The road to WrestleMania is getting more interesting by the minute. Breaking news from tonight’s Monday Night RAW, as the RAW Women’s Championship has been VACATED. Becky Lynch and Charlotte will battle it out at WWE Fastlane to determine the new champion.
Last week’s episode of RAW saw the now former champion Ronda Rousey lay the belt at the feet of Stephanie McMahon. Seemingly leaving the company high and dry, and without a champion. Pending the singing of a “hold harmless” agreement from Becky Lynch, this match will be official and we will see a new champion come this Sunday!
As if that wasn’t big enough, The Shield reunion is back on! It was announced on RAW after the “Hounds of Justice” fought off Bobby Lashley, Drew McIntyre, and Baron Corbin. This will mark the in-ring return of Roman Reigns, who announced last week that he is in remission. Reigns has not wrestled a match since earlier October of last year.
These two huge matches will add to a now stacked card. Fastlane was looking to be a “throw away” event, but adding a Shield reunion along with another Becky/Charlotte match could tip this event over to must see. This event will also see Daniel Bryan defending the WWE Championship against the newly returning Kevin Owens, along with Asuka defending her WWE Smackdown Live Women’s Championship against Mandy Rose.
