Becky Lynch recently spoke with Mayer Nissim for Digital Spy ahead of tonight’s WWE Hell In A Cell pay-per-view; you can read a few highlights below:

Becky Lynch on why not having a Women’s Hell In A Cell match this year is not a demotion: 

“No, I don’t think so, personally. Say for example you had Bray Wyatt in Hell in Cell last year – I know he’s not in our division, but if he’s not in a Hell in a Cell match this year, it’s not a step backwards.

“Not for him or for the brand or for the company. It’s just a rotation.”

Lynch adds, saying this year’s main feud with Charlotte and Natalya may not call for a Cell match: 

“You can’t overdo it, as well. Or do it for the sake of, ‘Oh there’s a Women’s Revolution so they have to have a Hell in a Cell match’. I think that’s grasping at straws and that’s forcing things. Unfortunately, Charlotte and Natalya, they haven’t had the longest storyline in this circumstance going into Hell in a Cell.

Charlotte has a new character and Natalya has a new character and we’re seeing a different element of both of them. To put them into a Hell in a Cell right off the bat, where do you go from there? So no, I don’t think it’s a step backwards at all to not have a women’s Hell in a Cell match.”
Becky makes her pick for who she’d like to face for the Smackdown Women’s Championship: 

“Charlotte’s my favourite opponent of all time, so obviously the chance to go against her would be amazing, but also I love stepping into the ring with Natalya.

“They’re both extremely capable and talented women that have done a lot for the sport, and I’m excited to watch their match at Hell in a Cell and see who comes out the victor. It’s such a hard question because I wanna take it off Natalya rather than my best friend!”
