It didn't take long Friday morning for Becky Lynch to spew venom at Ronda Rousey.

Lynch will battle Rousey and Charlotte Flair in the first-ever women's main event at WrestleMania on Sunday at MetLife Stadium. "The Man" stopped by WFAN's "Boomer and Gio" show to preview the history-making match.

"She (Rousey) came in and expected to be handed everything, expected the red-carpet treatment, which she got, but then didn't make any efforts to prove herself," Lynch said. 

A year ago, Lynch seemed like an extreme longshot to headline WrestleMania. But her popularity among fans helped her elbow her way into the main event with Flair, the WWE superstar, and Rousey, the former UFC champion.

"I think the fans recognize passion," Lynch said. "They recognize when somebody cares about this industry that they care about because that's why they're fans. And then Ronda Rousey is out there disrespecting our business. ... All the while, she had previously been crying in her kitchen about how hard it was, crying in her kitchen because she couldn't make her husband breakfast. I haven't made anybody breakfast. I haven't made myself breakfast in freakin' six years. Goodness, Ronda!"

Lynch added that Rousey's attempts to talk trash back to her wasn't like bringing a knife to a gunfight, but more like a spoon.

Lynch was far more respectful of Flair but added that she "can't stand" her former friend.

"Charlotte is great as a wrestler, and she works hard in that, and she's one of my toughest opponents," Lynch said.
