Becky Lynch Comments On Contributing To Women’s Wrestling Future

Last updated

Former multi-time WWE RAW and SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch has been one of the four horsewomen who ushered in the women’s revolution. She has immense contributions in women’s pro wrestling and it seems she is eyeing to contribute more.

Becky Lynch talks about the future of women’s wrestling

Lynch has worked as both heel and babyface. Whatever the case may be, she has excelled with both types of character trait. Lynch was speaking during a panel discussion at NYC Advertising Week on WWE’s relationship with social media.

Big Time Becks discussed her diverse character work, and said she feels she can be more helpful to new female talent as a heel.

Lynch explained:

‘Being a babyface, I tend to naturally fall into. I think, honestly, I’m not the greatest athlete in the world and I think my story of perseverance has registered with a lot of people. Fans can get behind that underdog who constantly has to overcome.

‘But then when it comes to business and wrestling as a whole, especially women’s wrestling, I feel like I can be of help by being a heel, right? Because when you’re a babyface, it’s all about you. It’s about how good you look. It’s how do we make the audience like you the most? And when you’re a heel, it’s all about how do you make the babyface look? How can you get people invested and want to see this guy win?

‘I feel like I’ve gotten enough equity with the audience that I’m able to help a babyface. And then as a whole, that just helps women’s wrestling. When people get more equity and get more exposure and I think that drives the business forward.’

When asked about the future of women’s wrestling, The Man (an ironic name in this context) said that she believes NXT is the future.

Lynch continued:

‘I look at NXT and’“this is no discourse towards the men’“but the women, I go ’˜oh, yep. That’s the future.’ That’s where the engaging characters are. There’s incredible athleticism, that’s athleticism that never in a million years I would be capable of. I think you can see the interest in what the women are doing down there and so I think it’s the future.

‘And I look at our women’s roster now and I go between me, you’ve got Bianca Belair. You’ve got Rhea Ripley, who’s just incredible and she’s so young. And you’ve got Liv Morgan and you have all these incredible women just getting started. It’s awesome. I’m very excited about it.’
