Becky Lynch Pitched To Lose WWE Raw Women's Title At WrestleMania

Becky Lynch's historic Raw Women's Title reign came to an end following Money in the Bank when she relinquished the title following the announcement of her pregnancy. 

But even before she was pregnant, Becky was ready to drop the title to Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36.

Appearing on The Bellas Podcast, Lynch discussed finding out she was pregnant and plans for the title. 

"I knew I wanted to try and have a baby before 35, then I met [Seth Rollins] and was like, 'Perfect, this is my person.' This was always the plan. Originally, I was like, 'I'll wait until I'm done wrestling, then I'll have a family.' Then I started thinking, 'Why do I have to do that? Guys don't have to do that. Hell, I'll just do it whenever the time feels right.' We started trying and I thought it would take a long time, and it didn't, we were super lucky. It happened before I would have expected and I was still champ at the time. I actually thought I was going to lose the title at WrestleMania, which I also pitched, but that was the end of it. Plans change," she said.

Lynch said she became sick a couple of days after WrestleMania and then discussed taking a pregnancy test without Seth knowing, reading the first test wrong, and taking a digital test to get confirmation. You can find her full story on taking the pregnancy test by clicking here.

Becky also noted that she was worried she wouldn't be able to have kids because she had been wrestling or bodybuilding since 15 and didn't know the damage that had done to her body.

When asked about plans for the title after finding out she was pregnant, Lynch said, "I was like, 'is there a way she can beat me real quick?' [Seth] is like, 'No! You're not, no.' 'Yeah, you're right.' We talked a lot and decided, what if there's a tournament for the number one contendership and they don't know they're actually competing for the title. Right as they go to have the last match, I tell them it's for the title, but Money in the Bank was happening at the same time but it was too confusing to merge the two so they decided to do the Money in the Bank ladder match and have that as the title match without them knowing."

Asuka won the Women's Money in the Bank and found out the next night she had actually won the Raw Women's Championship. 

It is unknown if or when Lynch will return to the ring, but her fiance Seth Rollins believes it will happen at some point.
