Current WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch is scheduled to defend her title against Natalya at SummerSlam in Toronto, Canada this August.
Speaking at the Marvel Live stream during the San Diego Comic Con, Lynch weighed in on the upcoming match, touching on the fact that Natalya is part of the Hart Family Dynasty who are practically wrestling royalty in Canada.
“Now, the first time I met Natalya—we’re talking 14 years ago—in her home country of Canada. It’s full circle now and I’m gonna beat the bejesus out of Canada’s girl in Canada. How do you feel about that, Canada? You good with that? I hope so because that’s what I’m gonna do.”
This is not the first time in their careers that Lynch and Natalya will be in the ring together. Even before they were in the WWE they had worked together in both Canada and Japan. In the WWE, back in 2016, the two even had a short feud.
During the live stream, Lynch also spoke about what it felt like to be the current face of the WWE. According to Lynch, she’s not resting on her laurels but rather always working to be an even better star.
“I’m constantly striving for perfection,” said Lynch “I can always do better, my match can be better, my gear can be better. Just all of the little details. How can I perfect this, and hoping somewhere along the line I hit excellence. I think people often say, ‘What is next?’ And that’s it, How do we perfect this? How do we reach perfection? It’s impossible, but we’ll try and figure out a way.”
