For the first time in WWE history, a women’s main event will headline WrestleMania, as Ronda Rousey (Raw Women’s Champion), Charlotte Flair (SmackDown Women’s Champion), and Becky Lynch will square off in a winner-take-all match for both the Raw and SmackDown Women’s Championship titles.

“I’m locked in, and I’m going to be walking out with two titles,” Lynch said on Taz & The Moose. “What a time to be alive.”

Lynch, 32, said it feels “absolutely amazing” to headline WrestleMania, which will take place this Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

“It feels so right,” she said. “I’ve obsessed about this since I was 15 years old. Being on the pre-show last year, I remember getting a text at WrestleMania saying, ‘Next year it will probably be Charlotte versus Ronda Rousey for the main event of WrestleMania.’ Excuse me? Am I not even in the conversation?”

If she wasn’t then, she certainly is now.

“Absolutely,” Lynch said. “I like to say I run on spite and coffee. OK, you can put in your two golden girls, but no. For the future of this business, we can’t just have the two corporate golden girls in there, especially when Ronda Rousey a few months before that was crying in her kitchen about how tough the schedule was while she was holding a championship. You cannot be holding a championship and crying in your kitchen having worked on a part-time schedule for four months and be talking about how you’re so upset because you can’t make your husband breakfast. No, you do not get dessert – the main event of WrestleMania – when you’re crying in your kitchen about not being able to make breakfast.”

Lynch, who is from Ireland, began training as a professional wrestler in 2002. She has worked extremely hard to get where she is now – which is one reason why she’s become a fan favorite.

“I think they can feel that I love this business and that I’ve worked hard to get to this point,” Lynch said. “I think anybody can relate to that story of somebody that wasn’t necessarily the most gifted, the most athletic, the best-looking – whatever else you want to put – but they’ve worked and they’ve overcome and they tried to believe in themselves more than other people believe in them and they see something better in themselves than what they are positioned to have. I think people can relate to that and they can get behind that.”
