• Rumored WrestleMania 35 Main Event Not A Lock
WrestleMania is still a long time away but rumors about what matches might take place at the event have started swirling around the internet. One match which is reportedly being planned by WWE for the event is Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey.
There were reports earlier this year that this match is slated to be the main event of WrestleMania 35 (the first ever women’s match main eventing WrestleMania).
The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the match is not a 100% lock but the idea is certainly on the boards. WWE is also considering a number of other ideas.
Charlotte has already expressed interest in facing Rousey before. Main eventing WrestleMania will be a huge achievement for both women.
