Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair might not main event WrestleMania 35. Matter of fact, the match might not happen at all.
Ever since Rousey landed in WWE, rumors about a women’s match headlining a future WrestleMania spread like wildfire. The obvious match that everyone bought in even before “Rowdy” debuted was the box-office dream match featuring Rousey vs. Flair at WrestleMania. However, that match is still not cent percent confirmed.
According to the Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Rousey vs. Flair is an idea that WWE is looking to bank in but there are other ideas too that Vince McMahon’s promotion is considering.
It’s no secret that Rousey is hands-down the biggest mainstream star in WWE given her massive fanbase, UFC history and pop-culture involvements. Even UFC President Dana White had to attend WrestleMania 34 in person to watch the debut of the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion.
Ronda created history at SummerSlam by becoming the first woman on the planet to have held both a WWE and an UFC title. She defeated Alexa Bliss to capture her first gold in the WWE: The RAW Women’s Championship.
Charlotte Flair also continued her SummerSlam title streak by capturing the SmackDown Women’s Championship at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
A few years ago during an interview, 16-time World Champion and WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair was interviewed pitched the idea of a dream match between her daughter Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey. This happened way before there was any discussion of WWE signing The Baddest Woman On the Planet.
During SummerSlam weekend, Charlotte Flair had to say the following when she was asked about a potential dream match with Ronda Rousey:
“I want to face her, that has crossed my mind.” She added, “When I think of WrestleMania and headlining, I think of the biggest stories, the biggest stars. I just know in order to be in the main event picture, it would take the right storyline.”
The Queen also called out Rousey for a match at WrestleMania when she graced ESPN’s “Get Up” morning show this past week.
