The WWE has bumped up an anticipated match between Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to this weekend due to a legitimate injury to Becky Lynch.
Lynch suffered a broken nose and concussion after being punched in the face by Nia during RAW on Monday night.

Lynch was set to face Rousey at Survivor Series on Sunday. Since she will be medically unable to wrestle, she appeared on “Smackdown” Tuesday and asked Flair to replace her in the match.

There was heavy speculation that the WWE was trying to build towards a Flair vs. Rousey match at WrestleMania next year. Perhaps whatever happens on Sunday will be with a future WrestleMania match in mind.
