SmackDown Superstar Becky Lynch recently sat down with Mirror Online to discuss WrestleMania 33, the Superstar Shakeup and the possibility of feuding with her dear friend Charlotte Flair. Highlights of the interview below.
Thoughts on WrestleMania 33 event: “Oh it was amazing, it was great to be back in Orlando, which is kind of where this part of my journey started. That’s where I started with NXT. So it was amazing to go back and be on the main card of WrestleMania in front of 75,000 people and going out there right before The Undertaker, which sounds a little bit crazy doesn’t it? Being sandwiched in between Brock Lesnar versus Goldberg and The Undertaker’s last match! It was incredible, a dream come true.”
Fans using #GiveSDWomenAChance to move WrestleMania 33 SmackDown Women’s Title match to main card: “They did because I felt like since the brand split, sometimes it wasn’t even, and we weren’t represented the way the other side [the Raw women’s division] was. I feel like it should have been equal because we have got people so invested in our characters and in our storylines and I want to see that rewarded. Eventually after the fans spoke up, we were.”
Reaction to the Superstar Shake-Up: “I’m delighted I remained on SmackDown, I love SmackDown. I think it’s the better wrestling show and since day one I have wanted to be on SmackDown. Plus the fact we get Charlotte, who is an incredible talent and just amazing. I was sad to see my friends leave though, that was sad, like Heath Slater and Rhyno, Apollo Crews and Kalisto, and everybody else, I was like ‘no!’, The Miz and Maryse, Dean [Ambrose] and Bray [Wyatt], Mickie. But we got some great new talents here too, so I’m very excited for that.”
On the possibility of feuding with Charlotte Flair: “I think we only barely scratched the surface. I think one of the turning points in the women’s revolution was actually myself and Charlotte going into our feud. Before then there had been lots of women’s matches, which was great, and we were getting to see the rewards, but there wasn’t really any depth behind it. Then once we started our feud that went into the Royal Rumble last year, I think that was really a turning point because we were able to see a friendship falling apart and that is something people can get into, as opposed to ‘okay, here’s women, there’s a revolution apparently, watch there matches’. This was something that people could relate to because it was one friend being ruthless and doing anything she could to win and screwing her best friend. Then it went off in a different direction but I would like to pick up where we left off.”
