9. Charlotte Flair (WrestleMania 35)
Of The Four Horsewomen, Charlotte Flair is arguably the most heavily pushed. Of The Four Horsewomen, Charlotte Flair is arguably the least over.
While Becky Lynch, Sasha Banks and Bayley have all caught fire with the WWE faithful over the years, Flair, while a big star, has never enjoyed the same level of organic connection. Between her inflated title run booking and inconsistent heel and face work, the super-athletic Flair has never completely found her identity the way her peers have.
Heading into WrestleMania 35, audiences were all in on seeing Becky Lynch, the breakout star of 2018, take on Ronda Rousey, one of the biggest legit athlete stars to ever commit to professional wrestling. The feud wrote itself and was set up neatly at the Royal Rumble earlier that year where Lynch won the titular match and Rousey retained her RAW Women's Championship.
For rather scattershot reasons, Flair, who'd wrestled Rousey in late 2018, was added to make a triple threat. Despite her talent, the next generation of North Carolina's favourite wrestling family was met with an audible groan. The dream Lynch vs. Rousey match was going on hold indefinitely it appeared since Rousey was set to take a break after 'Mania.
The build to the match, while colourful, got increasingly silly and ultimately hampered a key historical moment in WrestleMania history with the first ever women's main event. Sometimes, less really is more.
