RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with Sporting News, and talked about several things including Ronda Rousey, her relationship with Seth Rollins and her upcoming match against Natalya, and her rise to the top in WWE.
Lynch was recently revealed as the co-cover star of WWE 2K20 along with Roman Reigns, and shrieked a little when she found about the news. Lynch starred in a trailer with the likes of Stone Cold, Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, and Paul Heyman, where she shattered the glass ceiling and crashed Hogan’s party!
Lynch talked about rising to the top in WWE, and how her post-match beatdown of Charlotte at last SummerSlam was the turning point in her career. Lynch also talked about how she rose to the top and now always has a target on her back.
Yeah, it’s probably harder, you know because you’re always the hero on the chase to the villain and the victory, right? Everybody wants to support you when you’re climbing but once you get there, everybody kind of wants to knock you down a peg or two … or three or four or five. So, the work gets harder.
When asked about her nemesis Ronda Rousey, Lynch was apathetic. She felt Rousey abandoned the Women’s Division and ran away from The Man. Lynch is still upbeat about the singles match between the two superstars, which could never take place due to various reasons.
Do I miss her? Absolutely not. If she wants to come back, I’ll still be holding onto the championship and happy to face her. I didn’t run. She ran. I still want that singles match. I still want that singles match so whenever she wants to come back and face me, I’ll be right here waiting, carrying this division that she abandoned.
