There’s no doubt that Becky Lynch has risen to become one of WWE’s biggest stars in the past few months. However, has she become one of WWE’s top two biggest stars? “The Irish Lass Kicker” sure believes she is. Speaking to Uproxx recently, Lynch went as far as claiming that she and RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey are the company’s two biggest stars.
It’s for that reason she believes they should main event WrestleMania 35 next year from MetLife Stadium:
“Look, main events of WrestleMania already have “man” written into it, and I am the Man… There [aren’t] two other stars in WWE right now bigger than Becky Lynch and Ronda Rousey, and for that reason and that reason alone, that should be the main event.
“If we look at the trajectory of WrestleMania and WWE and who gets the main event spot, it’s always the top draw. And it’s always the people that are bringing the most people into the stands. Well, that’s the Man.”
Lynch rose to prominence in WWE after turning heel on Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam. Flair had injected herself into a SDL Women’s Title match she worked hard to earn, and wound up winning the match. Lynch attacked Flair, before going on to capture the title herself at the Hell In A Cell (HIAC) pay-per-view (PPV).
In that time Lynch has become a massive fan-favorite amongst WWE fans, and is preparing to make history tomorrow night. She’ll defend her title in the first-ever Women’s Tables Ladders and Chairs (TLC) match against Flair and Asuka. The PPV goes down from the SAP Center in San Jose, California.
What do you make of Lynch’s claim that she and Rousey are WWE’s biggest stars?
