It’s a big one. History was made last year at WrestleMania 35. For the first time ever, a women’s match headlined the show, which seemed like an impossible dream just a year earlier. It was a true game changer and the peak of women’s wrestling. Becky Lynch won the triple threat main event and has held the title ever since. That makes for a big match coming up at WrestleMania 36 and now we know where the title match is going.

Every now and then, WWE will do their best to set up a major match in advance without giving away what they are going to do. The problem comes when you know what is coming and it becomes very obvious, which leaves the next few weeks feeling rather unimportant. WWE made that happen again this time around and now we have the pretty obvious match set.

On Sunday at Elimination Chamber, Shayna Baszler won the Elimination Chamber match to become #1 contender to Lynch’s Raw Women’s Title, with her title shot coming at WrestleMania 36. Baszler eliminated all five opponents in the match with the Kirifuda Clutch, including Asuka for the final win. The WrestleMania match will be Baszler’s singles pay per view debut.

This one has been set up for awhile. Check out some of the build:

Opinion: I don’t think anyone was really surprised by this and that’s not the best thing in the world. At the end of the day, WWE had made it pretty clear that Baszler was the next challenge to Lynch and outside of a last minute swerve, that’s what we were going to get. Baszler vs. Lynch is a match that should be a hard hitting brawl, but it wasn’t the most thrilling way to get there.
