RUMOR – Becky Lynch To Drop Smackdown Women’s Title & Planned Follow Up With Nia Jax

In this week’s edition of the “Wrestling Observer Newsletter”, Dave Meltzer revealed that with Lynch’s injury and the insertion of Ronda Rousey v Charlotte Flair into the Survivor Series lineup, Vince McMahon has made the decision to have Rousey v Lynch be the headlining match for Wrestlemania 35.

As such, the current plan is to have Becky drop the Smackdown Women’s Title in order to enter and win the 2019 Royal Rumble. It is not clear whether she’d lose the title in a match or be forced to forfeit the strap due to her injuries.

Interestingly enough – Meltzer further stated that the WWE is losing to continue the heat generated by Nia injuring Becky on Raw. There has been significant talk on having the final two entrants in the Royal Rumble be Nia Jax and Becky Lynch.

At this point, take this as a rumor only. LOP will provide additional information as it becomes available.
