Former Champion Argues Women Need To Prove They Can Carry A WrestleMania Main Event WWE

Former WWE Women’s Champion Madusa (Alundra Blayze) has shared her honest thoughts on women in WrestleMania main event matches.

At WrestleMania 39, both nights of action were headlined by men’s championship matches. In the closing match of the April 1 show, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens defeated The Usos to win the WWE Tag Team Title.

The next night, Roman Reigns pinned Cody Rhodes to retain the WWE Undisputed Universal Championship.

Some have argued that the Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley SmackDown Women’s Title bout should’ve main evented night one of WrestleMania 39.

Speaking with, Madusa argued that WWE’s women’s division isn’t currently ready for the WrestleMania main event position, noting:

“It’s not that I’m going to take Triple H’s side, but women want equality and women want what everyone else has, and because rightfully so in a world and where we’re at.

“However, I’m going to go back to where you have to prove that you can do that spot. So people and women and everybody feel that, ‘Hey, we’ve earned this spot. We need to main event’, or ‘Hey, straight from the Royal Rumble, we get a spot.’

“But you gotta ask yourself this question and everybody out there. ‘Is a match or a storyline strong enough to carry a main event at WrestleMania?’ So on the defense of women, we’re only as good as a group.

“You yourself as a wrestler and your training and your ability to deliver. Number two, I’m only as good as the ring because if that ring ain’t put together and it falls apart and I’m wrestling, my match goes to crap.

“Number three, I’m only as good as the creative writers and what the storyline they give me. Number four, their social media and how they market you. You are a package.

“You’re a total package and you rely not just on yourself all the time 100% to deliver, but these other three people, and it’s very F’ing important.

“I cannot stress enough, I would love to see women carry a whole card at WrestleMania, but we’re not there (yet). We’re not.

“You’re gonna tell me as soon as we can have women stories that are creative enough to make sense, and women that can deliver all of that stuff, because there is many, many talented women that could and that deserve longer times and more input and whatnot, but it’s got to have that believability and you’ve got to have that support with the company you work with.

“I know they say they do, they’re given them that platform, and they get all of this stuff, but that whole Bloodline, that whole match, it was Cody Rhodes, and I’m sorry, but it was so good, and I can’t think of one woman’s match during WrestleMania that would have carried WrestleMania.

“I have to take his (Triple H’s) side and I’m a woman. If I think it’s right, I’m going to say it. Is it what it is. Those are my feelings. Those are my facts.”
