Following her arrival on WWE's main roster in July 2015, Becky Lynch became the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion at Backlash 2016 and has held the title a total of three times. Late summer of 2018 marked a turning point for Lynch, as her transition towards a more aggressive character started at SummerSlam when she attacked Charlotte Flair after their match with Carmella, which perceived herself as an unfairly-treated underdog and dubbed herself "The Man", saw a large increase in her popularity and fan support.
In January 2019, she won the Women's Royal Rumble match. On 7 April, at WrestleMania 35, in what was the first time women headlined a WrestleMania event, 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. In a recent interview with Uproxx, the Irish superstar spoke about the possibility of Ronda Rousey showing up and helping Natalya at Summerslam: “Oh no, that never even entered the periphery of my mind.
I suppose you always have to have eyes on the back of your head, especially when you’re me, especially when you’re the champion, especially when you’re The Man, especially when you’ve accomplished all that I have accomplished and continue to accomplish, all that I will accomplish.
Everybody wants to be taking me down a peg or two. So yes, there’s a possibility. If that happens … Look, there’s nothing that I haven’t come back from before. I started off my journey jigging in a freaking bright green spandex outfit and I went down to main event WrestleMania, so I can overcome anything.
I never really thought about that, really, but look, I don’t put anything past Natalya. I’ll tell you, she’s a sneaky little snake. Whatever act she wants to put on front of the world, I think. I think there’s more pressure on her, though, than there is on me."
