• WWE Hall Of Famer Says Becky Lynch Didn’t Want To Turn Heel
During a recent interview with Inside The Ropes, WWE Hall of Famer Edge noted that SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch didn’t want to turn heel.
Below is what the Rated R Superstar said:
“The sense that I got was that she doesn’t really want to be a heel and I don’t blame her at all. When you listen to that reaction, you should just let that happen. Let it go wherever it wants to go rather than force somebody.
People go with (John) Cena, with (Roman) Reigns, it was forced — the flipside of that is if you force this thing that’s happening to try and go heel. You run the risk of apathy and no reaction and you don’t want that. And I think she was smart enough to see that could be the case.
I think it’s possible to be a heel in today’s climate, I think a guy like The Miz proves that because he’s extremely unlikeable. Becky is extremely likeable and people get that sense. The people have been behind her, she’s kind of been that underdog story and they’ve wanted it.”
