Becky Lynch looks back on her history-making performance at WrestleMania.
In 2019, Lynch competed against Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey in what would be the first-ever all-female main event of WrestleMania. Naturally, the current NXT Champion did experience some nerves before heading into the match.
Speaking with Chris Van Vliet, Lynch discussed the range of emotions experienced ahead of being the marquee match of WWE’s biggest show of the year:
“I think the week before, I was like, oh no, oh, gosh, oh, I like the gravity of what we were about to do like, what it meant, what it meant for the business what it meant, you know, just culturally and the fact that this predominantly male-dominated industry was now for the first time being main evented by three women and that I was going to be the one standing at the end holding two titles. Like am I ready for this? What preparation needs to be done? Did I do it or not? You know, all of these things go through your head.
But then I remember when the day came just rocking up to the building like walking past Undertaker going yeah, this is my WrestleMania. So I do think I really tried to enjoy it as much as I could on the day. Though when it came to like midnight, and we were about to go out, the nerves then hit.”
The Man would become Becky Two Belts when all was said and done as she pinned Rousey to hold the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships simultaneously.
