Rousey first used the song as her walk-out theme during her UFC days, and brought it over when she debuted for the WWE in January 2018. WWE announced on Monday that her Raw Women's Championship match against Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair would be the first-ever women's match to be the main event of WrestleMania.
"For the first time in WWE history, a women's match will be the main event of WrestleMania as the Raw Women's Championship Match featuring Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Becky Lynch will take place on Sunday, April 7 in front of a capacity crowd at MetLife Stadium and streaming live on WWE Network around the world," WWE announced in its press release.
All three women posted their reactions to the announcement on Twitter.
"I came. I saw. I changed the game," Rousey wrote. "Three women are going to headline #Wrestlemania this year. Iwon't hold my breath expecting any thank yous, but you're all welcome anyway."
"I ran my mouth, put in the miles, took the bumps and entertained the people till they couldn't deny me any longer," Lynch said. "It's an emotional day just knowing I get to smash Ronnie and Char in front of the whole world on the biggest stage possible. To the people: THANK YOU."
"It's been my...it's been OUR goal to main event #WrestleMania," Flair tweeted. "It was never just talk, it was the hard work of every woman past, present, and future to get us here. We won't let you down. 13 days."
WrestleMania 35 will take place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
