Becky Lynch was recently a part of a feature for ESPN Women along with GLOW's Alison Brie. During the conversation, Becky explained that she wants women's wrestling to be the coolest thing on TV and talked about the overall growth and changes that WWE's women's division has made.

"Oh yeah, absolutely. What I wanted coming into this career was for women's wrestling to be the coolest thing on TV. I wanted to change the term from 'divas' to ;'women', which we did three years ago, and I wanted to headline the main event at WrestleMania. But I also wanted the audience to demand it, not because we were women but because they cared about our story more than any other story, and they did. Our women's main event was at the end of a seven-hour show, and everybody stayed. That makes me super proud." She explained.
