WWE Hall Of Famer Jim Ross talked with Sports Illustrated recently. During the discussion, JR ended up on the topic of WrestleMania 35. He said that Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch feel like the most fitting main event for the event.
“I would be very comfortable in booking Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey in the main event at WrestleMania,” said Ross. “I wouldn’t be offended if they added Charlotte to that match, but right now, Becky and Ronda would be my match on top. That’s the hottest thing they have going right now.”
Ross went on to say that no male performer is as popular as Becky & Ronda, and the marketing opportunities would be too good to pass up.
“Right now, none of the men are red hot,” said Ross. “You can’t say that about the women. They have captivated the attention of the fans. There is no male red hot enough to make me want to supersede putting them above Rousey or Lynch in the main event at WrestleMania.
“WWE can also market to the outside world that this is the first time in history that women are going to close the show. That is an amazing opportunity, and these women would be pioneers for the company.”
