Current WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has taken to calling herself “The Man”, and in a recent interview with PinkNews, she explains how her new catchphrase came about.

“I am the top dog,” Lynch explained. “Gender be damned. The Man is not about gender. It’s a state of mind, it’s about being at the top.”


“It’s walking into the locker room – the male locker room – its like, ‘Sorry, lads, none of you are cutting the mustard. I’m the man now. I’m taking over the ship now,” she adds.

It has to be noted that, Lynch’s new catch phrase is actually a spin on the time honored quote from Ric Flair, “To be The Man, you have to beat The Man”.

As Lynch points out, her recent win record makes a very good case for her claim that she’s the “top dog” among the women and the men.

“I’m the most victorious of all Superstars, both on Raw and SmackDown, in 2018. I’ve won the most matches. Therefore, I am The Man of not just the women’s locker room, but also the men’s locker room,” she says.

During the interview, Lynch also called for more inclusion of LGBT+ in pro wrestling stating that: “It doesn’t matter your gender, your race, your sexuality, whatever it is, that we’re all equal. That’s what I want to get over more than anything. We are all 100 percent equal, and it’s what you do with it that counts.”

Lynch started calling herself the Man after beating Charlotte Flair during the first ever Last Woman Standing Match during WWE Evolution. So aside from a justified boast about her prowess, Lynch could also be taking a little dig against her rival.

Over at Twitter, she has also started a little feud with another WWE Superstar who has at times claimed to be “The Man”, current Intercontinental Champion Seth Rollins.
