Coming out of WrestleMania 35, the new WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been making the media rounds.
In a new interview with The National, “The Man” spoke about what is next for her, Ronda Rousey and the momentum their main event match had going into WrestleMania 35.
Featured below are some of the highlights.
On what is next for her: “Stay on the top of the division. Now’s going to be the hardest part because not only do I have one target on my back, I have two targets on my back. So everybody wants a piece of me, everybody’s going to want to be knocking me down. Plus, on Sunday I just showed what was possible. I showed the entire women’s division that anything’s possible. That you can go from the bottom of the card to the top of the card in a year. So everybody’s going to be champing at the bit, but they’ll find out it’s not as easy as it looks.”
On Ronda Rousey breaking her hand in WrestleMania 35 match and wanting to send her packing: “Oh yeah, slap the head off her and chase her out of the company. It was great. It was great. She talked about how my face was so easily breakable and then broke her hand on my face.”
On being nervous about losing WrestleMania 35 main event slot to Kofi Kingston vs. Daniel Bryan: “I was worried about it slipping away. Just because the build to the match had been so long that I was worried with Kofi heating up as much as he did, and them referring to several of the matches as the main event. Then I was like, ‘Oh, but are we the main event? But maybe they … I mean, they really should, but maybe they won’t.’ Because you never know in this place, which is a great thing but also a bad thing and a terrifying thing, especially when you’re trying to achieve all of your dreams.”
