In the latest episode of his Heated Conversations podcast (via Wrestling Inc, Booker T said that he thinks Charlotte Flair needs to stay out of the Wrestlemania 35 main event, which was originally supposed to be between Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey. However, Flair was announced as Lynch’s replacement last night on RAW.
He said: “I say we shelve Charlotte Flair for this one. I really think, Charlotte Flair, come on, her legacy is going to be cemented throughout the years. That’s just a given! But right now, I honestly, truly think that it’s Becky Lynch’s time and Becky Lynch needs this more than Charlotte Flair, I think. Becky Lynch needs this spotlight to actually go out and continue to do business. This is Becky Lynch’s moment to go out and shine on the biggest stage of them all, and I’m going to tell you right now, there’s no other way that you can do that than being in a singles match, one-on-one, mano a mano. Let’s go out and see how good Becky Lynch really is. Let’s go out and see how good Ronda Rousey can be, and that’s the way I think it should be. I think, this time right here, this WrestleMania, this moment – 2019, it should be Becky Lynch’s time. The man in the WWE! That’s just the way I see it. Charlotte Flair, come on, she’s going to have her time, Charlotte Flair is going to make history making moments. Charlotte Flair has already made history in so many different ways. But right now, like John Cena used to say, ‘Your time is up, my time is now.’ The time, right now, is Becky Lynch’s.“
