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. In a recent interview with TV Insider, the Irish superstar discussed the NXT Women’s division: “There is such a deep well of talent down there in general.
I encourage everyone to step up to the plate. Start making noise. Be polarizing. Get under people’s skin. There are so many women I’d like to face, like Rhea Ripley or Toni Storm, just to name a few. We do have a very talented locker room.
A lot of people I’d like to see get more opportunity. [There’s] a lot of people I’d like to face. Recently, I said this is a declaration of war against Asuka. Sonya Deville is someone else I’d like to face. There is a whole bunch of people. I just think people need to start making some noise”.
