Charlotte Flair Replaces Sasha Banks In WWE Raw Match With Becky Lynch

Due to injury...

It was announced previously that Becky Lynch would go one on one with Sasha Banks on Monday's Draft edition of Raw from Denver, CO. The winner of the match would determine which brand got to make the first pick on Raw, with Lynch representing Raw and Banks SmackDown.

Plans have changed as of Monday afternoon, as WWE announced that Charlotte Flair would replace Banks in the match against Lynch, competing for SmackDown's shot at earning the next pick.

Banks suffered a reported tailbone injury in her Hell in a Cell match with Lynch last Sunday. The injury led to her being held off of Raw entirely. She was also not present on Friday's episode of SmackDown, where she was drafted seventh overall by the blue brand.

Flair is among the wrestlers eligible to be drafted by either brand on Monday's Raw, along with Seth Rollins, Brock Lesnar, Daniel Bryan, Shinsuke Nakamura, The New Day, Aleister Black, Bayley, The Miz, King Corbin, Dolph Ziggler and Bobby Roode, and others.
