Becky Lynch is set to main event WrestleMania 35 next Sunday as she takes on Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey and new SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair in a three-way match at the ‘Show of Shows’.
Becky recently spoke with CBS New York about the big match, and a possible ‘winner takes all’ stipulation:
“If anyone’s going to do that, that should be me. That will be me. That sounds spectacular. And I would like to be able to defend both of them. Be the first-ever women’s champ champ. I think that sounds pretty freakin’ fantastic.”
‘The Man’ also touched on how it feels to main event a show that also includes big matches such as Triple H vs. Batista and Seth Rollins vs. Brock Lesnar:
“That’s the thing. It’s one thing to main-event if there’s no good matches. This WrestleMania is stacked. Absolutely stacked to the brim, but I have been obsessing about this. Not just this year but since I was 15 years old wanting to come into WrestleMania. So, it really is the culmination of my entire life’s work. Just as soon as I got hot, I was just strategically planning this. How could I make the story so compelling? How could I get people so invested that they have to see this as the main event because they’re just so invested? Even though it feels like this build has been happening for about 12 years now, I think the blow-off at WrestleMania is perfect.”
The possibility of moving over to Raw or staying on SmackDown Live after the blue brand’s move to Fox later this year was also discussed:
“Well, if I’m the champ champ, I’m going to have to be a floater. I love my brand. I’m so proud of that brand. I feel like they always categorize it as the “B show,” but I think we both know it’s the better show. I think it’s got people who [they] don’t necessarily roll out the red carpet for… but it’s people that the fans care most about. And that’s what’s important, that’s what they built on. Not your corporate golden girls and boys. Ever since I went to SmackDown, I want to make that women’s division the one to watch. Any opportunity, when I’ve been in a story, I’ve tried to take that ball and run with it. On stage, the SmackDown Women’s Title is the talk of the industry. It was the hottest title in town. Unfortunately, it’s fallen a little bit, but I would like to bring it back up to where it was.”
I like “the champ champ”. I hope this is a thing that happens.
Ahead of WrestleMania this Sunday, Lynch will actually have to team with Rousey and Flair on tomorrow’s Raw to take on the Riott Squad. Because that makes sense.
