A crowd of more than 50,000 is expected
For months, WWE fans have been wondering if and when women would have a main Wrestlemania event and it looks like the wait is almost over.
WWE has revealed a new poster for WrestleMania. For the first time in WWE history, a women’s match will be the main event of WrestleMania as the Raw Women’s Championship Match featuring Ronda Rousey vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch.
The match will take place on Sunday, April 7, in front of a capacity crowd at MetLife Stadium and streamed live on the WWE Network across the world. A crowd of more than 50,000 is expected.

Women have been involved in spotlight matches before, like Charlotte/Asuka and the mixed-tag match involving Rousey and Stephanie McMahon at last year’s WrestleMania, but they have never been in the final match of the night.
Over the past few years, WWE has enjoyed a real women’s revolution in professional wrestling and this will be another first with the women’s match headlining the company’s biggest card of the year.
At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, WWE re-branded the Divas Division the Women’s Division and unveiled a new Women’s Championship title. Since that time, the women’s evolution has placed a greater spotlight on WWE’s female superstars, including more prominent storylines and deeper character development that showcases their athleticism, charisma and star power.
