On episode 378 of The Steve Austin Show, WWE SmackDown Live Women's Champion Becky Lynch talked about who she travels with on the road for WWE SmackDown Live, looking forward to eventually turn heel, and up-and-coming female performers in NXT.
"I used to travel with Charlotte, but then we got separated, so now I'll travel with Alexa." Lynch added, "I'm not a complete loner. I like having people around, but I like my own space too. Maybe I am a loner."
Although Lynch enjoys being a babyface, she is looking forward to turning heel. Apparently, Lynch was always a heel on the indies.
"At the moment, I like working baby. I'm excited for when I turn heel eventually though, when it's time. When I worked on the indies I never worked baby. Hated it. Always worked heel, so it's weird for me that I came here and that was a baby."
When asked how she has connected to the audience, Lynch attributed it to her energy and passion for professional wrestling.
"I think it's that energy. I don't think it's anything tangible. I think it's a passion or I feel like they're very protective over me as well, which is another thing. I hear a lot of people feel a lot of negativity on their social media and everything like that. I can't say, thankfully, that I have much of that. They're protective and I think it's just my energy. They know that I'm passionate about it because they know that I've worked hard for this. And I think it's a genuineness. They can sense that or something. They can sense that it's real because people pick up on that stuff."
As for up-and-coming female talents, Lynch named Peyton Royce, Billie Kay, and Asuka as great NXT performers.
"I think Peyton Royce and Billie Kay are two girls that are really good and only scratched the surface with those two. And then, Asuka is phenomenal. I got to wrestle with her in Japan. She was excellent."
