Becky Lynch has emerged as one of the elite main eventers in WWE since the planned heel turn at SummerSlam 2018, when she attacked Charlotte Flair after losing in the SmackDown Women's Championship match.
Of course, WWE's plan to turn Lynch heel didn't work in the slightest. Rather, the fans began cheering extensively for Lynch - and even when she cut heel promos - the WWE Universe stayed on her side.
WWE had no choice but to turn Lynch babyface, and she won this year's women's Royal Rumble event. She competed against Charlotte and Ronda Rousey in the first ever women's main event at WrestleMania - defeating both to take home the Raw and SmackDown Women's Championships.
But despite all of her success, Lynch admitted in a recent interview with Fair Game (h/t Ringside News), that she finds it difficult to watch her own matches - and that she simply focuses on moving forward.
"I have a hard time watching my matches. I feel like — and maybe this is wrong, I kind of feel like I’m in the moment knowing how it’s going because you can hear from the crowd.
So I feel like at this stage I know what I can correct and I know what to do. If the crowd hasn’t reacted the way that I wanted them to, that’s something that I can hear and know and understand why. So I like to leave the matches in the past and not dwell on it and on to the next one."
You hear a lot of stories about Hollywood stars refusing to watch their own movies and television shows. But for professional athletes/WWE superstars, they often review their own film to see how they can get better.
But it's not necessary for Lynch, who's been in the wrestling business for over a decade. Top-tier wrestlers like the Raw Women's Champion are able to move on each match in short time - knowing what they gave to do to get better. Lynch has only improved more and more both in the ring and on the microphone.
What This Means
Lynch's rise from mid-card to main event status has been one of the top stories in WWE over the past year. She's put on some of the top matches in recent memory, and her feuds with the likes of Rousey, Charlotte and now Lacey Evans have been top-notch. At this rate, it's safe to say that Lynch is only going to grow more and more as a main event talent. The best has yet to come.
