WWE star Becky Lynch reveals fears she thought WrestleMania main event dream was over when Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins become 'hot with crowd'

BECKY Lynch has revealed fears that she would lose her main event spot at last week’s WrestleMania – because Kofi Kingston and Seth Rollins had become so popular with fans.

Lynch’s three-way feud with Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair was tipped to headline WWE’s super-show months before it was officially announced.

Becky’s journey to Mania – and ultimately winning both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championships – began all the way back at SummerSlam when she turned on Charlotte Flair.

But the storylines that saw Kofi Kingston trying to become WWE Champion after 11 long years in WWE – a movement dubbed “Kofi Mania” – and Seth Rollins' attempts to slay “The Beast” Brock Lesnar threatened to overshadow the women.

Both Kofi and Seth would also go on to win their title matches in what was an unprecedented feel-good WrestleMania show.

Lynch said: “Ever since I broke out at SummerSlam I thought, ‘Ah, I’ll probably main event WrestleMania. The timing’s perfect, you can’t get hotter than this.’

“For most of the journey, most of the build, I was pretty confident we would main event.

“Then there were a few months where Kofi was so hot, and Seth and Brock were hot, and I was like, ‘Hmmm, our storyline started so long ago… maybe one of the other guys are going to take this main event spot.”

But Lynch also says it pushed her on to make her storyline and character the absolute must-see attraction heading into WWE’s biggest show of the year.

Lynch said: “Looking back at it, I probably didn’t need to be nervous.

"But I think that stress is good because it forces you to think more, work harder, never take anything for granted.

“I wanted to work toward everything and make sure the people cared so much about this storyline that they needed to see it as the main event.”
