Becky continues to earn the love of the fans.
The current SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch has committed "heelish" acts against Charlotte Flair on WWE television since the two split following their Triple-Threat match with Carmella at the 2018 SummerSlam PPV. Regardless of what Becky does, the fans continue to show support for her and go crazy whenever she comes out in front of a live crowd. Lynch was interviewed by 'The Baltimore Sun' ahead of SmackDown 1000 and had a Q&A session with the site.
Lynch was asked about the moment when she slapped Charlotte following their SummerSlam match and she had the following to say about that moment and the fans who went ballistic as she did it:
"It was incredible. It was incredible to know that the people felt my frustration. This isn't something that's just popped up over a week or a month, it's been three years in the making of just constantly being the underdog and fighting from underneath." Becky said. "Finally, enough is enough and I think everybody has felt that — when they've tried their best and tried their hardest and they haven't gotten ahead. Eventually you just snap and say, 'Enough is enough and I'm going after what I want and what I deserve and I don't care who I have to take out in the process. I'm doing it, I'm making it. To feel that myself and then have everyone in full support of that, it was a great moment."
As noted, Becky is still shown a great deal of love from the crowd regardless of what she does and Becky stated that it does not bother her in the slightest that people choose to cheer her although she is portrayed as a bad guy because in her eyes all people are doing is enjoying the feud and picking a side.
"It's not concerning. They're reacting and they're entertained. They're enjoying the feud. It's just a matter of what side that they're on. Some people are on my side and some people are on Charlotte's side. I do see it on my Twitter feed and Instagram, that I'm getting a lot more hate as it goes on. But it's OK, I'm going after what I want. The people that are behind me, they'll stay behind me. The people that aren't, well that's fine. I'll just go ahead and succeed in spite of them." Becky said.
The champ was then asked about a potential match with RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey at Survivor Series if they both emerge victorious from their championship matches at WWE 'Evolution'. Becky offered her thoughts on "The Baddest Woman On The Planet" along with stating that she'd love to share a ring with Ronda.
"I would love to. I look at Ronda Rousey as a slot machine - the harder you kick her, the more money that comes out of her." Becky continued, "She's incredible. What a natural that she is. She's done so much for women's in sports in general, especially women in MMA. There wouldn't be women in the Octagon if it wasn't for Ronda Rousey, but I'd like to prove to her that I'm better, and that my armbar is better."
