Bengaluru, April 2: WWE Monday (April 1) announced that the first-ever women's main event of Wrestlemania featuring Ronda Rousey (Raw Women's Champion) vs. Charlotte Flair (Smackdown Women's Champion) vs. Becky Lynch will now be a "Winner Takes All" Match for both the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championship titles.

After weeks of speculation about a potential twist awaited on Raw, it was confirmed by none other than Stephanie McMahon that both titles will be on the line this this Sunday, April 7 at MetLife Stadium.

The stipulation being added was rather inevitable after Charlotte defeated Asuka to win the Smackdown women's title last week. It seems like the reports of WWE looking to trim the initially planned card may also be true now.

Charlotte Flair is now an eight-time Champion after winning the SmackDown Women's Championship this past Tuesday vs. Asuka. Flair is a former Division 1 volleyball player, philanthropist, author, and is the daughter of two-time WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair.

Ronda Rousey is the current Raw Women's Champion, Olympic medalist, the first female UFC Champion, and the first woman to be inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame. She is also an actress and New York Times bestselling author.

Becky Lynch is the 2019 Women's Royal Rumble winner, a two-time SmackDown Women's Champion and was named Wrestler of the Year by both Sports Illustrated and CBS Sports in 2018. She was also the first woman ever to top ESPN's WWE Power Rankings.

• WWE Universal Championship Match: Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins (2019 Royal Rumble winner)

• WWE Championship Match: Daniel Bryan (c) vs. Kofi Kingston
