The Gorilla Position (above) is featuring an interview with Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch that took place during WWE’s European Tour.
Lynch talked about her character change in recent months and was asked why it maybe took this long for something like this to get displayed on WWE television.
“Honestly, I think it’s an inside job. I think, if you don’t believe in yourself, nobody else is, right? It’s been a constant effort to really work on that and to know, whatever it is you have, is enough. It took a lot of reflection, analyzing what it is that gets you to the top. Even when I was over here in London last year doing ‘The Marine 6’ – which is about to come out November 13 – Shawn Michaels told me, he said, when you go back, go back a star. Go back with confidence. Go with an heir like you belong here.”
Lynch also credits the fans for helping with her character progression.
“They believed in me too. They saw something in. I think a huge turning point was Money in the Bank. Anytime I climbed that ladder, the crowd just went crazy. People saw that the fans were behind me and let’s do something with that. I don’t think they knew that I had all this angst and all these feelings inside of me that have been coming out. It’s all just been just a build up of frustration, but that’s real. That resonates with people. And people can relate to that. People feel that all the time. I think that’s why it’s working.”
