Becky Lynch reflects on WrestleMania 35 controversial finish

Becky Lynch, Ronda Rousey, and Charlotte Flair were part of the first ever Women’s WrestleMania main event. Becky won that match, but the finish was controversial. Ronda’s shoulders weren’t completely down but referee counted the pin.

Becky Lynch recently was on Insight with Chris Van Vliet podcast, where she talked about WrestleMania 35 finish. Becky says Ronda didn’t like to tap out.

“Well, so that the creative that was laid out. So she had her driver take her to the wrong spot. And so she showed up, I think, like an hour [late], and we’d been talking through stuff. And TJ, our producer, an amazing producer, TJ Wilson. I’ve known him since 2006. And we were road-tripping across Canada and into Washington and Portland. It’s a wild journey. And anyway, he’s like, maybe you have Ronda in an armbar, she looks like she’s about to tap out.

And so Ronda comes and we tell her the creative and say and then you’re almost about to tap out. [Ronda says] Oh no, my mom wouldn’t look me in the eye or talk to me again if I looked like I was about to tap out. All right, well, she’s probably not going to tap out on the finish. So you know, she never tapped out in her career. So I understood it, respected it and moved on quickly. I was gonna win two titles in the main event of WrestleMania. It was not a big deal whether she tapped out or not. It was I was winning and she was doing the honours.”
