In 2018, Becky Lynch transitioned towards a more aggressive character, which started at SummerSlam when she attacked Charlotte Flair, perceiving herself as an unfairly-treated underdog and dubbing herself "The Man", resulting in 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 Sports Illustrated, the Irish superstar discussed the one-year anniversary of being 'The Man': “I’m exactly where I want to be, but there’s always more work to be done.
The world still needs that one-on-match with Ronda Rousey. Whenever she’s ready, I’ll be here, still holding down the fort in WWE. In our locker room, there are two types of people. Those who are bitching about how I got to the top and those who are trying to copy what I did.
But you have to go outside of that. You have to be completely different. Step up. Make a name for yourself. Do it without doing it the way I did. I see what everyone else is doing, and then I try to do the opposite. Be original."
