To hype this weekend’s Survivor Series event, WWE Superstar Becky Lynch recently spoke with Bleacher Report to discuss what she is looking most forward to at the PPV, thoughts on her recent intergender match with James Ellsworth and explains why she is not part of Total Divas. Highlights of the interview below.
On connecting with the audience:
“When I was on the independent circuit, I always played the heel role, but I always felt that no matter what, I was able to connect with the fans. Whether I was good or not, there was a connection there because I think I just really love wrestling. If you’re a fan, you love wrestling. When you can feel that radiating off somebody, I think you tend to gravitate toward them. I think that’s the same with a lot of the babyfaces throughout WWE history. Fans pick up on that energy. It’s a passion we have for the industry. That resonates with them.”
On not being a part of Total Divas:
“It’s not something I ever wanted for myself. It’s a great opportunity for the women. But I never envisioned myself in that role. And there’s a certain mystique about myself that I’d like to keep. I don’t want to give out too much of Rebecca Quinn.”
On which upcoming NXT Superstars she would like to work with:
On her intergender match with James Ellsworth:
“With that match, my whole hope was that people didn’t get up in arms about a guy touching a woman and that it just became about the storyline as opposed to ‘Oh no! What’s going on in the world?’ It was more about entertainment than making any political or social statement. That’s something people want to see.”
On her upcoming Survivor Series tag team match:
“I’m looking forward to getting in the ring once again with Bayley and Sasha. It’s been a while since we’ve stepped in there together. And they are the other half of the Four Horsewomen that myself and Charlotte never get to see. I feel like all four of us have always brought the best out of each other. To be in the ring with them, I feel like that’s where magic happens.”
Becky Lynch also talks on adopting to a leadership role, wanting to be a trailblazer and her favorite thing about being on SmackDown Live.
