WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch spoke to Ariel Helwani on BT Sport's YouTube channel to promote WrestleMania 38. Here are some highlights:
Lynch was asked if too much of what goes on behind the scenes is revealed to the fans:
"Possibly, yes," she said. "But then on the other side everybody wants to know. Everybody's so interested on the other side of the curtain and so I suppose you have to feed that appetite. But then the thing is, people can feel like they know too much, and you can lose several things, whether it be mystique, and it's also an understanding of how this business works. If you're not in this business, if you've not been in it for years and been in that ring, you can have opinions, but you don't understand the bigger picture of everything and what we're doing and where we're going. So oftentimes opinions when you don't have the full outlook and the full scope of things can actually be detrimental because it can derail a story from where it was going because sometimes there can be knee jerk reactions."
Lynch was asked how if her relationship with Charlotte has gotten better:
“We just pass each other in the hallway.”
Ariel asked if they say hello or ask how are you?’
Lynch said, ‘No.’
Ariel asked if they can be in the same spot?
"We have to do live events, often two days a week. So one has to be able to coexist. We haven't had to work together.”
Lynch was asked how she thinks Ronda Rousey has done since she’s come back:
"In terms of juggling it all look, if anybody who's able to go out there in front of people, and you're able to perform in front of people, and you have a baby that's possibly not sleeping, and you're traveling and getting out in front of the curtain, you know, that's juggling it all. Are you excelling at it? That's a different story."
On if she feels Ronda has returned to the level that she was before:
"I don't think she's returned to that level. I think she may have needed a bit more time. Which again, if you have a child and you're coming back after four months, that is an incredible task and incredible feat. But sometimes you need a bit more time, especially if you haven't been doing this for years upon years upon years. I don't know what her headspace is, but I imagine she's not watching absolutely everything that is wrestling related on TV, that she's not marinating about it every second of every day when she's not with her baby, that she's not talking to her husband on nearly every conversation about how do we make this industry better? How do we make ourselves better? How would this match be better? So I'm just saying, possibly a little bit more time would have been helpful for her. I think she loved it as a fan. I do think she loved it as a fan. So when she came in originally, maybe there was more of a love for it, because she came from that fan's eyes. Maybe her priorities have shifted to where she knows her baby's more important. Her baby is always going to be more important. Of course, it is. But maybe she has that love transferred there as opposed to marrying the two loves."
