Former SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch recently had an interview with Al Arabiya English where she talked about different wrestling topics. Lynch was asked about Ronda Rousey potentially joining WWE with recent rumours that Rousey is training with Brian Kendrick for a career in pro-wrestling, and about the possibility of other MMA stars joining WWE.
Becky says that she would be happy if women’s wrestling gets more attention that it deserves if Ronda and other MMA stars join WWE. She also says if the former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Ronda will have to prove herself in a whole different way if she wants to come to the WWE.
“I feel like if it’s going to get more eyes on us, then that’s wonderful. What I want to see is women who are passionate about this, and that they’re doing it for the right reasons, and that they care about this business because we have been busting our tails for the past four years to make sure that women are seen in a different way and women are seen in a different light.
“And of course, Ronda, with all she’s done for UFC, would be a great asset. I can’t diminish her accomplishments at all because she’s incredible in her own right. But this is our sport, and coming in here you have to prove yourself in a whole different way.”
