Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley will face off against one another at WrestleMania 39, and while the match’s place on the card has yet to be confirmed, Flair believes it should main-event the show.

Speaking with Alfred Konuwa of Forbes in a recent interview, Flair stated that she thinks her and Ripley’s match for the WWE SmackDown Women’s Championship should headline one of the nights of WrestleMania. She highlighted Ripley’s Royal Rumble win and their combined success as two key factors.

“Well, one, she won the Royal Rumble, so that’s guaranteed a main event spot at WrestleMania,” said Flair. “Not solely relying on that, but I think you have two titans, two athletes who—regardless of their story or who have faced each other prior—are gonna put on a main event match solely on that, knowing that they’re capable of the storytelling. And possibly me retaining or crowning a new SmackDown Women’s Champion. I think when a main title is on the line, it’s always main event worthy.”

Flair would go on to say that she thinks it’s important for the title to feel “prestigious,” but that no matter where they get slotted in, they will make sure to give the audience “something to sink their teeth into.”

“So, to me it’s important for that championship to feel that prestigious, to feel that important,” Flair said. “But again, like you said, there are a lot of stories that are worthy. So we’re just gonna have to make sure between now and WrestleMania that we give the audience something to sink their teeth into, to feel that the stakes are that high.”

If she doesn’t get the chance to main event the night, Flair said she wouldn’t take it as a slight; instead, she will use it as motivation for the future.

“Motivation, you can’t take it as a negative,” said Flair. “It has to just be motivation because at the end of the day no matter where you are on the card, every story is important. Every story means something, means something different to the industry. So no, I won’t take it as a slight, just maybe a little more like ‘all right, we really need to have the best match of the weekend.’ But whoever gets that spot is who the company feels is the best story for it.”

Fans will have to wait and see how WWE lines up the match order for WrestleMania 39 as the show continues to draw near.
