While Becky Lynch already has a tall order ahead of her this Saturday in the form of Bianca Belair, she is already looking ahead to Hollywood.
In speaking to New York Post, Lynch said she wasn’t surprised that for Ronda’s return to WrestleMania she was booked to face SmackDown Women’s Champion, Charlotte Flair, instead of her saying:
“I think the idea was, let’s give it even more of a build and possibly do this in Hollywood [at WrestleMania 39] of all places. I think the idea was to give it a little bit of extra time, and hell, let frickin’ Ronda get her feet wet.
“We had to tell this story with Bianca, too, so was I surprised? No, not entirely, not really. I think they thought of Hollywood as maybe being the spot for where this match would go down.”
Going on to discuss her feud with Ronda Rousey, Becky elaborated on why she isn’t intimidated by Ronda Rousey’s notoriety but does understand fans’ interest in a major match between the two, saying:
“My talent, my skill, my ability to communicate has gotten me to the top, so I don’t care what your name is, you’re behind me right now. It was that attitude that started this whole thing and then obviously we were supposed to have that Survivor Series match and my face got busted open and we never had that one-on-one match. So maybe, we’ll have it next year. Maybe something else will happen. I’m not worried. I am the name right now.”
Becky Lynch is set to defend her Raw Women’s Championship on WrestleMania Saturday, April 2, 2022 at WrestleMania 38 in Dallas, Texas.
