WWE Superstar Becky Lynch recently spoke with The Press Enterprise to promote the upcoming “Smackdown” taping in Ontario, California next Tuesday, February 16. In the interview, the “Lass Kicker” discusses a variety of topics, including her love for the business, doing a promo with Ric Flair, the Divas headlining WrestleMania and more.
On Her Love For Wrestling:
“At the time, I was failing P.E.,” she said. “Who fails P.E.? So I went down and to say I was awful was an understatement. But, I fell in love with it. It wasn’t until I was 17 in a match where I tagged with my brother. I had the most fun ever and I came back and said ‘this is what I have to do. This is what I’m going to do.’”
On Her Promo With Ric Flair on the January 18th Episode of “Monday Night Raw:”
“It was surreal. I’m jaw jacking with Ric Flair! The entire time I’ve been here. Dusty Rhodes was my mentor and Triple H is your boss. It’s everything you’ve grown up watching and now you’re jaw jacking with Ric Flair. I can’t even explain it other than saying it’s surreal and amazing. I wish kid me was around, like I could bring little Becky around to show her all of this. I’d love to see how she’d react.”
On the Divas Headlining WrestleMania:
“I think so,” she said. “I don’t see a single reason why not. What Bayley and Sasha did, they weren’t the main event because of a movement or because it was cool. It was because they’re that good. No one else could follow them. That’s what we’re moving to. It’s pure equality as long as you’re that good and you’re that much of a draw, I think you have every right to be the main event,” she said. “Look at Ronda Rousey and I guess now Holly Holm. It’s a new time and it’s great to be part of it.”
