Just like Becky Lynch went to UFC 209 to support her boyfriend, Luke Sanders attended WrestleMania 33 to support his girlfriend.
A few hours before the show, he wrote on Instagram, “I hit the girlfriend lottery😻 you make everything better, being withchu is my favorite! Handle bidness tonight ma wonder women💯 #champchamp #wrestlemania33 #lasskicker #badlass @beckylynchwwe @wwe.”
At the annual pay-per-view event, which was held at Camping World Stadium on April 2, 2017, in Orlando, Florida, Lynch competed in a Six-Pack Challenge for the SmackDown Women’s Championship – where the first competitor to gain a pinfall or submission got declared the victor. “The Irish Lass Kicker” came up short in the match as Naomi beat her, Natalya, Carmella, Mickie James and SmackDown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss to reclaim the title.
Prior to the show, Lynch said that Sanders was teaching her some moves.
She wrote on Twitter, “@coolhandmma spent the afternoon teaching me some saweet kicks. He’s the coolest. Lasskickings galore for #Wrestlemania.”
Two days before WrestleMania 33, Sanders attended the WWE Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony with Lynch. They both wore white and appeared on camera together during the WWE Network’s broadcast of the event.
