Becky Lynch: Charlotte Flair vs. Ronda Rousey Closing WrestleMania Is A ‘Token Gesture,’ Not Because They Deserve It

On April 2, WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch will compete in a high-profile WrestleMania match for the first time since 2020. “The Man” missed last year’s event because she was out on maternity leave, but she’ll defend her title against Bianca Belair at “The Showcase of the Immortals” this year.

Lynch is widely viewed as one of WWE’s top stars, but her title match isn’t expected to be the main event. Instead, Royal Rumble winner Ronda Rousey will likely face SmackDown Women’s Charlotte Flair in the last match of the night.

In an interview with Ariel Helwani of BT Sport, Lynch was asked what she thought about the 0rder of the title matches, and she stated that wherever her bout is, it will steal the show because everything about it has been better than its counterpart. She went on to share her belief that “unless you’re an idiot”, nobody can say that Flair vs. Rousey has been a better story than her feud with Belair.

“Makes no difference,” said Belair. “They can go on later. Again I don’t think they’re the main event. But look, my match is gonna steal the show. My match is gonna be better. My story has been better. Everything that I’ve done has been better. That’s not even a question. Nobody, not one single person, unless you’re an idiot, can say that their stuff has been better than mine. And so yeah that doesn’t bother me. Wherever they go, even if they do go last, I don’t care, my stuff is better. My stuff is the real main event.”

When asked if she’d like to main event the show, “Big Time Becks” argued that her match with Belair would be more fitting of the honor, given that it would be a historic clash between the two women who won the previous WrestleMania main events, whereas Flair and Rousey are both “WrestleMania losers.”

“If we’re the main event, sure,” said Lynch. “I think in terms of story-wise, the only two women to have ever won a main event of WrestleMania main-eventing WrestleMania, going on last, I think that would be the perfect story. Two losers main-eventing WrestleMania, two main-event losers, main-eventing WrestleMania, sure. But then I think 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.”

Either way, fans can look forward to seeing both women’s championship matches on WrestleMania Saturday.
