Wrestlemania 32 - 04/03/16
This match will always be special to me, considering that it was the first Wrestlemania I went to after 13 years and my first one as an adult. This women's match was front and center for a lot of the marketing and even the main attraction on the side of AT&T Stadium. It was personally one of the matches I was looking forward to the most myself. I recall sending Charlotte a message earlier that day wishing her luck, and she actually responded saying thank you. I won't ever forget that.
The women's revolution was in full gear, partially to the work these three women put in when they were on NXT by having great matches and getting their personalities over. When they came to the main roster in mid-2015, it left me curious to see where all three would be by the upcoming Wrestlemania. I had no idea that it would be in a triple threat match for the newly announced Women's Championship. WWE had decided to finally retire the Divas Championship that didn't coincide with their on-going revolution. Charlotte Flair had defeated Nikki Bella for the Divas Championship innate 2015 and eventually aligned herself with her father full-time, officially turning heel. Becky Lynch faced off against Charlotte multiple times but would come up on the short end due to Ric Flair's inference. Sasha Banks made her big return at the Royal Rumble after a brief hiatus to a ton of fanfare and set her eyes on becoming the champion. After a few controversial finishes to number one contenders matches between Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch, it was concluded that Wrestlemania 32 would be a triple threat match between three of the Four Horsewomen of the women's Revolution.
All three of these women had extravagant entrances looking ready to steal the show, and they did just that. The fans bought into all the near falls, and it really did feel like any one of these women could win. There were a ton of great spots in this match as these three women were trying to usher in a new era of women's wrestling on the biggest show of the year. They wanted to prove that the women's matches on the Wrestlemania card are just as good as any of the men's matches and no longer a great time in the show to hit concessions. Charlotte hit a moonsault on both women that connected perfectly at one point during the match. It was truly a thing of beauty and flawless.
In the end, Charlotte Flair picked up the victory when she was able to make Becky tap out to the Figure Eight while Ric Flair made sure Sasha wasn't able to get back into the ring to break the submission. The last ever Divas Champion walked out the first-ever Women's Champion to this new lineage and era. It was just the beginning of this new era, but one outstanding way to get it started. This match set the tone for years to come when it came to the presentation of women’s wrestling on the main roster.
