WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch had an interview with the Las Cruces Sun News in which she talked about currently playing a heel/face persona and how she wants to main event the upcoming Evolution PPV that’s taking place on October 28th. You can read the full article by going here, but a few snippets of the interview are below:

On her current persona:

“Whatever I am doing right now, I am loving it,” Lynch said in a interview with the Sun-News when asked if she prefers working babyface or heel. “Whatever this is, I love it.”

“Just in general, people around the world … you try and be the nice person, always,” Lynch said about her character’s change. “Everybody. And I think this is so relatable. For the most part, people are generally good and want to do the right thing. And sometimes, it just backfires on you. My dad used to always tell me no good deed goes unpunished. And I think that’s what you’re seeing with Becky right now, that she’s always done the right thing and it hasn’t gotten her where she wants it. And now she’s had enough and she’s saying ‘I don’t care who’s in my way.’

On Jim Ross‘ “Stone Cold” comparison:

“That means the world,” Lynch said about Ross’ compassion. “You can’t get a better comparison than being compared to Stone Cold Steve Austin. He’s one of the greatest. He’s so smart in how he did things, his reactions and how we would sell things. Just his charisma and how we would talk. It was impossible to not want to cheer that guy because he was doing what we all wanted to do. None of us want to take crap from anybody and I think that’s the same thing Becky Lynch is doing right now too. That’s the highest honor you could possibly be given.”

On her hopes for Evolution:

“As soon as it was announced, I said I am going to walk in there as a champion, I am going to the main event show and I am going to walk out as champion,” Lynch said. “The goal is to be the main event of Evolution, have everybody talk about it and have it be the best pay-per-view of all time, and of course, the best main event of all time because Becky Lynch is going to be in it and she’s going to bringing a whole of straight fire.”
