QUICK QUOTES: Becky Lynch on getting back into wrestling after retiring, her Steampunk look, someday turning heel

Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by the Evening Times before a WWE event in Glasgow. Here are some of the highlights:

Her thoughts on Nikki Cross, who is from Glasgow:

“I think Nikki is amazing. I can’t wait to face her and work with her. The way she moves around is terrific, and the aggressiveness she has is great. She can be a real asset for the Women’s Division and I would love to see her on Smackdown.”

How she got back into wrestling after leaving in 2006 due to an injury:

“I know it’s cheesy, but they always say that if you love something then let it go, and if it comes back to you then you know [it’s what you are meant to do]. Having wrestling gone from my life for so long meant that I knew what it was like without it. Every day now I’ll wake up and be told to do things, and put hard work in, but it seems effortless, because I know what the payoff to it all is. When I wasn’t wrestling I was searching for something that I could feel strongly about as much as wrestling, and I never found that, so when I came back, and was able to make my living out of it, that was unbelievable.”

On her Steampunk based look:

“It’s my brainchild and you just try and put more layers on it. I don’t really consult with anyone about where it’s going, I just come up with ideas and try to put them out there and hope they connect with the audience. It’s trial and error. Steampunk is a style that I just thought was cool and hadn’t really seen it before in wrestling. It seemed like something that you could do a lot with, because there’s all this creativity and innovation.”

If she’ll ever turn heel:

“I’d like to be a heel again, absolutely. However there are still so many elements of my personality that have yet to come out – I’d like to do more comedy, for example, and show all the elements of Becky Lynch. Then maybe an attitude adjustment would be in order, but we’ll see how things pan out.”

What she wants to see next for the Women’s Division:

“The next goal for us is that all the women want to main event Wrestlemania. As far as getting opportunities we really are getting them, so hopefully we’ll get ladder matches and Elimination Chamber matches down the line. We’re already getting to do cage matches, tables matches and that’s really exciting. We just need to keep moving in the direction we are moving in and the destination will be beautiful.”
