Now that Ronda has chosen WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair, many immediately began to ask where that left WWE RAW Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch. As she defends her championship against Lita, WWE wasted no time announcing an Elimination Chamber match to determine the winner’s next challenger for WrestleMania. So far, Bianca Belair, Rhea Ripley, Nikki A.S.H, Doudrop, and Liv Morgan have all been announced. That still leaves one spot which had social media in an uproar trying to figure out the last piece to the chamber puzzle. Here are a few picks I believe will take that last spot:
DISCLAIMER: I do not believe Becky is losing that championship to Lita at Elimination Chamber. Therefore, this article is structured around that victory.
Asuka has been on speculation to come back for months now. Many expected her to be a surprise entree in the Women’s Royal Rumble and even go on to win it all. With plans going in a different direction, the options for Asuka’s return moving forward are endless. Personally, I would like to see Asuka and Becky reignite their feud and pick off where they left off. Remember, it was Asuka that became champion when Becky announced her pregnancy. All in all, the story is already there.
Bayley is someone we have not seen in quite some time as well. Another competitor many were expecting to return at Royal Rumble. With this, it’s all about the timing. One thing about Bayley is that she is always paying attention to every single woman in the division. This could be a great way to bring her back into the mix and stamp her ticket to WrestleMania. You know I never bet against the 4.
Lacey Evans has spent time in the gym lately while sending a clear message to Becky and her championship. If it’s one person that has never taken her eyes off of Becky and the chances of becoming champion, it is Lacey Evans. She has the character and the ring ability to win it all, making her path to WrestleMania quite clear. She is also pretty familiar with Becky in and out of the ring, which gives her a slight advantage in her return.
This would be a perfect time for an NXT call up and why not Raquel Gonzalez? Honestly, her time in NXT has run its course. I want to see Gonzalez get back in the ring with Rhea Ripley and this match is the perfect opportunity. She is also someone that could pose a major threat to Becky and her reign. This could be her moment to shine and become WWE RAW Women’s Champion for the first time at the grand stage of them all.
Hear me out. This may be a bit controversial, but anything can happen. What is really stopping Ronda from this moment? What is stopping Ronda from winning yet another WrestleMania moment and picking both Becky and Charlotte to face for their respective championships? As much as many would say this could be a waste of opportunity, I believe this could actually be the right direction. I’ll leave you all with that.
