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.
More from @colohue:
Match ended too abruptly, Becky was still meant to win.
"Accident's happen. The ref's continued a count after a kick out. He hasn't delayed between the 2 and 3 like they're supposed to and Becky hasn't let go in time for Ronda to kick out."#WrestleMania

The finish didn't happen as planned. Rousey wasn't happy after, either. Thought the situation made her look bad, apparently.
