À WWE WrestleMania 35, Becky Lynch made history when she defeated Charlotte Flair and Rhea Ripley in an unprecedented main event to win the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championships.
This triumphant moment was followed by a title reign that saw several ups and downs. From the rivalry with Sasha Banks to the clash with Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin alongside Seth Rollins, this chapter of Lynch’s career has been mixed to say the least.
In a recent appearance on Out of Character with Ryan Satin, “The Man” looked back on her run as the WWE RAW Women’s Champion and described some of the challenges she faced. When asked, she noted that these obstacles made her more difficult to appreciate than her unforgettable victory at WrestleMania.
“It was a little harder because, well, I went from the main event of WrestleMania to the next night, I had to do a Lacey star. [Evans], and so I was put in charge of this, ”Lynch said. “And that, you know, the public didn’t know about her. And so it was hard because I went from fighting from the bottom to the top to be the best star, then all of a sudden I’m the best star, and now I have to bring someone else with me . And the public don’t know her, and she was, you know, she hasn’t wrestled for a very long time. And so it was hard to do that.
“And then find the right opponents in this mix to go there. And then we went from Lacey to Sasha, and Sasha is so established and she’s awesome, and audiences love her, love hate her, they still loved me, and so I had a few good matches with her. But then it started in a weird team race with me and Charlotte [Flair] because they were trying to book us both upstairs, but we object… there was some quirk in there.
Once Lynch brought up the “oddity” of her team run with Charlotte Flair, she stressed the importance of realizing that some storylines won’t “work,” but performers should always do whatever it takes to make them. make the best story possible.
“Not all the stories you have are going to be home runs, I guess, that’s my point of view,” Lynch said. “There will be some who will not touch. But the point is, you and everyone else are trying to get a home run. You never go, ‘Let me phone this story. Who is this person ? Don’t care about her, the audience don’t care about her, I don’t care about her.
“No, you have to find a reason why you care for them, for the audience to care for them and to try to make it the best story you can give, even if it won’t be the best story.” that you have ever experienced. never had. You want every story to be the best you’ve ever had.
Finally, looking back on her entire reign over the Red Mark, Lynch said that she was at the very least happy with some parts, such as her feuds with Banks and Asuka.
“I don’t know if I’m ever happy with anything, really,” Lynch said. “I think I’m still looking and I’m like ‘Ah that could have been better, that could have been better.’ But I’m happy with the points of it. I’m going, oh Sasha’s stuff was great. Oh, Asuka’s stuff was great. Oh, the run up to her was great.
