Becky Lynch was absent from WWE television since May of last year but that changed after she made her shocking return at WWE SummerSlam. Her return was a controversial one after she decimated Bianca Belair to win the Smackdown Women’s title in 26 seconds. It seems Lynch has to say lines even if she doesn’t like them.
Nowadays in WWE that is not the case as most Superstars are always handed a script that they have to remember and speak as part of their promos. A large section of the WWE Universe is not a fan of scripted promos as they feel it highly restricts the characters of WWE Superstars.
While speaking to Jimmy Traina on the SI Media Podcast, RAW Women’s Champion Becky Lynch revealed that she is given creative freedom in her promos. Despite that, she still has to say lines even if Lynch doesn’t want.
“I am given a lot of freedom and then sometimes told, ‘you have to say this.’ There is a lot of freedom and then some lines where I have to say whether I like it or not. You just try and make it work. For the most part, I’m sitting down, thinking about it, and writing up what I want to say.”
Becky Lynch is set to square off against Charlotte Flair in a champion vs champion match at WWE Survivor Series on November 21st. It remains to be seen who will win the match in the end.
