WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has spoken about and analysed her current run as a heel following her return at SummerSlam.
Lynch made a surprise return to replace the absent Sasha Banks, and then even more surprisingly beat Bianca Belair to win the title in just 20 seconds.
This was met with a lot of criticism, but it was all a catalyst for Lynch to turn heel and get the fans more behind Belair.
On the latest edition of Out Of Character, Becky Lynch spoke about how her current run has gone so far, saying:
“It’s so hard, especially when you’ve been a babyface for so long and the crowd likes you and are endeared to you and you’ve gone away and they’ve seen some of the stuff I went through and the year. I’m a new mom and I’m coming back and they are excited and there’s this girl who has been doing awesome (Belair) and it’s a great rivalry and we like both of these guys. How do we make them not like one of them? She’s a company girl, let’s do this quick.
“I know a lot of people were upset, ‘Oh, if they were going to do this, they should’ve had a long match’. Well, if we had a long match and I beat her, then I just beat her. That’s no good for her. If she’s robbed and we take something from her and she doesn’t expect it, then we want to see her succeed. We don’t want the person with (the title) to have it anymore, we want (the other person) to succeed.
“I think we’re doing just fine. ‘I don’t like Becky as a heel, she’s so annoying’. What? Okay. I think that’s the point bro. ‘Why would they do this to Bianca, I want her to win’. Yeah, good. This is what we want. I think we’re doing a good job with it.
“I’m having fun with it. It’s trial and error, see what works, see what doesn’t. The last time, I was the underdog overcoming the top guy and people wanted to cheer me so there was no point in trying to get them to boo me. Now, I’m the top guy talking down to everybody and I’ve reached the mountain top. People want to see me be overturned, eventually.”
Lynch will defend the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Belair and Sasha Banks in a three-way at Crown Jewel in Saudi Arabia on October 21.
Before that though, on tonight’s Raw, Belair and Banks will team together against Lynch and Charlotte Flair in a tag match. CAN THEY COEXIST?!?!
