Becky Lynch Says She Can’t Main Event WrestleMania By Herself, Encourages Girls To Step Up


After a year at the very top of the WWE, Becky Lynch spoke to IGN to talk about the last year where she has made a lot of history as being the first female to main event WrestleMania, being the first female on the cover of a WWE 2K video game, and more.

Below are some highlights:

Becky Lynch On Finally Getting A Chance To Reflect On The Last Year Of Her Life:

“I’ve been fortunate enough to have done so many firsts, but it’s very hard to sit back and let it all sink in. When we were filming the trailer for [WWE 2K20], it was the first time I sat back and realized what the magnitude was of main eventing WrestleMania this year. And what it had done for me. And it sat in me for a second on the set, because I never usually have time to think about it. Because after WrestleMania there was media. And then there was RAW. And then SmackDown. And then my parents came back to my house. So I never had time to digest any of it. So while shooting for this, it was probably the first time I really thought about it.”

Becky Lynch On The Future:

“It’s always just ‘What’s next?’ How can we keep it going? How do we keep it moving? How can we keep this industry exciting? How can we make people care more? How can we get people more invested? That’s what I’m always thinking about.”

Becky Lynch On Main Eventing WrestleMania Again:

“I would like to see them step out more. I’ve often said that I want everyone to challenge me. I want everyone stepping up to me. I want everyone looking for that top spot. Because that’s what drives me to do better.
“If everyone’s resting on their laurels, and feeling complacent, then we can’t get better. I can’t main event WrestleMania by myself. And I got a taste of it and I don’t want to give up that spot. I want to main event WrestleMania again and again and again.”
