Cape Town - A women's match will headline WWE's flagship show, WrestleMania, for the first time in the event's 35-year history.

WrestleMania 35 takes place at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, April 7. 

While heavyweights like Brock Lesnar, Seth Rollins, Roman Reigns, HHH and Batista will all be involved, the main event has instead been reserved for a triple-threat match for the WWE Raw Women's Championship. 

Champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title against seven-time champion Charlotte Flair and arguably the most popular superstar in all of WWE currently, Becky Lynch.  

At WrestleMania 32 in 2016, WWE re-branded the Divas Division the Women’s Division and unveiled a new Women’s Championship title.

Since that time, the women’s evolution has placed a greater spotlight on WWE’s female performers, including more prominent storylines and deeper character development that showcases their athleticism, charisma and star power. 

Last October, WWE held it’s first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view event, Evolution, in front of a sold-crowd and millions more watching on WWE Network.
