The former Raw Women’s Champion recently appeared on Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Session, where she revealed that she wanted to drop her title at Wrestlemania 36, and had even pitched the same. Becky Lynch reasoned that being a babyface was one of the main reasons for wanting to lose the title.

“It’s hard as a babyface to stay champion that long. I had actually pitched to lose at WrestleMania 36 because it is hard to stay champion for that long and as a babyface I think I’m pretty good in the chase,” mentioned Lynch. In fact, she not only retained the title at Wrestlemania 36, Lynch went on to hold the title for a total of 398 days.
