WWE Raw Women's Champion Becky Lynch Compares Shayna Baszler To Ronda Rousey

Lynch knows a bit about both MMA competitors...

WWE Raw Women's champion Becky Lynch recently took part in an interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, in which she was asked about the number one contender to her championship, Shayna Baszler.

The two are scheduled to meet at WrestleMania 36 (whenever that may be), and Lynch was asked how she would compare Baszler to one of her previous rivals, Ronda Rousey.

"It’s a different animal with Shayna Baszler," said Lynch. "The thing about Shayna is whatever you want to say about it, she has been wrestling longer. She is the one who got Ronda into wrestling because she was such a huge fan. We also haven’t seen what she can truly do on Raw. We’ve seen it on NXT. It’s a whole new kettle of fish up on Raw. Ronda is an anomaly. She came in and had this background and pedigree and a worldwide star.

"We all knew what she was capable of. Shayna is a little less well-known, but I think in that realm she had a lot more to prove. Like I said in my promo on Monday, she is looking to rewrite history because normal people like me don’t beat trained killers like Ronda. But I did, and I will again. I think she is looking to change that. So she is looking to come in as vicious as she possibly can."
