In a recent interview, Becky Lynch dished on why she won’t appear on the hit E! TV series Total Divas: it’s all about preserving the magic of the ring.
The in-depth interview with Bleacher Report hit all the bases for Lynch, from her childhood days spent fascinated by wrestlers on the small screen to her climb up the WWE ladder to eventually become the SmackDown Women’s Champion. But perhaps most interesting to fans is her reason for avoiding the reality TV show. While Total Divas is hugely popular for providing a behind the scenes look at the lives of WWE’s female wrestlers, Lynch prefers an old-school approach to preserving her character.
“It’s not something I ever wanted for myself,” Lynch admits. “It’s a great opportunity for the women. But I never envisioned myself in that role. And there’s a certain mystique about myself that I’d like to keep. I don’t want to give out too much of Rebecca Quinn.”
The interview also revealed the source of Lynch’s incredible propensity for puns. "I think it's something actually to do with a group of friends I used to hang with," she said. "We were always making puns. It became a thing I love to do.”
"And if you ever don't know what to say, throw a pun in there. It makes it entertaining."
Ever since arriving in the WWE Becky Lynch’s star has been on a steadily upward climb. From her in-ring debut against Summer Rae in her NXT days to becoming the inaugural SmackDown Women's Champion at Backlash in 2016, Lynch has always used her boundless enthusiasm and incredible prowess to wow crowds and become an immediate fan favorite.
Now she’ll be heading team SmackDown at Survivor Series this Sunday. It’s a leadership role that she takes seriously, but also doesn’t let it go to her head or get in the way of having a good time. "I try to make sure that everybody feels comfortable with everybody else. My biggest thing is having good atmosphere."
That good atmosphere will hopefully translate into a fantastic performance come Sunday when Lynch, along with her SmackDown teammates, will take on the Raw roster in the five-on-five Survivor Series elimination tag team match.
