• Becky Lynch On If She Wants To Go After The Fiend’s Universal Title
During a recent interview with Sam Roberts, RAW Women’s Champion “The Man” Becky Lynch was asked if she would like to go after the Universal Championship (which is currently held by “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt).
Below is what Becky said:
“Here’s the thing, I don’t know if that’s necessary because in my eyes this [Raw Women’s Title] is the top title in the company. Not in my eyes — hell, this is the top title in the company. I’m the one who defends it the most. I am the one who’s made it the most and yeah, there’s no doubt about it. This is the top title in the company.”
The Fiend won the Universal Championship by defeating Becky’s fiancé, Seth Rollins, at WWE Crown Jewel 2019.
