Iconic WWE commentator Jim Ross says WrestleMania main event would be better without Charlotte Flair

According to several sources, Vince McMahon still hasn't decided on what match is going to close out WrestleMania 35 in New Jersey this year.

There are currently two matches being branded as 'main events' on television, one of them being the Universal Championship bout between Brock Lesnar and Seth Rollins.

The other one is the projected Raw Women's Championship match that was originally set to be a singles match between Ronda Rousey and the Royal Rumble winner Becky Lynch.

Rousey against Lynch seemed like a worthy 'Mania main event at the time, but then the bout was changed to have Charlotte Flair face the former UFC champion instead of the Lasskicker.

In storyline Lynch was suspended until five days after WrestleMania, but a report from PW Insider states that she will be on Raw this coming Monday, possibly to be involved in Ric Flair's 70th birthday celebrations.

Whether that's the segment that gets her back into WrestleMania so that it's a Triple Threat match is anyone's guess, but there's a big debate to be had over whether it's best for business that Charlotte is in the picture at all.

WWE Hall of Famer and iconic commentator Jim Ross has his own opinion on the matter; one that doesn't include Flair necessarily.

"People are getting all upset about this triple threat thing and the suspension, and the potential for a triple threat match," Ross stated on his own podcast, per WrestlingInc.

Charlotte Flair has been inserted into the Raw Women's Championship picture, something Jim Ross doesn't agree with

"Hey, I'm like a lot of folks. I'm not sitting here blind. I would rather see Becky Lynch versus Ronda Rousey because that issue became so strong and so personal.

"I'd rather see, finally, those two one-on-one, but that doesn't look like the way it's going and there may be reasons for that you and I aren't aware of.

"We don't know how much longer Ronda's going to be there, if she's going to start a family. It's not exactly something you can mark on your calendar."

The match is expected to become a Triple Threat down the line, with Lynch the most likely to be victorious

So like many others, Ross would rather see Ronda and Becky in a one-on-one instead of the three-way.

For whatever reason though, WWE and Vince McMahon are dead-set on including Flair in proceedings come April 7 at the Metlife Stadium.

There will be a debate well after the match has happened over whether it's the right move, but there will probably be many more twists and turns in this storyline to come as the weeks tick down until 'Mania weekend.
