It took a really, REALLY long time, but that whole #DivasRevolution thing might just work out after all.
Focusing on compelling characters in relateable, non-sensational stories, Becky Lynch and Charlotte (along with her Hall of Famer father, Ric Flair) have become one of the best angles in WWE.
The pair were called up from NXT together, and bonded with another alumna of developmental in former Divas champion Paige. The Brit turned on them both (kind of) after the blonde won the Divas championshiop. Becky tried to make peace before siding with Charlotte, only for the Nature Girl to start acting more and more like her legendary dad - the self-proclaimed Dirtiest Player in the Game.
Even still, the Irishwoman gave her friend every opportunity to do the right thing, the right way. When she was rewarded for it by being attacked from behind following a non-title victory over Charlotte. A rematch with the belt on the line was won by the champ thanks to interference from Flair.
Now, Becky has demanded another shot. And after some heelish avoidance, the Flairs have accepted. It'll happen at the pay-per-view in Orlando this Sunday, January 24.
Here's the updated Royal Rumble match card:
- Royal Rumble (WWE world heavyweight championship)
- Dean Ambrose vs. Kevin Owens (Intercontinental championship)
- Alberto Del Rio vs. Kalisto (US championship)
- Charlotte vs. Becky Lynch (Divas championship)
