WrestleMania 35: Becky Lynch wins first ever all-female main event

Becky Lynch Defeats Ronda Rousey to Win First-Ever Women's Main Event at WWE's WrestleMania 35

Irish wrestler Lynch has defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in WrestleMania’s first ever all women main event – and WWE fans are going wild.

Originally from Limerick, Ireland, she’s now both the Raw and Smackdown champion after beating title holders Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair.

Ahead of winning she tweeted: “Today is the day when you and me change how this business works.”

Fans have been gripped with the huge rivalry between the three wrestlers over the past year.

During its 35-year history Wrestlemania’s main event has seen the likes of The Rock, Hulk Hogan and The Undertaker fight it out for the WWE’s top prize.

Known as The Man, Becky the-32-year-old has helped inspire a generation of female wrestlers.

WWE say this year’s WrestleMania grossed $16.9m (£12.9m) breaking the record at New Jersey’s MetLife stadium for the highest grossing entertainment event ever.

It also set an attendance record at the venue with a sold-out crowd of 82,265, with WWE claiming fans had travelled from 68 countries.
