Steve Austin: Becky Lynch Reminds Me A Lot Of Myself

Steve Austin has high praise for Becky Lynch.

Appearing on Sirius XM’s Fight Nation, Austin was asked about the comparisons many fans have made in regards to him and Becky Lynch.

"She does remind me a lot of myself," said Austin. "If you line up that women's roster and you said, 'Hey, I want you to pick my next breakout superstar.' I don't think you're going to pick out Becky Lynch. And I damn sure know you weren't going to pick me out of a lineup. She has willed herself, worked her ass off, studied the game, gotten hot, then cooled off but she's got a little attitude behind her. She got ticked off and said, 'Hey man, I'm gonna be a star.' Vince McMahon wants everybody there to be a star. He's going to set you up and give you opportunities. She made the most of those opportunities."

Austin continued, "When they tried to slam the door on her, she kicked the door down and burst right through it. I love what she's doing. I like her swagger. She's the hottest thing going right now. She's not a person dwelling on 'this is going to be the most athletic match in the world.' She's a great worker but it's character driven. The Man. I love that gimmick. I think it's an awesome gimmick and it's money."

Lynch has previously addressed comparisons to Austin, calling it "quite an honor" to be mentioned alongside the WWE Hall of Famer.
