Speaking to Ariel Helwani of BT Sport after the bout, Lynch reflected on the build up to the bout and the emotions that came out in the ring.

"Before we went out, I got very emotional just because of the journey we went through that we were the best of friends and we've been through everything together and when I went out there, I just wanted to rip her head off. I wanted to hurt her as much as I possibly could. That's a lot of emotion because I wanted to maim her and hurt her. That's somebody I used to be so close to. I told you how this has gone so sour and I don't think it really hit me until tonight how sad that all is. We went out there and killed each other and hit each other as hard as we could and we wanted to hurt each other. I told her I'm the better person and she can't accept it so she's going to cry to her dad and cry to everybody else, but there's no denying it now. It started in Brooklyn and it ended in Brooklyn," she said, referencing her "heel turn" at SummerSlam 2018 when she attacked Charlotte.

When asked if things are over between the two, Lynch replied, "Unless she wants to try again, but I don't know how many times I need to prove I'm the better woman. She's strong, so strong, and hits so hard, but I couldn't quit. When I was in the armbar, I said, 'You better break it because I'm not tapping.' It was very hard. There might not be anybody that hits as hard as Charlotte. To overcome everything. It didn't matter how I beat her, I'm just glad I beat her. I would have liked to tap her out or pin her or knock her out, but a win is a win. I'm a little disappointed that I didn't make her tap, knock her head against the canvas, knock her out, that I didn't get the three count. I'm a little disappointed about that. I got the three count, but not the way I wanted."

Charlotte was the first to try and gain an unfair advantage in the match by using the rope for leverage, but the ref spotted her attempt. The ref did not catch Lynch in the act as she pinned Charlotte.

"When you're going in with this much animosity, it's so much stress because you have so much hatred and carrying around that hatred is hard for anybody. Knowing there is people out there that hate you as much as I hate her. It's a lot of hatred and animosity. Carrying that around for a full week. Her dad is coming at me. The whole thing was very stressful and I'm trying to do all these appearances and get these workouts in, but I was very distracted all week," Lynch said when discussing the week leading up to the event and her various media appearances talking about the bout.

Speaking to Helwani earlier in the week, Lynch detailed her dislike towards Charlotte and addressed Ric Flair chiming in with his tweets.

Becky once again reiterated that she isn't sure she and Charlotte can be friends while they are still in the business together.

Finally, Lynch was asked what she said to Charlotte after the match. She replied, "I said 'go cry about it. You can talk your shit, but I'm better than you.' I said a lot of stuff."
