With a title shot at the 2019 Royal Rumble hanging in the balance, Becky Lynch, Carmella, and Charlotte Flair brought the best out of one another on Tuesday night.
In the main event of this week’s SmackDown, Lynch and Flair didn’t miss beat while Carmella kept up step for step with her more heralded opponents.

The live crowd at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena in Jacksonville, Florida would even bless the match with a ‘this is awesome chant’.
Following nearly 20 minute triple threat match, Lynch was able to get the best of Flair and Carmella. The Queen flattened Lynch with a spear but was quickly taken out by Carmella with a super-kick to the chin. With Flair out of it, The Man recovered and trapped The Princess of Staten Island in a fighting ending Dis-Arm-Her.
Awesome stuff in the main event from @MsCharlotteWWE, @CarmellaWWE and @BeckyLynchWWE, but only #TheMan has a date with Asuka at the Rumble! pic.twitter.com/zpPl5a1F0i— TDE Wrestling (@totaldivaseps) January 9, 2019
Lynch will now challenge SmackDown women’s champion Asuka at the Royal Rumble in three weeks.
The 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view (PPV) takes place on Sun., Jan. 27, 2019, at Chase Field in Phoenix Arizona.
With the women’s Royal Rumble rumored to be possibly headlining the Jan. pay-per-view, is it a surprise that Lynch may not be a part of the high profile match? Is there still a way for WWE’s hottest star to wiggle her way into the Rumble?
