Today In History: The Riott Squad Compete In Beat The Clock Challenge (March 25, 2019)

On this day last year, the WrestleMania opponents, Becky Lynch, Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey faced The Riott Squad in Beat the Clock Challenge. With Rousey savaging challengers and security guards on Raw and Becky and Charlotte trading barbs on SmackDown LIVE, it’s been difficult for any competitor to establish the upper hand, so Raw’s Beat the Clock Challenge (short version: fastest victory wins) provided an opportunity for one of these women to separate from the pack.

Despite not knowing what a Beat the Clock Challenge was, The Baddest Woman on the Planet quickly got the gist of it and submitted Sarah Logan in 1:25. Charlotte was knocked out of the running when she couldn’t defeat Ruby Riott any quicker than that, and despite taking a frustrated big boot from The Queen, Lynch topped Rousey’s time by just seven seconds with a jackknife pin of Liv Morgan. If there was a lesson to be learned, it’s that Becky could end a match just as quickly as Ronda — if not quicker.
