On 7 April, at WrestleMania 35, in what was the first time women headlined a WrestleMania event, Becky Lynch won both the Raw Women’s Championship and SmackDown Women's Championship in a Winner takes all match against Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair, making her a double champion and the only woman to hold both titles simultaneously.
Lynch is now an overall four-time women's champion in WWE. During a long interview with Fair Game and Kristine Leahy, the Irish superstar described her relationship with the late Dusty Rhodes: “Well — I’d probably just cry and say, ‘Thank you Dusty,’ because I don’t know if I’d still have a job if it wasn’t for him.
And like, I know there was many times I was on the brink of being fired, and he always went to bat for me. I think Cody put it that Dusty liked his broken toys. If somebody came in and they were the finished product and they were polished, he didn’t have any work to do.
But if somebody comes in, they’re a little disheveled like I was, and a little bit of an outcast, and a misfit, he just had time for them. And he wanted to help them and see them grow. I really — I came in a shell of who I am now, and he was just so supportive."
Following her arrival on WWE's main roster in July 2015, she became the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion at Backlash 2016 and has held the title a total of three times.
