The Royal Rumble is always considered the start of the Road to WrestleMania and this year the two names that came out on top were Seth Rollins and Becky Lynch.

On Monday Night Raw the following night, the first two matches were immediately revealed — including news that the women might end up main eventing the biggest WWE PPV of 2019.

Universal Championship at WrestleMania 35

When Monday Night Raw started, Seth Rollins came out and talked about how it had been his dream since he was a child to one-day point to the WrestleMania sign and then go main event the show.

That will happen this year after he won the men’s Royal Rumble match on Sunday night, but he said that he had a tough choice — challenge one of his oldest friends, Daniel Bryan, for the world title or go to Suplex City with Brock Lesnar for the Universal title.

Rollins then said that he had to think about it, which brought out Triple H. The Game told Rollins that he had until the end of the night to make his decision.

Then, Brock Lesnar came out and by the end, Lesnar beat the crap out of Rollins and left him lying after multiple F5’s. Nothing was revealed when Raw went off the air.

It was all revealed on Twitter.

So, the first big match at WrestleMania 35 for the men is Brock Lesnar defending his WWE Universal Championship against Seth Rollins.

WWE Raw Women’s Championship at WrestleMania 35

Ronda Rousey came out on Monday Night Raw to talk about her match from the previous night with Sasha Banks and the fans booed her from the start.

Rousey was struggling to get through her promo as the fans hijacked it from the start so Bayley came out and the two had a match for the women’s title, which Rousey won.

After the match ended, Becky Lynch came out to a thunderous ovation.

Lynch said that she had heard about the Baddest Woman on the Planet and then said she dropped that woman in this ring last year. She then pointed out that the Baddest Woman on the Planet never came for revenge.

So, Lynch won the women’s Royal Rumble match and said she is coming for Rousey and she chooses her for WrestleMania 35.

Rousey then dropped some truth bombs, telling Lynch that she could kill her if she wanted to without breaking a sweat but the fans didn’t care and were all behind Lynch the entire time.

Rousey also mentioned the word “main event” in her promo and that has to mean something, as it is rumored that Lynch vs. Rousey will be the first time women have ever worked the main event spot at a WrestleMania.

WrestleMania 35 takes place on April 7.
