Becky Lynch has remained one of the top attractions of WWE television for the past few years now. The Man has also been part of numerous historic moments over the past few years.
Lynch suffered a separated shoulder injury during her match against Bianca Belair at SummerSlam. Due to this, WWE confirmed that Becky Lynch will be gone from the company for “several months.”
WWE is infamous for making their stars memorize scripts and cut them as promos, something that fans do not like. However, a few Superstars have been allowed more leeway with their promos.
While speaking during a recent Instagram Live with The Rock, Seth Rollins, and Brian Gewirtz, Becky Lynch claimed that she gets to write her own promos most of the time. They must hit the important lines, but a lot of their promos are of their own invention.
”Thankfully for me, it’s not like that, and it’s not like that for this guy [Seth Rollins] either. We get a promo and sometimes there’ll be lines in it that you have to hit. They’ll often be that the lines that you’re like ‘That doesn’t sound like she would say that’ But for the most part we’ve gotten to the point where we’ve gotten enough equity, and we’ve gotten enough trust that, we get to write our own promos.
It’s usually a collaborative process where if I’m comfortable with my writer, [I’ll go] ‘Well what do you think of this. I feel like it’s gotta hit more, and I think we could do more with this.’ And a lot of the times they’ll come up with a good line. It’s collaborative that way when you’ve gotten that equity, but I think when you first come up [it’s different]. Like when I first came up, I was too scared to say anything out of turn. I was like ‘oh these are the words on the page, I must say every single word exactly as it is.’ Thankfully, it’s not like that anymore.”
Lynch is already working hard at the gym despite the injury. We will have to wait and see whether Lynch will be back in time for WrestleMania 39, but it looks promising. In the meantime, we’re certain she is coming up with more cutting lines to deliver on the microphone.
