She might be on to something. We are on the way to Survivor Series and this time around will be similar to the previous years. This year’s show will be focused on the idea of a battle for brand supremacy between Monday Night Raw and SmackDown, which might not be lighting the world on fire at the moment. It turns out that one prominent WWE star is not exactly thrilled with the idea either.
During a new interview with Vincente Beltran, Raw Women’s Champion Becky Lynch said that she felt the idea of battling for brand supremacy is “a little outdated”. Lynch went on to say that all WWE wrestlers are competitors and therefore want to compete for some kind of a prize. There is no word on WWE changing the concept, though Lynch is not alone with this line of thinking. SmackDown’s Xavier Woods also suggested that the winning team’s brand received the final five spots in the Royal Rumble match.
It was an interesting interview. Check out what Lynch and Woods had to say, plus what brand supremacy can look like:
Opinion: I certainly can’t say I disagree, as the show feels less and less important every single year. It would be nice to have something on the line, just for the sake of making the show feel like it matters. Hopefully this is the kind of thing that WWE takes under advisement, but I can’t imagine they actually will, at least not this year. Maybe next year, but that might be getting my hopes up too much.
