Becky Lynch gives Ronda a bit of praise.
"The Man" Becky Lynch and the current RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey have been at odds for months and things picked back up at the 2018 TLC pay-per-view earlier this month where Ronda Rousey interfered in the Triple-Threat TLC SmackDown Live Women's Title match involving Becky, Charlotte Flair and Asuka. Ronda pushed Becky and Charlotte off a ladder which led to Asuka becoming champion.
Ronda and Becky were feuding on social media prior to that aforementioned pay-per-view and their back and forth has not stopped coming out of it. TMZ Sports caught up with the former champ Becky Lynch recently and asked "The Man" who she'd like to main event WrestleMania 35 with and how impressed is she by what Ronda Rousey has done thus far in WWE.
“I wouldn’t mind slapping the head off Ronda Rousey. We have unfinished business.” Becky continued when asked has she been impressed by Ronda Rousey thus far in WWE, “Absolutely, absolutely. She’s incredible. What she did for women’s MMA is incredible. What she did in Judo was incredible. What’s she doing here is incredible. She just hasn’t faced a real test, yet.”
During the holidays Becky traveled back home to Ireland and trained with Conor McGregor's coach John Kavanagh. Becky reflected on that experience and said that Kavanagh put her through the ringer.
“I have not, no [Met with Conor McGregor]. I was just training at SBG over Christmas -- I went down there the first day I got there -- John Kavanagh put me through the ringer. It was great.” She said.
Tomorrow night, SmackDown is taping their New Years show in Pittsburgh at the PPG Paints Arena. Spoilers and the major happenings coming out of the tapings will be covered here on Fightful.
