Becky Lynch Praises Ronda Rousey For Her Performances In WWE Thus Far

Becky Balboa versus Ronda Rousey?

At the close of the first-ever Women's Royal Rumble match was when UFC Hall Of Famer Ronda Rousey made her presence felt in WWE. It was announced by WWE and various media outlets that Ronda inked a long-term deal with WWE and was there to stay. Months later she would go on to have her first pro wrestling match at WrestleMania 34 in front of a decked out crowd inside of the Mercedes Benz-Superdome in New Orleans.

Ronda then went on to challenge Nia Jax for the RAW Women's Championship at the 'Money In The Bank' PPV and both of those matches have been praised by those who viewed it. Ronda is now heading into her third televised match on August 19th when she will be challenging Alexa Bliss for the RAW Women's Title at SummerSlam. A number of talents on WWE's roster have answered the question of what would happen in a match between their selves and Ronda Rousey and one of the talents who recently answered that question is the first-ever SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch.

“I would beat her with an armbar.” Becky said during an interview with Noelle Foley of Ringside Collectibles. “Absolutey, it would be armbar versus armbar, and so Ronda is here and man, she’s… can we just take a second to appreciate how incredible she’s doing, and of course she is an unbelievable athlete like an Olympian, UFC… Women’s MMA wouldn’t be where it is today without her and all her success and what’s she’s done. But she has just taken like a duck to water to our rings and she’s such a superstar across the world." Becky continued, "So that’s why I look at her as a slot machine. So the harder I kick her, the more money is gonna fall out so its gonna be better for me.”
