Backstage News Regarding Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks At Royal Rumble
Last night on RAW, we saw WWE set up a match of RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks for Royal Rumble. Originally it was rumored that Ronda Rousey vs Charlotte Flair might take place at Royal Rumble. We have seen multiple promos of Rousey & Flair calling each other on TV after their Survivor Series match. But that plan is no more in the works.
Dave Meltzer on the Wrestling Observer Radio noted that “So, they’ve revamped the Royal Rumble card,” Meltzer said. “Originally it was going to be Ronda Rousey and Charlotte as they did all those interviews to build for it and that was changed. Ronda Rousey did want to work with Sasha Banks. She likes her and she thinks she’s good so that is a shoot. It’s not official that they will do a three-way at WrestleMania [with Rousey vs. Flair vs. Lynch]. I was told that it was not official, it is under consideration. Because it’s under consideration, the decision was made to pull the [Flair vs. Rousey] match from the Royal Rumble.”
Ronda Rousey vs Sasha Banks is pulled in by the likes of Rousey herself. As far Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch is still not locked in for the WrestleMania 35 and Rousey vs. Flair vs. Lynch is the idea into consideration, but the former one sounds better for Mania & we hope to see that.
