Women Of Honor Title Change

Becky Lynch Active On Instagram
Becky Lynch has been very outspoken on social media lately whether it be on Facebook or Instagram. She recently posted on Instagram with her thoughts on the opinion that Ronda Rousey is the reason women could be headlining WrestleMania.
Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News
Slow news day today folks. No rumors of anyone jumping to AEW today, so I may be out of a job soon. I digress.
Argue it, agree with it, not like it, but Rousey is the reason why women (whether its Rousey/Lynch, Rousey/Flair, or Rousey/Flair/Lynch) could/will be main eventing WrestleMania. Rousey is a household, crossover name. More people are familiar with who she is then they are with who Becky Lynch is. WrestleMania is the biggest wrestling event on the globe, and WWE does everything they can to make it as mainstream as possible. I wont argue that Lynch is most likely the most over women, if not superstar period, on the roster. She is the complete package, looks, talent, and mic skills. But make no mistake about it, Rousey is the reason for the main event.
If Ambrose/Jax isn’t occurring at a house show anytime soon, you could expect that this match will occur at WrestleMania. Jax is the woman that best makes sense to break the barrier in women taking on men in a WWE ring.
