Charlotte Flair replaces Sasha Banks against Becky Lynch tonight

Originally published at

Tonight’s episode of Raw will feature the continuation of the WWE Draft, which began this past Friday night on SmackDown.

Tonight’s show from Denver will feature Becky Lynch (representing Raw) taking on replacement Charlotte Flair (who is representing SmackDown). The match was initially set to feature Lynch against Sasha Banks but WWE stated on Monday that Banks was not medically cleared for tonight’s match. We had reported last week that Banks was not cleared following her match at Hell in a Cell with Lynch and was kept off last Monday’s episode.

Banks did not wrestle on either of the WWE’s live events over the weekend in Odessa and Amarillo, Texas.

The winner of Lynch vs. Flair will determine which brand receives the first pick in tonight’s draft. Tonight’s talent pool features Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Charlotte Flair, Shinsuke Nakamura, Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler, Asuka & Kairi Sane, Titus O’Neil, New Day, Daniel Bryan, Bayley, Luke Harper, Erick Rowan, The Miz, Ali, King Corbin, Elias, Samoa Joe, Rusev, Cedric Alexander, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Carmella, Authors of Pain, Apollo Crews, Andrade, Liv Morgan, Jinder Mahal, Buddy Murphy, Mojo Rawley, No Way Jose, Dana Brooke, Shelton Benjamin, Curt Hawkins & Zack Ryder, The IIconics, Sarah Logan, Mandy Rose & Sonya Deville, and Drake Maverick.

Tonight’s show will also feature Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler defending the Raw tag titles against the Viking Raiders after last week’s non-title victory by the Viking Raiders.

Wasting another top match. Becky will get the win here as their 3 picks for Raw 2 for Smackdown only works if Raw picks first. Why not just keep the order from Smackdown.

Instead of the Fiend causing a DQ, Bayley will cause a DQ. Because she’s evil now, out to screw all of us bitches.

Haven’t we seen this a million times? And Charlotte isn’t even drafted yet is she?

Why did they announce Banks if they knew she was injured?
