• Rumor Killer Behind WrestleMania 35 Main Event Finish Being Botched
As seen in the main event of WrestleMania 35 last night, Becky Lynch pinned Ronda Rousey in the triple threat main event to become the new RAW & SmackDown Women’s Champion.
There’s a rumor going on that the finish of the match was botched and that Ronda wasn’t supposed to get pinned and that Ronda was angry at the referee for botching. Some reports also state that Becky was supposed to make Charlotte tap out to win the match.
According to the Wrestling Observer, that’s not at all true. The plan was always for Becky to pin Ronda to win the match.
There were talks of booking Becky to make Ronda tap out, but people backstage in WWE felt that would be “too fake” and that a pinfall finish would be the best option in this case.
As seen during the finish, Ronda’s shoulder was up during the pin. No word yet on if this was intentional or not. There’s speculation going on that this could be used in a future storyline.
