New WWE SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch did an international media call earlier this week to talk about her big win and promote SmackDown. Courtesy of TalkSport in the UK, below are highlights:
"I don't see a reason why we all couldn't main event WrestleMania next year. That's the next step. Once you've reached one goal you're onto the next and we've got to keep working hard to achieve that. I never really stop to celebrate each step, because I'm always looking to what's next, but it's one thing to get to a certain level but we have to also maintain that. But you never know what will happen, it would be an amazing moment for all of us for sure."
Her idols growing up:
"There were different stages of idols for me. Originally it was Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior and Macho Man when I was kid. Then when I got into wrestling again during the attitude era, the reason I started watching again was Mick Foley. I just loved him, every time he cut a promo I felt so sorry for him, so I always wanted to him win and routed for him. He was the hook that got me, then I saw Lita and I thought she was the coolest thing in the world. Then when I got older even though he wasn't in the WWE, AJ Styles was someone I loved watching. Others too like Tiger Mask, Dynamite Kid and Shawn Michaels too."
WWE having multiple storylines with women at once:
"It's what we've always wanted. I've always asked; Why should there only be one women's storyline? There's always more than one for the guys, why not for the girls? Why is there only one women's match on a pay-per-view? There are a lot of girls who've got issues with each other and we're all fighting for something. I think it's great, the brand extension has been great for that and it brings out that competition, it that's rivalry that brings the best out in people – or the worst."
