Becky is loving the ride she is on.
Starting off her career in professional wrestling, "The Irish Lasskicker" Becky Lynch was never the most confident individual and she has stated herself that she was not good at wrestling for quite some time. She was trained in Ireland by former 3-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Finn Balor and at one point Becky decided that the sport was not for her and departed from it as a whole.
She soon made her return to wrestling and fast forward to 2018 and Becky is now a two-time and current SmackDown Live Women's Champion and has the crowd behind her one-hundred percent whenever she steps into a ring. Becky wants to be the best and she shared those sentiments when she sat down for a chat with Nita Strauss who is the guitarist that played WWE United States Champion Shinsuke Nakamura to the ring at WrestleMania 34.
During their 34-minute discussion, Becky shared that the "novelty" of being a professional wrestler has never worn off for her and she still gets butterflies when she thinks about the position she's is in and how far she has come.
“Ever since the first time I walked into that place [gym in Ireland], and I took my first bump and I was terrible at it and I was awful, but it was a community that I wanted to believe in and it was something I wanted to get better at, and I never had that feeling before, and then…. Jeez I remember the first time stepping into a ring. We got a ring three months later and being there and being in that ring - I was like, ‘What is this? This is a real wrestling ring. This is a real wrestling…’ I couldn't get over the fact that I was standing… I had watched this thing on TV and I was standing in a wrestling ring. Holy moly, and even when I remember being in NXT and I don’t think the novelty ever wore off on me.” Becky stated.
