Charlotte Flair claims she and Rhea Ripley will put on a main event show at WrestleMania 39.

Recently, The reigning SmackDown Women’s Champion had an interview with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes. During the interview, she gave three reasons why thinks her match against The Eradicator is WrestleMania’s main event worthy.

Her first reason was as Ripley was the 2023 Women’s Royal Rumble winner, which means a “guaranteed” spot at WrestleMania main event. Secondly, she believes that both of them will put a main event-worthy show ahead of the audience.

“I think you have two titans, two athletes who—regardless of their story or who have faced each other prior—are gonna put on a main event match solely on that, knowing that they’re capable of the storytelling,” The Queen said.

But another match in the offing could steal the spotlight from Ripley and Flair.

Can the reunion of Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens steal the main event spot from Flair and Ripley?

But The Queen’s third point strongly indicates that this might not be happening. As per Flair, if “a main title is on the line” then the match automatically becomes worthy of the main event spot. Which is similar to her case.

In the end, she said that a lot of current storylines are WrestleMania-worthy. But she and The Eradicator will do their best to earn that main event spot, next month. Well, the WWE Universe will have to wait to find out who will be main-eventing Night 1 of The Grandest Stage of Them All.
