WWE officially announced today that WrestleMania 35 will be headlined by the Triple Threat with Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey.
The main event decision came down to the wire between the Triple Threat and the Seth Rollins vs. WWE Universal Champion Brock Lesnar match, according to PWInsider. The decision to go with the women’s match is being seen internally as a major victory for the women’s division and for everyone involved in the storyline that led to the match.
We’ve noted how Flair and Lynch took to Twitter to react to the big news. Rousey also tweeted on the main event. She wrote, “I came. I saw. I changed the game. Three women are going to headline #Wrestlemania this year. I won’t hold my breath expecting any thank yous, but you’re all welcome anyway. #MRSwrestlemania”

I ran my mouth, put in the miles, took the bumps and entertained the people till they couldn’t deny me any longer. It’s an emotional day just knowing I get to smash Ronnie and Char in front of the whole world on the biggest stage possible. To the people: THANK YOU. #IAMTHEMAN pic.twitter.com/XKRhMNdz5A
