It was announced on Saturday that Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks would renew their rivalry to face off on this week's episode of Monday Night Raw, with the winner determining which brand would go first when the 2019 Draft concludes on tonight's show.
Now, it looks like the bout is off.
As pointed out by Heel by Nature, local TV guides are now advertising Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair rather than 'The Boss':-
Wrestling Inc. has also noted that the DirecTV also list Becky vs. Charlotte on the billing.
This likely has everything to do with the suspected back and hip injuries Banks suffered while competing against Lynch inside Hell In A Cell last week. Dave Meltzer wrote in the latest issue of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter that while WWE didn't yet have a full grasp on the problems and their severity, they were "feared to be serious."
Here's hoping that this isn't the case and 'The Boss' is able to mount a full comeback before long. Though unsuccessful in the Lynch feud, that she was the first woman drafted to SmackDown last week bodes well for her push going forward.
