Becky Lynch is widely recognized for her outspoken nature and steadfast principles. She is a vocal advocate for equality and advancement within the wrestling industry. In a candid revelation, Lynch shared her preference for her loss at WrestleMania 38 over her victory at WrestleMania 35.

In a conversation with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Becky Lynch revealed that her favorite match was her bout at WrestleMania 38 where she lost to Bianca Belair.

“I enjoyed WrestleMania 38 where I lost to Bianca more than I enjoyed WrestleMania 35. I think Daniel Bryan said something similar, as well, about enjoying his WrestleMania match against Kofi [at WrestleMania 35] than he did WrestleMania 30. It’s weird like that. Sometimes, what we enjoy in terms of our artistic expression aren’t always the stories that audiences revere the most.”

Lynch further elaborated on her experience, highlighting the differences between being a top babyface and a heel. She noted that as a top babyface, there was more micromanagement, whereas she enjoyed more creative freedom as a heel. She expressed that it was enjoyable to shift the spotlight onto someone else when she lost to Belair at WrestleMania 38.

“When you were a top babyface, you were micromanaged a little more. At WrestleMania 38, I had more freedom creatively. When you’re the villain, you’re making the crowd like someone else. There’s a lot of fun in putting the shine on someone else.”

Lynch also took a moment to reflect on her historic match at WrestleMania 35, acknowledging that she had mixed feelings about it. She admitted that despite the external success and accolades, her internal landscape remained unchanged. She revealed that she was swiftly brought back down to earth the following night on WWE RAW.

“That’s the girlhood-dream-come-true moment. Everyone asks me, ‘How did I feel?’ I felt everything, but I also felt nothing. It’s this weird juxtaposition. I made it, but had anything changed? There were fireworks, but my internal landscape wasn’t any different. I found it one of the harder things to write about in my book. That’s the thing people want to read about it. I understand that–it’s the culmination.”

”Then the next night I’m brought back to earth when I had to do a segment with Lacey Evans on one-hour sleep while Vince was yelling at me in Gorilla. On the flip side, there was the confidence and the cockiness I walked around with leading up to that match at WrestleMania 35. Ultimately, it wasn’t my destination. It was another important stop on my journey.”

Becky Lynch also believes that storytelling in wrestling greater significance than the matches themselves. Nevertheless, we’ll have to see how she will fare at WrestleMania 40 against Rhea Ripley.
