WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch continues to turn up everywhere in the media.
“The Man” has been doing interviews all over the place since becoming “Becky 2 Belts” in the historic, first-ever women’s main event at WrestleMania 35 last month with her victory over Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair.
In another new interview, the Irish WWE Superstar spoke with Mass Live to promote the WWE Money In The Bank pay-per-view at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut on Sunday, May 19th. As noted, Lynch will be pulling double-duty, defending the RAW Women’s Championship against Lacey Evans and the SmackDown Women’s Championship against Charlotte in separate matches on the show.
Featured below are some of the highlights from the interview.
On working two matches at the WWE Money In The Bank PPV: “I was asked last week, why would I take on two competitors at Money in the Bank? I have two belts. I made my way to WrestleMania by fighting twice in one night. I’m not the underdog anymore. I’m the top dog.
“People always said my dreams were unrealistic, to go from the WrestleMania pre-show (in 2017) to the main event. It was a matter of breaking through, and I accepted that until I made it happen.”
On feeling like the 2018 WWE Money In The Bank PPV is the turning point for her in terms of the fans beginning to rally behind her: “Every time I stepped foot on the ladder, to win that contract [to receive a championship opportunity], the crowd went mad. It showed everyone that I have a bond with the audience. That maybe they were sick of me being overlooked. And I really attribute that to everything else that happened.”
