Sami Zayn & Charlotte Flair Share Their Thoughts On Possibly Headlining WrestleMania 39


WWE is yet to announce the main event of WrestleMania (Night One), leading fans to speculate about the potential headliner for tonight. The rumored choices are Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley and Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn vs. The Usos.

In an interview with ESPN, Sami Zayn explained that his tag team match has the better story and should be the one that main events the inaugural night of WrestleMania. He said,


“Headlining, main event, whatever… These sometimes are bragging terms but my opinion, best story wins. This has been the story that’s carried the company for a year. It’s broken records with seemingly every metric we have, be it ratings being up, merchandise numbers being up, social media engagement… We’ll just see where it all ends up, but I think the story has spoken for itself.”

Meanwhile, on the latest Out of Character podcast, reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair noted that both Royal Rumble winners should headline both nights of WrestleMania. Since Cody Rhodes, the men’s Royal Rumble winner, is main-eventing Sunday night against Roman Reigns, it only makes sense for the women’s Rumble winner Rhea Ripley to headline WrestleMania (Night One) with her. Charlotte said,

“If we don’t close, like am I going to be disappointed? Sure. But is it going to take away from the match and the moment and how we feel? No. I just go, ‘How do we as women know that, like, well why is theirs [men’s Royal Rumble match] guaranteed and ours isn’t?’“
