Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey has been the plan for WrestleMania, as Wrestling Observer reported ahead of the Royal Rumble. Fightful has learned more about the situation after reporting her return the Monday prior.
Word has been going around since Monday's Raw before THE Rumble that this was the penciled in program for the two at WrestleMania, with Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Belair the planned feud at the time on the Raw side of things. As often is the case with pro wrestling and creative plans, they can change on a whim.
