As one of the leaders of the WWE women’s revolution, Becky Lynch has been on the forefront of cutting edge advances in women’s wrestling these days.
In a recent interview with Ringside Collectibles, Lynch would like to see a number of firsts for the women’s division in WWE. Here are highlights from the interview:
What would she like to do or see come to the women’s division?
Now that I’ve done the Tables Match, I’ve done the Ladders Match – and I got hit with a chair at the end of it – I think it’s only due time I have a TLC match. I would also like to be part of the main event (at) WrestleMania. I would also like there to be a women’s Royal Rumble. I would also like there to be women’s tag titles.
Facing the other Four Horsewomen:
That would be a competitive matchup, but it’s our sport, not theirs, and that’s what I’ve been saying. I appreciate everything those women have done for their sport, but this our sport and this is our territory.
The Mae Young Classic and one of its standout performances:
Watching that warmed my heart and I’ll tell ya why, because when I started wrestling all of those years ago, we’re talking about being on the independents. We’re talking 12, 13, 14 years ago and seeing women who were there at the time and working – with no light at the end of the tunnel – and they kept progressing. So, Mercedes Martinez was one and she did so well and it was so great to watch her, having worked all that time and now get the platform she deserves.
