The Man vs. The Empress. Tonight on Smackdown Live, Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair and Carmella in a Triple Threat Match to earn the right to face Asuka for the Smackdown Live Women’s Championship at the 2019 Royal Rumble pay-per-view event.
You can see a clip of the match being made by Triple H from last week below:
If there was ever a chance for Becky to tap back into that magic, this is it. But she faces a deadly opponent, as Asuka stands fortified by a long, arduous road to the blue jewel, with the opportunity to begin a new legendary reign standing in front of her. The Man tends to come around at the most opportune moments, but is she ready for this enormous challenge?
No real surprises here. Becky Lynch was named the top wrestler in 2018 by CBS Sports, and for good reason. Her and Asuka should put on a clinic at the Royal Rumble, and I can’t wait to see it!
