A guest on the latest edition of The Bro Show on Sportskeeda, former WWE and WCW writer Vince Russo wondered why Becky Lynch chose to be nicknamed The Man. "It hasn't been long since the women's revolution took place.
It is true that women have made an effort to obtain the same rights and privileges as men, but I do not understand why Becky Lynch chose to be nicknamed The Man. A woman should be proud of being one. This is the fulcrum of the women's revolution," explained Russo.
Vince analyzed WWE’s inability to create new global icons: "Who did legends like The Undertaker and John Cena pass the baton to? These guys didn't help the young talents stand out. They just disappeared. Taker retired for age reasons, while Cena has become one of Hollywood's most popular actors.
When Vince McMahon needs big names for WrestleMania or an event in Saudi Arabia, he offers them big bucks and they get back into the ring. Often and willingly, they take the place of wrestlers who work full-time. The same concept is also applicable to The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin."
The last two years have been very difficult for WWE, forced to manage the effects of the pandemic. A lot of talents and behind-the-scenes insiders had to pack. Ever since she returned to WWE at SummerSlam, Becky Lynch has been showing off a top notch right from the start despite her pregnancy.
The Irish superstar will face Lita in the upcoming pay-per-view, Elimination Chamber, which will be staged on February 19 in Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). During her Stamford career, Becky has won the SmackDown Women 's Championship four times and the Raw Women' s Championship twice, as well as being the only one to have held both titles simultaneously.
Lynch also won the 2019 edition of the women's Royal Rumble match and participated in the first women's Tables matches, Last Woman Standing matches and TLC matches in history.
Sasha Banks: "The difference between WWE and independent federations is ..."
Appearing in Mark Andrews: My Love Letter to Wrestling, Sasha Banks talked about the difference between independent federations and WWE as well as her passion for wrestling. On the difference between the independent federations and the WWE, she said: "It was so difficult at the beginning because I arrived that I knew how to fight but then I didn't know how to do it, at least not with the WWE style.
There is much more here. We are a TV show, number one, so we need to understand the audience where we perform in front of the camera. It's scary when you have to be in an area where you have thousands of fans screaming. You have the whole world watching you.
There are people who say: Go, go, go. You have the referee. You have the person you face in the ring. In independent federations the situation was like Do whatever There was nothing else. It was like: Let me superkick because I'm doing my favorite moves.
You did everything smoothly. When you get to WWE everything is completely different, from indie to NXT. That was completely different too, but with Raw and SmackDown there's really no comparison." On her passion for pro wrestling she said: "I love pro wrestling because I can be anything I want.
I can become a superhero, an actress, a stuntman or a clown but also a writer, a producer and a role model. I can be anything I want thanks to wrestling. It's more than just making the moves in the ring. The beauty also lies in meeting new people.
Do interviews. You meet legends like Stone Cold Steve Austin. You can really make all your wrestling dreams come true. I always wanted to be so much more when I was a little girl because I was nobody. I watched wrestling and thought, These people are the best.
They are over the top. There are so many weird people too and I felt like I was like them too. So I decided to take this route. I love the fight. I also like MMA. It's crazy that we have such incredible fans. They are always there, all over the world to support us by doing the craziest thing in the world, fighting. In my opinion there is nothing better."
