Talking with CBS New York, Becky Lynch expanded on her upcoming role at WWE’s biggest show of the year. “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.” Becky also expanded about the possibility of holding both the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Championships after the night is over. “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.”

In the lead up to her Main Event match, Becky shared that she discovered through text messages that she was almost fired from the company early in her tenure. While some said that they didn’t think she’d get an opportunity to headline “in a million years”, others had a story to tell.

“I got a couple of text messages this week from people here at work and NXT or worked in the office side of things. (They said) I don’t know if you knew this, but there are some people that wanted to fire you when you were in NXT. Congratulations on the main event. I was like, ‘Well, no, I knew that.'”

Becky Lynch will compete against Ronda Rousey and current SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair for the RAW Women’s Championship in a Triple Threat match at WrestleMania 35.
