In the annals of WWE history, 2019 stands as a watershed moment, particularly for women in professional wrestling. It marked the year when Becky Lynch, a formidable force both in and out of the ring, etched her name in the record books.
She participated in the groundbreaking first-ever all-female main event at WrestleMania 35, competing against Charlotte Flair and Ronda Rousey. The significance of this milestone was not lost on Lynch. In an exclusive interview with Chris Van Vliet, Lynch shared her inner thoughts in the lead-up to the colossal WrestleMania showdown.
"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 for the business, what it meant culturally," she recalled. The event marked a pivotal shift in a predominantly male-dominated industry, and Lynch was acutely aware of her role as a trailblazer.
The pressure to perform at the grandest stage of them all was palpable. She questioned herself, pondering if she was truly ready for this historic moment. However, as the day of WrestleMania dawned, Lynch embraced the occasion.
Walking past iconic figures like The Undertaker, she knew that this was her WrestleMania, her moment to shine. She sought to savor every second of the experience, relishing the journey that had brought her to this pinnacle.
Yet, as midnight approached and the main event drew nearer, the butterflies in her stomach began to flutter.
Becky's Historic Dual Championship Win
When the dust settled and the final bell tolled, Lynch emerged victorious, pinning Ronda Rousey to clinch both the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships.
She became "Becky Two Belts," etching her name in history as the embodiment of women's wrestling excellence. Fast forward to September 2023, and Becky Lynch's remarkable journey reached another milestone. She achieved what had long eluded her—a victory over Tiffany Stratton to capture the coveted NXT Women's Championship.
In a separate segment of the interview, Lynch described this achievement as "the one that got away," signifying the importance of this championship in her storied WWE career. Becky Lynch's remarkable legacy continues to grow, serving as an inspiration to aspiring female wrestlers and a testament to the ever-evolving landscape of women's wrestling within WWE.
As she basks in the glory of her latest triumph, fans can't help but wonder what incredible feats she will accomplish next on her journey through the world of professional wrestling.
