WWE Possibly Moving Rousey vs. Lynch at The Royal Rumble, Possible Replacement For Survivor Series

Ronda Rousey
WWE will need to make it official, but it seems that Becky Lynch won’t be able to compete at Survivor Series due to suffering a broken nose and a possible concussion. Therefore, as Bryan Alvarez noted on Wrestling Observer Live, the show must go on for Rousey.

“I don’t know if [Becky Lynch] is out of the match. I was told there is a change to the women’s match. That means she’s being replaced or they’re going to do a three-way to protect her. I don’t know what they’re going to do. But it does appear that a change has been made and [Lynch] may be off the show.

At this time, WWE is still waiting to find out what Becky Lynch’s diagnosis is, but it’s apparently more than they first thought and as we previously reported the thought was. Therefore, it’s likely WWE will have to shift things around but still keep Ronda Rousey in a match.

“So apparently at this exact moment they don’t know the full extent of Becky’s injuries but they are currently discussing a bunch of options with the presumption that she might be off the show Sunday.”

He went on to discuss the fact that Ronda Rousey is the face of WWE, especially after Roman Reigns’ departure due to leukemia. The fact that Survivor Series is taking place in Los Angeles makes it even more imperative that Ronda Rousey is on the show. It might not be ideal, but there are already rumors that they could always move Lynch vs Rousey to the Royal Rumble event. But it looks like WWE could have to figure something else out for Ronda Rousey to do this Sunday.

WWE is battling a few options around to figure out what they’re going to do.

Bryan Alvarez mentioned one plausible option was brought up on Wrestling Observer Live which is worth visiting. After all, Nia Jax won the women’s battle royal at WWE Evolution which promised her a future title shot. With Lynch supposedly off the card and WWE needing a match for Ronda Rousey, they might go with a quick fix.

“If you guys recall at Evolution this person [texting in] notes Nia Jax won a future title shot. So Nia may have inadvertently injured Becky Lynch and ends up with a match against Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series. She didn’t do it on purpose, but can you imagine?”

“You know what? Things like this have happened a million times throughout wrestling history.”
