The women's division of the WWE was rebranded back in 2016, and was formerly known as the divas division.

The advertisement shows the the marquee matches for Wrestlemania 35, which includes Kofi Kingston vs Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship.

For the first time ever, a women's match will be the main event at April's WrestleMania 35, according to a press release. While many had speculated or hoped that this one would simply be a one on one match featuring Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey, the triple threat match has been booked and will serve as a great main event.

In her reaction to finding out she will be main eventing WrestleMania, The Man said on Twitter: "I ran my mouth, put in the miles, took the bumps and entertained the people till they couldn't deny me any longer".

Fast forward three manias later, the ladies will close out the show.


The Man was named Wrestler of the Year by both Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports in 2018.

The three women involved are among WWE's biggest names with former UFC champion Rousey blazing a trail since she entered the fray a year ago.

The Irish Lass Kicker was also the first woman ever to top ESPN's WWE Power Rankings. The last time the stadium hosted WrestleMania, there wasn't a single women's match.

McMahon then replaced her with Charlotte, who lost to Rousey via disqualification at Survivor Series.
