Lynch Explains why Passing the Title to Asuka Meant to Much To Her

May 24, 2020 - by James Walsh

Sports Illustrated recently interviewed WWE Superstar Becky Lynch, where she praised the new Raw women’s champion Asuka and her plans to stay involved with WWE. Below are some highlights. 

Becky Lynch on passing the title to Asuka: “Passing that championship onto Asuka meant a lot. She really, really deserves it. And another element that people missed, because it’s not really advertised, is that she’s a working mom. She’s proven that you can do it all. You can be a badass and go off and have a family, you can come in and still kick more ass, have a YouTube show, and be entertaining as all hell. The fact that she was the person to take that title from me meant a lot to me.” 

On Asuka being a hard worker: “I’ve had some of my favorite matches with her. Asuka’s cool, she’s so good and she’s a hard worker. She wants to give back and she’s not selfish. Around March of 2019, she was kind of robbed a little bit of her title. I was glad this time she was able to get it back.” 

On her plans to stay involved with WWE: “The WWE is my family, my actual family. I will always stay involved.”
