WWE RAW Women's Champion Becky Lynch spoke with TV Insider's Scott Fishman about her upcoming WrestleMania opponent, Shayna Baszler. Last Sunday, Baszler ran through her opponents at WWE Elimination Chamber to get a crack at Lynch's title.
Last year, Lynch took on Ronda Rousey and Charlotte, winning both the RAW and SmackDown Women's Championships in the process. Lynch was asked how the two compare, and the champ pointed out a few differences between Baszler and Rousey.
"It's a different animal with Shayna Baszler," Lynch began. "The thing about Shayna is whatever you want to say about it, she has been wrestling longer. She is the one who got Ronda into wrestling because she was such a huge fan. We also haven't seen what she can truly do on RAW. We've seen it on NXT. It's a whole new kettle of fish up on RAW. Ronda is an anomaly. She came in and had this background and pedigree and a worldwide star.
"We all knew what she was capable of. Shayna is a little less well-known, but I think in that realm she had a lot more to prove. Like I said in my promo on Monday, she is looking to rewrite history because normal people like me don't beat trained killers like Ronda. But I did, and I will again. I think she is looking to change that. So she is looking to come in as vicious as she possibly can."
Even though WrestleMania is likely to be pushed back due to the Cornavirus pandemic, Lynch says things are business as usual in the locker room.
"It's business as usual," Lynch confirmed. "I think we're constantly meeting different people. We're constantly shaking hands. We know to use hand sanitizer. We're always exposed to so many different bacteria in our lives and so many different countries. You can't freak out about any of this stuff. You have to continue on and hope for the best."
WWE has already announced Monday's RAW will take place from the WWE Performance Center. No live audience will be in attendance.
