Becky Lynch doesn't want to brush hair and sing songs.
Friends have gotten Becky Lynch nowhere in WWE. When she used to pal around with Charlotte Flair, she was looked at as a second fiddle player. When she turned on Charlotte at SummerSlam 2018, she transformed herself into The Man, a no-nonsense ass-kicker who believed she was on a different level than anyone on the roster.
Becky used her new attitude to spit venom at everyone on social media, drumming up interest with those she had already battled, those she would battle, and those who she will never step foot in the ring with. In an interview with Cathy Kelley, Lynch discussed not playing favorites in who she targets.
"We are in the conflict business. I can sit around and talk about being grateful, singing kumbaya, and brushing their hair, but that's not what makes this interesting," said Lynch. "What makes this interesting is me running my mouth on why I want to beat every single woman in that locker room, and any guy who wants to come at me too. That's the part I focus on. Why do I hate everybody? I want someone to step up to the level, get in my face, and make history with me. I want a war for the ages, for the people."
Now that Becky is at the top of the mountain, she knows that it's tougher to make friends in the business.
"They might have believed that I couldn't achieve it and they didn't want me to know that I could do it. That's a thing that can happen often; when you become a threat to people, they don't want you to succeed. Everybody wants to be your friend when you're doing okay and on their level. But when you get above and are a threat, it's a whole different cattle of fish," she said. "That's why I wear yellow and black. It's a reminder to me that every time I go out there, there have been so many people who have chopped me down along the way and I'm coming for them."
Lynch made history at WrestleMania 35, taking part in the first-ever WrestleMania women's main event and walking away victorious, capturing the Raw and SmackDown Women's Titles. Her mom was in the New York crowd that night and Becky holding two belts served as a reminder to her mom that she should not be doubted.
"My mom didn't want me to wrestle. Years ago, she asked me to quit. We had all these fights about me wrestling and what my plan was and where this was going. For her to be at WrestleMania and witness that, it was pretty special. Don't doubt me. Nobody. Not even me own mother."
Next up for Lynch will be Lacey Evans, who she previously defeated at WWE Money in the Bank. The two are set for a rematch at WWE Stomping Grounds.
