Becky Lynch, alongside Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair, made history when they main evented WrestleMania 35 last weekend.

Their Winner Takes All triple threat match for the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships was the first-ever women's match to main event The Showcase of Immortals in WWE history.

The clash was won by The Man, but this wasn't the only great match on the WrestleMania 35 card, as Kofi Kingston also defined the odds and defeated Daniel Bryan for the WWE Championship.

At one point though, Lynch felt like The New Day member's feud against Bryan would replace her match in the main event of WrestleMania.

During a recent interview with The National, the Raw and SmackDown Women's Champion how the momentum Kofi was gathering in his feud for the WWE title made her worry that she would lose the main event spot.

She said: "I was worried about it slipping away. Just because the build to the match had been so long that I was worried with Kofi heating up as much as he did, and them referring to several of the matches as the main event.

"Then I was like, 'Oh, but are we the main event? But maybe they ... I mean, they really should, but maybe they won't.' Because you never know in this place, which is a great thing but also a bad thing and a terrifying thing, especially when you're trying to achieve all of your dreams."


Luckily for Lynch, Rousey, and Flair, Vince McMahon didn't execute a last-minute change to the main event spot during WrestleMania and they went on last as planned.

The Man managed to win the match when she pinned Rowdy, capturing the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships in the process.

Unfortunately, the finish to the clash was shrouded in controversy. The official at the time, Rod Zapata, counted a successful pinfall victory for Lynch despite the fact Rousey managed to get her shoulders off the mat during the count.


The right superstar won the match, but they weren't supposed to win the match in that matter. As a result, Zapata was reportedly fined for his mistake.

The Man's first feud as the new Raw and SmackDown Women's Champion looks set to be against Lacey Evans following clashes with The Lady of WWE on both Raw and SmackDown this past week.
