This could well be the most interesting inter brand contest to look forward to.
 
At this point I could be happy enough with it getting to close Survivor Series.
 
It should also lead to Rousey making a first appearance on Smackdown to further the storyline.

This will be a great match it'll be interesting to see who the crowd will be rooting for.

I strongly believe that this should main event Survivor Series.

I slightly believe that this will main event Survivor Series.

What are the possible matchups at this point for the main event at Survivor Series?

Braun Strowman vs AJ Styles? (seems the most likely Champion vs Champion)
Brock Lesnar vs AJ Styles 2? (If for some reason Lesnar wins)
The Miz vs AJ Styles? (#1 contender vs WWE Champion)
Dean Ambrose vs Braun Strowman? (possible #1 contender vs possible universal champion)
Bobby Lashley vs Brock Lesnar? (possible #1 contender vs possible universal champion)

Those are about the only matchups I can spitball that seem reasonable.

Lynch vs Rousey seems just as good as any of those others. It'd be a great test to see how well Rousey can draw as champion, and how well the women's division is really doing. A Big 4 event headlined by 2 of the best women on the roster would mean a lot for the future of the women's division whether they succeed or fail.

A mess of a promo by Rousey. You can tell when she's thinking what's she's scripted to say next because she either looks at the ceiling or the floor, instead of the crowd or the camera.

Calling Becky a man was a big mistake. She did kinda recover pretty good, but it was quite the howler.

Ronda even came across as heelish by playing down the life Becky has had to get to this point.

Rousey kicked ass. Becky calls herself "The Man" like she's Bill Goldberg, so Rousey playing into that makes perfect sense. Rousey's promos are different than normal but they're badass. They're showing why she was such a huge draw in UFC. I loved her natural born killer line, and to me, had it not been for Becky's response Rousey's promo was the promo of the week.

However, Becky responded with a promo that to me has to go down as one of the very best in years, and bar none the best in the women's division history. Yes, better than AJ Lee's "pipe bombette". Becky talked such a good game, and looked the part so well that she actually looks like she could beat Rousey, and I actually HOPE she beats Rousey now, too. 

It had shades of Miz's US title & WWE Magazine cover promo, where Miz went around saying, I wasn't supposed to be here, but here I am. Except with Becky saying it, she didn't look like she was being petulant and rubbing the fans nose in it like The Miz did (which was perfect for him), she looked like she was a monster people underestimated and now she's going to prove she's the best woman in WWE, and that's exactly what she should be doing. The line where she called out Rousey for calling herself the baddest bitch on the planet, and then said that she (Becky) was going to make her (Rousey) hers was great.

Really loving this feud, and I really do hope at this point that Becky gets the win. I think Ronda can absorb the loss, and as of now she's still undefeated, but if Becky wins she looks even better than ever, while Rousey doesn't really take much of a knock since she can bounce back by beating Nia Jax & Tamina Snuka and TLC. That's the next PPV, right?

At this point I'm thinking Rousey is the Mike Tyson we should have gotten at the start of the attitude era, and this is made all the better due to the fact that Becky Lynch is looking a whole damned lot like Stone Cold.

I've heard Meltzer speculate that Charlotte could help Becky secure the win over Rousey to help further the horsewomen vs horsewomen feud. This could be a great way to see Charlotte gain some babyface brownie points with the fans, but there's still one fly in the ointment. 

Ronda Rousey needs to turn heel.

Not because the fans demand it. Not because she's not a good babyface, or because she's not over as a babyface, because she is a good babyface and she is over as a babyface, and the fans DO accept her (just not as much as Lynch so putting them together just highlights that), but because Jessamin Duke, Marina Shafir, and Shayna Baszler are heels, while Becky, Charlotte, Sasha & Bayley are all babyfaces (I think, the last few weeks WWE have finally given up the fight on keeping Becky as a heel, right?). 

This is the most talked about feud going into Survivor Series, and rightly so. If Rousey has the deck stacked against her with Jax & Snuka as well as Charlotte all working together to take her down, well, one that's gonna put heat on Rousey by way of the Cena effect, and get Becky even more over. However if it leads to the MMA vs NXT horsewomen feud it'll be worth it, even moreso if it leads to Rousey turning heel.

ive just posted in the Zelina Vega thread about the number of women picking up concussions recently - surely something needs to be done to protect them more

Yeah with that match gone, I really don't give a shit. The other matches might be a good supporting card, but there's no main event anymore.

More importantly though is what does this do to the push Becky is getting??? How long will she be out? How do you pick up this momentum again???
