For WrestleMania 39 first Night
Charlotte Flair does a Rhea Ripley takedown
Charlotte Flair will be defending the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Rhea Ripley in two weeks at WrestleMania 39, Saptarshi Sinha writes for EWRESTLINGNEWS.
With Roman Reigns vs. Cody Rhodes’ Undisputed WWE Universal Title match headlining the second night of WrestleMania 39, 2-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair wishes for Flair vs. Ripley to main event the inaugural night of The Showcase Of Immortals this year.
On the most recent episode of his To Be The Man podcast, Flair opined how WWE should book the first night of WrestleMania Goes Hollywood.
On his reasoning for supporting a Flair/Ripley Night One headliner: “I would put it on right before Rhea and Charlotte. There’s no way you can’t… as entertaining as it might be, in my estimation, there’s no way you put a tag match on ahead of a championship [match], that someone won the Royal Rumble. I’ve seen things like that happen before, but I don’t anticipate that being the case. I think the women’s championship [match], the fact that Rhea had to win the Royal Rumble, which is a huge event, it’s the [way] to getting to pick the champion you want to wrestle from SmackDown or Raw, and Rhea picked Charlotte. I would have to think that would be the main event. But that match will be very entertaining.”
On the scope of this year’s WrestleMania: “It’s LA. It doesn’t get any bigger. We were out there a long time ago, and I thought to myself, ‘This is cool,’ but now they’ve got the SoFi Stadium and sold out both nights. I’m really excited. But to answer that question, I would hope the main event would be [Charlotte] and Rhea.”
