Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by Noelle Foley for Ringside Collectibles, and she spoke about all of the wrestling firsts in her past, and several more firsts that she hopes are in her future.
“Now that I’ve done the Tables Match (at TLC last December), I’ve done the Ladders Match (at Money In The Bank last month) – and I got hit with a chair at the end of it – I think it’s only due time I have a TLC match. I would also like to be part of the main event of WrestleMania. I would also like there to be a women’s Royal Rumble. I would also like there to be women’s tag titles.”
That's quite a long wish list for Becky, but if there's one person out there who believes she can achieve it, it's the father of the person who interviewed her--WWE Hall of Famer Mick Foley.
Mick posted this to his Facebook page this morning:
I really enjoyed an interview my daughter Noelle did with Becky Lynch, and for me, the charisma, humor, and yes, straight fire Becky displayed in a fun little interview was illustrative of her still untapped potential in WWE. Not that Becky hasn't done great things already in #WWE, but I just have this gut feeling that we have yet to see the very best from the #IrishLassKicker. It's a potential that may just be one great angle, one incredible promo, one magic moment away.
One of Paul Heyman's greatest attributes in #ECW was having the knack of giving the talent just enough guidance, instilling just enough confidence to allow talent to find something more within themselves than they'd previously produced or possibly even felt possible. I saw it in Steve Austin, when Paul tapped into the frustration and anger felt - and within weeks, Steve went from a good, solid mic man to being one of the best promos in the business. I saw it in the way he helped transform Taz from a silent, one-dimensional performer into one of the most intriguing characters in the business. Certainly, the guidance Paul lent me helped me find a voice that produced some of the best work of my career.
If Becky Lynch can find her personal Paul E - someone behind the scenes at WWE SmackDown Live who can wind her up...and let her go, I think Ms Lynch is capable of taking her game to a level she herself might not think possible.
Let me know what you think of Becky and what you'd like to see in her future.
So according to Mick Foley, Becky Lynch just needs to become a Paul Heyman Girl, and all her dreams will come true.
