    I say it should stay Becky/Ronda because how do you get Charlotte added into the main event to make it a Triple Threat Match? I mean Becky she won the Royal Rumble and she made her decision by jumping brands over to RAW to challenge Ronda. Since Charlotte is also a part of this feud with both ladies how do you get her involved especially if Charlotte is a Smackdown superstar?

    Becky didn't belong in the match, so she rightfully deserved the win? She challenges Becky, if she wins, she gets in the match. Hijinks lead to her winning in order to protect Becky. Boom, there you go. That's just the easiest way to do it. There are plenty of ways to weave her into it, she has been feuding with these women for months now.

    So Becky unfairly wins the rumble then Charlotte unfairly wins to get into the match? That's a bit overkill tbh, and it's way too much hassle to get to a match that a lot of people don't want. Becky vs Ronda would be a bigger match than Charlotte vs Becky vs Ronda so what's the point?

    Would disagree. In what way is it a bigger match to leave out one of the biggest names in womens wrestling (who mania casuals are more familiar with than pre-show Becky) and who is linked to almost everything else involved in this story? This thread is a perfect example of how Charlotte hovering around this mania main event creates more discussion. We'd of stopped talking about this match by SD last Tuesday without Charlotte.

    The Charlotte thread of this story isn't complete. She has unfinished business with Ronda and with Becky, and unless both of those get resolved before Wrestlemania then the Triple Threat is the best, and most logical way to do it.

    As for how can she get in the match, WWE can do what they want. Look at how the Wrestlemania 20, 22 and 24 matches got put together. Shawn Michaels signs a contract before Benoit does; Rey Mysterio is wronged and is inserted into the match as a charity case; John Cena was wronged and given an extra chance to get into the match. All of them were a bit contrived but by the time the show came along nobody gave a shit how the match came to be.

    It's absolutely no hassle at all, it's a normal ass storyline.

    Re: Which match to book for Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania?

    While I'm of the opinion that Charlotte absolutely deserves a big spotlight at Wrestlemania for her part in the womens revolution/evolution, putting her in this match to make it a three way would leave another woman who deserves the same recognition out of the picture: Asuka. She deserves a big spot at Mania just as much as Charlotte, Becky and Ronda but I believe that if she doesn't face Charlotte then she will be stuck with a sub-level match that will likely end up on the pre-show.

    Stick with Becky vs Ronda as the ppv's main event and then have Charlotte take on Asuka. That way you give all 4 women a great spot and you have 2 potentially excellent women's matches on the main card.

    Re: Which match to book for Raw Women's Championship at WrestleMania?

    For storyline purposes, Charlotte absolutely deserves to be in the match. As long as the show ends with a massive Becky celebration, it's all good.

    I am left wondering about what Asuka is to do for Wrestlemania. Sasha Banks jumping brands and challenging Asuka would be another big Mania match, but she should be involved in a Women's Tag Titles match (against Mild Samoans?) instead.

    Of course. Arguing Charlotte shouldn't be included in the match seems like either hating on her (I guess justifiable since it's opinion based) or worrying that, if she's in it, she'll be the one winning. It's so obviously set up for Becky to win that any other outcome would be pure idiocy. I won't bother making any other arguments as to why I voted to add Charlotte since Shock summarized my feelings well enough in his recent post.

    As far as Asuka goes, I'd thought of Ember Moon but unfortunately she went down with an injury so that's out of the cards. I think Sasha moving is a good choice but if they really wanted to bring their A game they could go for a match with Trish. It certainly wouldn't be the best from an in-ring standpoint but Asuka would definitely be able to get something good out of her and a win over a Hall of Famer would certainly look great.

    Besides just being afraid that Charlotte will be the one to get the big Wrestlemania win/moment instead, which tbh is a fair concern since it wouldn't be the only WM that Charlotte won that everyone wanted someone else to win, I can also see it as frustration that Becky seemingly can't have a big moment unless Charlotte is attached. Last year when it was time for Carmella to lose the title and everyone wanted Becky to win, Charlotte had to be added to that Summerslam match. When Becky was ready to get a major match against Rousey, Becky was pulled and it happened to be Charlotte thrown in instead (Obviously not Charlotte's fault, but an example of Charlotte benefiting from something that was set to be a Becky moment). Then the first ever women's TLC match and Becky has to drop the belt to Asuka and Charlotte has to be involved. Now finally, when everyone is seemingly ready for a WM to end with the women and Becky to stand tall over the unbeatable Rousey, Charlotte is once again there. Again, I do stand by the fact that it makes even more sense for Charlotte to be in the match, but I can see why some are frustrated that Becky can't have a big moment without Charlotte being there.

