For the first time in WWE history, a women’s match will be the main event of WrestleMania as the Raw Women’s Championship Match featuring Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch will take place on Sunday, April 7, in front of a capacity crowd at MetLife Stadium and streaming live on WWE Network around the world.

Ronda Rousey is the current Raw Women’s Champion, 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 bestselling 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 Women’s 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.

At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, WWE re-branded the Divas Division the Women’s Division and unveiled a new Women’s Championship title. Since that time, the women’s evolution has placed a greater spotlight on WWE’s female Superstars, including more prominent storylines and deeper character development that showcases their athleticism, charisma and star power.

Last October, WWE held it’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, Evolution, in front of a sold-crowd and millions more watching on WWE Network.

The Man is out, and The Queen is in.

In a shocking turn of events, Mr. McMahon removed Becky Lynch from the WrestleMania Raw Women’s Title Match that she earned on the strength of her Royal Rumble Match victory, and Charlotte Flair has been handpicked to take her place. The Chairman’s decision came about after a contentious couple of weeks between Becky and the McMahon family, whose insistence that she obtain medical clearance for her injured knee led to a heated confrontation and an indefinite suspension for the former SmackDown Women’s Champion until she got the green light from WWE’s medical staff.

Doing so wasn’t enough to sway the immovable Mr. McMahon, however, especially after Becky attacked Stephanie McMahon on Raw one night before slapping Triple H on SmackDown LIVE, and The Chairman levied a 60-day suspension against The Man that would carry her past WrestleMania. Moments later, he introduced Charlotte as his pick to challenge Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at The Showcase of the Immortals, thus nixing one highly-anticipated matchup while setting the stage for a sequel to one of 2018’s most brutal, unexpected contests — a clash in which, coincidentally, Flair was a last-minute replacement for an injured Lynch as well.

Both champion and challenger will likely be hoping for a different result, as that Survivor Series bout ended in a disqualification in Ronda’s favor when a frustrated Flair unleashed an uncomfortable, prolonged attack with a steel chair and Kendo stick. Though Rousey technically escaped with the win, the savage showing revitalized Charlotte in the ensuing months and denied The Baddest Woman on the Planet a truly decisive victory. With no shortage of bad blood between the competitors, The Queen now has an opportunity to serve Rousey her first singles loss, take her championship and finish what she started. Of course, Rousey, with her long memory and vicious Armbar, has an opportunity of her own: To make Charlotte regret ever deciding to challenge her in the first place, let alone twice.

Tune in to WrestleMania to see whether Charlotte can take the Raw Women’s Title from Rousey when The Showcase of the Immortals streams live Sunday, April 7, at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network!

Charlotte Flair, Becky Lynch and Carmella all staked their claims as to why they would be most deserving to face off against SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka at Royal Rumble last week. All three Superstars will now get their chance as they’ll square off in a Triple Threat Match this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE and the winner will move on to face Asuka for the title in Phoenix, Arizona on Jan. 27.

Charlotte and Becky both feel that they should be SmackDown Women’s Champion at this present moment and only are not because of Ronda Rousey’s interference in their match against Asuka at WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs. Carmella, who reigned as SmackDown Women’s Champion for a staggering 130 days in 2018, has multiple victories over Flair, Lynch and Asuka, and believes that puts her right in line for another title opportunity.

All of this has been taken under consideration by the McMahon family, and now the three top challengers will collide this Tuesday night on the blue brand to prove who is most ready for Asuka next. Who will prevail? Find out this Tuesday night on SmackDown LIVE at 8/7 C on USA Network.
