Becky Lynch speaks about equality in WWE

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. Lynch again retained the title over Evans at Stomping Grounds and on the same night helped Universal Champion and real-life boyfriend Seth Rollins retain his title over Baron Corbin after Corbin chose Evans as the guest referee for his match.

Lynch teamed up with Rollins and defeated Corbin and Evans at Extreme Rules in a winner-takes-all mixed tag-team match. Lynch successfully defended her title at SummerSlam against Natalya in a submission match. At Clash of Champions Lynch defended her title against Sasha Banks where the referee got hit by a chair during the match by Lynch causing a disqulification loss but title retention for Lynch.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, the Irish superstar spoke about equality in WWE: “Give us the opportunity — give everyone equal opportunity — and let’s see what happens there. I’m not asking for a free ride or anything like that.

It’s about earning your spot and I think that people don’t need to be held down because of gender, race, where they come from. It’s all about proving your worth as a human and being allowed to be treated as such”.
