Becky Lynch: I never thought fans would boo me

Last updated

WWE Superstar Becky Lynch recently discussed her heel turn back in 2018 and why she felt that it was never going to work.

Lynch faced Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam 2018, and after Flair defeated Lynch she turned heel and began the greatest run of her career.

It was on the SmackDown after that Lynch cut a heel promo on the crowd in attendance, and it was from there that it was clear that the fans didn’t want to boo her at all.

Speaking on The Broken Skull Sessions, Lynch discussed the whole situation. ‘Years of being in back and waiting my turn and not getting it,’ Lynch explained.

‘Constantly feeling like I’m right there, and then taken off TV, and then right there, and then taken off TV, and right there. So it just constantly felt like that. I didn’t want to go to the audience that night, but they really wanted me to” Becky Lynch continued.

‘But, and I said to them, ’˜When Charlotte beat me, you all stood up and cheered the new champion’. When I said that, I could feel a, ’˜Ugh, yeah, we did. We did. I’m sorry.’ And it felt like there’s no way heeling on them right now is going to work. I did it, I did it only a little bit. But I knew that it wasn’t going to work” Lynch added.

‘Not for a single freakin’ second. Did anybody think that? There were some people in the office that thought they were going to boo me, but there was nobody else that thought I was the heel in this thing” Lynch concluded.
