Backstage news regarding Wrestlemania main event finish
Submitted by Aaron Rift on 04/08/2019 at 10:33 AM

Dave Meltzer of discussed the finish of Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania 35 and how people were confused by it:

“That was the finish because people were out there going, ‘The referee screwed up,'”

“None of that’s true, but she wasn’t supposed to get the shoulders up. That was just — it just happened. It wasn’t that she was… I don’t believe for a second that she was trying to play a game like some of the old time guys used to do where they didn’t want to do a job and they’re kinda pressured into it so they’ll kinda raise their shoulder up to kind of tell everyone, ‘Oh I’m doing a job I don’t wanna do.’ I don’t believe for a second that she’s doing that.”

“Whatever it was her shoulder ended up coming up and they called attention to it which I thought was really weird. Backstage I know that because people did not know the commentary. I know people who were not even aware of this. Because I was going like, you know: ‘They called attention to the fact that her shoulder wasn’t up,’ and it’s like, ‘Oh, well.'”

“I don’t know if it’s Vince’s call. I don’t know if Corey Graves did it on his own because that’s what the replay showed, but the fact that they did the replay to show it makes me think that they did it in production, it’s production’s call, but you know that was the only screw up. She was supposed to be really pinned.”

Meltzer mentioned that WWE had considered a submission finish:

“This is what I know, at one point the finish was going to be a submission finish and there were a lot of people who were for it and a lot of people who were against it. In the end, the idea was a pinfall and not a submission.”

Meltzer also noted that Rousey apparently suffered a broken hand:

“I have some news. Ronda has a broken hand. A severely broken hand. She was just diagnosed with it.”
