Becky Lynch is the current RAW Women's Champion and is arguably the most popular women's wrestler in the world today. She's currently involved in a feud with Lacey Evans, who is one of the top rising heels on the RAW brand. Becky had defeated Lacey Evans at Money in the Bank and Stomping Grounds to retain her RAW Women's Championship.
The heart of the matter
Becky Lynch was a special guest alongside Alison Brie, as both ladies sat down to talk about their lives growing up and of course, professional wrestling. Becky went into detail on how she plans to women's wrestling the coolest product in all of Sports Entertainment.
"Oh yeah, absolutely. What I wanted coming into this career was for women's wrestling to be the coolest thing on TV. I wanted to change the term from "divas" to "women," which we did three years ago. And I wanted to headline the main event at WrestleMania. But I also wanted the audience to demand it, not because we were women but because they cared about our story more than any other story. And they did. Our women's main event was at the end of a seven-hour show, and everybody stayed. That makes me super proud."
Becky Lynch will be teaming up with her real-life boyfriend and current WWE Universal Champion Seth Rollins to face Lacey Evans and Baron Corbin this Sunday at Extreme Rules. The match will be fought under "Winner Takes All" stipulation, which means if Becky or Seth are pinned or submitted, they will both lose their championships to Baron Corbin and Lacey Evans.
