Becky Lynch: Huge report on her rejecting WrestleMania match

Last updated

WWE Superstar Becky Lynch reportedly turned down the opportunity to face Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 39 in Hollywood.

Steven Muehlhausen of DAZN reported that the former WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion didn’t think the match had enough of a buzz.

“Sources: In regards to no Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey at Mania, people close to Lynch feel the match has lost its luster and should’ve been 1 on 1 at WrestleMania 35 when Ronda was at her apex. #WWE” he claimed.

Becky Lynch vs Ronda Rousey not happening?

The plan had been Lynch vs Rousey for some time, but it appears as though this will no longer be the case, with Rhea Ripley apparently set to take the place of the Irish Superstar.

We’ll have to wait and see how this plays out, but it is certainly interesting that Lynch would outright turn down the chance to compete against the former UFC Champion.

Granted, I agree that the match should’ve taken place at WrestleMania 35 as a one-on-one, but this would’ve been a great full-circle moment for the two women to close off that chapter of their careers.

Still, Rousey versus Ripley would absolutely be a great match for one of the two nights of WrestleMania 39, so no complaints on that end from me!
