Becky Lynch: People Thought Me vs. Ronda Rousey Was Evergreen And It Wasn't

Becky Lynch reflects on match with Ronda Rousey that never came to fruition.

Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey seemed to be headed for a showdown at WrestleMania 35 after Lynch won the women's Royal Rumble and Rousey held the WWE Raw Women's Title. Despite the bout being set up, the singles match never happened after Charlotte Flair was added, making it a triple threat match at WrestleMania 35.

"I suppose at the end of the day, I was still able to get the win the main event of WrestleMania, be the first ever woman to win the main event of WrestleMania. Do I think that was the match that everyone was clamouring for? Yes it was. Everyone wanted that singles match, and I think, people thought that moment in time would be evergreen and it wasn't. That's OK too. I think you can't force things when they're not there and I think we see that with what's currently going on with the product," Lynch told Alex McCarthy of Daily Mail.

Lynch and Rousey were scheduled to meet at WWE Survivor Series 2018, but Becky suffered a concussion the week of the event and had to drop out. Charlotte was her replacement.

Lynch continued, comparing her situation with Rousey to Roman Reigns vs. The Rock.

"For years, everyone wanted The Rock vs Roman Reigns, but it's not the time for it right now. Everyone wants Roman vs Cody (Rhodes). Some things have their seasons and we didn't have that season. If she ever comes back again, maybe that season will be right there. Maybe it will be spring time on that story again, but it never got back to that," she said.

Lynch did pin Rousey in the main event of WrestleMania 35 to win the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships.

Lynch will compete inside the Elimination Chamber at WWE Elimination Chamber. Fans can check out the current lineup for the show by clicking here.
