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:

Nikki Cross, Peyton Royce, Billie Kay – those three would be my top.”

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.

    Even in the independents as a heel, you still couldn’t help but love her; I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more natural babyface (other than Mickie James) and while I know she can play a heel very well, I think I’d love to see Becky really milk a strong babyface run before that happens.

    Also, I don’t ever see Becky in TD – much like AJ, there’s a privacy with Becky that I like – she keeps Rebecca Quinn and Becky Lynch separate, and I can appreciate that in her.

  • Darryl lee

    well, I did enjoy seeing Ellsworth get beat up the first time. But after the 6th time I’m wondering: “Why are they doing this Again? Who’s the face and heel?”

  • conan_kun

    Hope Becky just doing cameo appearance on Total Divas, she don’t need Total Divas to stay relevant

    They usually put over Total Divas casts by showing Total Divas commercial and broadcast date and time on the screen when the cast in the ring before the match. See how Mickie, Emma (before being released), Dana, Alicia just get a little time on Raw due to not being the cast. Charlotte, Bayley, Becky and Sasha can stay relevant due to their huge popularity of Four Horsewomen

    • MK126

      Maybe its just me but am I the only one who thought Brie looked better than Nikki in the TD promos?

    • Wicked Bliss

      The first thing I thought when I saw her in TD is dang this girl is very beautiful I wouldn’t mind seeing her more in any way (e.g., as a cast of TD). I really think she’s one of the prettiest women wrestler ever.

  • MK126

    She can be the Emma/Tamina of TD and just be the queen of cameos lol TBH the only people I’d wanna see on TD out of the 4HW would be Sasha and Charlotte only because their lives outside of WWE would seem interesting enough to watch

  • Do your thing Becky. And Disarm Pamela this Sunday as well please.

    • Buffyrocks

      I actually think a Becky vs Bayley feud would be wrestling gold. As much as I love Becky as a face, she is also a tremendous heel, and I think she would help to highlight the great aspects of a babyface Bayley. Plus, those two can go in the ring.

      • I loved their interactions last year at SS, except Becky looked more like a face since she was alone and Bayley had Charlotte on her side. So maybe this time around Becky could help Bayley get that babyface aura back.

        • Buffyrocks

          Becky can literally do it all ;) I’ve no doubt she could help get Bayley back on track. Switch Bayley over to SD! during the next draft/roster shuffle, and let those two have a long feud (perhaps with no title on the line, just a story driven feud).

          • Bayley needs something really fresh at this point and SD would be good. Also preferably no Sasha with her since they ran their friendship to the ground.

          • Joseph

            I feel like they are going to put Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte and Becky all on the same show next year.


    Becky Lynch, currently the most underplayed asset WWE has in their women’s division. Total Diva? Total sweetheart.

  • Rodney Holston

    I’m super down for a heel Becky. She’s still get cheered but I’d love to see how she changes her character up.

  • Buffyrocks

    Becky Lynch is pretty amazing. Hands down my favorite of the HW (and I am one of those rare DD users that actually likes all four of the HW), and one of my favorite women wrestlers of the past 20 years. Go Becky! <3

    • It

      I like the 4 of them too

    • Joseph

      I like all the 4HW too.

    • Typical Heel

      I like all of them, its just that for me, Sasha > Charlotte > then Bayley & Becky

    • Cilla

      I like all 4 of them too, but Becky is definitely my favourite. Although Bayley does get on my nerves sometimes.

  • TorrieTrishStacyLita

    ?? cannot understand why she’s so underutilized. Disarm Asuka friend ?

  • Summer_Slay

    Becky vs Billie PS her finisher shouldve been that move at the end.

  • Becky is and has been such a class act

  • DayOneISH!

    I just can’t get into Becky Lynch she doesn’t really do anything for me.Shes a great wrestler and everything and I don’t mind watching her wrestle but character wise I don’t know.Shes my least favorite of the 4HW.

    AGAIN I’m not saying she sucks or anything so don’t assume I’m hating on her.

    • Scarlet Letter

      I think a lot has to do with, She came to the main Roster, and she came to SD and she won the title and then WWE really hasn’t done anything else with her. Which they could do so much more. I would love to see Natalya vs Becky. i feel that would be an interesting feud.

  • wysna

    Should they ever put more focus on the wrestling aspect via Total Divas, it would be amazing to have Becky along to give her bits. She is one of the best wrestlers in the roster and I personally would love to pick her brain.

  • She’s one of my faves to be honest, so much passion, fire and love inside of hers. I’m so connected with her.

  • Scarlet Letter

    To me it’s crazy, when she talks about her intergender match, that practicall two decades ago, we had Chyna facing and destroying men left and right in the ring, along with Jacqueline. So its crazy to think that two decades later, we’re worried that people are gonna be upset because a man is hitting a women. Seems crazy. Hopefully WWE does more with Becky, because she deserves a lot more. Hopefully we’ll see another title run with her soon.

    • Sable’s Bumps

      half of this site would lose their mind and cry about the patriarchy and white privilege if they had any real intergender matches. at the name “intergender” alone people would lose their sh!t.

  • Geo14

    You are boring, sweetie, thats why you arent on Total Divas.

  • vdcvt

    I believe it’s true, Becky’s just got this aura that makes her so likeable. I like her just randomly popping up a little this season in Total Divas, reckon that’s all she needs on the show tbh
