Becky Lynch made her return during WWE SummerSlam and she came back as a heel after destroying Bianca Belair for the Smackdown Women’s Title in 26 seconds. Lynch has always been involved in some of the biggest storylines in recent memory. It seems she hates social media as well.
2018 was certainly the most significant year for Becky Lynch as it led to her rise to superstardom after she suffered a legitimate concussion at the hands of Nia Jax just before Survivor Series 2018. Her impeccable Twitter game after that point and mannerisms simply propelled her to the next level.
While speaking with Graham GSM Matthews of Bleacher, Becky Lynch revealed her opinion on social media. Lynch admitted that despite her strong Twitter game, she hates social media as it can be quite toxic.
“We have a live microphone on us 24/7 and sometimes it can be used for bad and sometimes it can be used to hype something and show more disdain when we’re coming to a big match. I, ironically, hate social media. I think it’s stupid, but I think it has a purpose and that purpose can be used for our work. I don’t think people need to see me brushing my teeth in the morning, but I think people can see how I feel about an opponent and my stories going forward.
You made a good point about fans and how they can interact and follow you and I think that’s awesome. That is great. But one thing we see with social media … I like to use it for wrestling purposes and further a storyline. I think there’s so much — for people’s mental health, I think it can be bad. I think it can be detrimental. I think people compare themselves to each other. It gives people an outlet to be constantly angry about things, and I don’t think that’s good for the world. That’s Rebecca Quinn’s philosophy on social media.”
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.
