It’s amazing to think that WrestleMania 35 is just a few short months away. As the Road To WrestleMania continues, there has already been a main event rumored for the show – and a historic one at that. It has been reported that the planned main event for the show is a bout between current Raw and SmackDown Live Women’s Champions Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey.
Rousey is arguably the most famous female athlete in the world, and Lynch has become a red-hot star for WWE in recent months. The fact that their initially planned bout at Survivor Series was scrapped only adds more fuel to the fire. However, there has been some chatter of adding Charlotte Flair to the match and making it a Triple Threat contest.
With that being said, fans are chomping at the bit for a bout between Rousey and Lynch at WrestleMania. Recently, WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross spoke to Sports Illustrated and offered his thoughts on the rumored main event. Ross said he’d be very comfortable booking Lynch vs. Rousey as the WrestleMania main event, and wouldn’t be offended if Flair was added to the contest:
“I would be very comfortable in booking Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey in the main event at WrestleMania,” said Ross. “I wouldn’t be offended if they added Charlotte to that match, but right now, Becky and Ronda would be my match on top. That’s the hottest thing they have going right now.
“Right now, none of the men are red hot. You can’t say that about the women. They have captivated the attention of the fans. There is no male red hot enough to make me want to supersede putting them above Rousey or Lynch in the main event at WrestleMania.
“WWE can also market to the outside world that this is the first time in history that women are going to close the show. That is an amazing opportunity, and these women would be pioneers for the company.”
