Ahead of her Raw Women's Championship match against Natalya at SummerSlam, Becky Lynch made it clear how disappointed she is in the lack of challengers.
Lynch has faced most of the top female superstars on the WWE roster, but she's obviously not content enough with the quantity of challengers up to this point, and Lynch is hoping something will change soon.
In a sit-down interview before the big match in Toronto, "The Man" took a shot at the WWE roster for not coming up to challenge her. Here is what she had to say about the matter (transcriptions via Ringside News).
"I was going to say I’ve got plenty of people coming for ‘The Man,’ but do I really? It’s kind of a disappointment," Lynch said. "I don’t think I have enough people stepping up to ‘The Man,’ stepping up to the top dog, stepping up to the one that proved that anything can be done in this industry...You realize I’m a freakin’ WrestleMania main eventer."
Lynch suggested that if a superstar can simply put their "mind to it," they "change this industry." She also called out those whose "feelings are hurt," and suggested that they join her in giving the fans "what they want."
You can watch the full interview below.
Lynch has been the model of hard work, determination and perseverance during her main event run. She won this year's women's Royal Rumble and headlined WrestleMania 35 - defeating Ronda Rousey and Charlotte Flair. And despite all of this success, Lynch is not satisfied and has the desire to keep striving for better. That's the sign of a true winner.
Another reason for Lynch's success as a main event superstar? She isn't afraid to speak her mind, especially on social media. Time and time again, Lynch has gotten the better of her fellow superstars, and most of the the time, they seem to take it rather than dish it back to The Man.
Since defeating Rousey, Lynch has bounced around numerous short-term feuds, and it seems like WWE is still working on finding the right fit for her. Until Rousey returns, Lynch may have no choice but to keep going through various opponents. After all, Rousey is among the very few female stars who've "stepped up" to Lynch.
What This Means
It'll be interesting to see what happens with Lynch after SummerSlam. Her program with Natalya should last a bit longer, but until Rousey returns, there aren't many options for Lynch when it comes to long-term feuds. WWE has gone through so many opponents for her in such short time, so it's anybody's guess what will happen after the rivalry with Natalya.
