She is set to take on Rose once again at this weekend’s Fastlane show, so hopefully any injury she has will have cleared up by then. Who she is set to face (assuming she beats Rose) at WrestleMania is still unclear, but there has been talk of Lacey Evans getting a big push and possible ‘Mania title shot.
