Becky Lynch on Having No Time to “Digest” Historic WrestleMania Win, Getting Personal w/ Ronda Rousey

Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently sat down with FAIR GAME with Kristine Leahy to discuss her historic WrestleMania main event again UFC Hall of Famer Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair.

The Man explains the origin of her unique nickname, being one of the many students of the late, great “American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, and a whole bunch more. Lynch also described the insanity of WrestleMania weekend and stated that, unfortunately, she didn’t exactly have time to sit and savor her career-defining victory on the Grandest Stage of Them All.

“So WrestleMania was on April 7th. My match was on April 8th. The show went about 7 hours long, maybe a bit over, and so by the time I got out – my hair was all crazy, having done interviews and everything like that – I think it was about 2:30am. I got back to the hotel at 3:30, and then was up at 5am for more media and stuff like that. I didn’t have time to sit and digest. It was media in the morning, and then right off to Raw that night to get back to work.”

On the story with Ronda Rousey heading into the WrestleMania triple threat match, The Man stated that it was her personal goal to legitimize her fight as the true “main event” of the biggest show of the year – and the best way to do that was to make things personal between her and the then-undefeated champion.

“The beauty of that story is that it was real, and that people felt it. That was why people got so invested. What I wanted was people to want to see this as the main event. The way to make people want to see you as the main event is to make it personal. There was no way in hell I was allowing this to just be a corporate main event. It was the first time ever that women were going to main event, but it had to be because the people demanded it, and not because this was a good publicity move. It was what the people wanted, and people stayed to watch the main event even though it ended up being a 7-hour long show. People cared about that story because it was personal.”
