Becky Lynch Talks About Her Biggest Frustration
Becky Lynch will be facing Asuka to reclaim the SmackDown Women’s Championship this Sunday at Royal Rumble.
During a recent interview with azcentral, The Man talked about being “overrated” in WWE. It’s no secret that Becky was the hottest star of 2018 in the pro wrestling business – CBS Sports Wrestler Of The Year awardee and as a woman, she raised the bar for both genders in the industry with her newfound heel persona.
What’s the biggest frustration with what you do?
“I keep hearing now that I’m overrated. I don’t think I even know what that really means. Does it mean that I’m not what you think I should be? I’m working my (rear) off and delivering what I say and get[ting] a reaction every single time. What does that mean? Of course, it’s only from a few loud people, and that’s naturally gonna happen as you rise up the ranks.”
What can we expect at the Royal Rumble?
“The first thing that goes into my mind is how I can plan some hijinks. How can I take the show? I’m gonna take back that championship and make it the most talked about title in all of the WWE and the world.”
Sasha Banks Reveals How She Came To Know About Facing Ronda Rousey
RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey will defend her title against Sasha Banks on January 27 at Royal Rumble.
While speaking to WWE Hall of Famer Edge and Christian on E&C’s Pod of Awesomeness, The Boss revealed exactly when she found out that she would be facing The Rowdy One at Chase Field.
“It’s kind of crazy. It was really unexpected too. When I found out I was gonna be facing her. It was just out of the blue. I found out the day before RAW and I was just like, ‘Huh?’”
“Of course, that’s how WWE always works. You never know what they’re gonna be doing. They tell you one thing and the next thing you know something’s different, but it’s honestly really cool because last year having the first ever Women’s Royal Rumble match, I got to open that match, and be part of that match for 54 minutes. Now going into this year’s Royal Rumble and actually being a part of the title picture, it’s kind of crazy how full circle life is.”
Ronda Rousey Wants To Prove She Can Wrestle
Ronda Rousey has had a great run so far since her WWE in-ring debut at WrestleMania 34. The Rowdy One captured the RAW Women’s Championship at SummerSlam and made history by becoming the only woman to have held both WWE and UFC titles. Despite her undefeated streak and accomplishments in the company, many fans are of the opinion that Rousey can’t wrestle.
During a recent Q&A, Ronda talked about her dream of participating in the Royal Rumble match and winning it to shut up her critics.
“Well, actually one of my dreams in WWE when I first came here was like — I don’t know, I guess I thought I was never able to prove to anyone that I actually knew how to wrestle in a way that wasn’t just memorized from beginning to end.”
“But I was like if I’m the first one out in the Rumble and I go all the way to the end and win it then nobody can say that I don’t know how to wrestle.”
“Not even to win, just to go from beginning to end the whole time. I feel like that is the peak like I can really f*cking do this.”
WWE Doesn’t Want The Word Out
A lot of WWE Superstars who have their contracts coming up are reportedly interested in All Elite Wrestling. While AEW plans to go hard on WWE’s talent pool by offering them about the same kind of contracts, WWE doesn’t want the word out that “lots of people want to leave.”
On Wrestling Observer Radio, Dave Meltzer revealed:
“It’s weird because WWE is pushing a lot of guys, a few guys, Andrade and [The Revival] to a degree because they don’t want to lose them. They don’t want people unhappy, they don’t want people to leave. They don’t want the word out that lots of people want to leave. Especially they don’t want the word out that people want to go to AEW.”
