Ronda Rousey and Becky Lynch are set to battle eventually and WrestleMania could very well be the perfect location. In the meantime, both Lynch and Rousey remain busy on their respective brands. However, there is still a big rivalry between the two. It’s a war of words, but Lynch would love to eventually make it physical.
Becky Lynch spoke to Uproxx about Ronda Rousey’s comments about while she was in UFC, Lynch was in “Clown College.” Obviously, Lynch didn’t appreciate that sentiment at all. In fact, she went on to discuss how their differences have actually given her an advantage.
“Well, I’ve never gotten to set foot in the ring – apart from beating her up, I’ve never had a match with Ronda, so I couldn’t tell you what that’s like. All I can tell you is everything that I’ve worked for, all the jobs that I’ve taken to get me where I am, to pave the way for where I am and pay my own way to get where I am, they made me who I am, and that’s why there’s been such a groundswell.”
“That’s why this is so relatable. Because not everybody is born an athlete and not everybody has a parent who encourages them to be the absolute best in their sport and in their career choice. Some people have to overcome obstacles. They have to overcome the fact that their parents don’t want them to do what they want to do, the fact that their parents want them to maybe go down their line of work… So for her to go out and to say things like oh, I went to clown college, et cetera, like it’s a negative thing, I think is very ignorant, right?’
“But I think when you look at people who have a communications background, whether it be acting, whether it be theater, whatever it is, their ability to connect with the crowd becomes a lot greater, because it’s the art of communication. How can I communicate what I am feeling to this audience? And because that’s all WWE is. We want to make people feel. And right now, I think they’re feeling a certain way about Becky Lynch.”
You never know how a comment might come back to bite you in the end. Lynch’s days as a stuntwoman helped prepare her for pro wrestling in a different way because it showed her how much she missed it after a seven-year hiatus. Now we will just have to wait and see how long it will be until The Man gets a chance to show Rousey what she learned in “Clown College.”
