Becky Lynch addresses the Total Divas rumors, talks about her boyfriend, her character and more

USA Today's Josh Barnett had the opportunity to speak with The Lass Kicker Becky Lynch ahead of Sunday's WWE Backlash show in Chicago.

Among the topics discussed was a rumor about her joining Total Divas. Apparently, there have been rumors floating around about her being added to the show since the news got out that Eva Marie would not be returning. Based on Lynch's response, don't expect to see her on the show, at least not anytime soon. She said, "Honestly, you’re the first person that’s said that to me. I haven’t heard anything about that. … I think there’s a certain – not a whole lot – but a certain amount of mystery of me that I don’t really envision that as the best option for me to take part in. It’s a tremendous opportunity for those that do it, I just don’t know that it’s my thing. When I envisioned my life as a little girl, that was never in my horizons. I’m going to stay with what I want in the future. I don’t see that being reality TV."

She also talked about her boyfriend/UFC fighter Luke Sanders. He's actually helped to show her some moves for the wrestling ring. She said, "(As far as working out), he’s so great about taking the time to show me things. I’ll ask and he’ll come up with ideas. The spinning back kick that I’ve started using in a lot of my matches is something he showed me. There is a bunch of stuff that he showed me in the gym the other day that I haven’t incorporated yet, but it’s so good to be able to bring a different freshness into the ring."

Lynch also talked about loving bad puns, wanting to switch from being comedic into a more intense character, her thoughts on James Ellsworth, turning 30 and more.
