Late summer of 2018 marked a turning point for Becky 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. During a long interview with Fightful, the Irish superstar commented on her fights on social media: “Well, sometimes I do, and then I think ‘ah, if you’re going to make this much of a drama of it, I’m not going to give you attention.
I’m not going to let you step to the man. I’m not going to let you want to be a main event.’ If you can’t hack it, get your freaking jacket! Because that’s the thing. I’m trying to pick fights here and there, and then people just can’t handle it.
And then I’m like, ‘Okay. Alright. Onto the next. Onto the next. Who else wants to make money with me? Who else wants to make money with the champ?'”
