Ronda Rousey claims Becky Lynch and Charlotte couldn’t have main evented WrestleMania alone

Ronda Rousey Raw

WWE took what probably was the biggest step for the Women’s revolution recently and announced that the Raw Women’s Championship will be main eventing WrestleMania this year.

And as it turns out, the Raw Women’s Champion and former UFC fighter Ronda Rousey wants the credit for taking the women’s wrestling to this level.

In the latest episode of her Ronda on the Road YouTube show, the former UFC fighter talked about WrestleMania claiming that Becky Lynch and Charlotte couldn’t have main evented the show on their own:

“It’s really cool to see people so pissed off, that thought I would fail miserably, and see that within one year, I’m in the main event of WrestleMania. You know what? I could promise you that Charlotte vs. Becky 9000 would not have made the main event of WrestleMania. They need me and I made it happen,”

While Ronda is probably just playing her character, how much effect her arrival has had on the women’s wrestling in WWE is a topic up for debate and we’ll probably never know if the women could have achieved this status if she had never signed with the company.

    It may have been a “conversation”, but it is doubtful as to whether or not Vince actually would have pulled the trigger, were it not for Rousey’s perceived (and apparently actually fairly lacking) “crossover appeal” to the non-wrestling audience. I would love to disagree with this idiot on anything, trust me. But in this case, scripted or not, I’m afraid she’s likely right.

    actually its been a conversation for years for a womans main event. So, she has no idea wtf she is talking about. As usual

    Sadly, even though she has zero business being in the main event of WM, she’s likely right. The only reason Vince is doing is, is because he thinks she has “star power”. And because clearly, he has no real faith in any of his “rising” top male stars.
