Becky Lynch spoke with the Press Enterprise promoting Tuesday’s SmackDown taping. Check out the highlights:
On living her childhood dream: “When you say that, it’s still like one day I’m going to sit down and it’s going to hit me. It’s still so unbelievable. I was just in Mexico and the Undertaker was there doing his entrance. And I was like ‘what is this? We have to follow the Undertaker!’ It’s unfathomable. (NXT Women’s champion) Bayley and I talk about this and think about what we’re doing and absolutely cry with gratitude. We’re the luckiest people in the world. It’s living out a childhood dream with your childhood heroes.”
On her January 18th RAW promo segment with Ric Flair: “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 whether Divas will main event WrestleMania one day: “I think so. 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. Look at Ronda Rousey and I guess now Holly Holm. It’s a new time and it’s great to be part of it.”
Did you know that just a few weeks before Roman Reigns signed a WWE contract to join the organization’s developmental promotion at the time, Florida Championship Wrestling, he was arrested in Pensacola, Florida for disorderly intoxication/affray and unlawful assembly. Reigns was placed in handcuffs for appearing drunk in public and getting into a fight. He was subsequently released on $1,000 bond and charged $500 for each offence. We’ve obtained his hilarious MUGSHOT photo that you can view by clicking here. You gotta’ see what he looked like back then!
