Becky Lynch On Fighting For Gender Equality, Wanting To Be WWE’s Top Dog
WWE RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch was recently interviewed by TV Insider to talk about several professional wrestling topics. Lynch discussed fighting for gender equality in WWE and wanting to be the top dog within the company, amongst other things. Here are the highlights:
Gender equality in WWE:
It’s all amazing. Everything has been amazing, but it’s all about how we can keep it going. How can we entertain people? What’s the next thing we can do? How can we push this forward? How can we make sure there is no difference with the genders and that people don’t care about that anymore? They only care about great storylines, being entertained — the characters and who wins and who loses and having great matches regardless of gender.
Just keeping that going. That’s my main focus. How can I be the top dog in WWE? There is no real time to sit back and relax. But then when you get to meet kids, you realize that is the most important part of this job. The impact you can have on someone. It’s really doing what you love and going after what you want to go after and hopefully that will inspire others to do the same.
Wanting to be at the top:
It doesn’t matter where I go. I’m going straight to the top. And god help whoever gets in my way on either brand. I just want good wars, good fights, good matches, good stories. Make people interested and get them to care. When there is competition and interest, it always drives business. It’s about how we can be at the top of the industry and the greatest of all time. You do set goals — sometimes unrealistic goals like main-eventing WrestleMania or being on the cover of a video game. Then you realize, it’s not so unrealistic.
