Becky Lynch is already eyeing her next WrestleMania main event opponent

According to Becky Lynch there is only one place for her career to go after headlining WrestleMania 35.

On WWE’s main roster there are just a few full-time wrestlers who have had the opportunity to main event a WrestleMania. Now that Lynch has tasted it once, her next goal is to close out WWE’s biggest show of the year again.

Speaking with Sports Illustrated, Lynch opened up about what drives her career after perhaps already hitting its peak.

“I want to headline WrestleMania without Ronda Rousey. That drives me. I’ve main-evented WrestleMania, now I know what it feels like. For me, anything less than a WrestleMania main event is going to feel like a failure. So I’ve been thinking a lot about who my next opponent will be at WrestleMania 36.”

Lynch also had some interesting thoughts on WWE building up new stars.

“I know there will be a whole class of women coming up chomping at the bit for my spot. I showed them what was possible, so they’re all going to want it. But I’m not ready to give it up yet. I’m just starting my prime. We also have to set the table for the ones who are next. Look at the night after WrestleMania. I had to build someone who has very little experience and who the audience doesn’t know in Lacey Evans. So I have to show people why they want me to kick Lacey’s ass, and hopefully I’m doing a good enough job. But you’re always trying to get yourself and everyone else on that level, so the moments mean even more.”

Only ten months away from WrestleMania 36 in Tampa, Florida, what pairing or trio is the odds on favorite to main event the next Showcase of the Immortals?
