The key takeaway from Becky Lynch’s 35 minute pre-Royal Rumble interview

If you’ve got approximately 35 minutes, the above WWE Now interview with Becky Lynch is a good watch. It covers a lot of familiar ground concerning Lynch’s rise and the creation of The Man, but both Bex & interviewer Cathy Kelley are charismatic, entertaining personalities, and there are fresh insights and new topics covered. If you’re like me, you’ll also enjoy watching Lynch seamlessly slide in between reality and fiction, herself and her character.

She’s very good at it.

But if you don’t have the time, there’s one key takeaway. I’m certain The Man would tell you this is the important thing to pay attention to from this chat, and the whole weekend. She brings it up twice, once in response to a direct question at around the 11 minute mark...

Kelley: So WrestleMania 35, this goal of the women main eventing a WrestleMania seems closer than ever...

Lynch: Me main eventing a WrestleMania. Sorry, continue...

Kelley: You main eventing a WrestleMania. Do you believe that that will happen...

Lynch: Yes.

Kelley: ... this year?

Lynch: Yep. There’s not a doubt in my mind. There’s not a doubt in my mind. It’s gonna happen. I picture it every single day. All day, everyday, it’s all I picture. Gives me good feels. It has to happen - has to happen! The world wants to see it - the world wants to see it.

Kelley: Do you think it will be you vs. Ronda Rousey?

Lynch: Yes. Yes I do. And I don’t know how that’s gonna happen. Here’s the thing. I don’t know how that’s gonna happen, because tomorrow, I’m fighting for my SmackDown Women’s championship. I need my SmackDown Women’s championship back. So I don’t know what that means. I don’t know how we get there. But by god it’s gonna happen.

And again at the end of the interview...

Kelley: Do you have any final words you want to say to the WWE Universe?

Lynch: Gonna main event WrestleMania, and it all starts tomorrow.

I’m not gonna doubt her.
