The championship match will be held at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., and stream live on WWE Network. Flair, a seven-time WWE champion, celebrated the historic news in a tweet Monday.

"It's been my... it's been OUR goal to main event #WrestleMania. It was never just talk, it was the hard work of every woman past, present, and future to get us here. We won't let you down. 13 days. #HERStory #Evolution," she wrote.

Lynch, the 2019 Women's Royal Rumble winner and a two-time SmackDown Women's champion, also celebrated on Twitter.

"I ran my mouth, put in the miles, took the bumps and entertained the people till they couldn't deny me any longer. It's an emotional day just knowing I get to smash Ronnie and Car in front of the whole world on the biggest stage possible. To the people: THANK YOU. #IAMTHEMAN," she wrote.

The WWE rebranded its Divas Division as the Women's Division at WrestleMania 32 in 2016. It held its first-ever all-women pay-per-view event, Evolution, in October.
