Former WWE SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has made her stance about the desired match at WrestleMania 35 that she wants in various interviews as well as posts on her social media platforms. She wants to face WWE Raw Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey at the biggest event of the year for the company.
Before she can do that, she must get past SmackDown Women’s Champion Asuka at the WWE Royal Rumble pay-per-view event later this month. She earned this title opportunity once she beat Carmella and Charlotte Flair in a Triple Threat to become the new #1 contender on this week’s episode of SmackDown Live in Jacksonville, FL.
WWE’s YouTube channel released this video on their YouTube channel of Lynch taking some shots at Rousey, who is her rumored opponent at Mania later this year.
“I said I’d win and I did. Everything that I’ve said I would do, I have done,” Lynch said. “There are some things that I couldn’t take account for, such as Ronnie sticking her weirdo head in where it doesn’t belong, and interfering in my match and costing me my championship. That’s the kind of coward that she is, that’s the kind of coward they have on RAW. That’s not the kind of champion we had on SmackDown because the champion we had on SmackDown made the SmackDown Women’s Championship the talk of the world, and it changed the entire industry. And then, it’s funny, it’s funny, isn’t it? The golden girl cost me my championship, and the night after, it’s crazy how this works, there’s no automatic rematches. Isn’t that interesting, Kayla? No automatic rematches.”
Lynch continued by stating, “And I shouldn’t be angry about it, I should’ve expected this. I shouldn’t be angry about it, I should expect that I have to work a little bit harder than everybody else, that I have to climb a little bit higher than everybody else, that I have to scratch & claw just a little bit more than everybody else. But I’m up for the task and come, Royal Rumble, I’m taking my championship back to where it belongs – at the top spot of this company.”
