At WWE SummerSlam this weekend, SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Carmella will defend her title in a Triple Threat match against Charlotte Flair and Becky Lynch. Lynch has had quite a nice run on SmackDown Live for the past several weeks and earned her way into the title opportunity.
Upon Charlotte Flair’s return from injury, she was thrusted into the title match right off the bat. In a recent media call, Lynch admitted that Flair’s sudden entrance into the SmackDown Live Women’s Title match does bother her a bit:
“Yeah, of course it does. Of course it does, I’m not going to be happy about it. Friendship and everything aside, it has been something that I’ve been working for my entire life, and it’s something I’ve been focusing on, and I’ve been on a winning streak and a hot streak, and there was nobody that could beat me. I feel like it’s a testament to my mindset, and my work, and of course when you get a spanner thrown in the works, it is going to irritate you.
“But it’s just more of a setback that I’m now used to, to climb the mountain. To overcome obstacles, it has been (that way) my whole career. Nothing comes easy for me, but that’s what makes every victory that bit sweeter.”
