Ronda Rousey & Becky Lynch Are The Current Picks To Headline WrestleMania [Rumor]

The main event will likely change a lot between now and WrestleMania, but the match currently in that headline slot is Ronda Rousey versus Becky Lynch.

The women of WWE have achieved so much in 2018 that there really aren't many firsts them for them to tick off. There is that one big one, though. The landmark that has been hanging over the entire division and the revolution that has been raging in WWE. A women's match in the main event slot of WrestleMania.

Not one of the main event slots as Vince McMahon likes to put it. While there are a number of marquee matches at every WrestleMania, which women have already featured in, there is only one true main event. The match that closes the show. A year ago that goal felt like a distant dream for female wrestlers. Today, it seems as if it is almost a given that it will happen in 2019 at WrestleMania 35.

RUMOR: WWE ORIGINALLY PLANNED FOR RONDA ROUSEY TO FACE NATALYA AT WRESTLEMANIA 35

However, Wrestling Observer Newsletter has reported that women headling the biggest show of the year wasn't always the plan. Apparently, the slot was originally being reserved for Roman Reigns versus Dean Ambrose. If that plan would have had the chance to unfold, Reigns would have become the first Superstar ever to headline five WrestleManias in a row. Sadly, it is highly unlikely The Big Dog will be back in time to set that record.

With Reigns sidelined, Mr. McMahon shifted his attention to the women's division. When Reigns was the planned main eventer, WON believes WWE planned to have Rousey take on Natalya. As plans changed, Nattie changed to Charlotte Flair, and then eventually Flair to Becky Lynch. As it stands, that is still the reported plan. Rousey versus Lynch in the WrestleMania 35 main event.

That might come as a surprise to some fans following the events at TLC. Right now it feels as if WWE is building to a triple threat at 'Mania between Rousey, Lynch, and Flair. However, there is a lot of wrestling to be done between now and April 7, 2019. Mr. McMahon will probably change his mind time and time again. Plus, who knows what will happen when it comes to injuries and fans getting behind certain stars.
