For once, wrestling fans were universally excited about a match. And now, they are collectively outraged.
Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey was a WrestleMania event that had us all excited. But on Raw, Vince McMahon pulled a diabolical switch-a-roo by suspending Lynch and replacing her with Charlotte Flair.
And the WWE Universe is very, very upset.
PATHETIC. So unnecessary to throw her in this match. Again, we won’t see Becky v Ronda, on a 1 v 1 match. The single most hyped up female match this company has had in YEARS(If not, EVER)— Rayao' (@UnRayao) February 12, 2019

Not only did Vince McMahon yank Lynch and inset Flair, but he announced The Queen as corporate's champion, even trolling Ronda Rousey s Raw went off the air.
So why have the women's Rumble in the first place.🤷🏼♂️— Siddharth siddu (@ItzSiddhu) February 12, 2019
more like oh we'll give the fans what they want, but doesn't listen to the crowd or listen to them on social media, decides to listen to his booking staff which just slowly is draining the company and this is why talent is requesting their release vince needs to stop— Skillmammu (@SkillMammu) February 12, 2019
However, saner minds from Twitter recognize what WWE is actually up to. This injustice will be used to enhance the story. Right now, people are losing their minds, as Flair has long been labeled as being privileged Now that she's working with the McMahons, it gives fans even more reason to hate her. But this is all in the name of creating a transcendental moment for Becky Lynch. For now, she's out, but it's only a matter of time until The Man gets her WrestleMania spot back. For several months it's been clear that WWE is aiming for a Triple Threat with Rousey, Flair, and Lynch, and by this time next month, well have it.
You wanna know why adding Charlotte works?— Justin LaBar (@JustinLaBar) February 12, 2019
1, Becky & Ronda are babyfaces....Charlotte, inserted by Vince, adds true heel to the mix.
2, She has name value, adds to the marquee.
3, Those 3 women provide more potential to the match, spots, for the FIRST EVER to main event Mania.
