Steve Austin Shares His Thoughts On Becky Lynch Being Compared To Him
Austin was recently a guest on Sirius FightNation.
During Austin’s appearance, he was asked how he feels about fans comparing Becky to him.
Here is what Austin said about Becky:
“She does remind me a lot of myself cause I mean if you line up that women’s roster…and you said ‘hey, I want you pick my next break out superstar’ I don’t think you’re gonna pick out Becky Lynch and I damn sure know you wouldn’t have picked me out of a line-up. So nonetheless, she has willed herself, she has worked her ass off and studied the game and come around and she’s been, got the hot, she’s been cooled off then she’s got a little attitude behind her, just got ticked off and said ‘hey man, I’m gonna be a star.’ And Vince McMahon wants everybody there to be a star. He’s gonna set you up and give you opportunities. She made the most of those opportunities and when they tried to slam a door on her, she kicked the door down and just burst right through it.
So I love what she’s done, I love what she’s doing, I like her swagger and she is the hottest thing going right now and she’s not a person that’s dwelling on ‘this is going to be the most athletic match in the world.’ She’s a great worker in the ring, but it’s character driven. “The Man” – I love that gimmick. If you’re a chick or young lady and you’re calling yourself “The Man” just like Ric Flair used to do – “to be the man you gotta beat the man” this is a whole different entity and the way Becky presents it and obviously she’s a female, I think it’s an awesome gimmick and it’s money”
