It may not seem like it but WrestleMania is less than two weeks away. “The Showcase of the Immortals” will go on as scheduled at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando Florida.
This year, the event will be a two-night event for the first time ever. In addition, WrestleMania 36 will be pre-recorded in an empty arena, which will make it even more noteworthy.
Honestly, it’s a little disappointing to see the biggest event in professional wrestling confined to small spaces and it will be even more jarring without a live audience. Still, there is plenty for women’s wrestling fans to look forward to.
Not too long ago, female performers were routinely absent or subjected to the shortest matches on the card. Now, there’s a chance that we could see four women’s title matches on “The Grandest Stage of Them All.”
So far, WWE has confirmed that Bayley and Becky Lynch will defend their respective titles. Meanwhile, Charlotte Flair will challenge the first reigning NXT Women’s Champion to appear at WrestleMania, Rhea Ripley.
There is room to criticize WWE’s use of their female Superstars but this seems like the natural progression after women headlined WrestleMania last year.
It was great to see Lynch, Flair, and Ronda Rousey receive such an honor. However, true progress means more opportunities for women to perform at major events.
With that said, let’s take a look at the top five WrestleMania matches featuring women to prepare for this year’s edition.
