Becky Lynch Reflects On Missing Out On Huge WrestleMania Match

Becky Lynch

As Becky Lynch prepares for another WrestleMania, she looks back on a match that didn’t happen for her.

The WWE Elimination Chamber is set to take place at Optus Stadium in Perth, Australia in front of 40,000+ fans that have been clamoring for a major event to take place in their city. In the Women’s Elimination Chamber match, Becky Lynch is considered one of the favorites to win along with Bianca Belair while Liv Morgan, Raquel Rodriguez, Tiffany Stratton & Naomi will also be in the match.

Whoever wins that Women’s Elimination Chamber match will go on to challenge the Women’s World Champion at WrestleMania 40. That person certainly could be the current champion Rhea Ripley or it could be her opponent Nia Jax, who beat Lynch clean on Day 1 Raw.

Five years ago, Lynch was the Women’s Royal Rumble winner who appeared to be on a collision course against the Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey. The two women seemed to clash right away and fans wanted to see it. However, WWE decided to throw Charlotte Flair into the match. A few weeks before WrestleMania 35, Flair won the Smackdown Women’s Title yet again and that led to both titles being on the line.

Becky Lynch would go on to win that triple threat match at WrestleMania by pinning Ronda Rousey, which meant Lynch won the first-ever women’s match to headline WrestleMania. That led to Lynch becoming “Becky Two Belts” for a few months.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Lynch pointed out that she still got to make WrestleMania history.

“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.”

Becky Lynch Believes You Can’t Force Things In WWE

As she continued, Lynch commented on how you can’t force things in WWE similar to how the company isn’t forcing a certain match this year.

“Do I think that was the match (with Rousey) 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.”

“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).”

Regarding that rivalry with Rousey that didn’t lead to a singles match, Lynch made it clear that perhaps some day down the road it could happen.

“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.”

Elimination Chamber takes place on Saturday, February 24th at Optus Stadium in Perth, Western Australia, at 5 AM ET/2 AM PT streaming LIVE on Peacock in the United States and WWE Network everywhere else.
