Call it the upset of the night for many. The trajectory of the angle seemed to pit Lynch as the Rocky Balboa to Shayna Baszler's Clubber Lang: the popular champion gets a little too full of themselves, buying into their own hype, until the snarling bad ass comes along and humbles them in brutal fashion.

Instead of following that exact Rocky III arc, Lynch managed to turn the Kirifuda Clutch into a pinning combo, eking out the win. They could always get back on track by having this win inflate Lynch's ego even further, before Baszler rips her apart in a rematch, but most had WrestleMania tabbed for the title switch.