    As far as Asuka goes, I'd thought of Ember Moon but unfortunately she went down with an injury so that's out of the cards. I think Sasha moving is a good choice but if they really wanted to bring their A game they could go for a match with Trish. It certainly wouldn't be the best from an in-ring standpoint but Asuka would definitely be able to get something good out of her and a win over a Hall of Famer would certainly look great.
    Just because Trish was never particularly good and it wouldn't be anything more than just a fluff match unless they were to do something idiotic and have Stratus win, I wouldn't be in favor of Stratus winning.

    I can't imagine it's possible it'd even be considered by the WWE, but if Sasha Banks isn't an option, my ideal Asuka WM opponent would be Shayna Baszler in a champion vs champion match for both belts. Baszler comes up at either Elimination Chamber or the SD after the PPV to challenge Asuka after it's made out that Asuka doesn't have any legit threats. Baszler gets a chance to continue her dominance that she started on NXT onto the main roster, while Asuka can try to regain the title she was never defeated for.

    I thought of Trish because it would guarantee Asuka a somewhat marquee match on the main card. Baszler works for that too but, as you say, I doubt it would be considered. I'd be fine with Asuka winning both and then forfeiting the NXT belt to set up a new tournament down there but only if it means Baszler is coming up. At the same time, the way they've established her there's still some rub to be gained from beating her in a singles match for that belt and I'd imagine they'd want someone from NXT to do that as opposed to Asuka.

    I suppose you could go the alternative route and have Baszler beat Asuka but then you have this newly established dominant female champ over on SD losing to someone from NXT at Wrestlmania. While I think that would be pretty cool, and make NXT look amazing, I doubt it's an outcome that Vince would realistically entertain.

    Moon's injured so that's not happening and, as much as I enjoy Cross' commitment to her character, that sounds like a pre-show match to me. I don't think Asuka should be on the pre-show so I'm going to say no to that.

    When thinking up Asuka vs Baszler, the only outcome I saw as being wise was Baszler winning, officially joining the main roster, and vacating the NXT Women's Title similarly to how Asuka did it a couple of years earlier. I don't see it as being too unrealistic, especially is Rousey is going to step away from the WWE for a bit after Wrestlemania. Just as Rousey stepped in last year and was immediately dominant, Baszler would do the same, but on Smackdown. It'd be one thing if Baszler was going up against someone like Charlotte, but how much does Vince actually care about Asuka? At this point, this push seems to be more of a reflection of Charlotte and Becky going after Rousey and most of the other women being tied up in the creation of the Women Tag Titles, so it's not as if there's much competition that got in Asuka's way of getting the Smackdown's Women's Title.

    In addition, it's also an example of the main roster taking one of NXT's top stars, essentially stripping them of their title, and leaving the people who couldn't beat her to fight over the title. Seems like the sort of thing McMahon would be okay with doing.

    With the amount of 4 horsewoman signalling going on with Ronda opponents at the moment, I would confidently predict that Shayna’s first appearance on the main roster isn’t going to be with Asuka. She’s got a Raw after mania call up vibe to her.

    its worth stressing there’s still 8 weeks of TV and 2 PPVs to build up an opponent for Asuka.

    That does seem like a pretty good way of doing it actually. I'm sold, which is pretty good work on your part considering I don't even like Baszler.

    I recently read somewhere that WWE had kind of abandoned the horsewomen vs. horsewomen feud idea for the time being, probably because Shafir and Duke suck. If Ronda were to lose the title to Becky at 'Mania and then come out the following night to do the face handshake thing, it would be a great time to bring out Baszler to beat her down. This is contingent on Ronda sticking around of course, but it would even work if she was taking some extended time off as it would put Baszler over immediately as a serious threat. Doubtful this will happen but it would be pretty cool.

    Okay, but why? The 'Mania card is going to be stacked as always and this is the same company that put Dean Ambrose and the IC Title on the pre-show and does the same with the tag titles all the time. I'm not saying I want it to happen but, on paper, it's certainly a possibility.

    I would disagree also, but more because the two battle royals and the cruiserweight title would be locks in my head to be on that pre show so it's easier for them to get on the main show by default. I don't think Asuka Vs Cross is a match that sounds big enough for mania given the way WWE have used Cross as just another crazy chick and had her lose already.
