Ronda Rousey is the Raw Women’s Champion and it’s already been made official that she will defend her Championship at TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs against Nia Jax, but once she has gotten past The Irresistible Force, WWE could be planning a huge match at The Royal Rumble.
This past weekend at Survivor Series, Rousey won her match via disqualification against Charlotte, but the former Women’s Champion then unleashed quite the beating on the former UFC Champion which obviously set up another bout between the two women in the future.
According to Dave Meltzer on The Wrestling Observer, WWE could be planning to stage this match at The Royal Rumble, which would be the perfect way to set up Becky Lynch vs Charlotte vs Ronda Rousey if that is the route WWE is looking to take for WrestleMania.
“So Ronda Rousey and Charlotte, from the way the interview went it looks like they’re probably going to do something at the Royal Rumble as well.”
“It looks like they’re going to build to that and then the Becky Lynch match at Mania maybe. But that’s kinda like the deal I guess they could do a three-way at Mania as well but basically that’s what I was told was Nia Jax, Charlotte Flair and there are still other pay-per-views in between for other potential matches so that’s kinda like the deal there,” he said via Ringsidenews.
Lynch and Rousey are already expected to main event the biggest event of the year, but after the attack that Charlotte unleashed two days ago, Rousey has aimed much of her abuse on Social Media in Charlotte’s direction and has stated that she is looking for revenge.
If Lynch interferes in their match at The Rumble then it would be the perfect way to set up their match, the only issue here is the fact that the winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble will go on to face one of the Women’s Champions, this would mean that if Rousey, Lynch, and Charlotte are set to collide in a triple threat match then one of the women will have to drop their Women’s Championship ahead of the show.
Either way, it ensures that The Royal Rumble this year will definitely deliver since Rousey refuses to back down and is currently seething when it comes to exacting revenge on Charlotte Flair.
