In case you didn't know...

Becky Lynch lost the SmackDown Women's Championship to Asuka back at TLC: Tables, Ladders, and Chairs in the first ever Women's TLC match that also included Charlotte Flair.

Lynch has since slated her claim to that title, but it was expected that she would be part of The Royal Rumble match rather than fighting for the SmackDown Women's Championship.

Lynch is expected to wrestle Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania in one form or another, but the fact that there are still two more pay-per-views before WWE arrives in New Jersey in April means that plans are always subject to change.

The heart of the matter

Becky Lynch will be looking to reclaim her Women's Championship from Asuka at The Royal Rumble, but Lynch is now expected to lose that match so that she can become a surprise entrant in The Royal Rumble match and go on to win the chance to face Ronda Rousey at the biggest event of the year.

According to the same report by The Wrestling Observer, Lynch and Rousey is then expected to be made official, before Charlotte is then added to the match down the line if she is able to win her place at Fastlane or Elimination Chamber.

What's next?

Lynch has a Women's Championship match at The Royal Rumble whilst Charlotte is expected to be added to the Women's Royal Rumble match for the first time.

Both women will be looking to exact some revenge on Rousey for her part in TLC, which will definitely be interesting since she fights Sasha Banks in Phoenix.
