It had recently surfaced that WWE’s Executive Vice President of television production, Kevin Dunn, dislikes Becky Lynch’s Irish accent and intended to give her less promo time going forward. The Smackdown Women’s champion seems to have taken things in her stride and came up with a perfect reply to Dunn on her Twitter account.
Lynch’s tweet read, “For those who didn't understand my accent what I said was, Smackdown. Alexa. Glasgow. Face. Slapped. Off. Her.”
This comment from the Irish Lass Kicker made it quite clear that she didn’t care about who said what and was instead focused on defending her title against Alexa Bliss at Glasgow on the 9th November episode of Smackdown.

Meanwhile, Becky Lynch’s response to Kevin Dunn was well received by her fans who tore into the latter while also praising the superstar. Below are some of the responses posted by Twitterati in response to Becky’s hard-hitting tweet:
@BeckyLynchWWE Your accent it's pretty clear people just need to clean out their ears and learn to listen.— Rhianna| (@RhiannaxxWWE) 28 October 2016
@BeckyLynchWWE only a Dunn-ce wouldn't be able to understand you.— Rory (@ItzyBitzyFitzyz) 29 October 2016
Dunn has been criticised quite heavily on social media for picking on the Smackdown Women’s champion’s natural accent. In fact, a hashtag titled #FireKevinDunn has been trending on Twitter wherein fans are unanimously demanding for Kevin Dunn to be removed from his job.
Ever since she made her WWE debut at NXT, Becky Lynch has been a huge hit among fans and her popularity has only increased in recent times. At present, she is the biggest women’s superstar on the Smackdown roster, the brand to which she was roped in during the 2016 WWE Draft.
The match between Lynch and Alexa Bliss for the Smackdown Women’s championship was scheduled to happen at the No Mercy pay-per-view earlier this month but had to be postponed due to an injury to the Irish Lass Kicker.
