Vince McMahon suspended Becky Lynch for 60 days to close out Raw on Monday night, and The Man has reacted just as you might have imagined.
Plans for WrestleMania change behind the scenes. They change more than any of us will ever know. However, it is common knowledge that for the majority of the past 12 months, WWE planned to have Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey main event this year's chapter of the biggest show in professional wrestling.
Those plans changed during the build to Survivor Series. A red hot Becky Lynch was due to take on Rousey at the PPV. An unfortunate injury meant Flair took her place, and the match presumably being saved for 'Mania took place five months early. Since then, with the momentum Lynch has being gathering, it made perfect sense to simply switch the matches around. That looked like it would be the plan up until this week's Raw.
Monday night's show ended with Vince McMahon informing Lynch that she is suspended for 60 days for attacking Stephanie McMahon and Triple H. That suspension will not end until after WrestleMania. With that, the chairman revealed that Flair will be taking her place. Even though this is all part of the story on the road to WrestleMania, The Man has taken to Twitter to vent her frustration.
While Lynch has become known for being brutal and honest on Twitter, her tweet after Raw took that to the next level. It was only four words long and even though we have had to blur out the last of those words, we're sure you can figure out what it says. We wholeheartedly echo that sentiment. We wanted Lynch versus Rousey at WrestleMania and now it looks like that will not be the case.
As frustrating as the angle is in its current state, we are intrigued to see where this goes. Worst case scenario, Lynch's knee injury is legitimate and we really don't see her again until after WrestleMania. That is highly unlikely, and we fully expect The Man to be reinstated into the match somehow. To fight the odds stacked against her by Mr. McMahon just like Stone Cold used to do. Whatever happens, we sincerely hope it all ends with Lynch becoming Raw Women's Champion at WrestleMania.
