History Made As Ireland's Becky Lynch Wins Main Event At WrestleMania

Ireland's Becky Lynch won the main event at WrestleMania 35 on Sunday night.

The Dubliner defeated Ronda Rousey and Charlotte in a triple threat match in front of 82,265 at the MetLife Stadium in New Jersey. It was the first time ever that a women's match had headlined WrestleMania.

The victory made Lynch the first unified WWE women's champion.

Lynch won the match when she rolled an attempted Piper's Pit move from Rousey into a pin.

The finish was somewhat controversial as Rousey's shoulders appeared to lift from the canvas as the referee made the count.

There have since emerged reports of a botched ending to the fight. It's said that Lynch was supposed to win, just not in the way that she did.

Fellow wrestlers have paid tribute to Lynch.
