• Backstage News On Becky Lynch Turning Babyface At SummerSlam
During a recent interview on the Out Of Character podcast, former RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch talked about turning babyface & more.
Below are the highlights:
On Triple H pitching the idea of turning her babyface at SummerSlam 2022:
“I had talked to [Triple H] a little bit before and he was like, ‘How do you feel about being a heel?’ and I was like, ‘Honestly, it’s fun I like it. I feel like I’m maybe more naturally inclined to be a babyface, I think people like me better as a babyface.’
So, he was like, ‘I feel like we are swimming upstream keeping you as a heel.’
Yeah, I agree and so then the creative was laid out and I was like, ‘Yeah, that sounds awesome.’”
On Triple H becoming the Head Of Creative in WWE:
“Obviously, he has a great mind for it. His track record with what he’s done with women in NXT, I’m a product of that. I got to be in that system and become who I am today and he’s really championed just women’s wrestling, in general.
And not looking at it as women’s wrestling, it’s just this is a story, these are two people in a story, how do we make this story good? And so that’s what I love about it, just how do we make the story good no matter what the gender is.”
