The Women Of WWE Will Steal The Show At WrestleMania

After years of not having a spotlight, the women have the chance to steal the show.

The Women Of WWE Will Steal The Show At WrestleMania

Growing up as a wrestling fan, I honestly never cared at all about the women wrestlers in WWE. They were always presented as just eye candy in skimpy clothing. Whenever they wrestled, it was never for more than a few minutes anyway.

As I got older, WWE saw the world change its perception of women and decided to do the same.

One of the women who helped the world change its perception of women was former UFC fighter, Ronda Rousey. She helped bring women's mixed martial arts (MMA) to the mainstream spotlight and garnered a few movie roles as a result.

WWE saw this and realized they had to capitalize on it somehow. This led to the creation of "The Women's Revolution" in 2015, a buzzword WWE created to pat themselves on the back for actually caring about women's wrestling - even though there were already tons of companies that did.

Since 2015, women's wrestling has become a more seriously-regarded sport. It's led to the women of WWE becoming the main event at the company's biggest show of the year, WrestleMania. This means that they will close out the show as the last match.

This gives female wrestlers the huge spotlight that they deserve.

The women who are competing in this three-way main event are Charlotte Flair, daughter of wrestling legend Ric Flair; Becky "The Man" Lynch, the most popular female wrestler on the planet; and Ronda Rousey. The build-up to this match has been a complete mess, but I am confident that they will steal the show.

Three years ago at WrestleMania, Lynch and Flair competed in a different three-way that was so good, I think it could have been the main event of that year's WrestleMania. Ronda wasn't in that match, but with how her matches have been ever since debuting at Wrestlemania last year, I have no doubt she will do great.

This is not the first time women have ever closed out a WWE show.

It has happened a few times. The first occasion was in 2004 and the most notable recent one took place at the WWE Evolution, the first all-women pay-per-view in the company's history. These shows were great, but they don't compare to closing out WrestleMania.

WrestleMania is the basically the Super Bowl of wrestling.

Wrestlemania is such a huge event that other wrestling companies hold events in the area where it is being held in order to attract some WWE fans.

Last year, Wrestlemania took place in New Orleans in front of a sold-out crowd of 78,133. This year, the event is located in New Jersey, and I'm sure it will perform just as well.

The women of WWE have the chance to not only put on a great match for the Wrestlemania crowd, but to also prove that "The Women's Revolution" is more than some corporate buzzword. Maybe if they are successful enough, they'll do for women's wrestling what Ronda Rousey's popularity did for women's MMA.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
