Current WWE RAW and SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Becky Lynch was interviewed by Gorilla Position to talk about her historic WrestleMania 35 victory. Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair and Roda Rousey in the first-ever women’s match to main event a WrestleMania event.
Check out the highlights from Lynch’s interview here:
Which memory she cherishes from the day the most: “Yeah, but look, you can’t beat winning two championships in front of 82,000 people in New York – with your family, with your friends, with everybody there, making history at WrestleMania 35. The first woman to ever – the first and only woman to ever win a championship in the main event of WrestleMania. You can’t beat that. That’s pretty awesome.”
What Vince McMahon said after the historic women’s main event: “He just said he was so proud of us. He was so proud of us. He did (give them a hug). But I said ‘I’m the man now, Vince.’ And he said ‘yup.’ (laughs).”
The match’s controversial finish: “I’m happy I beat her (Ronda Rousey) with a wrestling move after she talked about how – she insulted my business. She insulted my business and I beat her with a wrestling move. That’s all we need to know, is that, the ref counted to three and I became “Becky Two Belts.””
If she’d like to unify the RAW and SmackDown Live Women’s Titles: “Nope. Absolutely not. I want to defend both of them. I don’t see a point of them to be unified because we have two different brands. We have RAW and SmackDown. If we go back to being one brand, eh, maybe. Eh, but maybe not – no, no, I’m “Becky Two Belts,” I need two belts. Also, I just like having, I like there being more things for people to fight for. There’s a lot of talent on that roster, but none of them are holding two belts.”
