Lynch will be facing WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at the PPV, while the women of the Blue Brand will face the women of the Red Brand in a 5-on-5 traditional Survivor Series elimination tag team match.
During tonight’s episode of WWE Raw, Becky Lynch did not wait until Sunday to take the fight to the women of Monday nights, as she surprise attacked Ronda Rousey and locked the “Rowdy” one in the Disarmher submission hold.

Current WWE 'SmackDown Live' Star Could Be Facing Ronda Rousey At 'WrestleMania 35'

Ronda Rousey’s journey in WWE has been well publicized not only by the pro wrestling media but by the mainstream media as well. The current Raw Women’s champion has fully established herself in the company and she is perhaps the most highly marketable female Superstars in WWE.
But the question of who she will face at WrestleMania 35 has been asked from the moment she first debuted with Vince McMahon’s company. Now there may be an answer. The Wrestling Observer Newsletter (via Comic Book) is reporting that Becky Lynch may be the one to face The Baddest Woman on the Planet.

Evidently Lynch has gained such an edge since her infamous heel turn that the company is looking at her in a whole new light. Becky is so hot right now that it may just be enough to book the Irish Lass Kicker against Rousey on The Grandest Stage of Them All.

RelatedRonda Rousey Buries Nikki Bella And Her Failed Relationship With John Cena On 'WWE Raw'
This news surely comes as a surprise to many WWE fans, who believed it would be Charlotte Flair that would get the nod against Ronda. It seemed like the perfect match due to the status of both stars. Ronda represented the world of MMA and Charlotte represented the world of WWE.

But is seems that as Becky’s star continues to burn bright, Charlotte’s has somewhat dimmed. Though the company likely didn’t expect it, Becky has been catapulted to the top and Flair has lost a step. This has apparently affected WWE’s booking plans as it pertains to WrestleMania 35.
It’s unknown if WWE will indeed move forward with Ronda Rousey versus Becky Lynch at WrestleMania and there is still plenty of time for the company to make a different move. Becky is scheduled to defend her SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte Flair in a Last Woman Standing Match at Crown Jewel on November 2.

Which Former Champion Did Nikki Bella Want To Return At WWE 'Evolution'?

The return of The Bella Twins has taken a new direction since their heel turn on WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.  With WWE Evolution just two weeks away, the rumors of a Rousey and Bella Twins feud have now been realized.

The twins took park in a Q&A session this weekend at the ACE Comic Con in Chicago.  Moderated by legendary WWE announcer Lillian Garcia, the twins spoke about a variety of topics including Nikki’s intentions of becoming WWE Raw Women’s Champion at Evolution.  Also, Nikki stated that she hoped that former WWE Divas Champion AJ Lee could appear at the first all-women’s PPV event for WWE.
Bella also commented on the legacy Lee left behind, citing her involvement in what the Women’s Division is today.  Bella made a great point talking about the storylines she had with Lee in addition to giving Lee the credit that she deserves.

In hindsight, their back and forth feud has been rather prolific.  Their feud (including sister Brie Bella and Smackdown General Manager Paige) is one of the turning points of the evolution.
From Lee’s iconic “Pipebombshell” promo that ignited the Women’s Division in 2013 to Bellas’ shock win over Lee that started her history-making Divas Championship reign are among some of the biggest moments for the Women’s Evolution.  Whether fans like it or not, the priority of The Bella Twins in storylines plays a big role en route to Evolution.

Bella has most certainly improved in recent years in addition to becoming a business player in WWE with two shows, a clothing line and a wine line.

Bella’s return to the ring for Smackdown in 2016 started one of her best runs.  Her feuds with Carmella and Natalya were among some of her best work with the company.  Her current program with Rousey could very well highlight her growing resume.

Sunday October 28th I will shock the world. The days leading up to Evolution I will prove to you all that I will be ready to beat an Olympic athlete. That I can be badder than the baddest one of the all. The 28th I’ll start my new reign. And it’ll be the longest of them all. N pic.twitter.com/XjVWXIL6xK

The match between Bella and Rousey for the WWE Raw Women’s Championship has also been confirmed as the Evolution main event at the Q&A session.  Bella is confident that she can shock the world once more, as she is no stranger to doing so.

WATCH: Ronda Rousey Has Harsh Words For The Bella Twins Following Attack On 'WWE Raw'

It appears as if Ronda Rousey is through making friends in WWE after The Bella Twins turned on the “Baddest Woman On the Planet” and attacked her after their victory over The Riott Squad on Raw this week.
The attack from The Twins was done by WWE to set up a singles match between Rousey and Nikki Bella at the WWE Evolution PPV taking place on October 28th in Long Island, at The Nassau Coliseum. The bout between the two Raw stars will headline the PPV with the Raw Women’s Title on the line.

In a new interview conducted for TMZ Sports, Rousey was asked about The Bella Twins attacking her on Raw this week, and Rousey fired back with some choice words for the Total Bellas stars.
“Nikki Bella, Brie Bella, they’re a bunch of untrustworthy b***hes,” declared Rousey. “But we got the first all-women’s PPV coming up for the WWE, me and Nikki are going to be headlining, and so you know what? If she wants to be my antagonist, that’s fine, all I really care about is the success of the PPV.”
Rousey added she is no longer interested in making friends in WWE, and she feels the only person she can trust in the company is Natalya, as she has learned the hard way that The Bella Twins were never her friends to begin with.
“I’m trying to make friends [in WWE], and show everybody I’m friendly and trying to help out and not to steal anybody’s thunder or anything like that,” said Rousey.

The Champ added that she is unsure how her match against Nikki Bella will play out at the PPV, but that it’s much more personal than her previous bouts in WWE. You can watch the full interview with Rousey in the above video player.

Backstage Update On Plans For Ronda Rousey Heading Into WWE 'Evolution' *Possible 'Raw' Spoilers*

With WWE Super Show-Down in the books, and Ronda Rousey picking up a big win at the event alongside The Bella Twins, Rousey next looks ahead to defending her Raw Women’s Title at WWE Evolution.
Several weeks ago, it was reported that plans in WWE called for Ronda Rousey to defend her title against Nikki Bella at Evolution, and while it was rumored that some type of heel turn might take place by Nikki at Super Show-Down, it never happened, and instead her and Rousey celebrated their tag team match win.

According to the WrestleVotes Twitter account, however, plans remain in place for Rousey to defend her title against Nikki Bella at Evolution, and the seeds for the match and feud should begin on tonight’s episode of WWE Raw.
“Not sure if it will be a “full on” heel turn or not, but I’m expecting some friction and interaction between Rousey and Nikki Bella tonight. Their Evolution match should be made official on RAW,” reads the WrestleVotes Tweet.

Rousey won the WWE Raw Women’s Title back at SummerSlam in August, making quick work of then-Champion Alexa Bliss when Rousey was able to submit Bliss in just four minutes.

RelatedBackstage News On Ronda Rousey's Match At WWE 'Survivor Series'
Since SummerSlam, Rousey has defended the Title one time, in a rematch against Bliss at WWE Hell in a Cell back on September 16th in San Antonio. That match saw Natalya appear in the corner of her friend Rousey, while Bliss had the duo of Alicia Fox and Mickie James in her corner. Bliss fared better in that match, lasting twelve minutes against Rousey, but in the end, Rousey was once again able to make Little Miss Bliss tapout via an armbar.
The upcoming WWE Evolution PPV, taking place on October 28th, will feature every WWE Women’s Title on the line, including the NXT and NXT UK Titles, currently held by Kairi Sane and Rhea Ripley, respectively.
