During Monday Night Raw, Becky Lynch led the entire SmackDown Live women’s locker room to invade the show and attack the Raw women’s locker room in a buildup to Survivor Series. After the attack, it seemed that Lynch suffered a broken nose and a possible concussion. Multiple reports are surfacing that her match with Ronda Rousey is now in jeopardy due to the injuries. With that in mind, if Lynch is not healthy, who could step in her place?

For the past several months, Shayna Baszler had made a mark in NXT. This included an impressive winning streak during her first reign as NXT Champion. Even though she lost the title to Kairi Sane just a few months ago, it did not take her long to win it back at Evolution.

Even though Baszler is facing Sane the night before, this makes perfect sense with the history that she has with Rousey with their backgrounds in MMA. This is also a smart method to introduce Baszler to the mainstream WWE community. Several NXT talents have competed at Takeover and a Pay Per View the next night. This includes wrestlers such as Kevin Owens, Adam Cole, Andrade “Cien” Almas, and Sasha Banks.

Since losing the NXT Women’s Championship at NXT Takeover Brooklyn, some have been looking for Baszler to get called up to the WWE Main Roster. If the WWE goes forward with this match, it would give fans what they want, and it may plant a seed for a future feud.

This year started off well for Charlotte, entering the year as the SmackDown Women’s Champion and being the first to defeat Asuska since being called up to the main roster at WrestleMania. From there, it went downhill, as she lost the title to Carmella.

On the WWE Main Roster, there are no other women not in a match already at the caliber of Becky Lynch. This scenario is dependent on whether Charlotte is added to the SmackDown Women’s Survivor Series match.

Most wrestling fans would agree that a match between Rousey and Charlotte needs to be built up in a storyline, and not just thrown in randomly. In theory, this is best bet on the main roster that is established.
