It’s a special moment. Wrestlers are in a unique place when it comes to maintaining characters. All other kinds of actors are able to turn things off once a production wraps and go back to being themselves, but that is certainly not the case with wrestlers (at least in theory). It is rare that you do not see them in character, but that was the case again this week after an important night.
This week’s WWE Crown Jewel event featured a SmackDown Women’s Title match with Becky Lynch successfully defending against Sasha Banks and Bianca Belair. Following the event, Lynch posted a message to Instagram, saying that she would be dropping the trash talk for one night. Lynch thanked her opponents, the fans and the people who came before them to pave the way. She also congratulated Zelina Vega on winning the first Queen’s Crown tournament and to TJ Wilson for helping put the match together. Lynch said that she would be back to her usual self tomorrow, but wanted to say thank you for the night.

This was a pretty awesome match. Check out some of what happened and more of Lynch’s best:
Opinion: You don’t see something like this very often but it is still a rather cool moment. It seems that the match and event as a whole meant something to Lynch and I can’t say I blame her. Getting to go halfway around the world and have one of the better matches of the night in front of one of the bigger crowds in a good while must feel good and Lynch deserves to be proud of it.
What did you think of the match? How long will Lynch hold the title? Let us know in the comments below.
