WrestleMania never fails to deliver historic moments, and this year was no exception as the first night of the event unfolded at SoFi Stadium on April 1st. With an abundance of thrilling action and excitement, the show exceeded fans’ expectations, and there were more than a couple huge moments, including one career-defining moment for Rhea Ripley.

Charlotte Flair put her SmackDown Women’s Title on the line against Rhea Ripley at WrestleMania 39. The two threw down during the second hour of the show of shows, but they still gave a main event performance.

Rhea Ripley lost the NXT Women’s Title to Charlotte Flair at WrestleMania a couple of years ago. That match took place in front of zero fans in the WWE Performance Center, but things were much different in SoFi Stadium.

Rhea Ripley and Charlotte Flair had a brutal and stiff contest in SoFi Stadium that got the crowd to a fever pitch. There were many hard shots and near falls throughout the match, especially near the end.

In the end, Rhea Ripley nailed a Rip Tide off the top rope and secured the clean win. This was a hard-fought contest, and well-deserved. The SoFi Stadium crowd also gave Rhea Ripley an incredible pop after her big win.
