Becky Lynch doesn’t care where her match will fall on the WrestleMania card, because it is going to steal the show. The Raw Women’s Champion is heading into WrestleMania this Saturday putting her title on the line against Bianca Belair.
It is obvious who will be the main event on the second night of WrestleMania 38, but the main event for Saturday seems to be all over the place. We have Kevin Owens that keeps referring to his ‘KO Show’ with Stone Cold Steve Austin as the main event. Then there is the SmackDown Women’s Championship, in which according to last year’s setup, Ronda Rousey as the Royal Rumble winner should be main eventing with Charlotte Flair.
If you ask Big Time Becks if she will be main eventing, she will conclude that it doesn’t make a difference. In a pre-WrestleMania interview with Ariel Helwani for BT Sports, Lynch talks about placement on the card.
“It makes no difference. They can go on later. I don’t think they’re the main event. My match is going to steal the show, my match is going to be better, my story has been better. Everything I’ve done has been better. That’s not even a question. Not one single person, unless you’re an idiot, can say their stuff has been better than mine. That doesn’t bother me. Wherever they go, even if they do go last, I don’t care, my stuff is better and the real main event,” she told Ariel Helwani.
“Story-wise, the only two women to have ever won the main event of WrestleMania, main eventing WrestleMania, going on last, that would be the perfect story. Two losers main eventing WrestleMania, two main event losers, main eventing WrestleMania, sure. One, you feel like it’s a token gesture that they’re going on last because of Ronda’s name. I don’t think anybody thinks that their story is better and that they deserve it.” [h/t – Fightful]
Lynch goes on to discuss Ronda Rousey, which is Charlotte Flair’s opponent. The three women have a history dating back to WrestleMania 35 when they became the first women to main event a WrestleMania. Many fans thought that Rousey’s return would equate to a match with Lynch.
Lynch had the following to say about how Rousey is handling being a new mother, much like herself, and being back in WWE.
“Not as good as me. In terms of juggling it all, anybody who is able to go out there in front of people and you’re able to perform in front of people and you have a baby that is possibly not sleeping and you’re traveling millions of miles, getting out in front of the curtain, that’s juggling it all. Putting one foot in front of the other, that’s juggling it all. Are you excelling at it? That’s a different story. I’m excelling at it.”
Lynch continues, “I don’t think she’s returned to that level. She may have needed a bit more time. Again, if you have a child and you’re coming back after four months, that is an incredible task. An incredible feat, but sometimes you need a bit more time, especially if you haven’t been doing this for years upon years upon years. I don’t know what her headspace is, but I imagine that she’s not watching everything that is wrestling-related on TV, that she’s not marinating about it every second of every day when she’s not with her baby, that she’s not talking to her husband. Nearly every conversation, ‘how do we make this industry better? How do we make ourselves better? How would this match be better?’ If you’re not completely immersed in it…she does have a ring on her doorstep, I’m just saying, possibly a bit more time would have been helpful for her.
I think she loved it as a fan. I do think she loved it as a fan. I’ve said this to Bianca and I’ll say it to Ronnie, ‘You can be a fan or you can be The Man,’ you want to be The Man, especially if you’re in this business. When she came in originally, maybe there was more of a love for it because she came from that fan’s eyes. Now, maybe there is a little bit content. Maybe her priorities have shifted. She knows her baby is more important. Our babies are always going to be more important, of course, but maybe when she has that love is transferred there, as opposed to marrying the two loves.”
