Becky Lynch’s time in Phoenix consisted of two parts. She lost to Asuka in the first match of the night, but she later went on to win the 2019 Women’s Royal Rumble match. This was at Vince McMahon’s demands and insistence.
The man is currently suspended, but she will very likely find her way back in the WrestleMania main event regardless of the matter.
Dave Meltzer discussed this creative decision on Wrestling Observer Radio where he revealed why Vince McMahon made the decision to have The Man win the Royal Rumble match. Not only that, but The Man is obviously the “chosen one” in WWE now.
“How does anyone watch TV and think that Charlotte is the chosen one when it is so obvious that Becky Lynch is the chosen one?”
“[Vince McMahon] completely did [change his mind]. He changes his mind every week!”
“If you watch the TV it’s so clear […] you know the whole thing on I mean the whole thing is if they would have had Charlotte win the Royal Rumble — if –okay? It wouldn’t made sense. It just wouldn’t made sense as far as the storyline goes.”
“Vince was insistent, absolutely insistent that Becky Lynch had to win the Royal Rumble even though in that sense they had to do a storyline that then negated it even though she’s gonna get back in later. But the whole thing was that he was so insistent that the story made no sense because he was so insistent that she had to win. You know what? He was probably right in the sense that it was probably the right thing to do.”
Becky Lynch is very likely to have a great 2019. She is “99% likely” to win the RAW Women’s Title to close out the show of shows. This was all according to Vince McMahon’s plan. We just get to see how the WWE puts everything together.
