Lynch currently doesn’t hold the title but that makes little difference. The Irish Lasskicker has built her new badass reputation with cutting-edge promos, unmatched social media game, and top class in-ring performances that have seen her steal the spotlight in two of WWE’s best matches of 2018 – that too in the past 3 months (Evolution, TLC).
