    Takers last main event was in 2009? Crazy

  2. Con Cara says:

    Don’t really like that the female list is counting de-facto main events. Just because it was the last match doesn’t really make it the main event. For instance, I doubt anyone other than this list’s creator thinks that Melina Vs. Jillian main-evented Raw.

  3. The only two female main events on Raw were:

    Lita vs Stephanie McMahon
    Lita vs Trish Stratus
