It was an emotional moment between Becky Lynch and Asuka

Lynch, who is engaged to Seth Rollins, had the longest Raw Women’s Championship reign in history at 398 days after beating Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35 in 2019.

She successfully defended the title against competitors such as Sasha Banks, Lacey Evans, Natalya and most recently Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36.

Asuka, who has been one of WWE’s most consistent performers during the coronavirus pandemic, won Sunday’s Money in the Bank ladder match for a shot at a women’s title.

However, Lynch revealed to Asuka that she had in fact won the Raw Women’s Championship instead, while eventually saying: “You go and be a warrior, because I’m going to go be a mother.”

Lynch tweeted her thanks to the WWE Universe.

She said: “I have no idea what happens from here, but I do know that you’ve made all my dreams come true.

“I entered the PC [Performance Centre] in 2013 not knowing anyone, I’ll leave that same building tonight with my new family. Thank you all so much.”

Lynch’s former rival in WWE and real-life friend Charlotte Flair tweeted: “Congratulations Bex. Beyond happy for the both of you!”
