Becky Lynch defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair to win the RAW and SmackDown Women’s Titles at WrestleMania 35 but it wasn’t exactly how she had wanted it to end. The Man pinned The Rowdy One to emerge victorious in the historic Winner Take All main event – the controversial finish was actually botched and WWE even fined the referee for ruining the climax.
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, Lynch noted how she wishes she could’ve sent Rowdy on her hiatus by making her submit at the grand event.
“If I could change anything from WrestleMania, I would have tried to freakin’ sink on that arm bar. Make Ronda Rousey tap out for the first time in her life.”
An in-ring return for Rousey seems imminent as the Road To WrestleMania draws nearer. While there’s every possibility of the former UFC megastar making a surprise return at the Royal Rumble, it remains to be seen whether she actually has the need to step inside the ring anymore.
A couple of weeks ago, Sheamus made his much-anticipated in-ring return under his old gimmick and the WWE Universe is high on the multi-time champion despite him destroying a babyface Chad Gable repeatedly.
While speaking to Cultaholic, Sheamus revealed the reason behind WWE’s decision to split The Bar despite their massive success as a tag team.
“Well me and Cesaro have achieved everything there is to do, we’re five-time tag champs. I think The Bar is something where we have cemented our legacies as The Bar, like we can always go back to that and anything we do will be massive, but we’re both on a bit of a singles journey at the moment and there’s still a lot I want to achieve as a singles guy. Obviously the Intercontinental title is the one I still haven’t won, so that’s all I really care about right now.”
While Cesaro is currently enjoying a singles run alongside his buddy Shinsuke Namakmura under Sami Zayn’s leadership, what’s interesting is that both The Swiss Cyborg and The Fella are currently on the same brand.
