Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania Could Still Happen With This Twist in the Story.

 

In our final part of our 3 part Booker Man series, Michael fantasy books what would happen at Wrestlemania if Becky Lynch were to retain the Smackdown women's championship at TLC in the first women's tables ladders and chairs match against Charlotte Flair and Asuka.

On the road to Wrestlemania, we could see The Man get her revenge on the Facebreaker, Nia Jax and eventually get her match she was supposed to have at Survivor Series vs Ronda Rousey.

Could we see a Wrestlemania rematch between Charlotte Flair and Asuka?
