Let's be honest here.

No matter how Sunday's main event match between Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch turns out, it will still be a historic moment in WWE history and the culmination of all the hard work put in over the years by the entire women's division. Beyond all that, it will be a crowning moment for one of the three competitors.

But who will it be though? Furthermore, who will be the one taking the deciding pinfall or submission and losing the match of a lifetime? While early indicators suggest that it will be Lynch who ultimately comes out on top, it is also being rumoured that WWE is having trouble agreeing to a finish due to Rousey being unwilling to lose to Lynch.

According to Slice Wrestling " There Still Been No Decision On Who Will Win The Women's Championship Triple Threat As WWE Has Run Into Difficulties With Booking The Finish. Ronda Rousey Has Insisted She Does Not Want To Be Pinned/Submit By Lynch Due To Real Life Heat Between The Two Female SuperStars."

As always, let us know your thoughts in the comments below and happy WrestleMania weekend everyone!


#5. Blurring between fiction and reality

Is this WWE's way of blurring the lines between reality and fiction?

Another thing that the WWE Universe needs to be honest about is the fact that the company has done everything possible to blur the lines between fiction and reality when it comes to this storyline. Not only is that evident by Rousey's epic promo on social media about WWE, but also by just how personal the superstars have been getting about each other's life.

If nothing else, it has really added something special to this feud between Lynch, Rousey and Flair and the company should be applauded for it. With that being said, however, maybe this rumour is just another attempt by WWE to blur the lines a bit and put an extra bit of doubt into fans minds about how Sunday's main event will unfold.

#4. To make sure she comes out the winner

Think about it!

Ronda Rousey could be taking an extended hiatus from WWE after WrestleMania 35, but that doesn't necessarily mean she has to come out of the main event match as the loser! In fact, previous rumors have speculated that the original plan was for Rousey to retain at WrestleMania, which would kickstart a riot, and have her lose it the next night on Raw.

Interestingly enough, the original plan was supposedly for Charlotte to win the belts the next night on Raw and not Lynch. That apparently changed as Lynch's babyface run got hotter and hotter, thus forcing WWE to reconsider. With that in mind, why not do the original plan that WWE had and then make it where Lynch wins the belts the next night on Raw.

In the end, it allows for Rousey to come out as the winner of the match, gives WWE the positive publicity, helps with the contract negotiations with Rousey down the line and will ultimately lead to Lynch becoming the undisputed champion. It might not be the most popular plan and would come as a huge disappointment for fans at Mania, but it would be best for business in the long run!

#3. Will Hurt her credibility

Will Ronda Rousey finally lose?

Of course, Rousey has already taken her first loss in WWE, which was in a tag team match with Natalya, but she has never been pinned or submitted inside the squared circle. Beyond that, she has also tapped her opponents out for the most part, which makes the idea of her tapping out to Becky Lynch's disarmer all the more difficult to swallow.

Sure, Rousey has been winning a lot more of her title matches by pinfall lately, especially as she has made her way through the raw women's roster, but does that really take away from how embarrassing it would be to tap out? Also, does it look worse if Lynch is the one to tap instead of Charlotte Flair?

Although it's not known why Rousey supposedly prefers Charlotte Flair over Lynch, one could imagine that it has something to do with credibility. Think about it! Lynch might be the biggest thing in WWE right now, but she still hasn't proven herself to be a long term commodity for the company, which could be why Rousey would rather lose to Flair instead.

#2. Bargaining chip

Ronda Rousey may end up taking a hiatus from WWE after WrestleMania 35, but that doesn't mean she will be gone forever. In fact, depending on how WWE chooses to solve this little problem of Rousey not wanting to lose to Lynch, The Baddest woman on the planet could be interested in working with the company in the future.

Unfortunately for WWE however, they now must decide whether they want to put all their chips behind Becky Lynch as The Man, or give Rousey what she wants and get her back in the long term. Either way, the company is going to lose something special, which makes this a particularly hard decision to make.

In the end, maybe there's some kind of third decision WWE can make that sends everyone home happy. For example, maybe the company can have Lynch beat Charlotte and keep Rousey out of the decision entirely. At least that way, Rousey doesn't lose, is more likely to sign again with WWE and Lynch can have her moment.

#1. Real life heat

Do Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey hate each other?

While that might be a little exaggerated, especially since they have been working with each other over the last couple of months, there are at least some rumours circulating that Lynch has taken it too far during her promos and drawn Rousey's ire as a result. Of course, this could just be a rumour in order to solicit more buzz around the main event, but what if it's not?

In fact, what if WWE is literally in a situation where Ronda Rousey is refusing to do business and lose to Lynch? What can WWE even do in this situation? Do they give the title to Charlotte and then have Lynch win it the next night on Raw? Does that diminish Lynch's run as a white-hot babyface?

If nothing else, all of these questions are very hard to answer and puts WWE in a very difficult situation if true. It really all depends on how things shake out at WrestleMania 35, but can WWE really please everyone in this situation? Beyond that, can they do it in a way that gives the fans what they deserve?
