Becky Lynch was forced to drop the Raw Women’s Championship to Asuka a few weeks ago when it was revealed publicly that she was expecting her first child with fiance Seth Rollins.

The former Women’s Champion recently spoke to The Bella Twins on their podcast about the circumstances surrounding her pregnancy announcement and how she wanted to drop the Championship to Shayna at WrestleMania.

“Originally I was like, ok, well … I’ll wait till I’m done wrestling and then I’ll have a family. But then I started thinking, but wait, why do I have to do that? Guys don’t have to do that. Hell, I’ll just do it whenever the time feels right! So we started trying, and I just thought it would take a long time. And it didn’t. We were super lucky.”

“It happened before I would’ve expected and I was still the champ at the time. I actually thought that I was going to lose the title at WrestleMania, which I also pitched … but you know, plans change!”

Lynch recalled that she began feeling sick when she returned from WrestleMania tapings and decided to take a home pregnancy test.

Lynch was Women’s Champion when she found out and talked about how she could lose the title in a quick match against Asuka, but Rollins was against her wrestling while pregnant.

“I was like, ‘is there a way she can beat me real quick?’ [Seth] is like, ‘No! You’re not, no.’ ‘Yeah, you’re right.’ We talked a lot and decided, what if there’s a tournament for the number one contendership and they don’t know they’re actually competing for the title.”

“Right as they go to have the last match, I tell them it’s for the title, but Money in the Bank was happening at the same time but it was too confusing to merge the two so they decided to do the Money in the Bank ladder match and have that as the title match without them knowing.”
