CLEVELAND — Becky Lynch is going to WrestleMania. Again. For real this time. With a victory over Charlotte Flair, the pavement lining The Man’s stop-and-start road to The Showcase of the Immortals has finally hardened, and her path to a historic title clash with Charlotte and Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is clear. Whether she can walk that path is another story.

Yes, Lynch’s leg was string cheese before she walked into the match, thanks to nearly two straight months of attacks from Flair. Her arm wasn’t great either, having been mangled by Ronda just this past Monday on Raw. But with an opportunity to rejoin the Raw Women’s Title Match at WrestleMania at stake, The Man wasn’t about to succumb to her injuries. Unfortunately, she couldn’t muster much of a fight against Charlotte for roughly 80 percent of the match, as The Queen systematically savaged The Man en route to a Figure-Eight Leglock … whereupon Rousey sprinted down the ramp and plunged her fist into Lynch’s sternum, handing her rival a disqualification win.
