Becky Lynch got people invested and she knows this was far from a token main event.
"The Man" Becky Lynch's WrestleMania weekend concluded with her holding up both the RAW and SmackDown Live Women's Championships in the main event of WrestleMania 35. Becky Lynch's popularity took flight in the fall of 2018 after she was given a concussion by Nia Jax on Monday Night RAW's Survivor Series go-home show. From that point forward, Becky has been staking her claim to being in the main event of WrestleMania 35.
She achieved her goal and and leading up to the event and coming out it, Lynch made the rounds on the media circuit and she recently spoke with Newshub. Lynch said that she stepped outside the expectations that were set for her and shut down any notion that the women's WrestleMania main event was a token gesture of any kind.
"I stepped outside the expectation and made sure the people wanted this match as their main event because they were invested in the story. If people had thought that it was a token gesture to have women main eventing WrestleMania, then half the people would have left, but that didn't happen. We had them the whole way. The fans were so invested that they wanted to know the outcome, they wanted to know the end of the story, they wanted to share in that moment of history." Becky said.
Becky Lynch pinned Ronda Rousey to secure the win at WrestleMania 35 and it was noted within our Fightful Select service that Rousey is set to have surgery this upcoming Tuesday and that WWE officials are hoping that she returns to the company later this year or in 2020.
