Becky Lynch defeated Charlotte Flair to earn her way to the WWE Raw Women’s Championship Match against Ronda Rousey at Wrestlemania 35. However, she had some help here.
Becky Lynch Defeats Charlotte Flair at Fastlane
Late during the Fastlane match, Ronda Rousey ran to the ring while Flair had Lynch locked in Figure Eight. She then attacked Lynch, causing a disqualification. Lynch quickly got up and smiled, knowing she already got what she wanted.
Becky Lynch came into the match still dealing with injuries, including one on the knee that forced her to walk to the ring using a crutch. Flair spent most of the match attacking her already uniformed knee.
Becky Lynch-Ronda Rousey Backstory
Becky Lynch was already the number one contender for the title against Ronda Rousey after she won the Battle Royal in January. But after she attacked Triple H and Stephanie McMahon who tried to get her injured leg examined, Becky was stripped off her title shot. The chance was then given to Charlotte. This prompted Lynch to enter the ring twice and attack both Ronda and Flair using her crutches.
It was eventually demanded by Rousey that she wants Lynch in the match, and when she was denied, she left the championship belt in the ring and left. It was announced later by McMahon that suspension on Lynch has been lifted and she would get a title match against Flair for the vacated championship. However, Rousey returned and was handed her belt, prompting Stephanie to arrange a match between Lynch and Flair for the WWE Women’s Raw Championship match.
Ronda Rousey attacked both them women, subsequently locking Lynch in her armbar finisher.
But the former UFC alumni wasn’t done. She talked about how she doesn’t care for kayfabe in her last episode of Ronda on the Road.
“It wasn’t a promo,” she said while describing her promo from Raw. “They gave me other things to say I didn’t f—ing say it. It’s not a f—ing promo. It’s not an act. I’m not going out there and doing their f—ing act anymore. They can say it’s not an act to try and save face with everyone else, but it’s not an act. I’m going out there and I’m doing whatever the hell I want and they can explain it away however the hell they want, but f— ’em, everybody — WWE Universe included.”
“I meant that I’m going to disrespect the sport that they all love so much. ‘Oh don’t break kayfabe Ronda’ — Wrestling’s scripted, it’s made up, it’s not real. None of those bitches can f—n’ touch me. The end,” she said.
