Becky Lynch praises Big E; open discussions about mental health

Welcome everyone to Saturday at WrestleMania! Tonight at AT&T Stadium in Dallas, Texas, kicks off the most grand two-night event in the history of WrestleMania. At the time of writing, there is still some confusion as to what will be the real highlight of the evening. WWE throws out the words “main event” as if they are organizing a special Oprah and everyone gets it, but tonight there is one match that many fans have talked about (via social media). them main event – Becky Lynch vs. Bianca Beller at the RAW Women’s Championship.

“The main event of the people! Even if people don’t love me anymore. I’ll tell you what your main event is me! “

This week Becky Lynch was on full fire during media rounds, promoting her great title defense. Whether it’s what she told me there during the WrestleMania Media Junket, or what she told Ariel Helvani in a one-on-one seat, Big Time Becks seems pretty adamant that it doesn’t matter what time she and B Yankees are fighting. Even if it means the match for the SmackDown Women’s Championship between Charlotte Fleur and Ronda Rosie closes the show.

“It doesn’t matter. They may continue later. Again, I don’t think they’re the main event. Look, my match will steal the show, my match will be the best, my story was the best, everything I did was better, it’s not even a question. “

“Even if they come last, I don’t care, my things are better, my things are a real major event.”

“I think in terms of history, the only two women who have ever won the WrestleMania main event is the main event of WrestleMania, which will be the last, I think it would be a perfect story. Two losers of the main WrestleMania competition? Two losers of the main competitions in the main event of WrestleMania? ”

“You feel it’s a symbolic gesture that they go last because of Rondo’s name. I don’t think anyone thinks their story is better and that they deserve it. (h \ t WIN \ F4W) ”

While there are still a number of fans who just can’t let go of the past and desperately cling to the times when “Man” came from town to town, there’s no denying that both in the ring and the character working Becky Lynch performed since returning to SummerSlam last year and it’s been something impressive.

The last few weeks in solitude Lynch has been walking down, feeling the incredibly talented and hungry Bianca Beller breathe into her neck. She is on the verge of a mental breakdown and is likely to fail completely if the WWE EST becomes the first woman in three years to beat her at the RAW Women’s Championship.

“This is my identity. That’s who I am. I don’t even know what I would do with my damn hands if I came in if I didn’t have the title, ”Lynch said during the WrestleMania Media Tour. “I can’t think of losing it. I can’t think of that. I don’t think so. I don’t like where I would go if I had to think about losing my title. That’s all I ever knew. That’s all I know for the last three years. “

Much of what Big Time Becks said this week was clearly of a nature. Media clashes like the one I took part in on Friday are the perfect opportunity for Lynch to have fun and sharpen his wit and quick jokes. Unless you blind her like I do.

Becky Lynch has been someone I’ve wanted to talk to for over four years. I never talk about myself, but in this case I needed to thank her. Back in 2018, I was at a low level mentally and professionally. I had just been knocked down by a series of professional setbacks and settled on the fact that I just wasn’t going to go to the places I imagined.

Most of that summer I was thinking about changing occupations, after eight years, trying to make a career as a broadcaster. Needless to say, my confidence, which I still struggle with every day, was at its lowest.

As a longtime WWE fan, I have often resorted to professional wrestling to escape. And junior Rick Ukina was (and remains) a big Becky Lynch fan. Yes, I confess I was one of those annoying Twitter fans in 2018 who shouted for WWE to properly book someone we all knew was extremely talented. We, by the way, were right, but I declined. Finally, that year WWE came to terms with SummerSlam, and Lynch took off like a rocket. She climbed to heights that no woman in WWE history had reached, and millions of fans joined her.

Of course, at the time Lynch ran a lot of media, and that’s when I really started paying attention. Because when she talked about her first days at WWE, she spoke openly about self-doubt. Her lack of confidence. I apologize for becoming the SmackDown Women’s Champion. I was left wondering what she didn’t see in herself, what I saw? What have you seen so much? Then I start thinking, what do I not see in myself?

In short (too late), suddenly there was a spark that I had not felt for a long time. Something told me to give it to him again. So I sent a letter. This letter was the first domino to fall in three years of travel that brought me here. The last few years have been the best of my career. I had the opportunity to do some amazingly interesting things, meet wonderful people and interview a number of people I admire. Including now, Big Time Becky Lynch. I told her all this, and suddenly I was no longer talking to Becky Lynch. I talked to Rebecca Quinn.

I am not the first to tell her such a story. She has inspired many of her fans around the world and continues to do so daily.

“That is the world. And so I think the point is that we forget how pervasive these doubts are. And how close can overcompensation of confidence be to just crippling insecurity, you know? And so we don’t realize that the biggest stars you see on TV are self-doubting and worried that their stuff isn’t good enough. That they are not good enough. What they are old news that they were.

This is a constant battle. And especially when you are being bombed and all of us are constantly bombarded with so much negativity and doubt. You need to find a way to constantly filter this. And my way of doing it is, “Oh, they win. They win. If they make me doubt myself, they will win, and they can’t win because I’m a winner. ” But yes, it’s just such a universal thing. “

Quinn then praised her good friend Big E, who recently suffered a neck fracture in the Friday Night SmackDown episode and has since been something other than a beacon of positivity.

“It’s so good that we’re getting to the point where we’re talking a lot more about mental health because I think a lot of people are struggling with that, but that’s not what you see. So I like that people talk about it and everything that people can draw inspiration from … For example, Big E has been such a champion lately. And I mean, you meet Big E, and he’s a love package. A bad word could not be said about him. One of the most talented people I have ever met in my life, he is loved by the world around him and he also deals with uncertainty, with doubt. But he talks about it. And a person who is a champion and just shows you what is possible and what a wonderful person you can be when touched by these things. Although I don’t think Big E has ever been anything but horseradish. “

On behalf of all those who draw inspiration from both Becky Lynch and Big E and strive to be the best versions of themselves thanks to them, let me say thank you both.

Ray Ripley: “I’m a lone competitor and I was so willing to go it alone and just be the lone wolf I love to be. So the first time we marked like before the match, I thought, “Oh, I really want to do that?” But then she (Liv Morgan) came up to me and asked, “Do you want to put on my shirt?” And I said, “Oh, that’s going to be good. That will be good. I already like this combination. “

Zane herself: “It’s one of the things people don’t understand to be inside WWE, it’s how chaotic it all is. And as sometimes, it’s not about an intercontinental title, no matter, let’s throw it away. Sometimes it’s just dominoes, and sometimes you’re just weird. “

AJ Styles: “You know what, I should be happy (that I was the last match of his The Undertaker), but I’m not.”

Lotteries: “Ooooooooooooooooo … We can do it forever! 24/7, whatever! ”
