Natalya: I Strongly Believe Women Will Headline WWE WrestleMania 35

Natalya has a good feeling about WrestleMania 35.

The women in WWE have been making history all year, first with the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble in January and most recently at WWE Evolution, the first-ever all-women's pay-per-view. The only thing left on the checklist for the female superstars of WWE is to headline the biggest show of the year; WrestleMania.

Speaking to The Wrap, Natalya believes 2019 will be the year women finally close the pinnacle of sports entertainment.

“I think we are gonna headline WrestleMania this year,” she said. “I feel strongly that we will do that. The Women’s Evolution right now in WWE– it’s on fire. Women have never been involved as they are right now in the company, and we’re doing things every single day to show that women are at the forefront. We have women behind the scenes that are in charge, like Stephanie McMahon and Michelle Wilson and so many different women taking on leadership roles in the company. We had our first-ever all-women’s pay-per-view. I’ve been a part of so many first-ever, incredible female moments in the company, like the first-ever women’s Money in the Bank Ladder Match, the first-ever Women’s Royal Rumble, the first-ever Women’s Table Match…”

Women headlining WrestleMania has been a big topic over the past couple of months with the rise of Becky Lynch and star status of Ronda Rousey. Stephanie McMahon said prior to WWE Evolution that she hopes to see women main event WrestleMania. Trish Stratus also advocated for women headlining the show, as long as the story made sense and it wasn't done for "making history" purposes.

WWE WrestleMania 35 takes place on Sunday, Apr. 7 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
