Lyra Valkyria: Main Eventing WrestleMania Is My Ultimate Goal In WWE

Lyra Valkyria wants to follow in Becky Lynch's footsteps.

NXT Women's Champion Lyra Valkyria has become one of WWE's brightest stars. She scored a major win when she beat Becky Lynch, someone she has looked up to for years, to win the title at NXT Halloween Havoc 2023, and she continues to reign supreme.

Speaking on WWE Die Woche, Lyra Valkyria was asked to name her goals in WWE.

“My goal in WWE is to go all the way. I can’t imagine being here and not wanting to main-event WrestleMania, so that would be the ultimate goal," Valkyria said.

During the interview, Valkyria was also asked whether she would rather join Raw or SmackDown if she had to decide right now. She noted that she would choose Raw, as that would allow her to keep following in Becky Lynch's footsteps.

“I think I’d have to say Raw. It seems to be the place to be. Becky’s on Raw, so I feel like following her footsteps, it’s the one to be now," Valkyria said.
