WNZ Open Season: Divas Main Eventing WrestleMania?

WWE Hall of Fame
Recently, Becky Lynch spoke out following NXT:Respect, saying that she feels Divas can eventually main event WWE PPVs. We have, after all, seen WWE Hall of Fame Divas main event RAW, so why not a major PPV? Why not…WrestleMania?

Perhaps that’s a dream that never ends up a reality, but let’s just discuss this, shall we? Keeping in mind the many decorated women who have graced a WWE ring over the decades, we have perhaps the most female talent on a WWE roster at once, right now. Current champion Charlotte, former champion Paige, contender Naomi and former NXT Champion Sasha Banks are all going at it at the same time, and that doesn’t even get into the contributions from The Bellas, Alicia, Natty and others. In short, right now, the Divas division is stacked, and there’s still more talent getting ready to break through in NXT.

So, while an NXT main event may not seem like much, and I won’t dare compare it to a SummerSlam or WrestleMania level main event, why couldn’t the Divas get there? Is it really so crazy? Sasha and Bayley just had a 30 minute spectacle, something that could actually merit Match of the Year honors-not for Divas matches, but for all matches. And Bayley isn’t even on the main roster yet. So why couldn’t we see a similar 30+ minute match, on the grandest stage wrestling has to offer, as the main event attraction? Could you imagine Sasha versus Bayley for the Divas title at a future ‘Mania? Or Sasha versus Charlotte? Or any other Divas pairing, primarily leaning on those recent call-ups?

Five or ten years ago, if I’d suggested it, you’d think I was crazy, and I wouldn’t blame you. But now? Not so crazy, is it? At the end of the day, if WWE can craft a compelling storyline, handle a proper buildup and give them ample time and creative space to steal the show, I see no reason why Divas couldn’t garner the main event.

Would you want to see a Divas main event at a future WrestleMania?

    The divas revolution is a corporate façade that women are actually better off now; are they hell (on the main roster) unless something actually changes then in short nope, never.

  • Lemmy Is God

    Yeah that’s never gonna happen….I can see it happening on a bullshit ppv but not wrestlemania

  • Jakerams

    The only way I see it happening is if the rumble is either gone or the rumble winner uses his chance ahead of the rumble.

  • jcice13

    to say never is wrong but to say in the next 10 years or so? then it won’t happen…

  • josh

    I don’t see them headlining Mania anytime soon especially while Vince is still in charge. Maybe when he is gone but even then it’s a long shot.

  • ronny

    god i hope not. for a long time wwe has been my only escape from feminism

  • solu

    lol if they want to sell tickets thats not happening

  • Victor82

    Never while Vince is in charge.

    It’s highly unlikely. Maybe they can main event a raw here and there. It even seems unlikely that they’ll main event any ppvs, but wrestlemania no way. Look I love the divas reveloution and the Matches between Bailey and Sasha, were amazing throw in becky, Charlotte, paige and some others and you have a fantastic womens divison. However on the grandest stage I don’t feel they could deliver a conpelling enough story to main event. Also I wouldn’t say they put on a match as good as some of cena’s matches with owens, rollins and cesaro among other incredible matches. However it certainly stole the show at takeover and was one of the better matches ive seen on wwe television but not the very best. Wwe is a mans world. The divas can put on fantastic matches, however I just can’t see how the company can make a women or diva the face of the company or biggest star in order to main event mania. I don’t think it can be done.

  • Starman

    I could see them doing an all divas ppv like tna has done a few times. They’re not overly reliant on ppv buys now so it’s not so risky. Maybe a network special. The only way a divas match would be anywhere near the main event of WrestleMania is if Rousey was involved. If the main event had any relation to the match quality we wouldn’t have had Cena main event most ppvs.

  • Fat Owens Fat

    Nope. Not going to happen and even if it does it might get the ratings for one ppv and then the movement fizzles out like Zack Ryder’s career. The current divas have already bored me out thanks to that crappy show titled Total Divas and they seem less bothered to protect their character and are overexposing the business to an extent that i no longer am able to buy the whole faction rivalry because they pretty much show us how chilled everyone is post match every week and how they all hang out together as friends week in and week out. Now why would i want to think PCB/BAD/Bellas are bitter rivals?
