Becky Lynch Comments on the Opportunities NXT Gives to Their Female Talent
Newsweek held a recent interview with Becky Lynch and one of the topics discussed included her thoughts on NXT giving opportunities and creative freedom to their female talent and a past incident in her career where she was told to wrestle “like a girl.”
“We were given more time. We would have a match and it would be good and we would prove ourselves and get more time, and then with that more time we would prove ourselves again and so on and so forth. I remember being told to ‘move like a girl.’ What the hell does that mean? I’m a girl and I’m moving, you know? And to go from that to being told that girls can’t do this or that to now where none of that is an issue. You’re just told to go out there and do your job. Your job is to entertain people and be a damn good wrestler. Be that, go do that and of course that’s what we ended up doing.”
