Lynch backtracks on wizard line, tells Chris Jericho “no heat!”
“I have superhuman powers. I’m a wizard,” Lynch said during commentary, explaining how she made Bianca Belair’s title disappear quickly at SummerSlam last year. She then said she’s actually a magician and not a wizard.
WWE’s social media team even posted the wizard quote, but Lynch corrected them.
“I’m a magician. I made her title disappear in 26 seconds,” Lynch wrote. “I preferred that line.”
She then jokingly addressed Chris Jericho.
“No heat @IAmJericho,” she tweeted.
Jericho has been using the wizard gimmick for the last several weeks as he continues to reinvent himself in AEW.
“I’m a magician. I made her title disappear in 26 seconds” – Becky Lynch, tonight.
I preferred that line.
