For the women, that journey has been harder, as they were often not given the chance to have featured matches on the show with plenty of time in order to create great matches, but thankfully that is something that is changing.

The women have now got to the point where they are able to have WrestleMania main event matches, and even when they were given limited time the women managed to impress, and within the article, we will rank the 10 greatest female WrestleMania matches in history.

10 Nia Jax vs Alexa Bliss (WrestleMania 34)

We kick start the list with a singles match from WrestleMania 34 which really showcased how far WWE has come in terms of storytelling with the women's division, putting together a brilliant storyline for Nia Jax and Alexa Bliss.

Competing over the Raw Women's Championship, WWE focused on building Alexa Bliss as a huge bully that had picked on Jax over her size and weight, which meant that fans really wanted to see her get destroyed here.

While Bliss did a great job at avoiding Nia to build the tension, telling the classic David vs Goliath story, when Jax finally got her hands on Alexa and defeated her the crowd erupted in what was a great moment on the show.

9 Paige & AJ Lee vs The Bella Twins (WrestleMania 31)

While it is a shame that talented workers like the Bella Twins, Paige, and AJ Lee never got to have a major WrestleMania singles match, having all four of them together does seem fitting, as they all played huge roles in getting the women's division to where it is today.

Considering how talented all of them are, it isn't a surprise that this was a good match, and while it wasn't anything groundbreaking or show-stealing, with the time that they had all four put on a solid showing.

The Bella Twins have always done a great job at gaining heat when needed, and they certainly managed that on the Grandest Stage Of Them All, which really helped pt AJ and Paige over.

8 Nia Jax vs Bayley vs Sasha Banks vs Charlotte Flair (WrestleMania 33)

When it comes to WrestleMania, WWE often makes the decision to pile in lots of multi-woman matches in an attempt to fill the card and give everyone a spot, and while that often doesn't work at WrestleMania 33 it did.

This particular match saw WWE load in four of its biggest stars at once and while fatal four-way matches are always hard to do well, the women certainly gave it their best efforts and put on a solid bout.

With Nia Jax dominating with her strength, the members of the Four Horsewomen had to band together to take her down, with Bayley surprisingly managing to retain her title.

7 Jazz vs Trish Stratus vs Lita (WrestleMania 18)

When you look at the names of the three women involved, it shouldn't be a surprise that this was a very good wrestling match, with three of the greatest female wrestlers of all time mixing it up.

This came towards the back end of the Attitude Era, and while many people long for those days to return, as far as the women's division is concerned, that period of time coming to an end was the best thing possible.

The match was put in a tough spot having to follow The Rock and Hulk Hogan, and they only got a very limited amount of time, but the trio ran with everything they had, making this a big sprint that was plenty of fun.

6 Kurt Angle & Ronda Rousey vs Triple H & Stephanie McMahon (WrestleMania 34)

Granted, this is a mixed tag team match, but it features both Ronda Rousey and Stephanie McMahon, and therefore it deserves its place on the list, and in truth, had it not been for the inclusion of men it could actually have gone higher.

This match totally stole the show at WrestleMania 34 in what was actually Rousey's in-ring debut, with the former UFC star going above and beyond what was expected from fans, setting a ridiculously high bar for herself moving forward.

From seeing Rousey square up and fight Triple H to slapping Stephanie McMahon in the armbar, this match had everything the fans wanted to see and was far better than anyone had hoped for in what was an amazing match.

5 Trish Stratus vs Mickie James (WrestleMania 22)

When you think about women's matches at WrestleMania, the bout between Trish Stratus and Mickie James at WrestleMania 22 is often one of the first people think about, with this being a tremendous bout.

WWE had invested a serious amount of time into the build-up of this match, and because of that the fans really cared about it heading in, and the two women then made sure that the match itself lived up to that.

James and Stratus had incredible chemistry and put on a great back and forth match with several believable near falls, making the most of the time they were given.

4 Trish Stratus vs Jazz vs Victoria (WrestleMania 19)

WrestleMania 19 saw another excellent women's triple threat match that saw Trish Stratus and Jazz once again lock up, except this time the Women's Champion, Victoria was thrown into the mix, adding a slightly different dynamic.

While they didn't get much more time than the WrestleMania 18 match, they were put in a position to have more of an impact on the show in general, which is why it ranks higher up on this list.

While it was Jazz who dominated the vast majority of the match in the end it was Trish Stratus who walked away with the Women's Title.

3 Charlotte Flair vs Ronda Rousey vs Becky Lynch (WrestleMania 35)

In terms of historical importance, it doesn't get much bigger than this, with the triple threat marking the first time that a women's match has headlined a WrestleMania, and it wasn't just for the sake of it either, it was something that they deserved.

There wasn't a hotter storyline heading into WrestleMania 35 than this, and although Charlotte Flair's inclusion came rather late on, it certainly did help build this match even more and added some excitement to the match.

While the finish of the match fell a little flat, with people wanting to see Ronda Rousey tap out here, that doesn't take away from the fact that it was a very good wrestling match.

2 Charlotte Flair vs Asuka (WrestleMania 34)

This was a dream match that fans were incredibly excited to see and the fact WWE held off on it until WrestleMania was an incredibly smart decision, building it to have Charlotte Flair as a champion taking on the undefeated Asuka.

Nobody could call which talent would walk away with the victory in this match and WWE gave them plenty of time to showcase their talents, with The Queen eventually reigning supreme, ending the undefeated record of Asuka.

In terms of pure wrestling, the two put on an absolute masterclass, but the fact that the fans were so invested and WWE had built the storyline so well only helped enhance things.

1 Charlotte Flair vs Becky Lynch vs Sasha Banks (WrestleMania 32)

This was a turning point for women's wrestling and still remains the greatest female match in WrestleMania history, with this being the moment that they were no longer considered to be 'divas' but women once again.

WWE put the three biggest names they had all into one match and the trio clearly went out with something to prove, wanting to make sure this wasn't the last time WWE featured the women in a featured spot.

The trio completely stole the show, with huge entrances, amazing wrestling that was jam-packed with high spots, incredible reversals and the fact that it was impossible to pick who would win, with Charlotte Flair eventually coming out on top.
