Becky Lynch gives BRUTALLY HONEST assessment of WWE Creative

Last updated

WWE’s NXT Women’s Champion, Becky Lynch, recently provided a candid critique of WWE’s women’s division booking. This critique comes in the wake of a controversial decision surrounding a match that was initially planned between Lynch and Tegan Nox.

The wrestling community was abuzz when news broke about a scheduled match between Lynch and Nox for the NXT Women’s Title on the September 18th episode of Raw.

However, in a surprising turn of events, just before the show, WWE decided to replace Nox, who was set for her debut singles match on Raw, with Natalya, a seasoned WWE professional with nearly 17 years under her belt.

This decision sparked a significant debate. Many felt that younger or relatively new talents like Nox were being denied the chance to establish themselves. Becky Lynch echoed these sentiments.

Becky Lynch: Perspective on Women’s Booking

In a revealing interview with the New York Post, Lynch expressed her concerns about the current state of the women’s roster on Raw.

She felt that there was a shortage of women with established credibility. Lynch emphasised the importance of giving talented women the opportunity to prove themselves, stating, “Currently, we are a little light on women with credibility on Raw. So any way I can give these women, who are great, credibility, give them a match, give them an outing and showcase them in a championship match, I think that only benefits everybody.”

Lynch’s passion for elevating the women’s division is evident. She believes that by giving more women a platform, the audience benefits by having a diverse range of female wrestlers to support. Moreover, it provides Lynch with worthy competitors. She also highlighted a significant issue: the lack of TV and story time for many female wrestlers. Without adequate exposure, these talents remain unknown to the broader audience, making it challenging for them to rise to prominence.

Lynch revealed that she had personally requested the match with Nox, which was later altered. She also mentioned several female wrestlers, including Zoey Stark, Indi Hartwell, Xia Li, and Candice LeRae, who she believes have immense potential and deserve to be spotlighted.

The Aftermath and Future Matches

Despite the initial change, Nox did get her moment in the spotlight. She defeated Natalya in a subsequent match, earning herself a shot at the NXT Women’s Title on Raw.

This match is scheduled two nights post-Lynch’s defence against Tiffany Stratton at No Mercy on September 30th.
