Becky Lynch is set to defend the Raw Women's Title against Shayna Baszler at WrestleMania 36. Lynch is no stranger to facing former MMA fighters on the biggest stage, having stepped in the ring with Ronda Rousey at WrestleMania 35.
Baszler and Rousey are best friends and part of the MMA Four Horsewomen. And when asked by Scott Fishman of TV Insider about the similarities between the two, Lynch offered up the following response.
"It’s a different animal with Shayna Baszler. The thing about Shayna is whatever you want to say about it, she has been wrestling longer. She is the one who got Ronda into wrestling because she was such a huge fan. We also haven’t seen what she can truly do on Raw. We’ve seen it on NXT. It’s a whole new kettle of fish up on Raw. Ronda is an anomaly. She came in and had this background and pedigree and a worldwide star," she said. "We all knew what she was capable of. Shayna is a little less well-known, but I think in that realm she had a lot more to prove. Like I said in my promo on Monday, she is looking to rewrite history because normal people like me don’t beat trained killers like Ronda. But I did, and I will again. I think she is looking to change that. So she is looking to come in as vicious as she possibly can."
Baszler earned her Raw Women's Title match by virtue of winning the Raw Women's Elimination Chamber.
