Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Becky Lynch opened up about what that moment meant to her and why relinquishing the championship she held for nearly four hundred days to Asuka made the moment even better.

“I wanted to put my heart out there and let people know how much they’ve meant to me,” said Lynch. “I hope I expressed that none of this would have been possible without the fans, the people who lifted me up.”

She continued, “Passing that championship onto Asuka meant a lot. She really, really deserves it. And another element that people missed, because it’s not really advertised, is that she’s a working mom. She’s proven that you can do it all. You can be a badass and go off and have a family, you can come in and still kick more ass, have a YouTube show, and be entertaining as all hell. The fact that she was the person to take that title from me meant a lot to me.”

Lynch would go on to say that she considers her WWE family to be her actual family and promised to always be involved.
