The Man is out, and The Queen is in.

In a shocking turn of events, Mr. McMahon removed Becky Lynch from the WrestleMania Raw Women’s Title Match that she earned on the strength of her Royal Rumble Match victory, and Charlotte Flair has been handpicked to take her place. The Chairman’s decision came about after a contentious couple of weeks between Becky and the McMahon family, whose insistence that she obtain medical clearance for her injured knee led to a heated confrontation and an indefinite suspension for the former SmackDown Women’s Champion until she got the green light from WWE’s medical staff.

Doing so wasn’t enough to sway the immovable Mr. McMahon, however, especially after Becky attacked Stephanie McMahon on Raw one night before slapping Triple H on SmackDown LIVE, and The Chairman levied a 60-day suspension against The Man that would carry her past WrestleMania. Moments later, he introduced Charlotte as his pick to challenge Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at The Showcase of the Immortals, thus nixing one highly-anticipated matchup while setting the stage for a sequel to one of 2018’s most brutal, unexpected contests — a clash in which, coincidentally, Flair was a last-minute replacement for an injured Lynch as well.

Both champion and challenger will likely be hoping for a different result, as that Survivor Series bout ended in a disqualification in Ronda’s favor when a frustrated Flair unleashed an uncomfortable, prolonged attack with a steel chair and Kendo stick. Though Rousey technically escaped with the win, the savage showing revitalized Charlotte in the ensuing months and denied The Baddest Woman on the Planet a truly decisive victory. With no shortage of bad blood between the competitors, The Queen now has an opportunity to serve Rousey her first singles loss, take her championship and finish what she started. Of course, Rousey, with her long memory and vicious Armbar, has an opportunity of her own: To make Charlotte regret ever deciding to challenge her in the first place, let alone twice.

Tune in to WrestleMania to see whether Charlotte can take the Raw Women’s Title from Rousey when The Showcase of the Immortals streams live Sunday, April 7, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!

Becky Lynch makes her way to the ring to make her decision about whether she will apologize or not.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Becky Lynch is in the ring, but she will not be alone for long because Triple H and Stephanie McMahon make their way to the ring.

Stephanie says it has been a long night and she wants to know if cooler heads have prevailed. Will she get to live her dream or not. Hunter says they want this to work out. Stephanie says she meant that this could be the biggest match in Wrestlemania history. You have to accept the consequences of your actions. Will you say those two little words or will you throw away your moment in history?

Hunter tells Becky to shut them out because it has nothing to do with them. Don’t let strangers dictate your future. Their opinions don’t matter. What do you want? Do you want Wrestlemania? This is your moment?

Becky says she thinks they don’t want her near that match. She got advice whether she wanted it or not. She does not trust them and she got angry when she thought her chance was being taken away from her. She punched Stephanie and slapped Hunter. If all that keeps her from her dream is two little words . . .

I’m sorry.

Now that that nonsence is out of the way, her path to Ronda Rousey is clear. If anybody tries to steal her dream, they will be in the fight of their life. No one is taking her dream from her.

Hunter says she wouldn’t have it any other way. You are going to Wrestlemania.

Becky asks if that is it as Hunter and Stephanie leave the ring.

Becky tells Ron Ron is The Man versus the Baddest Person on the Planet at Wrestlemania.

Ronda Rousey makes her way to the ring

Vince McMahon makes his way to the stage and he wants this to stop. Before you do something silly, he wants to get something off his chest. It could be one of the greatest matches in WWE history but she does not like Becky’s attitude. Vince says that he is the man and the man has a tough decision to make. You are suspended for 60 days. That suspension runs out five days after Wrestlemania.

We need someone who knows their lane and will stay in it. We need someone who will take Ronda to the limit and we need Charlotte Flair.

Vince tells Ronda to get used to it because the conclusion will be Charlotte Flair as Raw Women’s Champion.

We go to the interview area and Alexa Bliss stops by. She is asked about the Royal Rumble match and whether she will be champion at Wrestlemania. Alexa asks Charly if she is trying to insult her. Alexa says she is not a champion, but a goddess.

Charlotte Flair shows up and she says the only reason why Alexa is the Raw Women’s champion is because Charlotte is on Smackdown. Alexa does not have the size, speed, or pedigree. To be the woman, you have to beat the woman.

Ric Flair shows up and she says that you might be the champion tonight, but Charlotte will be the champion tonight, tomorrow, Wrestlemania, the Monday after Wrestlemania and until she decides to hang it up.

Tonight’s SmackDown Women’s Championship is huge for Charlotte Flair. Not only is she competing in front of her hometown crowd, but she’s on the verge of making history by potentially becoming the first Superstar to hold the Divas, NXT, Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships.

The Queen has also revealed that tonight’s title bout against Natalya has deeply personal meaning. During an interview on Facebook Live Tuesday afternoon, an emotional Charlotte dedicated this match to her father, two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

“There’s only one person I could dedicate the win to, and that’s my dad,” she said. “I wouldn’t be here in WWE if it wasn’t for him.”

It has been an emotional few months for the Flairs, as the 16-time World Champion was hospitalized while battling severe health issues. While The Nature Boy is recovering, the gravity of the situation is not lost on Charlotte.

“When he was in the hospital, all I could think about was ‘My dad’s never going to see me wrestle again,’” she said.

Surely, the two-time WWE Hall of Famer will be keeping a close eye on tonight’s event deep in the heart of Flair Country.

Will Charlotte cap her Queen City homecoming with the SmackDown Women’s Championship? Find out tonight on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network!
