Becky Lynch has been one of the mainstays of WWE television for the past few years now and was also involved in some of the most iconic moments in recent history. She is never afraid to speak up for what she believes in as well. It seems she didn’t want to be champion at one time as well.
On the other hand, Shayna Baszler had a very impactful debut on the main roster as she was immediately engaged with Becky Lynch. Lynch was the RAW Women’s Champion at that time.
The two would eventually clash at WrestleMania 36 for the RAW Women’s Championship. However, despite being booked as a strong competitor, Shayna Baszler would lose to Becky Lynch at the Show of Shows and this simply did not sit well with fans.
While speaking on the Broken Skull Sessions, Becky Lynch talked about her 398-day reign as RAW Women’s Champion. Lynch revealed that she wanted to drop the title at WrestleMania 36 and explained the reason why.
“It is hard as a babyface to stay champion that long. I had actually pitched to lose at WrestleMania 36 because it is simply far too taxing and difficult to stay champion for that long and as a babyface I think I’m pretty good in the chase. We did not go that direction. I ended up holding that for 398 days.
Becky Lynch is set to defend her RAW Women’s Championship against Doudrop at the Royal Rumble on January 29th. It remains to be seen how she will fare in the match.
