Becky Lynch Discusses AEW As An Alternative To WWE, Why She Keeps Up With AEW Programming

Becky Lynch

Becky Lynch has discussed if she views AEW as competition to WWE and says “of course” she watches the goings-on in All Elite Wrestling.

The Raw Women’s Champion discussed the subject of AEW in a no holds barred interview on The MMA Hour with Ariel Helwani. During their discussion, Becky Lynch turned her attention to her ongoing tension with Charlotte Flair and even addressed WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair and his own recent comments directed at The Man.

Then Lynch was asked her thoughts on AEW and says variety is good for everyone:

“I watch everything. Competition is great, it’s great for the creative because I think it drives everybody. I think Vince works incredibly well when he’s pushed by competition and I think for the stars it gives options. Look if you don’t like vanilla you go with chocolate, if you don’t like strawberry you go for butterscotch. There’s options for everyone, for wrestlers, and it’s great.”

The Man stopped short of calling AEW competition but says she certainly views the company as an alternative:

“I consider them an alternative, I think that’s the best way to put it. I consider them the alternative. Their product is different from our product and so we offer a different product than they do.”

Lynch then reiterates that she watches AEW and explains why she thinks it’s important to:

“Of course [she watches AEW]. I think it’s important and if you love this you try to be in tune with everything that’s happening because then you know what people are doing or people are not doing.”

“So it’s one of those things where we’re all wrestlers, we all love the sport and so sometimes we can come up with the same ideas at the same time so it’s important to know well is somebody doing this, is somebody doing that, how do I be different in this giant sea of content? Because there is a lot of wrestling on TV right now.”
