WrestleMania 35’s Main Event Crowned A Women’s Double Champ

WWE

This Sunday’s WrestleMania featured the first women’s main event in the history of the WWE PPV, a high-profile triple threat match between Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch, and Charlotte Flair. Rousey went into the show holding the Raw Women’s Championship and Flair the SmackDown Women’s Championship, with Lynch having earned a spot in the match by winning the Women’s Royal Rumble. This match was set to be winner-take-all, with both titles on the line.


The aggressive match started about seven hours into WrestleMania 35, including the kickoff show. The women broke out signature submissions and some two-on-one offense and made use of the “no disqualification” aspect of triple threats with fighting outside of the ring and the use of a table.

The finish of the match saw Lynch counter Rousey’s Piper’s Pit, her set-up for the armbar, by turning her opponent over into a pin to get the three-count and win both titles. This was the first time Rousey had been pinned or submitted in WWE.

As Michael Cole put it on commentary as Lynch raised both the red and the blue title high, “Tonight will be known as Wrestle-Man-ia.”
