Lynch: “I love proving people wrong”

Apr 3, 2019 - by James Walsh

The Orlando Sentinel recently interviewed WWE Superstar Becky Lynch ahead of WrestleMania 35. Below are some highlights. 

Becky Lynch on hearing the plan for Charlotte vs. Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania: “I remember someone saying last year that Charlotte vs. Ronda might be the main event, and I thought … ‘Over my dead body.’” 

Lynch on hearing the match would be the main event: “I just felt waves of gratitude and relief. We really did it. We got the main event. There were tears, lots of tears just streaming down my face. Everything I worked my entire life for was coming to fruition.”

Lynch on what started all this and why the match needed her: “It started when I slapped the head off Charlotte. If I didn’t do that, if it was just Charlotte and Ronda, it would have been the most boring WrestleMania main event in history, and maybe not even the main event. Can you imagine? It needed me. The match needed me.” 

Lynch on why frustration is a good tool: “I think frustration is a wonderful thing, a fantastic tool, if you use it properly. If you get frustrated and just b—- and moan, forget about it. But I love proving people wrong, so I use that frustration as rocket fuel.” 

Becky Lynch on how her concussion injury helped her: “Looking back, if I don’t get concussed, I’m main eventing a different show, and we have to listen to Charlotte and Ronda whine all winter long, and I’m not in the main event of WrestleMania. So that’s the perfect ending.”
