Becky Lynch no longer lacks in confidence.
Since decking Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam in August, Becky Lynch has carried herself in a different way. She's gone from being the underdog who just wanted an opportunity to taking opportunities and asking questions later. She's become The Man.
Speaking to Hollywood Life, Lynch discussed what it takes to be The Man in WWE.
"That confidence? You know, the thing of it is, it’s always an inside job, right? It doesn’t come overnight. This is something that I’ve been working on for a long time, and why this works so well is because we’ve seen me not have confidence," said Lynch. "We’ve seen me persevere. We’ve seen every obstacle being thrown my way and finding a way to deal with it. But, it’s all about believing in yourself, and I always say, you know, you’re the only person that lives in your head. So, you can walk around telling yourself how great you are all day, walk around telling yourself how bad you are all day, like, it seems a lot better to live in a place where you’re saying you’re great, you know? So, I think you just gotta constantly work on believing in yourself, and believing that you’re enough. Have faith that you’ve got everything that it takes to make it. If you put the work in? Of course, you do."
The change in attitude has led Lynch to become the SmackDown Women's Champion and arguably the face of the brand. She's not only become must-see TV -- her return this past Tuesday on SmackDown helped the show beat Monday's episode of Raw in the ratings -- she's become must-follow on social media. Her quick wit and biting quips has burned the like of Ronda Rousey, Nia Jax, Chris Jericho, Seth Rollins, and more on social media. Her latest viral win included burying Charlotte with a Simpsons related meme.
Along with being the SmackDown Women's Champion, Lynch is now a movie star, having starred in The Marine 6 alongside The Miz and Shawn Michaels. When asked what she learned from the two former World Champions, Lynch said, "Watching how Miz navigated the film, how he conducted himself, and how he treated everybody really was just wonderful to see. He was such a great leader, really created this great atmosphere. Shawn is absolutely incredible. He was an incredible wrestler — obviously, one of the best of all time — and he’s just incredible at acting. I feel like there’s nothing he can’t do. And he was just so generous with his time and his advice. Both of them were. I loved every second of it."
Lynch previously credited Michaels for helping her develop her new attitude when she returned to the company following filming.
