Becky Lynch: I Want To Headline WrestleMania Without Ronda Rousey, Anything Less Is A Failure

Becky Lynch wants to top WrestleMania 35.

Having headlined WrestleMania 35 against Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey, Becky Lynch knows how it feels to be at the top of the sport. Lynch became the first female in history to close WrestleMania with her hand raised when she defeated Rousey and Flair to win the Raw and SmackDown Women's Titles.

WrestleMania 36 is still ten months away, but Lynch is already thinking about the main event spot in Tampa.

“I want to headline WrestleMania without Ronda Rousey,” said Lynch in an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. “That drives me. I’ve main-evented WrestleMania, now I know what it feels like. For me, anything less than a WrestleMania main event is going to feel like a failure. So I’ve been thinking a lot about who my next opponent will be at WrestleMania 36. WWE is the pinnacle of wrestling, the thing we all grew up watching and loving. I’ve been able to come into this company, break down barriers, and change the way the business is done. I want to continue to do that, and I want to continue to do it in WWE.”

Headlining WrestleMania means Lynch is at the top right now, but she knows that others are coming for her spot.

"I know there will be a whole class of women coming up chomping at the bit for my spot. I showed them what was possible, so they’re all going to want it. But I’m not ready to give it up yet. I’m just starting my prime," said Lynch. "I want to make sure this is the coolest thing on TV. I want to make sure people tune in and care about what we do in the ring. I appreciate the platform I’ve been given. I want to make it bigger and I want to make it better.”

Lynch was on top of the mountain at WrestleMania but slightly fell from that perch at Money in the Bank when she lost the SmackDown Women's Title to Charlotte Flair. Lynch is currently involved in a feud with Lacey Evans on Raw.
