Becky Lynch: ‘Business As Usual’ For WWE Despite Coronavirus Concerns
The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is impacting practically every facet of life, including professional wrestling. With the status of WWE WrestleMania 36 up in the air, there’s no way to know what the future holds. WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch, in an interview with Scott Fishman of TV Insider, discussed her mindset about the pandemic. “It’s business as usual,” said Lynch via Fishman. “I think we’re constantly meeting different people. We’re constantly shaking hands. We know to use hand sanitizer. We’re always exposed to so many different bacteria in our lives and so many different countries. You can’t freak out about any of this stuff. You have to continue on and hope for the best.”
In the interview, Lynch also discussed her upcoming match with Shayna Baszler and how her mindset about this WWE WrestleMania differs from how she felt about last year’s event.
“‘It’s a different animal with Shayna Baszler,'” said Lynch via Fishman. “‘We also haven’t seen what she can truly do on Raw. We’ve seen it on NXT. It’s a whole new kettle of fish up on Raw. Ronda [Rousey] is an anomaly….We all knew what she was capable of. Shayna is a little less well-known, but I think in that realm she had a lot more to prove. Like I said in my promo on Monday, she is looking to rewrite history because normal people like me don’t beat trained killers like Ronda. But I did, and I will again. I think she is looking to change that. So she is looking to come in as vicious as she possibly can.'”
