Lynch .vs. Rousey Reportedly Set For Mania 35

This week's issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter came out today and its lead story is about the changes that have been made to the Survivor Series card within the past few days.

The most eye-catching part of the article notes that the Becky Lynch versus Ronda Rousey match - which was scheduled to take place this Sunday, but was pulled from the Survivor Series lineup due to Becky Lynch's broken nose and concussion - is now set to take place at WrestleMania 35.

Dave Meltzer - editor of the Observer -  mentions that it could possibly be the main event. In the very least, it'll be one of the main attractions of next year's show.

The selection for a Becky Lynch .vs. Ronda Rousey match to main event Mania is, as of the time of writing, a joint-favourite next to The Rock versus Brock Lesnar (I wrote the other day that I strongly disbelieve this match is happening) in a Sky Bet special where customers can place wagers on who will compete in the final match of the April show.

After Tuesday and especially seeing the fallout on social media yesterday, I had a feeling that Becky Lynch could end up in the match. However, I thought at the time that it was worth a gamble on a triple threat with Charlotte Flair, Ronda Rousey and Lynch. I didn't think it would result in Charlotte being removed from the WrestleMania equation entirely, but today's story puts paid to that idea. 

The singles match - with Becky up against Ronda - is 4/1. For what it's worth - and this is obviously going against today's report  -  the scenario where all three ladies are in the WrestleMania 35 main event is 12/1,

For the aforementioned market, the match must be the final one of the night. The alternative would be to look at the women's Royal Rumbler winner market.

To get to Lynch versus Rousey in a singles match, one of the ladies might have to end up winning the women's Royal Rumble. As of the time of writing, Rousey is 18/1 (Sky Bet) and Lynch, who I'd say is the most likely of the two, is 9/2 (Betway).
