• Becky Lynch Says Pro-Wrestling Is About Storytelling, Not Moves & Flips
During a recent press junket in the United Kingdom, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch talked about what pro-wrestling is about.
Here’s what she said:
“There’s so many lessons. One, I think, is that the connection with the crowd is the most important thing. It’s more important than moves, it’s more important than anything, being able to connect with an audience.
I feel like that is something I got fairly early on – whether or not I was any good, it was just being able to connect with an audience. And two, was story above all else.
I think sometimes, as wrestlers who love wrestling, we want to have a good wrestling match in spite of story. Does that make sense? That can sometimes convolute things. And, really, the things that everybody remembers is story, it’s not moves. It’s not flips. It’s not Canadian Destroyers. It’s a story, and how that whole story makes you feel.
And that’s what we do, we’re storytellers. I think I learned that fairly early on that that’s more important.”
