WWE Star Becky Lynch Speaks About Backlash Match, Charlotte
Friday, May 19, 2017
Former SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with USA Today's Josh Barnett to promote the Backlash pay-per-view show Sunday at Rosemont, Illinois.
Here's what Becky had to say about the Backlash tag match where she will team with Charlotte and current champ Naomi against Tamina, Natalya and Carmella of the Welcoming Committee Stable:
I generally prefer singles matches or multi-person matches like four-ways or triple threats or six-pack challenges, but there’s always a challenge with tag team matches with doing a different formula for people to worry about. If I had the choice, I’d rather worry about myself. I was never a team sport player so I think that lends itself to why I prefer singles matches.
Becky was also asked about Charlotte's move to SmackDown during the Superstar Shakeup:
This gives it a longevity to where we can go. If we start fighting right now, there’s not really anywhere we can go. If we can team up and be on the same page, there are a multitude of directions we can go. Eventually, I’d like to face her for a championship down the line. Hopefully, it will be me with the championship. I’ve never gotten to face her in a fair fight. She’s always had someone in her corner, whether it was Ric or Dana Brooke so it will be interesting to see how that will go, she’s here and on her own and going solo.
Becky also spoke about adding comedy to her character:
It will come in time, right now, my character needs an element of more intensity instead of a comedy role, although I would love, for example, to team up with Breezango and do something on the Fashion Files. That is one of my favorite segments on Smackdown Live now.
With the Becky Lynch character, there are so many different elements we haven’t seen yet. I’ve been a similar story-line in the last year and a half or two years. Hopefully, it’s not going to end with Charlotte turning on me again, but oh dear, if that’s what it is, I will be a lot smarter to it and then we’ll see an extra edge to my character.
