Becky Lynch defeated Sonya Deville on this week’s episode of Monday Night RAW to book her slot in the Women’s Money in the Bank ladder match at the July 1st pay-per-view event at the O2 Arena in London, England.
In a post-match RAW Exclusive interview, Lynch shared how competing in the United Kingdom is a special experience and reminisced about her earliest days in the industry. She said,
“I missed the last premium live event that we did in the U.K., so this will be my first premium live event in the U.K. That holds a lot of history for me. I remember when I was 15 years old and taking a plane over to London and staying there with my uncle before I went off on a one-week wrestling summer camp. I remember taking the train and imagining what life would be like as a WWE Superstar, and never really imagining that I could have gotten to where I’ve already gotten in my career…”
‘The Man’ then noted how winning Money in the Bank is the only accomplishment that eludes her in her illustrious career. She said,
“…But there is one last thing that you said, and that’s winning the Money in the Bank contract. Every ladder match that I’ve been in, I’ve been the last person on that ladder, holding the briefcase. It has always been in my fingertips, but it’s always slipped away from me. So that’s haunted me. It’s the one thing that I have left to do. It’s the one thing that I can do to feel like my career has been complete.”
In trademark Becky Lynch fashion, ‘The Man’ proceeded to issue a thinly veiled threat to Zoey Stark, who cost her the match against Trish Stratus at Night of Champions.
“The icing on the cake there is that if Zoey Stark gets into this match, then I get to beat her up with ladders, and it’s sanctioned, and nobody can stop me, and nobody can arrest me. I said I was gonna ruin her life, and I’m gonna ruin her life.”
Stark also qualified for the match on Monday night, defeating Natalya.
