WWE’s recent trip to Saudi Arabia was certainly a controversial one. Aside from the kidnapped and murdered Saudi journalist controversy, WWE was taking a lot of heat for participating in a show that barred female competitors, despite how heavily they push their Women’s Revolution.
Many women within WWE have remained relatively quiet on the matter. During a recent interview on the “Gorilla Position” podcast, SmackDown Live Women’s Champion Becky Lynch touched on the subject. When Crown Jewel was mentioned, here’s what “The Irish Lasskicker” had to say:
”Ummm. Yeah. I guess it’s something that I really wasn’t concentrating on or putting any of my focus on because for me it was all about where I can compete and what I can do. And if I wasn’t on that then I was thinking about Evolution, I was thinking about how I can be the champ, how I can be The Man.
“Although, I do know our match was advertised there, myself vs. Ronda Rousey, and it seemed like The Man got a big pop there. They like The Man in Saudi Arabia.”
