Becky Lynch is a great wrestler, but she’s also a fantastic talker. Finally she was allowed to make a solo promo on Smackdown Live this week, which has made up for a lot of everything that has come up in the run-up to the main event of WrestleMania.
While preparing to face Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair in a winner-takes-all match for both WWE Women’s Championships,
Becky did a little more in an interview with Fanbyte.com, and it was clear that some parts more kayfabe than others. First of all she spoke about the dissolution on the screen of her friendship with Charlotte Flair:
There are people here who grind and scratch and scratch, but she will always get it, always get the big games, the press opportunities, the things I’ve been begging for years, & nbsp; and of course she was fine with me in the background and not all of those things, and when I broke out, when I said that was enough, she had a huge problem with it and changed everything.
I think everyone has that one friend, or that one person, who just lied, just takes everything they get, you leave the scraps behind and expects you to be grateful.
She sounded more sincere, on the other hand, when she talked about realizing her dreams of changing the image of women’s wrestling:
When I came over [to NXT from Ireland], I said I wanted to make women’s wrestling cool. I love this company, I like it so much, I just want people to like it the way I like it, and if I like people, if I can make people feel something about it – that means everything to me. This is the industry that I love more than anything else. This is why I left [home] when I was 15 and slept on couches and lived at $ 30 per show, you know?
She further explains that the use of the nickname The Man, which of course is a reference to Ric Flair, is not meant to scorn women.
[It] makes people’s minds explode. That is hilarious. A few people are being backed up, which is good in itself. [But] it’s not about gender and it’s not about belittling women. I have been a champion of women’s wrestling since I started. I’ve always wanted to change the game, that’s what I’ve been trying to do, and that’s what I’ve done.
