This week’s ending to Raw will go down as one of the most controversial in WWE history. After Becky Lynch was told all she had to do to get her WrestleMania match was apologise to Triple H and Stephanie McMahon, good ol’ Vinny Mac swooped down to take everything away from the Irish Lass Kicker. Despite saying sorry to WWE’s ultimate power couple, Vince McMahon told Lynch he didn’t like her attitude and suspended her, giving the Raw Women’s Title match at WrestleMania to none other than Charlotte Flair.
As Flair made her way to the stage, a huge smile broke out across my face. That wasn’t because I want to see Becky Lynch replaced by the female Roman Reigns. On the contrary, I want Becky to go one-on-one with Ronda Rousey while Charlotte Flair has a rematch with the SmackDown Women’s Champion, Asuka. No, I smiled because the WWE Universe booed the decision while Charlotte had a big Cheshire Cat grin on her face. While I don’t 100% agree with the booking choice, Vince McMahon is surely putting Becky Lynch in position to become the most over woman in the history of WWE while cementing Flair as the No.1 heel.
To fully understand what Vince is playing at, we need to think more like him (I know, scary thought). For some reason, Vince doesn’t like it when his superstars become popular without his divine intervention, and so he feels the best way for a wrestler to get over is by making himself the authority figure the good guys have to fight against — even when the story doesn’t need a McMahon at the helm. We don’t need to see Becky Lynch fight against Vince, but the fact she’s doing so does seem to indicate the Chairman sees something in her.
Likewise, Vince McMahon seems to believe the best way to become a mega heel is by aligning with the boss. It worked for The Rock, Seth Rollins, and Randy Orton, so they’re going to try it with Charlotte Flair as well, by the look of things. Whether you want to see the Queen main event WrestleMania or not, you can’t say she hasn’t been absolutely exceptional as the constant thorn in Becky Lynch’s side. Buddying up with Vince only makes us hate her more while our adoration for the Irish Lass Kicker grows.
I think it goes without saying Becky Lynch won’t actually be suspended during WrestleMania (unless Vince McMahon really does want us to tune out and jump on the AEW bandwagon for good), so expect her to turn the Raw Women’s Title match into a triple threat bout. Fans are up in arms about the whole situation, but this is one of those times where we need to just let things play out. Continue to boo Charlotte Flair, continue to cheer Becky’s name even when she’s not on screen, do whatever you darn-well feel in regards to Ronda Rousey — who has become a surprising afterthought in this feud. Do all this and more because it will only make Becky Lynch’s victory at WrestleMania 35 sweeter.
Vince McMahon obviously sees the Straight Fire in the Irish Lass Kicker or else he wouldn’t be going through all this trouble. Allow yourself to get infuriated by the Chairman’s booking decisions, and I promise you’ll see it’s all for the greater good of Becky Lynch in the end.
