• “This is the biggest match you can have in pro-wrestling right now” – Becky Lynch
During an interview with Sports Illustrated, SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch was asked if her Triple Threat Match against Sasha Banks & Bianca Belair will main event today’s WWE Crown Jewel 2021 PPV.
Here’s what “Big Time Becks” said:
“It would be very powerful if we headline the show. This is the biggest match you can have in pro-wrestling right now, regardless of gender.
I think what’s very important, in a place like Saudi Arabia, is to show the women what’s possible. Maybe pro-wrestling catches a young girl’s eye.
If we can have that effect on even one person, it’s huge. Maybe it’s not now, but for the future, you can dream and you can achieve.”
