Ronda vs. Becky headlining Wrestlemania?

This sounds great on paper, but there's still one giant question that needs to be answered.  How does Stephanie get involved? Much like Macho Man in his WCW debut, she’s either there to shake the winners hand, or slap their face! Wait, sorry, I meant “and”.  And slap their face.
