Becky Lynch is going through a pretty great run as The Man. She is also being booked like “Stone Cold” Steve Austin. We are not the only ones who see this similarity either.
Lynch has spoken in the past about comparisons to the likes of CM Punk and Steve Austin. Punk has yet to comment about The Man, but Austin is more than happy to speak his mind.
While speaking to MMA On Sirius, Austin said Becky Lynch’s gimmick is over and he didn’t seem to mind any of the comparisons.
“Well, I guess she is if everybody says she is because she does remind me a lot of myself. Because if you line up that women’s roster like I looked the men’s roster when I was still in the ring and you said, ‘Hey I want you to pick out your next break-out Superstar,” I don’t think you’re gonna pick Becky Lynch and
Idamn sure know you wouldn’t have picked me out of a lineup.”
“Nevertheless she has willed herself, she has worked her ass off and studied the game and she got a little bit hot and she got cooled off and then she got a little attitude behind her. She got ticked off and said, ‘Hey man I’m gonna be a star.’ Vince McMahon wants everyone to be a star. He’s gonna set you up and give you opportunities. She made the most of those opportunities and when they tried to slam the door on her she kicked the door down and just burst right through it.”
“I love what she’s doing, I like what she’s done. I like her swagger and she is the hottest thing going right now.”
“She’s not a person whose dwelling on this being the most athletic match in the world. She’s a great worker in the ring, but it’s
character driven— she’s The Man. I love the gimmick.”
“If you’re a chick or a young lady and you’re calling yourself The Man just like Ric Flair used to do, ‘To be the man you’ve got to beat the man.’ This is a whole different entity and the way Becky presents it.”
“Obviously, she’s a female, I think it’s an awesome gimmick and
Ric Flair will forever be known as “The Man,” but to Steve Austin the new Man is money. Just don’t tell Carmella or else another feud over gimmick infringement might start in WWE.
