3 Reasons why Becky Lynch should not be facing Asuka at the Royal Rumble
The Empress of Tomorrow vs The Man for the SmackDown Women's Championship is a match that every single member of the WWE Universe would love to witness, including myself. One could even go as far as saying that this match could main event any pay-per-view card. However, it shouldn't even be taking place at the Royal Rumble pay-per-view.
Here are 3 reasons why:
#3 Becky should be in the Royal Rumble match
It is important to note that it is not a foregone conclusion that Lynch will not participate in the Royal Rumble match. She could lose her match against Asuka and still go on to compete in the Rumble match, much like what Roman Reigns did in 2017 when he lost his Universal title match against Kevin Owens but still went on to be in the final two of the Royal Rumble before being eliminated by the eventual winner, Randy Orton.
With The Man more over than ever, it would be appalling if WWE did not put her in the Rumble match and tease the possibility of her winning and choosing to face Ronda Rousey, the woman she's traded words with for months and who even cost Becky her title at WWE: Tables, Ladders and Chairs in December.
