“SmackDown” champion Becky Lynch had to drop out of her match with Rousey when her face met Nia Jax’s fist earlier this week.

<p>The Ronda Rousey vs. Becky Lynch match at Survivor Series is out. And Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair is in.</p><p>The substitute opponent for Rousey was needed after the women of “SmackDown” “invaded” “Raw” on Monday and surprise, surprise, a brawl broke out. Somewhere in the middle of the melee, Nia Jax’s fist connected with Lynch’s face, and it was a bloody mess.</p><p>[/]{"component":"video", "type":"youtube", "url":"", "videoSize":"Large" }[/]</p><p>Assuming they’re following the script, or maybe they aren’t, only they know for sure — Lynch’s injury has put her on the sidelines for Survivor Series on Sunday.</p><p>Subsequently, “The Man” picked who would replace her in the ring with Rousey. Her choice, Charlotte Flair, daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair.</p><p>So now it’s The Baddest Woman on the Planet vs. The Queen.</p><p><a href="http://;book=5dimes" rel="nofollow" title="Top-Rated Sportsbook">Sportsbook 5Dimes posted refreshed odds </a>and Rousey (-600) is the overwhelming favorite over Flair (+400).</p><p>But from all the jawing on television and social media, you’d thing Rousey was still going to be in the ring with The Irish Lass Kicker.</p><p>Rousey’s lengthy Instagram post sticks to a script of her accusing Lynch of trying to find a reason to back out of Survivor Series.</p><p>“You were punching Nia in the back of the head and she turned around and laid you out with one half closed fist. You had the jump on all of us at #Raw and walked out with a broken face and a severe concussion acting like you’re the biggest badass on earth. And the next day YOU backed out of our match. That’s some #BackwardsBullsh*tBecky We both know you came to Raw looking for a reason to back out. Keep clutching your Dr’s note, in the meantime I’ll be proving to the world @charlottewwe bleeds red just like everyone else.”</p><p>Odds say viewers might find out what color Flair bleeds. The bottom line is that whether they meet Sunday or the rumored one-on-one at Wrestlemania, Rousey always was the pick to win, but it appears oddsmakers are giving Flair any chance at all. Of course, Flair intends to win.</p><p>[/]{"component": "embedHTML", "code": "&lt;blockquote class=\"twitter-tweet\" data-lang=\"en\"&gt;&lt;p lang=\"en\" dir=\"ltr\"&gt;5 days isn’t much time to prepare....&lt;br /&gt;...for the figure 8. &lt;a href=\";amp;ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw\"&gt;#TrueBlue&lt;/a&gt; &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;— Charlotte Flair (@MsCharlotteWWE) &lt;a href=\"\"&gt;November 15, 2018&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/blockquote&gt;\n\n&lt;script async src=\"\" charset=\"utf-8\"&gt;&lt;/script&gt;"}[/]</p><p>Also on the Survivor Series card that night streaming on WWE Network:</p><ul> <li>Universal Champion Brock Lesnar vs. WWE Champion Daniel Bryan</li> <li>Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins vs. United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura</li> <li>Women’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match</li> <li>Men’s 5-on-5 Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match</li> <li>WWE Cruiserweight Champion Buddy Murphy vs. Mustafa Ali</li> <li>Raw Tag Team Champions AOP vs. SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Bar (w/ Big Show)</li> <li>10-on-10 Tag Team Traditional Survivor Series Elimination Match (Kickoff Match)</li></ul><p>For Lynch, a punch in the face and not appearing at Survivor Series could be the best thing that ever happened. By not losing to Rousey, and yes, she would have fallen – WWE isn’t ready for Rousey to lose. This scenario allows Lynch to continue to rise and fan the flames for the next opportunity to face Rousey.</p><p>Headliners at Wrestlemania 35, anyone? Maybe, maybe not. An April rematch of Rousey vs. Flair at Wrestlemania in New Orleans also could be the place for a great revenge/redemption storyline. Time will tell.</p>
