WWE Hall of Famers Jim Ross and Jerry ‘the King’ Lawler were recently interviewed by Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated in order to promote their two-man show this weekend at Hilarities 4th Street Theatre in Cleveland.
The WWE Legends talked about various topics during this interview including what they think will be the main event match of Wrestlemania 35. This is where JR noted that he would like to see SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch vs. Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey in the WrestleMania main event.
“I would be very comfortable in booking Becky Lynch vs. Ronda Rousey in the main event at WrestleMania. 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.”
“Right now, none of the men are red hot. 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.”
WrestleMania 35 is scheduled to take place on Sunday, April 7, 2019, in East Rutherford, NJ at MetLife Stadium. This event airs on pay-per-view (PPV) and WWE Network. It’s the most successful and longest-running professional wrestling event in history.
“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.”
