Becky Lynch recently spoke with Bleacher Report for an extensive interview promoting tonight’s WWE Survivor Series 2021 pay-per-view.
During the discussion, “Big Time Becks” spoke about her hatred of social media, but understands it’s integral for her success in WWE.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview where she shares her thoughts on this subject.
On how she hates social media but understands its purpose for promoting content: “We have a live microphone on us 24/7 and sometimes it can be used for bad and sometimes it can be used to hype something and show more disdain when we’re coming to a big match,” Lynch said. “I, ironically, hate social media. I think it’s stupid, but I think it has a purpose and that purpose can be used for our work. I don’t think people need to see me brushing my teeth in the morning, but I think people can see how I feel about an opponent and my stories going forward.”
On how she will use social media to further storylines but believes it can be detrimental to one’s mental health: “You made a good point about fans and how they can interact and follow you and I think that’s awesome. That is great. But one thing we see with social media … I like to use it for wrestling purposes and further a storyline. I think there’s so much — for people’s mental health, I think it can be bad. I think it can be detrimental. I think people compare themselves to each other. It gives people an outlet to be constantly angry about things, and I don’t think that’s good for the world. That’s Rebecca Quinn’s philosophy on social media.”
On how she views everything from the eyes of a parent now: “Now that I look at everything from the eyes of being a parent, it’s worrying. People are growing up and there’s likes and dislikes and comparing each other to other people constantly, and I think that can be bad for young people and their mindset on the world growing up.”
