Together, Ronda Rousey, Charlotte Flair, and Becky Lynch are the faces of WrestleMania 35. For the first time in WWE history, a women’s match will be the main event at the annual sports entertainment spectacle, with the trio facing off in the Raw Women’s Championship match. The action takes place on Sunday, April 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and will be streaming live on WWE Network around the world.
Three years ago, WWE rebranded its Divas Division as the Women’s Division and introduced the Women’s Championship title. Last October, WWE held its first-ever, all-women pay-per-view event, titled Evolution. Additionally, the organization released a video earlier today in celebration of Women’s History Month.
Ronda Rousey is the current Raw Women’s Champion, an Olympic medalist, the first female UFC Champion, and the first woman to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. She is also an actress and New York Times best-selling author.
Charlotte Flair is a seven-time Champion in WWE, a former Division 1 volleyball player, philanthropist, and author. She is the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.
Becky Lynch is the 2019 Women’s Royal Rumble winner, a two-time SmackDown Champion, and was named Wrestler of the Year by both Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports in 2018. She was also the first woman ever to top ESPN’s WWE Power Rankings.
