Charlotte Flair was part of history at this year’s Wrestlemania, as she competed in a triple threat match against Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch in the main event of Wrestlemania. It was the first time women closed out the show. However, she believes that it shouldn’t happen every year.
While speaking to Fox News, Flair said that women should only main event next year’s Wrestlemania if they are involved in a great storyline. She explained that women main evented this year’s event as the storyline garnered a lot of attention and fans were clearly invested in it. However, that might not happen every year.
It’s great that main eventing WrestleMania but it’s what’s next — how do you continue that momentum? I do think that say next year, [if] there isn’t as an intriguing story, no the women should not main event. The reason we are main eventing this year is because this story caught fire. People have been invested and they’ve stayed invested, but say that it wasn’t [the case]: It’s who has the best story it’s who the audience is connecting with. That’s what’s most important.
While the women’s storyline did manage to get a lot of attention from fans leading into WrestleMania, the fans gradually become more invested in Kofi Kingston’s storyline which led some to believe that WWE should have changed the main event.
