WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with NewstalkSport in Ireland. The full interview is at this link and below are highlights:

Being champion:

"It still doesn't feel real. The next day over breakfast, I wrote everything down but it still hasn't hit me. Today, I did a children's hospital visit, and when the kids saw the title they got so excited. When they were able to hold it, that made it a bit little more real for me, seeing their excitement holding a title belt, because that's how I feel. It meant a lot that I was the first. You go down in the history books. The big ones have eluded me, but this meant everything to me."

Feeling pressure as the first woman drafted for SmackDown:

"I feel pressure, but it's a good pressure. It's one that I feel I'm ready for and one that I'm destined for... I just want to make SmackDown Live the brand to watch and especially make the Women's division the one to watch. I will do everything in my power to make that happen."

Her time outside of WWE:

"I appreciate when people recognise me and come up to me. I find it that when I'm not in the ring, I like to keep a pretty low profile. Outside of wrestling I don't really like being the centre of attention. I like the quiet life. Apart from wrestling, I work out, I go home, I watch movies and drink Barry's Tea. Being recognised or not, it really doesn't make much of a difference."

Finn Balor:

"[He] is the reason I'm here. He's a great trainer. He's had such an impact on my life. I had given up wrestling for seven years and he convinced me to go back. He had a huge impact."

"He's going to be back and be better than ever. He was two weeks of surgery and is three weeks ahead of schedule for where he should be."
