Becky Lynch has claimed that her current run as Raw Women’s Champion is the most fun she’s had in her career.
At SummerSlam 2021, Becky Lynch returned to action for the first time in more than a year. Although, the Becky Lynch that returned, was very different to the one that announced that she was taking time off to have a baby in May 2020.
At the time, Lynch stood at the top of Raw’s women’s division, in the midst of the longest Raw Women’s Championship reign in history. Lynch had climbed to the top of the mountain as ‘The Man,’ an anti-hero in a similar mould to Stone Cold Steve Austin almost two decades previously.
However, once Lynch returned and defeated Bianca Belair for the SmackDown Women’s Title in August 2021, it quickly became clear that she had reinvented herself. The Irish star morphed into the ostentatious Big Time Becks, letting anyone and everyone know that she was the biggest star around.
Speaking in a new interview with Colin Murray on Midnight Meets, Lynch reflected on her current run, calling it the best of her career.
“I don’t know where I lay [babyface or heel], it’s certainly wouldn’t say an antihero, especially with the ridiculousness of this character sometimes. But I do love it. I’m probably having more fun and, I think, doing the best work of my career.
Even if it’s just from a personal standpoint, if nobody else feels like that, so at the end of the day, that’s all that matters. It’s not all that matters, but I am enjoying it and I feel like I’m doing good work and helping create a division. That is spectacular. I’m so proud of what we’re doing. Well, I think we have fantastic women and I think we’ve elevated them and are going to continue to do so and I think the possibilities are endless when you have a group like that,”
Becky Lynch is currently preparing for a huge rematch with Bianca Belair at WrestleMania 38. On March 28th episode of Monday Night Raw, the pair clashed as Lynch tried to cut off her rival’s signature braid. But it was Belair who got the last laugh, cutting off chunks of the champion’s hair.
