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 recent interview with Times Now News.com, the Irish superstar discussed her journey to headline WrestleMania: “There aren’t many women in this industry.
It is a fast-paced industry and that inspires me. Going in front of so many people who are constantly watching you, it’s like testing yourself physically as well as mentally. When you are in a ring and even if you feel dead, you still must give it your best and be better than everyone else.
Jim Ross signed me at the beginning of my journey. Seth Rollins believed in me and helped me when no one else did, during my initial period of struggle. I was called one of the most irrelevant women when I came into this industry and that really served me.
I wanted to win and prove everyone wrong. Separating myself from people has also really benefited me. I was looked at as an afterthought and not given what I deserve. I saw other people who didn’t put in any hard work and just batted their eyelashes in order to get everything. I took it personally and it motivated me to take over."
