Following the announcement that this year’s WrestleMania Main event match will feature a Women’s match for the first time in the history, the ladies from the match, Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair went on SportsCenter early this morning to discuss the historic news and what does it mean for the industry as whole. Let’s look at what each of them said at the show.

Becky Lynch

“I’ve been working towards this obsessively since I was 15 years old. I left home, traveled to Canada, around Japan and around Europe. There was a period there where I left the business because I didn’t think that this was possible. There was always part of me that just felt like I had more to do. I wanted to accomplish this dream. Even when I got signed to WWE, one of my good friends, I said to them, ‘I’m going to main event WrestleMania’ and he said it is good to dream but be realistic. Here we are.”

Charlotte Flair

“It is a huge dream. Main eventing WrestleMania is the pinnacle of the Women’s Evolution. Even two years ago I think most people would say that’s impossible. Look what women from the past helped us get here and what we’ve created over the past few months. Now we’re walking into MetLife with a capacity of 80,000 people and main eventing WrestleMania.”

Ronda Rousey

“On one hand, I was already expecting it, and on another hand, I was just really happy that it was finally certain. It seemed like an abstract goal somewhere far in the future. I came into WWE just a year ago and my goal from the very beginning was that I wanted to be a part of the first women’s main event for WrestleMania. It is incredible the amount of momentum that we’ve been able to generate within just a year. Look at last year’s WrestleMania compared to now. What I think is happening in WWE is really a parallel for everything that is happening culturally around the world. The WWE product just copies everything else that is happening for the women’s evolution and revolution from every industry out there. I really think that this is one of those mediums where you can affect real social change and how women view themselves. This is the same company that had Bra and Panty matches that are now raising the women to the highest pinnacle that they have in the industry”
