Historic is a term that is overly used by the WWE to sell an event to consumers. In the case of WrestleMania 35, we have a truly historic match that should dominate headlines on Monday morning. The rise of the women’s division over the past several years has led to this weekend.
A decade ago the divas division consisted of models wrestling in their underwear, but has transformed into a women’s division that can compete with the men. The United Arab Emirates recently had its first women’s match, while a new tag team division is thriving.
WrestleMania 35 belongs to the ladies with a main event of Becky Lynch vs. Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey. If you missed Monday Night Raw, there is real heat between these three competitors.
Let’s dig into the card and make some picks.

Bobby Lashley (c) vs. Finn Balor
The IC title shifts between Balor and Lashley faster than an MLB infield facing a left handed pull hitter. These two wrestlers have traded pinfalls for most of 2019 without any real reaction from the crowd.
WrestleMania is long known as a “face” event, meaning the good guy always goes home a winner.
The WWE’s intentions are to set this match up with the heel, Lashley, as the champion and to generate buzz around Balor. With the revelation of the “Demon Finn Balor” making an appearance, this might be the easiest bet on the board.
The uninformed fan might see a ton of facepaint, some crinkled belts for your dockers glued to headgear and a dramatic heart pumping ring introduction. But to a gambler like myself, it all means money: Balor has never lost as the “Demon Finn Balor.”
Considering this is the biggest “face” event on the WWE calendar, this match is an easy payday regardless of the high juice.
THE PICK: Finn Balor -600
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Seth Rollins
Universal Heavyweight Championship
For the sake of full transparency: The Wilson family is a Seth Rollins family. We have bumped into him at the airport, he works out at my local crossfit when WWE rolls through town and we try to win charity auctions when we can.
