Becky Lynch: I Should Be Making More Money In WWE Than Everybody, Vince McMahon Included

Becky Lynch is pretty confident in her abilities and in her position at the top of the mountain in WWE and believes she should be compensated as much.

The subject of Lynch and her contract was brought up during the build up to her Raw Women's Championship at last month's Royal Rumble pay-per-view. Now that Lynch was able to walk away as the Raw Women's Champion after beating Asuka, her attention now turns towards holding that title all the way until WrestleMania in April.

But as the champion and one of the biggest stars in WWE today, Lynch believes that she should be paid more than everyone in the company, even more than Vince McMahon himself.

“I should be making more in that whole company, everybody — Vince McMahon included. I want to change the game. I want to prove that it doesn’t matter your gender, your race, your background, if you are doing the job and keeping people invested, if you are keeping people interested, then you deserve to be paid at a level higher than anybody else. Or as high as anybody else. As high as the best of them. I look around the arenas and the majority of the people are in my shirts. The majority of people hold signs for me, so pay me as such and that will be the way it will be," Lynch told TV Insider.

Lynch will defend her Raw Women's Championship against Asuka on the February 10 edition of Raw. Fightful will have live coverage of the show.
