Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with SportsKeeda to promote the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view event in St. Louis, MO at the Royal Farms Arena. During the interview, she was asked about being featured along with Carmella, Tamina, Charlotte Flair, and Natalya in the first-ever women’s Money In The Bank ladder match and who came up with the idea for the match.
“I think it was one of the writers or Road Dogg. I can’t be a hundred percent sure but I just know that it was one of those things where it was: “are we sure we can do this?”, and then I think to see the caliber of talent we have on SmackDown, they were like: “yes we can do this, and yes it’s gonna be great!”
WWE’s upcoming Women’s Tournament will be called the Mae Young Classic. Episodes of the 32-competitor women’s tournament, which will be similar to the Cruiserweight Classic, will be taped on July 13th and 14th in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University. When asked about it what the prize should be for the winner, she thinks it will be a trophy.
“As far as I know, it will be a trophy like they did with the Cruiserweight Classic. I think it would be the same thing. And then I’d like to see the winner come up and try her hand at SmackDown. That’d be great!”
Lynch also talked about who was the best Superstar to work with, headlining a WWE PPV event and more. You can read the entire interview here.
