Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by Sportskeeda to talk Money in the Bank and a variety of other subjects. Here are the highlights:
Who came up with a women’s MITB match:
“I think it was one of the writers or Road Dogg. I can’t be a hundred percent sure but I just know that it was one of those things where it was: ‘are we sure we can do this?’, and then I think seeing the caliber of talent we have on SmackDown, they were like: ‘yes we can do this and yes it’s gonna be great!'”
The wrestler she’d pick as her partner for a mixed tag match:
“Currently, A.J. Styles, because it’s not just a moniker, he is Phenomenal. He’s just incredible, one of the best that we have and have ever had. I think our entrances are quite a bit similar so I think that we could come up with something pretty awesome to do there…I think we’d be unstoppable as a tag team.”
What the prize should be for the Mae Young Classic:
“As far as I know, it will be a trophy like they did with the Cruiserweight Classic. I think it would be the same thing. And then I’d like to see the winner come up and try her hand at Smackdown. That’d be great!”
If she’d ever try MMA:
“That’s not something that I envision myself doing. It’s not my passion; I’m passionate about sports entertainment and that’s where I wanna keep putting my energy into.”
Who came up with her finisher:
“Actually, it was Goldust who came up with it. The name was something that Simon Gotch came up with. I was trying to figure out a name for it and he’s actually very good at wordplay, so he came up with that.”
