Lillian Garcia welcomes Becky Lynch to the show.
Garcia congratulates Lynch on her Smackdown Women’s Championship. Lynch says she’s much more comfortable with the role of Champion this time around. She says that when she was the Champion the first time she had an apologetic nature; she felt the need to almost apologize to people for the fact that she was the Champion and she’s not sure why that was. She was overly nice and was afraid to step on people’s toes, and she doubted if she was good enough to hold it.
She points out that at Survivor Series she was the Smackdown Live Women’s Champion but Nikki Bella was named team Captain, and that bothered her a bit. She loves Nikki and appreciates her role in the business, but she didn’t understand why the Champion wasn’t the team captain.
This time around there’s none of that doubt. She’s not sure how much of a role the WWE Universe played in her Title win but she knew that the audience wanted her to be the Champion at this point, and that certainly helped her confidence.
Lynch informs that when she was brought into WWE developmental and NXT she was somewhat broken and had confidence issues because she hadn’t wrestled much leading up to that point. She points out that Dusty Rhodes quickly became a big fan of hers because he found polished talents boring. He loved to work with talents where he knew he’d be able to uncover something or bring out a new part of that performer, and that was the case with Lynch.
