The Fight Club Podcast: 'The Man' Becky Lynch

An absolute massive two weeks are behind us and boy do we have a lot to talk about.

WWE's biggest show of the year is in the books and history was made as Becky Lynch crowned a remarkable night for women in the sports entertainment world.

'The Man' stood victorious in the middle of the ring after defeating Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair for the Raw and Smackdown women's championships.

Fight Club's Brad Lewis was in attendance in New Jersey and on today's episode, he speaks exclusively with the Irish lass on her star-making performance.

Lynch has fought and scratched her way to the top of the business, but despite the amazing scenes last week, it still hasn't sunk in yet.

"My whole entire life I have been working towards this moment," Lynch told Newshub.

"No absolutely not (have you had time to reflect). No, no, no, no - I haven't even had time to sit.

"Monday (local time) I was up early doing media - then straight to Raw. Today (Tuesday local time) I was up early doing more interviews, then the gym and then before I know it I am at Smackdown prepping for that.

"Going home, I will have a little time on my hands to think. I'll have a little Tequila and then yes it might set in but yeah, it could even take a few months.

"Think about it for a sec. WrestleMania 35. I'm in the fricking main event, 82,000 people there and I'm holding both championships at the end of the night.

 "I dunno if even in my absolute wildest dreams I could have had that moment."

But that's not all; Israel Adesanya is the new interim UFC middleweight champion after topping Kelvin Gastelum in one of the greatest five-round fights in MMA history.
