Ronda Rousey To Headline WrestleMania 35
Former UFC women’s bantamweight queen Ronda Rousey made her WWE debut last year. Now the RAW Women’s Champion, Rousey will face both Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch at WrestleMania next month.
For months, Becky Lynch was touted to face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania, and with Charlotte entering the fray, there were reports about WWE wanting to put them in the main event.
WWE has now confirmed that the trio will in fact close the show at WrestleMania 35. This will make Ronda Rousey the first woman to headline WrestleMania, along with Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch!
Ronda previously became the face of women’s MMA when she dominated the women’s division in the UFC. After running through the competition, Ronda faced her first loss against Holly Holm at UFC 193. Ronda then lost to Amanda Nunes inside the first round, after which she walked away from the sport.
Ronda Rousey was also inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame last year, becoming the first woman to be inducted into the promotion’s Hall of Fame.
