Becky Lynch On Working In An Empty Performance Center



Current RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with ESPN MMA’s Ariel Helwani about what it felt like working without a live crowd.

Lynch is set to face Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36 and has been building the match through taped segments at the WWE Performance Center. According to her, she’s not bothered by working in an empty arena because she’s dealt with small crowds before.

“I came from the independent circuit, so I’m used to wrestling in front of nobody,” said Lynch.

“I remember wrestling somewhere in Killarney—back in Ireland—wrestling in front of seven people, and I almost think that might be worse because you can hear everything they’re saying,” she added.

While Lynch acknowledges that she finds the energy of a live crowd and the challenge of connecting with them invigorating, she just reminds herself that she now has to work to connect with people watching at home.

“It’s a different shift in your brain, you have to use a different part of you because you know at the other end of it there’s millions of people watching, so you have to connect to them differently,” said Lynch.

Lynch was also asked if she was concerned about wrestling even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. Lynch seems to be confident that the precautions that the WWE has taken are enough.

“We set up a very hygienic system and really limited the amount of people that are there,” noted Lynch.

Lynch elaborated by listing the precautions in place, working with a minimal amount of crew, getting their temperature taken, and health checks with doctors upon entering.
