Becky Lynch ‘absolutely’ wants her match with Charlotte Flair to main event Evolution

All signs point to Ronda Rousey and Nikki Bella’s Raw Women’s title match going on last at Evolution, WWE’s historic all-women’s pay-per-view (PPV) event in Long Island on Oct. 28.

But that hasn’t officially been announced or anything, and a lot of fans are still holding out hope the longer running SmackDown Women’s championship rivalry between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair might get that spot.

The blue brand’s champ is obviously one of those people. As Lynch told The Baltimore Sun when asked about the event, and their Last Woman Standing match:

“This is what I envisioned when I came over to WWE. I always felt that I wanted to be the women to be the coolest thing on TV. I wanted to make it that way. Through everybody’s hard work, past present and future with NXT and the Mae Young Classic, this has been deserved. It’s something that I think the fans are going to really enjoy. They’re going to really enjoy it a whole lot more if the SmackDown women’s champ is main eventing it and walks out with the title.

[It’s] Absolutely [important to me to main event Evolution]. But it’s important to me that I main event every show. I want to be the main event of all shows. That’s what I came over to do — to be the main event of WrestleMania, to be the main event of SmackDown, to be the main event of Raw, to be the main event of every single pay-per-view. And especially for something that’s this historic, I feel like myself and Charlotte have had such a storied history that it only seems fitting that we main event.”

Her reasoning sounds good, but she’s preaching to the choir. Fortunately, in the likely instance Rousey vs. Bella main events a week from Sunday, this will give the Badlass ammunition for her a future feud with Ronda. And Becky has the right outlook on that, too:

“I look at Ronda Rousey as a slot machine. The harder you kick her, the more money that comes out of her.”

As the kids say, YAS KWEEN!
