WrestleMania 35‘s main event was set up as an epic. Not only was it the climax of a heated, months-long feud between Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair, but it was a winner-take-all match for both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships as well as the first women’s match to main event a WrestleMania event.
The first entrance in the arena was that of Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. As previously announced, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts played her theme song, “Bad Reputation,” live in MetLife Stadium. Rousey entered wearing the most “Rowdy” Roddy Piper-tribute version of her gear, along with custom shoes made for this event.
“The Queen” Charlotte Flair‘s entrance began earlier via Titantron video. Flair pulled up to the arena in a helicopter. A red carpet was rolled out for her before she exited the vehicle. She stepped out to the carpet clad in blue gear to match her Smackdown Women’s Championship belt and staff helped her into one of her signature robes. Once in the ring, her entrance was given extra, literal pop with special-occasion WrestleMania fireworks.
Becky Lynch, in keeping her no-nonsense persona since she became “The Man,” entered as usual, but with badass new gear and even more intensity. She was supported by a sea of “The Man” signs in the audience.
