On the latest episode of the Out of Character Podcast with Ryan Satin, Becky Lynch spoke about how her return came about and some of the criticism she and the company have received for her beating Belair in under 30 seconds.
“Look, it was very last minute. I mean, very last minute,” Lynch said. “It’s so hard, especially when you’ve been a babyface for so long and the crowd likes you, and they’re indebted to you, and then you’ve gone away and they’ve seen some of the stuff that I’ve gone through in the year. I’m a new mom, I’m coming back and there’s excitement, and this girl who’s been awesome, that’s a great rivalry. We like both of these guys, so how do we make them not like one of them? She’s a company girl, let’s do this quickly.
“I know a lot of people were upset. ‘Well, if they were going to do this then they should’ve had a long match.’ Well, if we had a long match then I beat her, then I just beat her. Then that’s not good, that’s not good for her. But if she’s robbed and we take something from her and she doesn’t expect it, then we want to see her succeed? Oh, we want to see her succeed? We don’t want the person with it to have it anymore and we want that person to succeed? I think we’re doing just fine. It’s such a weird thing, it’s like, ‘I don’t like Becky as a heel, she’s so annoying.’ Like, what? Okay, I think that’s the point, bro. Or like, ‘Why would they do this to Bianca? I wanted her to win.’ Yeah, good, this is what we want.”
