The journey to this defining match wasn't smooth sailing. Lynch highlighted some challenges they faced: the storyline "maybe not getting the steam that necessarily we wanted" and their notable absence from SummerSlam.

Despite these obstacles, both athletes were fueled with a desire to prove their mettle. "I understand why these decisions are made," Lynch added, emphasizing her drive and ambition, "but really wanted to go out there and prove it." Being granted the steel cage match was not only an opportunity but also the "perfect way to finish it." Both competitors were eager to remind the world of their prowess and dedication to the wrestling craft.

With Trish Stratus, a bona fide legend, making a return to the squared circle, there was a palpable desire to reiterate her legacy. Lynch concluded, "When you have a legend like Trish Stratus come on back, you want to remind the people of why this person was so great.

And I think there’s no doubt after that match of the greatness." For fans and WWE enthusiasts, the Becky Lynch vs. Trish Stratus steel cage encounter will undoubtedly go down as one of the memorable bouts in recent history, epitomizing the spirit and passion of women's wrestling.
