotte's match at Fastlane was originally announced as being for the vacant Raw Women's Championship, but that was changed when Rousey appeared in tonight's main event angle. Rousey said she didn't vacate the title when she left it in the ring last week, she gave Stephanie a week to think about it and add Lynch to the WrestleMania match. Rousey told Stephanie to give her the title back, and Stephanie gave it to her.

Rousey cut a promo where she turned against the crowd. Rousey said she did everything she could to respect the business, but the fans booed her out of the Staples Center and people chant for Lynch while Rousey's working her ass off to entertain them. Rousey said she could break Lynch and Charlotte's noses if she so much as sneezed in their direction -- and the fans know it.

That led to Rousey kicking Charlotte and attacking Lynch. She put Lynch in an armbar three times, with Charlotte backing away instead of getting involved.

Stephanie made Lynch sign a "hold harmless agreement" on Raw to wrestle with her storyline knee injury.

Fastlane is taking place at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio on Sunday. Here's the updated card:

  • WWE Champion Daniel Bryan defending against Kevin Owens
