What's the story?

As the feud between Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch heats up, the fine line between being heel or face continues to thin for both characters.

While DivaDirt (via has stated that Ronda Rousey is legitimately upset with Becky Lynch for what she has been saying on Twitter, PWInsider has reported that this a part of WWE's plan. The idea is to evolve Rousey's character into a heel before her match against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at Wrestlemania 35.

In case you didn't know...

Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch are currently involved not just in an on-screen feud but also one that is taking place on Twitter.

While Ronda Rousey was a fan-favorite up until last year, the WWE Universe has turned on her ever since her rivalry with the fan-favorite Becky Lynch began, prior to Survivor Series.

Even though WWE has portrayed Rousey as the brave Champion with fighting spirit, it is clear that the fan support lies with The Man.

Ronda Rousey lay down her RAW Women's Championship this past week on RAW, seemingly relinquished it because the McMahons did not agree to her demand of reinstating the suspended Becky Lynch.

The heart of the matter

While Charlotte Flair has already turned a full heel, both The Baddest Woman On The Planet and The Man ate currently tweeners - but not for long.


It looks like WWE is indeed planning to turn the former UFC Women's Champion a heel so that Lynch is the undisputed fan-favorite by the time Wrestlemania 35 takes place.

What's next?

Wrestlemania 35 will take place on April 7, 2019, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and will be main evented by the RAW Women's Championship match featuring Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair and possibly Becky Lynch.
