Sasha Banks Not Medically Cleared, Becky Lynch To Face Charlotte Flair On RAW
Sasha Banks was set to face Becky Lynch to decide which brand would get the No. 1 draft pick for night two of the WWE Draft. However, that won’t be happening as was rumored.
As a result of her injuries from Hell in a Cell, WWE has not cleared Sasha Banks. In her place will be Charlotte Flair. The same stipulation still applies in the match, which will kick off WWE RAW tonight.
Here’s the official announcement from WWE:
This week’s Raw was set to begin with Becky Lynch vs. Sasha Banks in a match to determine which brand would receive the first pick on Night Two of the 2019 WWE Draft. However, due to injuries sustained in last week’s WWE Hell in a Cell Match against the Raw Women’s Champion, The Boss has not been medically cleared to compete and will be replaced by Charlotte Flair.
Despite the last-minute substitution, however, the same stipulation applies. The Queen, who was SmackDown Women’s Champion until last Friday and has not yet been claimed by a brand in the Draft, will represent Team Blue, while the No. 1 overall pick Lynch will fly Raw’s flag during the contest. The winner will earn the top pick for their respective show. Given that Charlotte is up for selection in tonight’s draft pool, this bout could be the last time we see these two battle for a long time … or, it could end up being the first of many as Raw turns a page on a new era.
