Tiffany Stratton On Facing Becky Lynch: I Proved I Can Hang With One Of The Greatest Of All time

On the September 12 episode of NXT, Becky Lynch came down to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando to challenge Tiffany Stratton for the NXT Women's Championship.

The bout was set up a month ago when Stratton incorrectly named Lynch as a former NXT Women's Champion. Lynch was upset by the comment and clapped back at Stratton, leading to Stratton appearing at WWE Payback.

Speaking on the Ringer's Masked Man Show, Stratton was asked about her changing travel schedule and working with Lynch.

"It's been a crazy two weeks. I had the match with Becky on Tuesday, Saturday and Sunday, I was on the live events, and back to work on Tuesday for TV. I definitely feel like I've learned so much within the past two or three weeks. I feel I've grown as a wrestler, as a performer, at a very fast pace. Not just throughout the two years, but within the last months. I thank Becky for that. Just having that match with Becky, I feel like I proved to everybody and to myself that I can hang with one of the greatest of all time," she said.

When asked if anything surprised her in the bout with Becky, Stratton replied, "The ratings things very much caught me off guard. In the match, I definitely feel like the crowd was so electric. They were there for everything. I really never experienced that in NXT. I've experienced that on the PLEs, but for it to be a Tuesday night and to have the crowd be that electric was so amazing. There was a moment in the match where we were both lying on the ground and they were chanting 'NXT, NXT' and I thought it was amazing. I got goosebumps. That part in the match was the most surprising part for me."

Lynch was victorious in the match, capturing the NXT Women's Title for the first time.
