We recently look part in a WWE conference call featuring SmackDown Superstar Becky Lynch. The former SmackDown Women’s Champion has a chance to reclaim the title at this year’s SummerSlam event on August 19, and answered a number of questions on the show, as well as the upcoming all-women Evolution special on October 28, and a variety of other topics.
One of her most interesting answers concerned her dream match for Evolution. Becky stated that a fatal four-way between herself, Charlotte Flair, Bayley, and Sasha Banks would be ideal – but failing that, a showdown with Lita would suit her down to the ground. She elaborated further, citing Lita as her favourite as a teenager, and a major reason for her deciding to pursue a professional wrestling career.
When asked for the male Superstar she’d most like to face, she quickly answered AJ Styles. We’ve been a part of various conference calls with a number of WWE Superstars in the build to SummerSlam, and just about everybody has name-dropped Styles as somebody they’d like to face, or as a favourite opponent they’ve already faced.
Becky also said that in terms of matches she’s not yet had in her WWE career, she’d most like to compete in a Hell in a Cell or TLC match. When pressed on the best pun-master in the WWE locker room (apart from herself), she confessed that Cesaro gives her a run for her money.
Finally, when asked about her pick for the Mae Young Classic, she opted for returning competitor Toni Storm.
