In case you didn't know...

Lynch is the inaugural SmackDown Live women's champion, winning the title at the 2016 Backlash pay per view. Recently, Lynch turned heel, attacking her former friend Charlotte Flair, after Flair won her seventh women's championship. Despite this villainous turn, many fans have sided with the Lass-kicker.

Ronda Rousey made her on-screen debut at the 2018 Royal Rumble, after years in the UFC. She teamed with Kurt Angle to defeat Triple H and Stephanie McMahon at WrestleMania 34. At Summerslam 2018, Rousey won the RAW Women's Championship, defeating Alexa Bliss in four minutes.

The heart of the matter

Speaking on the 'In This Corner' podcast, Becky was far from humble when asked who's Armbar was better.

"Me. Me undoubtedly. Here’s why. Her’s is of course—have you been in a straight armbar before? Very painful. Very painful, it will snap your arm. But from my location, I can snap your arm, and choke you out with my leg at the same time. It’s a double whammy."

The Lass-Kicker was also asked about fellow Irish-fighter Conor McGregor, and his chances at UFC 229 against Russian fighter, Khabib Nurmagomedov.

“I think he’s been working so hard with the wrestling, and you can see that with the athletes he’s brought into SBG. I think [Conor] might just catch him because Khabib’s stand-up game isn’t—he’s a great wrestler—I don’t know.”

What's next?

It would be interesting to see how a feud between the two would go, and who's armbar would truly be better.


Expect Becky to continue her feud against Charlotte Flair, with the pair having a title match at the upcoming Hell In A Cell pay per view.

At the same show, Alexa Bliss will invoke her rematch clause and take on Rousey for the RAW Women's Championship.
