Hot off the announcement that Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair will be the first women in history to main-event WrestleMania, the Raw Women’s Champion and her two opponents will kick off Raw by competing in a Beat the Clock Challenge against The Riott Squad. The rules of this unique exhibition are somewhat straightforward: Rousey, Lynch and Flair will each be paired off against a member of The Riott Squad, and whichever of the six Superstars records the fastest victory against her respective opponent wins the Challenge. The pairings have yet to be announced, but given the variables of who faces whom — not to mention Rousey’s increasingly instantaneous victories against her foes — it’s looking like every second will count, more so than usual.

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.

Like she feels sorry for Becky. Like Ronda felt sorry for you on Sunday. You got a hand out. Never in her life has she seen someone do so little and take credit for so much.

Charlotte says that is why she will have to make you and Ronda relevant when you bow down to the queen.

Becky tells Charlotte to shut up. You did nothing with this for four years and Becky came in and main evented Wrestlemania. We don’t need a queen, we need a man.
