RAW & SmackDown Women's Champion Becky Lynch recently spoke with MassLive.com to promote the May 19 WWE Money In the Bank pay-per-view, where she will pull double duty against Charlotte Flair and Lacey Evans. Becky said she has become the top dog of WWE by playing the character she knows best - herself.
"I was asked last week, why would I take on two competitors at Money in the Bank? I have two belts. I made my way to WrestleMania by fighting twice in one night," Lynch said. "I'm not the underdog anymore. I'm the top dog."
She continued, "People always said my dreams were unrealistic, to go from the WrestleMania pre-show (in 2017) to the main event. It was a matter of breaking through, and I accepted that until I made it happen."
Regarding her quick rose to the top, Becky recalled the 2018 Money In the Bank pay-per-view and said it all began there. Lynch said that's when her status as perpetual "underdog" began to give way to a newfound sense of confidence, no matter the outcome of a match. She said fans were sick of her being overlooked by the company.
"Every time I stepped foot on the ladder, to win that contract [to receive a championship opportunity], the crowd went mad. It showed everyone that I have a bond with the audience. That maybe they were sick of me being overlooked. And I really attribute that to everything else that happened," Becky recalled.
